Now this was one game i used to play down my local arcade all the time and i absolutely loved it,coin after coin would go into the machine and i would allways feel like i was playing the best game in all creation.
Then i grew up,i still love this game (thats why i bought it and the original) but find that my love for it has dimminished somewhat.I think its because we have so many good and great games these days that we forget where games first came from and how simplistic they were,but i just dont feel the same playing this now as i did when i was that YOUNG man all them years ago.
Now let me say this the game itself is still the same,and DON BLUTHS animation is still as great as i remember and so is the voice acting and the in game music.Its just not the same experience as i remember and to be honest i have played through twice and dont think i will be doing so again in a hurry,which is a shame as one of the most fondly remembered games of my childhood has not stood the test of time and thats why i cant reccomend it to gamers of today.
I still love the game but find that the magic has worn of and i dont know if i should have played it again as now i know what great games are i cant really settle for just sitting pushing buttons in one direction or the other and hitting A to use my sword at times.
So i would reccomend it but only in the sales (and if it was cheap) and yes i would in a bundle also,but i cant in all good merit really reccomend it at the price it is.
