Before I dive into writing about The Legend of Relic, I want to start off by saying that action RPGs have never been my go-to games. I was never a Zelda fan (although I'm getting there) and I leaned more in the direction of turn-based games like the Final Fantasy series.
That being said, I am absolutely loving this little gem of a game. There's a very high level of difficulty right from the get go that makes you restrain yourself, stops you from running headfirst into what look like easy fights.
It took me a long time to learn this lesson, but now I've been plugging away at the game for coming up to 2 hours and I've got myself steadied and ready to tackle the challenges it brings with a bit more of a sensible head. Only a bit more though, I still go swinging and slashing at enemies pretty often but I've gotten myself to the point where I can just about get away with it.
When I first started playing this I got myself the "Archon" version of the game due to a couple of issues with being able to get the original one, and I don't know if I lucked out or if the game felt sorry for me but I got through it OK. I switched over to this new "Deathtoll" edition and suddenly found things a lot more challenging though, and I'm playing it at the easiest level so I can't even imagine what the higher difficulties are like!
OK, this is getting away from me a bit now, so I'll leave you all with this. If you like action RPGs and a nice warm fuzzy old school feeling and a good challenge, get this game played! And Insydnis, you keep up the awesome work with your games and your music =)
