The game that launched a series in the USA.

What can I add that hasn't already been said for this game? I remember the Summer this game came out, toting around an issue of Nintendo Power or somesuch magazine that had a review of this game. I looked over this review for weeks on end, just waiting to try this game out. For a 12-year old kid, this wasn't disappointing. I was enthralled! I did rent the game at first and loved every minute of it. As a kid, I had lots of time to waste on levelling up. And I fondly remember that point in the game where you get to change your class to that super-version of each character. That was awesome and quite innovative.

I can't even remember if I've played this game ever since I played it those long years ago. I do have it via emulator somewhere around here, and if I ever get the time, I may just possibly play it. But there's a huge difference between being 12 and all grown up with a full-time job. It's hard enough finding time to write reviews like these.

If you have a few minutes to spare, by all means fire this baby up and see what started the whole shebang in the US.
