|I don't really need an armour.
|Shadow Of Power
Such unintentional gems as "I need a huge, enormous sword", and "I'm not going out there without an armour!" are scattered throughout the game. Coupled with the actors accent, it's quite memorable. There are also intentional gems, such as "hey you pussy, punch me harder!", which are also memorable.
Shadow of Power has decent graphics, but those graphics just scream "Zelda Clone". The character graphics are as original as graphics get, but many of the enemies look like reworkings of Zelda beasts, and a lot of the background graphics are obviously ripped from other games -- Zelda and Doom were quite prominent.
The sound is good, with a few exceptions
where the sound is just a bit too cartoony for my tastes. As I mentioned,
the voices are just hilarious, and are all incredibly clear.
Gameplay is pretty straightforeward, pitting you against various different monsters, using a decent aresenal of spells. It would get old pretty quickly if the game didn't have some really difficult portions, but they are included in force. It's not that any given portions are mind-numbingly difficult, but supplies are almost always in short supply. Money doesn't flow nearly as freely as in other RPGs, so one must generally rely on health and magic the monsters sometimes drop when killed. My hard drive was accidently reformatted before I was able to reach the final boss, but I was at his castle, and it was a lot of fun getting there.

|It's very much like Legend of Zelda. While there are some differences, and the interface overall seems nicer to use, it is
