    This game is fun. I'm a little disappointed in the fact that you don't fight the dragon though one of the best GBA games

    It's a shame that the characters you can play with all look and sound the same. Also, when you've played the game one's or twice there is not much fun about it anymore, since the levels and creatures don't chance (like in Diablo 2 PC). But the graphics look nice and gaining levels is also cool.

    There aren't alot of hack and slash action RPGs on the GBA. This is a decent port of the old PS2 classic. Though considerably scaled is still fun. Poor sound though. But...its a portable.

  1. Other than EA’s "Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King," there isn’t a finer action RPG on the handheld. There are slight gameplay and graphical issues, sure, but it doesn’t take much persistence to overcome these, and the positives far outweigh the negatives.
  2. With the deep character growth system in place here I could have been content with twice that amount of game time.

    Though the overall adventure is a bit short and the amount of items and weapons isn’t as great as those found within the console version, the Gameboy Advance version is still a highly polished game and is one that action gamers and RPG fans alike will simply eat up.
