I must have played over 400 hours of this game heck maybe even more, I rebought it here on steam as my old disk became unable to load after 15 years of dragging it in and out of the CD rom.. It is a wonderful delight for any old comic book fan. the characters are campy like the old batman/superman tv shows. The stories are fun, the characters are a hoot, like the fun loving sea eurchant, to the speedy sounthern boy bullet, Or the master of mind control mentor. It has massive replayablity with leveling different characters, (i think there are 15+ and You could play through the game 10 times and still have more characters to try, and character combo's to use as using characters and getting XP canisters to level up, really makes them shine. So who you bring on each mission, and which ones you give canisters to, can really change the whole feel of the game.
I will say, the interface and game play takes a lot to get used to, if you aren't familiar with the older GUI's from the 90's, but once you figure out how the hits work, and AOE powers and such, it really is fantastic. Just play the game in win98 Compatiibitly and run as an Admin and you will have no issues. I have very rarely hit a bug, and typically when they happen, just restart the mission and you should not see it again. Just remember to make a save after or before each mission just incase, as the auto-saves are not very often.
One of my favorite games ever made, while FFII, was good, it just is not as good as the first. It is to bad that Irrational never made a third.. maybe one day, but till then try it.. It is "Antastic!"
