  • Summary: A masterpiece of game design originally released in the early days of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, ActRaiser's enduring popularity stems from its revolutionary combination of action- and simulation-based game play. The user plays the role of the Master, a dethroned deity whose once-idyllic world has fallen under the control of the Evil One. Stripped of godly power, the Master must somehow put an end to the Evil One's reign and rebuild his desolate realm. Collapse

    A true classic, ActRaiser was one of the most unique games of the 16-bit era, and among the best-looking and sounding even though it was a very early Super NES title! Combining real-time strategy, civilization-building, beat-em-up and action platforming, ActRaiser has something for everyone. Think of it as Civilization-meets-Advance Wars-and-Golden Axe with all of the good and none of the bad. The "god mode" is tremendous fun, but equally-challenging are the action stages you WILL be tested! Throw in slick graphics in the platforming sections and one of the best soundtracks for ANY 16-bit game EVER, and you have a must-play game. Here's hoping Nintendo and Square Enix bring this one to the Wii U Virtual Console. Expand
