After reading Schultz's Kitaro review, this was featured in the "while you're here..." section. I liked the artwork (it looks like Yuzo Takada) so I clicked on it.

And was surprised to see a 10/10 strategy game review! That being said, I totally believe it, because there are a lot of fantastic (but obscure) old strategy games. In fact, I'd daresay they don't make them like they used to. From the screenshots, it looks kind of like the visual style of Shining Force but with a lot more combat options and nuances. And it looks like there's a nice blend of (straightforward) storytelling and different scenarios.

Would you still give this one a 10/10 today? I'm thinking of trying it out. Also, if you have access to a Sega CD, I'd recommend you check out Dark Wizard. The graphics are actually worse, but it sounds like it has a lot of the same aspects you appreciated in this one.

Thanks. I actually reviewed this for OD's All or Nothing comp, and during that time, this was the first time I'd ever played that game. Truth be told, I haven't really played that many old-school strategy games, but I really did like this one because of how much thought had to go into winning a fight. And the fights really are epic; all of them will take at least half an hour to finish, if you're into that sort of thing. The story is pretty straightforward, and figuring out what you need to do is, too, but the real highlight is the battles. And there are some little quirks and things in that game that you can discover. Some of them are quite amusing. It's actually a fairly adult sort of game for Nintendo in some ways. Haha. It's a lot darker in places, too, compared to other strats / RPGs, too. Which is a plus for me.

I'm not sure I'd give it a 10. I was really thinking, even when I reviewed it, that it'd be a really strong 9. But I gave it a 10 because of that contest. But to be fair, I don't give out tens leniently, even for the sake of contests. So I felt it was good enough to warrant the ten anyway even if I felt more strongly towards the very-high 9 range.

You should check it out. You'd probably like it, too. And if you reviewed it, that'd be awesome, especially since a different perspective is always cool. And you won't need the translation patch like I did. Haha.

And no, I don't have access to the Sega CD, but I'll keep that in mind nonetheless.

So how exactly did you get access to this, WQ? Good Emulator reccomendation?

Yeah. That site is where I got the translation patch. I think I got the actual game from either coolrom.com or romnation.net, though. The emulator I use is called NesterJ, but I use a PC, so I don't know if it's compatible with yours.

Yeah, I don't think so... few emulators have been designed for the Mac, oddly enough.

Mm. Should be a n64 emulator called sixtyforce - haven't tried it myself, but apparently it's very good(even if there's some sort of registration if you want to use the snapshot saves, and so on).. But there's a good visualboyadvance port, and a snes9x and znes port out there - work well. DeSmuMe for the ds, if that's something. And there exists a mostly abandoned pcsx port (comparable plugin performance to software plugins in linux).

I think there's a guy maintaining the pcsx2 emulator for osx as well, but it's intel specific.

Or, you can do like a sleazy friend of mine did: convince the boss to order Wmware at work, and then use the windows-emulators. Heard he wasn't happy about the performance afterwards, though.

Zophar's has a pretty good list of emulators for Mac:

http://www.zophar.net/macintosh.html

The best Mac emulation page was at http://emulation.victoly.com/ but it closed. It now points to http://emulation.macscene.net/ and says it's just as good, but as far as I can tell, Macscene is really just a forum, albeit one with knowledgable people on it.

Hey, thanks for the link Bloomer! I think I've been to Zophar's before... when I got my Mother 3 emulator.

But I'm on a new computer now.
