    It's just too darn short. It's not even as difficult as its PS2 counterpart, so you'll blow through it relatively quickly. [Jan 2003, p.65]

    The three hours or so it took me to finish were incredibly fun, with not one ounce of tedium or monotony anywhere to be found - a rarity these days. [Jan 2003, p.64]

    Easily the coolest "Diablo"-style RPG available on any console, and the fact that it looks almost hotter than it plays is icing on the cake. [Jan 2003, p.58]

    The city in the Glitter Oasis level quickly morphs into barren roads and cliffs, making an initially fun level barren, bleak, and boring. [August 2002, p.48]

    Frustrating at times. Restarting a level 38 times before you beat it makes it hard to look upon the experience fondly, after all. [Oct 2003, p.57]
