  1. Everything is passable--no aspects of the game are missing, nothing's technically wrong. It's just that it doesn't strive above any of the old, established conventions of the genre. It has an average overwrought RPG story line, average graphics, and an average (to poor) combat system that has shifted from turn-based combat to real-time combat.

    I can't definitively say this is the worst RPG I've ever played. But this does make my Worst 5 of all time.

    I don't know what anyone see's in this poorly made game. The graphics are only average at best, the animation for charecters spells I don't know what anyone see's in this poorly made game. The graphics are only average at best, the animation for charecters spells and what not are terrible. And the combat system blows! If this game was for a lower system I'd think more highly of the game. Full Review »
