While I would consider this game to be one of the best game gear games out there - it was very hard/frustrating.
Nothing like grabbing your white silk pajamas, your sword and taking on some bad guys in the middle east.
The music on this game was great, the sound effects awesome and the game was very challenging. Often times I had a hard time just getting past the first few levels.
Keep in mind my game gear was on the decline at this point and the d-pad was pretty worn out.
Even so - it was hard to jump certain spots and fight certain guys in parts of levels.
If you want a challenge this is it.
All in all - this game was probably the best action adventure game on the game gear that I played (or close to it) and led to an amazing PS2 title.
This game was really innovative and revolutionary at the time and the game gear made it come to life in ways the game boy could not.
