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.

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.)


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.

I haven't finished either one. Part 1 I enjoy, I just haven't put in the time yet. I thought the sequel was terrible. :?

I've beaten the first ActRaiser but not the second. It's the diving mechanics that get me in it. I just haven't put in the time to pull them off consistently.

That very well may be my problem. My enjoyment is very much eroded by the control scheme. I suspect if I could ever get the hang of it, I might even be praising it from the rooftops.

I mean, I used to hate fighting games, too, but I practiced and got good at them, and now I like them. So it's not inconceivable, anyway.

Hmmm--. No, I have D. I don't feel like that fits in context.
