It might be a cultest-type game but even a cristian like me would like the chaos, through every level, you might find somthing of interest from old buildings, half-destroyed urban areas, a few overturned cars on the littered roads of old Tokyo.... Very, very good.... What makes it even better is among the ruins you'll encounter creatures like: Faries, Beasts, even deamons like the Succubus and Incebus! Oh, and you can make alliances with some creatures that you encounter, too. My advise to you, the player, would be to make as much allies as you can by any means nessesary: Bribeing, draning energy, giving items, pumbling creatures senceless, destroying all creatures but one and intiminating it to join or die And i'm VERY sure city-slikers would like the half-cat creatures joining...(hehehe....) ANYWAYS, that about raps up the review so... kick-back, relax and have some fun!

This is a good game, in my opinion. Use to own it years ago. Then someone stole my copy (while leaving me their strategy guide for the game). The game however is hard. And I mean wickedly insanely hard. You'll be going along, then BAM! You're in an unavoidable fight against something you probably can't beat cause the enemy hits freaking hard, hits everyone, and half your party is weak to it's attacks.

Or maybe you'll be able to escape combat, but you're party gets the stuffing knocked out of it by the enemies popping up every three steps in the area you must go through. Stuff like that happens fairly frequently. So save often.

That doesn't mean it's a bad game, just insanely hard. I love the game. I plan on tracking down a copy of my own. But it's also a game that can be very frustrating. So I give this a six out of ten. Awesome game with difficulty issues. Kinda reminds me of a certain NES game cough ghosts'ngoblinscough
