    Its a long awaited follow up to a pretty famous Arcade classic. It first appeared on the PS2 as Rygar: The Legendary Adventure...7 years or so ago and it was pretty good mindless fun back then but now it seems to have aged a bit, like most PS2 games.

    The Wii version was supposed to be out in 2007 but for some reason it was delayed and finally came out in Feb this year in the US. The camera is worse and none of the issues from the PS2 game have been addressed, even though they could have. There is pretty much no reason for this game to be ported to the Wii, especially when there is no new content at all.

    I guess you could say its "meh" on the Wii but I guess it depends on how many of these sort of games you have played. Some people liked that Soul Calibur Legends game (cant say I did), this is a lot better than that.

    holy shit! I loved this game on the ps2.

    must play this now~!

    EDIT: IGN and GameSpot gave it a 6.0 - 6.5 just because it's an "old port of a 6 years old game".

    what.the.fuck?
    Not fair. Why didn't they give Chrono Trigger DS a 6.0? Isn't it a 9 years old port?!

    14 years old. Nothing IGN makes sense to be honest.

    Saying that Chrono Trigger is a timeless classic that is just as good now as it was then, while this game isn't. Also the DS version did actually add some new content too.

    I think its more acceptable to see a old game on the DS, especially as most "new" games look about the same. Still a pisser that SE charged full price for it though, money for old rope eh?

    Rygar is also timeless [​IMG]

    Released in the arcades around 1986
    Released on Consoles around 1987 (NES) and later on a few others

    23 years old game, so Rygar is a timeless classic in my eyes [​IMG] (i do preffer the arcade version, so i do hope it is somehow incorperated in the wii version as a secret)

    Yeah the original, for me most 3D games age badly which is a shame.

    Actually I'm playing the snes version of chrono trigger on my wii coz I dont find any good game to play, the game is still great and it has nothing to do with being ported to a partable console or not.
    Soul calibur legends was way better than this.

    I've played through it twice and it's great. Doesn't take long to beat but is a lot of fun.

    It's one of the most underrated Wii games IMO

    The music and boss fights are especially good.
