    Edit: JPH, have you played the FF's or Lunar: Dragon Song? Those aren't bad.

    I love this game. I bought it, too.

    Everyone should at least give it a try. Very fun. Just remember, dying is part of the experience. This isn't a traditional RPG. It's a rogue-like, NetHack variant.

    They should have kept this game a mystery.

    Lunar? No, it's not bad. It's awfully terrible. Te-rri-ble. Avoid it like the plague.

    It's a port of a Japan-only SNES game.

    Yeah, I've played the games Final Fantasy and must say they're all boring.

    Not tried Lunar, but it doesn't look too fun.

    I'll give this game a try later, and hopefully I won't be as disappointed.

    Meanwhile, DQM: Caravan Heart is a go! [​IMG]

    Shinren is awesome, give rouge-type games a good name.

    check out the message board of shiren in gamefaqs.com. Its very active.
    This game is quite good. You'll just have to learn to appreciate roguelike games to enjoy playing this.

    For people who've played both, is this better or worse than Izuna? I've got a lot to play right now, but I'll squeeze this in if it's better than Izuna. Opinions?

    I love this game, it's full of endless fun for me. [​IMG]

    I'll be buying it once it's available in my local GAME store.

    No, nothing like gauntlet. This is a roguelike not an action game.

    Roguelike is just the genre of game. Like RPG, MMO, Strategy, or FPS.
