Years after it was posted, I want to comment on this review, simply because it's a game I have a lot of memories of. This and the two NES Zelda games were the entirety of my RPG experience until Secret of Mana (unless you count Shadowgate, which I don't).

I think this review does the game justice and balances the positive and negative aspects, which is always nice. It's certainly true that I kept coming back to the game, however frustrating it became. I'm tempted to disagree about the difficulty though - I found it to be a very difficult game, but maybe that's because I was eleven.

'There would be tears and there would be strange laughter. Fierce births and deaths beneath umbrageous ceilings. And dreams, and violence, and disenchantment.'
