Summary: Everything you might have heard about the difficulty level of this game is true, it is a beast. Strangely enough, I was surprised to find this an actual flaw. There are many things in this game you will never figure out on your own. Some quests are so obtuse, you have better odds winning the lottery than stumbling upon how to complete it on your own. What I am trying to say is you will be required to reference walk throughs, discussion boards and FAQs.
Just know what you are getting into before you buy

Summary: There some great reviews here that describe the game well. But I've got to give the game 3 stars and not 5 like many here are doing. Why? I like the old school graphics but the graphics repeat a lot. Really folks, you are looking at the same 2D graphics for hours. This is a long game and started to tire of the same level graphics.
Summary: If you have some nostalgia for NES old RPG, this is for you. It is very based on old AD&D ruleset, although nothing is explained toroughly, so it will be confusing at first. The game could certainly benefit from some newer design principle, like using each room for a purpose (especially secret rooms), having less random fights and more scripted stuff. Yet the game is good and I'm enjoying it for what it is.
