90

Great RPG, but has trouble running on modern systems

(I also published this review to Steam, Metacritic, and HowLongToBeat)

Overall, this is a great game. Full voice acting and impressive graphics for 1999 combine with an exciting story and interesting character development to make a memorable experience. Fans of the early Final Fantasy games should truly enjoy this game.

Its biggest flaw is that the combat system can become boring or even tedious after a while. I also found it frustrating that enemy health bars are hidden by default. If either of those bother you too much, there are cheat codes (true to any 90s game) to fix both of those problems.

Disclaimer: I played the disk version of this game, and purchased the Steam version because I lost the disk. I've heard rumors of bugs in the Steam version, but I emailed Topware support and they said that they were working to resolve them. I couldn't get it to work at all in Windows 8.1 though.

Pretty good game I have to say

Economical , not wordy , animations inserted only where you need it. Simple Keyboard controls in the majority of substitutable by rat - allows you to concentrate on the game. Easy to move around the locations and maps , logical and nuanced combat system (no long animation sequences when casting spells - a little animation of course is ) and of scenario: linear (which may be too big an advantage it is not) , but all in all legible and łopatologiczny . You have to pay attention to details and sometimes brains in gear . The next steps are indicated by clear instructions , but you have to catch them - otherwise remains legwork on the map and a studded points in consecutive fights. You can see that gentlemen authors pointed this out , because sometimes when a man is too good and too quickly moves to the next stages , it is the way goes to the opponents who clearly are prepared stronger team. To sum . For sure this is not some discovery . It's fairly well made ​​up for a lesson , however ( and therefore ) highly recommend it to everyone who can devote several hours to the salvation of the world. Incredibly time consuming !

PS: As a young man how it played , I remember that even ran off a full walkthrough for the game, because I did not know how to get a piece!
