    Unapreciated Game. It a real-time RPG! Must PLay!!

    This game is a total sleeper. If you like Zelda II, then you would love this game. First of all, this game is 70% real time action and 30% Turn-based. Saying that because sometimes in certain battle situations you random... Read Full Review

    Classic RPG for the NES

    This game is great if you are an RPG gamer. The graphics are great for the NES, fun to play. It's like a mix between Zelda(free battle) and DragonWarrior/Final Fantasy(random battles, magic, items during battle). You ... Read Full Review

    The Magic of Scheherazade is an atypical RPG that is addicting and interesting despite its learning curve for some gamers (I have heard it said that it took some people a while to get used to the game). You play a magici... Read Full Review
