hype

For people who grew up playing this game, it takes everything you loved about it and makes it challenging for an adult who still games in the modern era. You will find yourself thinking of the characters in ways you never did before, coming up with strategies you never thought you would think of coming up before, freaking out over dying like you never did before, and eating a lot of chocolate.

Not fully complete yet from a features perspective (it's only gonna get better?) but I give this one my full recommendation.

PS. find two buddies to play it with and apply the 3-player patch. Trust me now, thank me later.

PPS. Play on hard mode. No balls.

Been following this mod back on Insane difficulty, and man what a beautiful work Praetarus did. Definitely a wonderful mod, adds a thrill to the otherwise bland battles and keeps you in the edge, and forces you to plan ahead and create new strategies while giving you the options to do so. One of my favorite mods, everyone that had played the original Seiken Densetsu should play this one.
