Beyond Oasis Review
Beyond Oasis is a fast-paced alternative to The Legend of Zelda that places more emphasis on combat than on exploration.
While I write this there's a 6.7 average score for this game on Gamespot and I honestly don't know why. This was the closest a SEGA fanboy ever got to Zelda and, while it's shallower and less interesting in some aspects,... Read Full Review8 of 10 users found the following review helpful
Great game design and a well made story (even if it is simple) are what make a game test the stand of time. And Beyond Oasis definitely does that. To be honest, I have never actually played Beyond Oasis until recently (a... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
