Editors' Review

+
With its Legend of Zelda-style graphics and gameplay, this retro role player conjures nostalgic memories of game systems past. You play a young adventurer who leaves home to stop the fulfillment of an evil prophecy. You explore the world around you, getting advice from different characters and collecting various artifacts. The game abounds with opportunities and choices. You can build a party of up to four characters, choose from a laundry list of magic spells, even get married. We admit, chunky 2D graphics and ultrabasic character interaction don't do it for us like they used to. But we found the game's twee period music a guilty pleasure that reminded us of our last visit to Ye Olde Renaissance Faire. And considering the game's free, you get a heck of a lot of adventuring for your money. If you're fond of console role-playing games, chances are you'll have a good time with Ahriman's Prophecy.

"Could Be So Much Better..But Isn't."

September 03, 2013  |  By McClushie

 |  Version: Ahriman's Prophecy 2.1

Pros

*Graphics
*Fun quests
*Sweet characters
*Music

Cons

*Buggy
*Bad Gaming-system
*Bad grammar and spelling
*Sound effects could be annoying and repetitive (Bden,anyone)?
*Weird controls

Summary

Even though, this game was overall entertaining for the most part, the bad outweighed the good. This is how...

The thing that really makes this game not as great as it could be has to be the fighting system. It does have it's pros, but outside of that just..f**king terrible! So, good things first: I do like how the fighting system is different from most RPGs and it's a lot more funner IMO, but then again, I don't like the fighting system in most RPGs, so I am maybe bias and probably am. And that'll probably be the only good thing about it I have to say. xD

Outside of that fact, it's way too f**king hard, and very unnecessarily so. Why do enemies get to be far-away from you and still attack? I've played many awful games, I'm sad to say, but even within them they didn't have such an unfair fighting system as this one does! ***

Also, it's get way too difficult waay too early! Frustratingly, you have to fight a lot of enemies for a way too long amount of time until you get to a good enough level to get on the different areas of the game, hence to further the game. You have to have a LOT of patience for this. I didn't, therefore ending in me not playing
anymore.

Now, everything else though, not perfect is tolerable. If it wasn't for such an incredibly hard fighting system, I honestly think this game would be the bomb. Point blank. Instead, it become just a really un-playable game, unless you have a massive amount of patience, which I don't think most people have, including me. You've been warned! xD

"Utterly absorbing"

August 13, 2008  |  By Xumca

 |  Version: Ahriman's Prophecy 2.1

Pros

- The quasi-medieval music is EXCELLENT -- the kind of melodies that get stuck in your head, and you don't mind.

- This is probably a characteristic of a lot of RPGs, but as someone used to adventures with minimal fighting, I do like how you don't have to have the perfect item to fight an enemy -- you just need to train up to the right class to defeat them.

- The map is ENORMOUS. You'll spend plenty of time wandering around and finding completely new areas.

- Overall, I think it's the perfect mix between adventure and battles -- there's a definite plotline running through the middle that is important for triggering some events, but other than that the side quests are nonlinear. And there are different paths to take, so there's definite replay value. I'm already itching to try some other scenarios.

- The fighting is challenging (especially in new areas or when the creature's guarding something good), but not too hard if you're careful to prepare for it first. Just remember to face the thing you're fighting!

- A word on graphics. When I downloaded this game, I was really looking for a 3D adventure game with eye-candy scenery. I just grabbed this one on a lark because the gameplay sounded interesting and I have hard drive space to spare. I dabbled into it a little, just to see what it was, then couldn't put it down. After you've gotten into the story, you literally won't even notice the graphics. This game is beautiful.

Cons

- Occasional bug, doesn't interfere with the gameplay but can sometimes raise an eyebrow: for instance, you might be talking to someone and have a character that's not currently in your party say something.

- It's frustrating to be attacked by a purple mouse.
