    Despite its clever design and often charming presentation, however, the game unfortunately winds up being too quirky for its own good in many cases. [Feb 2000]

    This game is a forgotten gem in the midst of an era of transition between 2D and 3D games, something that influenced this is your styleThis game is a forgotten gem in the midst of an era of transition between 2D and 3D games, something that influenced this is your style "cutesy" oriental, very badly accepted in Western lands. Of to say the game looks is a Kirby merger with Megaman, including the game is very similar to Megaman in its controls. But mechanics of gameplay is very innovative, separation of enemies in Silhouette and Mirage is very well thought out as it was with the HP and "Mana" of the protagonist. On top of this, the story is quite deep, full of secrets that are revealed along the way. Worth leaving the ridiculous prejudice that has for many graphics and pay attention to the finer details of this amazing game.

    Sorry for my bad English, I am Brazilian and I did not learn very well yet. The text in Portuguese is below.

    Este jogo é uma pérola esquecida em meio a uma era de transição entre os jogos 2D e 3D, algo que influenciou isto é seu estilo "cutesy" oriental, muito mal aceito em terras ocidentais. Da para se dizem que a aparência do jogo é uma fusão de Kirby com Megaman, inclusive o jogo é bem parecido com Megaman em seus controles. Porém, mecânica de jogabilidade é muito inovadora, a separação dos inimigos em Silhouette e Mirage é muito bem pensada já que foi aliada ao HP e "Mana" da protagonista. Além de tudo isso, a história é bem profunda, cheia de segredos que são revelados ao longo da jornada. Vale a pena deixar o preconceito ridículo que muitos tem pelos gráficos e prestar atenção nos detalhes bons deste jogo incrível.

    This game is so cutesy that it makes me sick...boring enemies and bad plot. I feel sorry for all of those who actually bought this.
