The King of Turn based Rpg games, Was great then still is good now.
The Game difficulty will depends on the characters you choose and tactics used.

The sequel Improves a lot on the original but gets complex and extremely long ,This is Starting game one should play , if getting into Turn based Rpg's

YES THIS GAME IS AMAZING. I've beaten it like 3 times, it is just so much fun! For an old school game they really really did an amazing job on this one. The story was just amazing.

Good solid title in the old skool style, only really let down by the poor inventory management system.
