Summary

A little bit better than the original game

The Good

The new content, more quests, more areas to go and just more than the original game

The dragon quest was amazing, with great graphics and fluid movements. It was challenging and felt better of an ending boss than the original games ending boss.

Avo's Tear was really cool because i was always good and really wanted the Sword of Aeons in the original game but i had to throw it away.

The money glitch is really cool in TLC and is (probably) better than the glitch in the original. When you get level 7 guile, sell all gems to any trader and than buy them back and you get 100+ gold for each.

Also, during the souls quest, if you go through the demon door in Darkwood Bordello, look around for a digging spot and when you dig there, you will find an exp. augmentation.

The Bad

You couldn't do the glitches as in the first game such as the dig glitch.

It is really hard to get the 30 key chest since one of the keys you need to get requires you to marry lady grey but that isn't the end of the quest since there is more to lady grey ( i wont spoil what she did but if you tell the guard about it you get good points and become the mayor of Bowerstone but if you marry lady grey you have to (i believe) accept to cover up the incident and get evil points for it).

ONE VERY BAD THING: They brought down the damage of every weapon in the game so the Sword of Aeons in the original game (550) was brought down significantly in the new game (230) and now the weapon with the most damage is the Solus great sword (315)

The Bottom Line

A game that should be in all gamers libraries and is defiantly worth the money (xbox version is 30$ less than the original's price on release).
