Misses the final touch

Reviewed By: Keiyuu on 12 Jan 2021

Sadly, I cannot fully recommend this patch yet. The thing is that Terranigma is a partly optimized PAL game, meaning that while the gameplay in the PAL version does run slightly slower than the NTSC original, the developers optimized the music to play in proper sync with the “cutscenes”. With this patch the PAL version is forced to run at 60Hz which brings the gameplay to its original speed, but in turn the music gets out of sync with the scenes. This is for instance noticeable during the longer intro sequence before you start the game.

While this may not be a deal breaker for everyone who just wants to play the game at 60Hz without caring about these inaccuracies, as a huge fan of the game I can’t recommend this patch as the definitive Terranigma experience *yet*.

To my knowledge the music desync is something that can be fixed as this has also been done for the NTSC patches for Actraiser 1 and 2.
