a crpytic and terribly flawed game.
this game has been the talk of gamers since it released back in the 80s and very much so. first the positive. the day and night thing was a new idea, though not executed well, it still brought something dark and scary in a sense that the monsters themselves couldn't do. the game itself feels better and looks better. but the negatives out weight the positive. the major ones are monster placements, so lifeless and yet so annoying. townspeople are a bunch of liars and what they tell you is cryptic. hearts you gather are currency, but once you die 3 times and continue you lose ALL of your hearts. no boss battles in the game, and when they do, they're dumb down and super easy that you can walk pass them and you're decked out with super strong weapons. the game is SO convoluted that you literally need a walkthrough to beat the game, i myself spend more time reading th walkthrough than playing th game. if wish to buy this game, go ahead but be prepared to be frustrated as well as confused.
