That hiccup aside, Light Crusader is a welcome addition to the VC and one that should keep dedicated adventurers busy until next Friday at least.
Light Crusader caught people by surprise when it was first released; it simply could not be any less akin to Gunstar Heroes. Treasure are famed for their action games and while their first (and to date, only) foray into the world of fantasy RPGs isn’t 100% successful, it’s certainly worth checking out if you’re a fan of this style of game. Perhaps it will attract a whole new legion of fans thanks to this VC release?
So Light Crusader isn't lacking depth, and it's certainly home to a fair and playable isometric adventure. The thing that makes it seem just a little bland overall, though, is its contrast with the other much more notable and much more energetic past games developed by the same company. Almost all of Treasure's other efforts in the 16-bit era where fast-paced shooters, immediately engaging and over-the-top from the first minute. Light Crusader isn't so instantly accessible, and actually takes quite a while to get into before you really feel like you're starting to have some fun. Weigh out your own level of potential commitment before making an investment in this one – and if you find yourself unwilling to spend the cash here, think about grabbing one of Treasure's more explosive adventures instead.
