SoulBlazer is the best. I haven't played enough The Granstream Saga to have an opinion about it. Terranigma is an alright game but rather overrated overall. (Now excuse me while I run from the pitchforks.)

In 2005 Rockstar set out to create an epic western tale of unprecedented proportions. Five years later with the aid of over 800 development staffers and a budget approaching $100 million, Rockstar succeeded in producing exactly that. Mission absolutely accomplished.

What is Red Dead Redemption? It is the ultimate cowboy and/or outlaw western fantasy, encapsulating everything that is great about the genre. Huge and magnificent vistas await your exploration, with graphics that are absolutely convincing. Seedy outlaw towns, brothels, and saloons are there for your amusement as well. Danger, excitement, and thrills await at every bend of the horizon. If you've seen it done in a western, chances are RDR will let you do it too.

Not that RDR doesn't have its own ideas for a story, because RDR has a fantastic plot with one of the most daring best endings I've ever seen in a video game. (Stellar voice acting and cutscene direction aid in the delivery of this aspect.) Wicked combat with guns and action galore keep the pace exciting. Wily horses are a thrill of their own. From treasure hunting, to poker playing, to throwing horseshoes, to arm wrestling, to fighting cougars, and so much more... boredom is a word seldom heard. The dynamic soundtrack fully fits the atmosphere and is outstanding. And tarnation ain't these graphics pretty!

There's so much stuff crammed into RDR I could write ten paragraphs and still only scratch the surface. I'll just say this; if you enjoy westerns, moral freedom, and epic adventure, Red Dead Redemption is an experience you simply cannot miss. Grab your six shooter, a steed you can trust, and tip your Carlsbad goodbye. Once you ride out on this range it's gonna take a posse to bring you back.

Soul Blazer is tons of fun. Terranigma is one of my favorite action-RPGs of all time. You can't go wrong with either.

Unfortunately, I did not. I still need to find it. However, that game has skyrocketed on my want list and I will hopefully be picking it up sooner rather than later.

The only other Quintet game I have is ActRaiser and I still haven't played that yet. But, I have heard great things about SoulBlazer, so so words about Granstream Saga and that Terranigma is either overrated or fantastic. In fact, I know some guy who played through Terranigma recently and thought it was a little overrated as well.

Ah, I forgot about the original ActRaiser. I remember beating that entire game in one night when I was twelve years old. So that means it must be both short and quite fun. From what I can recall it was really good.

ActRaiser 2... your mileage may vary.

ActRaiser 2 is just disappointing on so many levels. It's unfair, has a pretty terrible control scheme, and has no sim elements at all.

ActRaiser is a game that is greater than the sum of its parts. There's something about the fusion of sim and action elements that makes it great, even if neither are sterling examples of the genres. It's also got one of the best soundtracks of all time.
