I've been interested in this game, and I still am to be honest...but your review definitely puts it a bit further down on my already overwhelming "to play" list.

It took me ages to get up the desire to play this game. I tried at various times since its release to get into it, but only recently did I force myself. I kind of regret that...

I think it's a fair review, though it's important to keep it in context with the NES era. I played this when I was young on the NES, I actually managed to still keep the NES cartridge since then (though no longer have my NES) and though it was confusing and difficult it didn't feel abnormally so compared to a lot of other games I played on the NES. I still have very fond memories of it. The scale of the game and the mysterious puzzles really captured my imagination. I highly recommend it with an open mind.

I played the game when it was fairly new and I wasn't impressed with it then, either. I found it more tolerable then, because games like this were more of a social experience. They prompted you to get with other gamers to compare notes. It hasn't aged well, though. The review is not meant to be a retrospective, but an indication of whether or not I recommend the game nowadays. Some people do still enjoy the title, and that's good. However, my own experiences with it were not so wonderful.
