Reviewed by Jon Kristjan Kristinsson We follow the story of Ark, a boy that lives in the underground world. He's sent on a mission to earth. Humans, animals and flowers have been changed into monsters. He has to free their souls from the monsters so they can be reborn in their rightful body. But that's not the end. After saving humans he has to follow their evolution and help them for some time before being able to return back home.

Graphics 9 out of 10

It's not the greatest graphics for the Super NES but still its pretty good. Ark (the main character) looks pretty good. The Ring Magic graphics look pretty fine. I would have liked to have more character animation for the other people who you talk to. Sometimes they are supposed to be standing in front of a table but still they look like they're walking. But that's not really degrading the gaming experience. Well, let's go to the sound.

Music and Sound 8 out of 10

The music sounds pretty good although there might be a little bit more variation for the towns or something. However the music is still good. The sound is okay. But maybe it's just because it is on Super NES. You can't expect the sound to be like heavy good but it's nice sound.

Game Challenge 9.5 out of 10

It's really got good balancing on the difficulty. The Towers in the beginning is a bit of a challenge for beginners. But one thing I would like to point out. Maybe it's just because I stinked and couldn't get a high enough level and had the wrong weapon, but when I got to Bloody Mary (a end-boss) I found that it took quite a lot of time since I took only 1 or 2 from her life per hit. It took me about 45 minutes to kill her.

Game Play-Fun 9 out of 10

Game play's really good and I personally like it much more to have RPG's more action-based not turn-based. Like Zelda (if you don't understand me). Of course when you're stuck and are trying to find something of value in the game, then it really gets boring to travel around the world on foot, on a ship or in a plane. Or when you're trying to find an entrance through a pile of rocks that surrounds the Antarctic. But when you're not traveling then it's just like your normal Action/RPG. Which is good.

Replayability 5 out of 10

There's not much to do else than just play through the game again, which is not that bad. It really doesn't get too boring to play it again. But of course you shouldn't expect replayability like Fallout or Baldur's Gate (PC games, just in case you don't know).

Game Value 9.5 out of 10

Let me ask you a few questions before you read on: Did you like Zelda: A Link to the Past (or just any Zelda game)? Did I hear a yes?? Well, then buy Terranigma, it's really worth the money for you. Or did I hear NOOOOO????? Then just do the obvious. See if one of your friends owns the game. Well, like it??? Ok, ok. Let's skip this. Let's keep it plain and simple! Do You Like Action Games? Do you like RPGs? Well if you do then this game might be the game for you. It has a great story and great game play so it should be worth the money. Really! I'm not kidding.

Overall 9 out of 10

The game has great Game play and a very strange but great story. Mediocre graphics and Mediocre Sound. If you like action/RPGs then go for this game (otherwise, if you're more for Turn based RPGs then go for Chrono Trigger). Just for a last comment, I didn't finish the game completely (HEHEHE! Fooled ya!). And I would like to encourage people who have actually finished the game to write a Review for this game because this review actually sucked pretty much.
