☆★★★★ A must-play, though still the weakest entry in the Professor Layton series. Here the setting and characters feel somewhat less interesting than usual; a certain undefinable quality is lacking. Also, on the puzzle side of things, there is emphasis on math more often than there should be, and are just weaker overall. On the other hand, the enhancements it makes to systems from the first game are very much welcome. Solving puzzles feels like a smoother task from here on in.

★★★★★ When this game came out, it left me fascinated with how utterly unique it was. In many ways, I still feel that way. There is great variety and creativity in the graphics department, while sound stands out with unorthodox music and effects. Gameplay is frantic and remains interesting throughout, creating complex challenges around very simple interactions. The interface is immersive and functional, and feels quite refined. Characters are engaging, and the range of microgames offered is wide.

★★★★★ This game is rough around the edges, but the ideas contained in it stand out. The concept of traveling around a world very akin to our own while ressurecting its elements and achieving the growth of life and culture is incredible, with a fresh execution that feels like a better developed Seiken Densetsu. Graphics are good for what they are, as is sound as a whole. Ark is a great non-cliché protagonist, and the plot is very good, quite ahead of its time in terms of content and execution.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons
[RA] (beat: July 21, 2013)

Updated about 3 weeks ago

☆★★★★ Oracle of Seasons boasts unique characters and situations. Art direction is great and varied. Movement is fluid and the map system is really good. Mechanics-wise, rings are both useful and interesting, adding a new layer, while season changing is entertaining and creates nice puzzles. Difficulty is generally high, but not overly so. The problem though is that your goals often feel very confusing. Ring: R7"left"=# j!$Bb b&"heart"=) Labrynna: N7"left"("spade" M6"up"$b wjWF? =#*"left"=

Hey! Saw your comment on RA, but couldn't respond to your timeline for some reason. Anyway, thanks! Donkey Kong on the NES was hard...but nothing compared to it on the original Arcade.

You're kicking butt yourself - I honestly am amazed how many achievements you are managing to get.

Thanks for the response! I definitely plan to give it a shot. Not sure where I'll begin, but probably some weird NES RPG or the like. I'll add you for sure, and be sure to let you know my thoughts on whatever given sets I decide to run through.

Hey man! I noticed you're playing a lot of games with Retro Achievements. They seem really interesting, how would you rate the overall quality of the achievements you've done so far?

That site has interested me for years, but it always seemed super niche with not enough people making achievement lists for games. It is such a fantastic idea.

I appreciate that, but my OCD won't allow me to start in the middle of a series except in a couple very rare exceptions. EO4 did definitely look like the ideal place to start based on what I read about the franchise, and it's undeniably a huge step up in terms of both looks and QoL from what I can see. Very few people even recommend the original EO anymore. But I didn't find it too bad to get into, and much enjoyed my time with it. If and when I get the hankering for some more Etrian Odyssey I will probably jump into EO2 with both feet.

Why thank you, good sir! Persona Q made me appreciate the formula, so I thought I'd give it a go. A stiff challenge, but using Immunize + Defender for FOEs and bosses and Allslash + Ambush for random battles made it a not-too-difficult experience.

No braver than you though, I see. You've got many an Etrian Odyssey game on me. If they're as long and tough as this one, you have way more to be proud of!
You are yourself. There's no one else you could be.
