Lukie came through for me again, with a pretty good price for this classic game as well as sending it to me in great condition with the case also doing pretty well. Which is weird; you see, I clicked it "Game Only" on purpose - I owned this awhile ago. And a few years ago I actually went to check it out, and found that the game had disappeared! Over the years, who knows where it could've gone. Maybe a cousin of mine has it, or worse, an old roommate. I dunno; it's long gone. So I wanted a replacement for awhile, and I figured I could finally get one -- just the CD -- from Lukie here! I've gotten games in just paper sleeves before, so I figured this was perfect. I clicked "Game Only" and ordered away! When I received this game, I got it! AND THE CASE! Now I have two cases and one copy of the game :P Oh well; not really a problem, just some funny joke the Universe must be playing on me - whatcha gonna do?
The game is actually pretty great; I've never gotten that far into it in the past, but plan on really diving in this year some time. I've always been impressed with its production values; from the beginning fully modeled 3D intro (the plays like the opening to a wacky anime, that's done by all the characters on a stage like for a play) to in-game action, its easy to see why Matrix Software was such a standout developer back in the day. They went on to do the Final Fantasy III and IV 3D Remakes for Square, and Final Fantasy: 4 Heroes of Light - its actually kind of a shame to see such a promising team back in the 90's STILL making games that pretty much look the same these days. But man was it standout stuff back here in Alundra 2!
A great game, arrived in great condition (better than I asked for, technically) for a great price. Nothing to complain about here! :)
