★★★★★ My favorite Zelda and my favorite game ever. It's not perfect but it's so close it's scary. Amazing atmosphere that I never want to leave.

★★★★★ Mastery of Power: 8 Atk, 1 Magic, 1 Life. Mastery of Wisdom: 1 Atk, 8 Magic, 1 Life. Mastery of Courage: 1 Atk, 1 Magic, 8 Life Always loved this game, even though it was a drastic departure from the first. Still one of the best action RPGs around with some of the best 2D combat around.

🚨 PSA 🚨

If you added a game in the last two days (around June 21) there's a good chance it wasn't actually added to your collection due to the surprise OS upgrade by our host.

This issue should now be fixed, but you'll need to re-add any such games.

I couldn't hold out any longer. I got plans to do more, so we shall see how far I go into Bak'laag's embrace.

Glad to hear it! I'd have to do a little more research about the original release date of the retranslation, but depending on the era, that could explain the insistence upon such unorthodox changes. As someone who's done a little translation work (not for games, unfortunately), I'll say that the idea is to convey the same message, but amateurs sometimes get hung up on the specifics. Things can also get to being a bit pedantic if the attitude is, "Let me show you what you've been seeing wrong all these years." Fortunately, the scene has mostly moved past those kinds of attitudes today. In any case, I hope that you enjoy your future replay! I did also want to mention that in my playthrough, the damage cap was no longer 9999; I don't know if that was a function of the patch, or the ISO itself, since I didn't have the means to rip my own discs at the time I'd played it.

Since it's the only version I have played, I can't tell how good a version it is, but yeah, it has been ported to the SNES, and I liked it quite a bit (especially with the mouse). Aside from Mario Paint it's actually the only game I ever used my SNES mouse for, so that guarantees it a special place in my heart.

Hey! I do try to review most everything I play, so you'll see me here and there. I actually haven't played the PC version, but I imagine that's the one that's on Steam. I'm going on echoes of my failing memory here, but when I did play the version you were reading up on, fellow user, MrRPGcrazy, was telling me that the Steam version had a translation that you could tailor to your desired experience; phoenix tail is purportedly a better translation, but this has features like series-consistent translations, so if a precedent has been set, like phoenix down, you can switch on those terms, but still have the retranslation. I don't remember whether he said it was a mod or whether the translation stuff came stock, though. That may be your best bet, but if you've already played 7 to hell and back, like a lot of us have, this patch to Final Fantasy 7: Nutmeg Edition does fill in the gaps very nicely.

This might be a more personal note, but because I was combing through every line of dialogue just to see what was memorably different (and talking to every NPC, which I hadn't since probably my first playthrough back in '99), I did take notice to some pretty interesting subtleties in the plot, like the true identities of those weird black-robed figures in Nibleheim. It's not without its amateur mistakes, and there's an NPC in Shinra Tower with dialogue so robotic it sounds like it was generated by an AI, but I can absolutely recommend it as a companion piece to the original. Hopefully, this helps!

Cannon Fodder also plays pretty nicely with the SNES mouse.
