    Better than the original in almost every respect. [Aug 2003, p.80]

    The play control is responsive and intuitive, but the difficulty is high from the first battle. [July 2003, p.146]

    Although the core gameplay’s still pretty mundane, nearly all the faults of the original have been fixed. The control’s much more forgiving (you can actually land combos now), the graphics aren’t so drab anymore, and the music’s a dead ringer for the anime soundtrack.

    The overarching plot is fittingly epic and the graphics are fine, but plebian puzzles and problem-fraught combat guarantee frustration in this humdrum quest. [July 2003, p.123]
