SNES Classic RPG's
Left-out-even-as-this-article-appeared Classic: Lufia 1/2
Made in: 1992/5 By Natsume,Taito
Beat that frog down!.....at least
its not always a "Sword" :)
As the(I think) only RPG game
released in 1992, Lufia 1 had a lot of people try it out. Its
awful if you compare it to more Hard-core RPG's(FF2/3/4/5/6/etc)(Wiz
1/2/3/4/5/6/7). But its a easy pace for everyone
What Mystic Quest(shudder)
should have been. It was awful, nuff said.
Dont get me started on the
The Odd, But Fun: Harvest Moon
Made in: 1995 By Nintendo/Natsume
Nice game, only could find a
dutch version though :)
In usual RPG's, you have a few basic ideas: Save the
Princess, Save the World, Blah, BLah BLAH....but if you have
played this one, you already know something is DIFFERENT about
this one......... The main goal: Raise a farm. Probably made by
Iowegians, this game takes you into the life of a farmer, from
feeding cows, harvesting crops, and plain ole getting a wife.
Quirky as this title is, its still a nice game. Here are the
features that make this game unique:
and yet....its all fun :)
A nice title which you can have fun farming..............a
game thats educational and fun? Theres a reason to play games :)
(But Mom, its Educational!)
The Rare and the
Expensive: Ogre Battle
Made in: 1995 By Quest
Most people did not play this on SNES. Expensive and limited
edition, but worth it. Ogre Battle can be amazingly well done or
shrouded in mystery. Re-released on Playstation, the SNES
version has all the PSX big brother has, and No loading(yes!)
Many, Many endings when the only endings you got were cheap
ones. Basically, this game spawned a new genre(along with
Shining Force and Feda) of RPG's into mainstream. Don't sit down
with this game for too long.....You WILL get hooked.
Here are some features in this game:
controlled primarly by your reputation
Great Graphics(One of the
BEST looking on SNES)
Sub Quests Galore!
Hidden Items and Towns make
you explore again and again the same maps
Nice battle system, though it
seems too automated.
The PSX version has one fatal flaw: the loading. It takes
the life out of the game. The SNES version, if you can FIND it,
is much easier and look almost-almost- the same as the PSX.
A nice, refreshing(also, HARD) game which take its credit
for releasing it when not many were.
