Soul Blazer -- Enix America Corp.

The fate of every soul on your planet rests in your hands in Soulblazer, for the SNES. The King has forced the great inventor, Dr. Leo, to create a machine to summon the prime evil, DeathToll. When DeathToll arrives, the greedy King strikes a deal with him. The King trades the souls of every being on his planet in return for one piece of gold for each soul DeathToll receives. It is your quest to free the souls and defeat DeathToll in this exciting role playing game by Enix.

Soul Blazer actually does live up to its ads of being the best cross between Zelda and Actraiser. I was impressed with the graphic detail put into this game. Not a slow moment--mentally or physically--in this game. The music was soothing, not annoying like so many RPGs are. The only disappointment was your inability to skip messages. If you accidentally click on a character a second time, you must wait through the entire message a second time. Tedious. Other than that, no faults to speak of. With such high priced cartridges anymore, this one is worth the bucks.

Ah! A role-playing game as good as Zelda III and Actraiser. Enix has done an awesome job on this role-playing epic. I like this style of game a lot--a perfect blend of action and RPG. SNES now has another awesome role-playing game. Music is pretty good. Graphics are very good and definitely worth seeing. This game will most certainly keep the avid adventurer busy. Excellent game Enix!

This is a great R.P.G. It can be a bit frustrating at times to play, but if you have patience it can be a very rewarding game. Average graphics and sound, excellent control, but one heck of an involved, deep, dark storyline. Although I'm not to sure I'd play it through twice, I would definitely recommend this game for a complete play-through. That alone could take several days, if not more, of dedicated playing to do, however.

This is my type of game. Soul Blazer is an excellent title. The play is in many ways mindful of Zelda III, and in some ways even better. The graphics are excellent, particularly for an RPG. The music is also phenomenal. The story is interesting and involving, and I like how you create the next world you will visit as you solve the last one. Two thumbs up.
