This game has gotten a lot of attention here, both good and bad. Since I finally broke down and bought it I thought I'd throw out my thoughts on it. Never done a review format but am hoping to start a trend in this part of the forums. Please limit responses to additional reviews/quick reviews.
-Gameplay is solid. Occasionally the game misses a special attack input and continues attacking but nothing gamebreaking. My largest complaint was the handling of item/skill usage. Rather than having the tried and trusted L+button for attacks and R+button for items, the game opted for an awkward L+button to use, and R to change between items or skills. The skills are well balanced and well animated in the 8-bit feel.
-Graphics look very good. Not visually stunning but gives a perfect retro zelda feel.
-Sounds are ok, but the attack noise can get annoying if you're playing in a quiet room.
-Story. I haven't beaten this yet but the story is strong enough to hold the game together. The flavour text from NPCs are humorous, even poking fun at standard game mechanics and ignoring the 4th wall.
-Longevity. I'm playing as an evil warrior and will definitely replay at least once to see the good story, as well as try rogue.
9/10 - though given the price I'm dropping it to an 8. Deffinitely worth playing, am going to get quite a bit of playtime from this, but at nearly the price of a PS1 classic RPG this seems almost overpriced. The small filesize won out.
