Reviewed by Gabe Jones Actraiser is a very unique game. One of the Older games for the Super Nintendo, I became very involved in this game after I rented it. Actraiser combines good graphics, excellent music, good gameplay, It is quite lacking in replayability but it is still an excellent game.

Graphics 9 out of 10

The game is split into 2 parts, a regular action mode with really good detail, and huge and well animated characters. The other mode is a kind of Simulation where you take the role of a angel looking guy who flies around helping the town grow and shooting enemies with arrows. The action side, has very good graphics, while the simulation is kind of drab and unappealing but still all right. The bosses in this game are some of the best.

Music and Sound 9 out of 10

The Music in Actraiser is awesome to say the least. The Music draws you in and while nice peaceful music accompanies the simulation, yet in the action area, the Music gets intense and is really involving. The sound effects are effective, well done sword swings, the screams of dying monsters, and other cool FX.

Game Challenge 9 out of 10

The simulation mode is not that tough, but the enemies can give you headaches though, since they are always flying around and taking your townspeople away. The Real Challenge comes from the action areas, The Levels contain many traps and tough enemies, The Bosses will give you nightmares, You can get level ups in the game to increase your health but that only happens in Simulation mode when you get enough townspeople. Plus after you beat the game you can access an even harder Mode.

Game Play-Fun 9 out of 10

The Control is well done, The menus are intuitive and simple, Its real easy to get into the game even without a manual. Plus the controls are simple enough, most of the time you press one button to attack, one to jump. Movement can be a little sluggish at times, but that is not too much to complain about. The game is a lot of fun, the 2 modes keep the game fresh and replayable.

Frustration

I was Frustrated at the beginning because you have a real short health meter when you first start, but once you start getting some level ups the game becomes a lot easier to handle, the aggressive enemies in the simulation mode might get on your nerves too, but it is still more challenge than frustration and it will stay entertaining to the end.

Replayability 6 out of 10

The Game is Replayable because of the extra hard difficulty, yet if you have gone through the game once, then you have seen everything, The probably would have stayed fresher if there were more levels, and multiple paths and secret areas to make them more interesting. Most of the levels in the game are too straightforward.

Game Value 8 out of 10

The Game is a great value you can usually find it used for under 30 dollars, it will surely be hours of fun, So it is worth the price.

Overall 8 out of 10

Actraiser is a good game, diminished only by its low Replay Value, after you beat the game on both difficulties then its all over, the game could have used better level design and a longer game overall, I was able to beat this game in around two days, but it was extremely fun and well done game.
