Crystalis is hands down, one of the best games ever released on the NES. Some may say that it is better than Legend of Zelda!
It’s an Action RPG game that rivals Legend of Zelda is many ways.
Crystalis has a really, really good soundtrack straight off the bat. I mean, it’s simply marvelous how everything feels so fitting and jazzy yet keeps you pumped up for action.
The battle system is fairly simple. Swing your sword and attack enemies. Equip armour to reduce enemy damage. Power up your sword to shoot out bullets who’s element affinity is determined by the sword itself. Equip magic and use it.
For NES, the game surprisingly has a bit if depth to it, alongside great graphics.
While the game is great, there are a few flaws. First off the sword itself doesn’t swing, but rather stabs the enemy. This gives the player a much smaller range. This especially becomes a nuisance when fighting flying enemies. Imagine Legend of Zelda where you need to accurately stab the randomly flying Keese. Not fun.
