This game was simply just plain awesome back in 1996. It is one of my favorite games. Whats so great about this game is that you're the evil side instead of good! Kick ass!
Upsides to the game:
#1: Great graphics for a game of its timeline in 1996. +1
#2: Excellent sound quality for the most part. +1
#3: Every monster has its ups and downs, as well as having abilities to use against enemies. +1
#4: You can use your earned gold to use spells either on your own characters, or use them on enemies. +1
#5: The monster possessing is pretty cool. +1
#6: The campaign is pretty fun to play. +1
I'm rating this game a solid A. The only problem with the game of course, is that it's really old (14 years old), and the newer the Operating Systems are these days, the harder it is to play the more older games, unless you tweak it somehow. I haven't played this game in months (I probably won't for a good long time either). The game kinda gets old after a while, but it's fun nonetheless.
