    This game was my favourite among the Turbo-Grafx16 games and all I can say is that it is unique! It has minimal graphics and combat complexityThis game was my favourite among the Turbo-Grafx16 games and all I can say is that it is unique! It has minimal graphics and combat complexity but yet the atmosphere of the game is very powerful thanks to the AMAZING music. I was extremely surprised back in the 90's when I started going deeper in the game and just couldn't believe how the music and graphics could go together! I mean, the graphics aren't ugly at all, but they're typical for the 1989 era. The music though.. most games still don't compete with that quality and intensity today. It is worth trying this unique game, although I don't think it's available anymore since the Wii Shop closed. Expand
