Product Description

ActRaiser combines side-scrolling action with world-building strategy set within a fantasy realm. As a deity called The Master, your task is to overthrow evil forces by reclaiming your land and amassing a population of followers. Action sequences allow you to possess a warrior statue, using its sword and magical attacks to destroy evil in six lands, while the simulation mode consists of clearing out deserts or swamps, constructing cities, and keeping their populations safe. While neither mode is the height of its respective genre, the unique combination and a beautifully orchestrated soundtrack result in an engrossing and enjoyable adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Two Worlds November 30, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love this game so much, and have for years. It has two modes which are just so awesome. First, you have the side-scroller/action stages. These are awesome and a good deal of them require a decent amount of skills. Then there is the city-building/sim mode. It's so fun to play, but I've been told the sim part is boring to watch.

However, you're out on a mission to save the people and your world from demons and evil Gods. You encounter all kinds of neat scenarios in the world you preside over. People turn their backs because the other gods promise happiness, favored citizens are up for sacrifice, plauges, and family feuds.

This is one of the best and most original games I've ever played.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like Actraiser, a lot. June 6, 2004
By A Customer
I've always thought Actraiser was one of the better games released on the SNES. The building portion of the game is a lot like SimCity (if I remember correctly), which I always enjoyed so if you don't like that you might not like this game. The action part was kind of like Castlevania. First you do an action level, then you build, then boss-action, then action, then build, etc. Once you beat it the first time you can play just the action levels again. I thought it was pretty impressive graphically and it had a pretty good soundtrack (especially the second level, Blood Lake or something).
I always felt this was a very solid game, and if I weren't so poor I'd probably buy a copy of it to play again.

5.0 out of 5 stars An epic mixture of two interesting concepts! January 7, 2014
I have to be man enough to admit that, yes, I missed out on a LOT of good Super Nintendo games when I was a kid, but to my defense, I had fantastic titles like "Illusion of Gaia" and "Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past" to keep me occupied. But I can't believe--with any ounce in my mind--that I missed out on this! Seeing as I just got the game for Christmas of 2013, less than a month ago, and finished the game completely within one week, I think it's only fair to give my two cents worth here in the form of a review! Let's get started, shall we?

STORY: 10/10
Epic. Every fiber of my being believes that Soul Blazer and Terranigma got the basis of their plots from this bad boy. You are the Master (otherwise known as God, but they changed a few names because of religious conflicts over here in NA) and you have just reawakened from an ancient war with Tanzra (otherwise known as Satan, but again, religious conflicts), the lord of darkness. After a long and arduous struggle, neither force was victorious, but Tanzra summoned forth mighty demons to imprison the souls of the people of the world. As such, it is your duty as lord and savior to restore the world to its former glory, resurrecting the people of your world and developing every major location across the globe through civilization. Consider this game's story a sort of post-apocalyptic masterpiece, more so than any game of its kind. I was hooked from start to finish, and found myself greatly intrigued by the morals and beliefs held towards the end of the adventure. Every game has a story to tell, and this one told it exquisitely.

Very interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Game, Pleasantly Surprised May 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After watching videos on some of the best SNES games not too many people have played, I came across Act Raiser. Not very many games had this level of originality and provided the two different gameplay styles in one game on the SNES.

There is the standard side scrolling areas of the game which is definitely fun. There are magic spells, tons of different enemies, some challenging bosses and definite replay value. The Death Heim is definitely challenging Because yiubhave to fight 7 bosses in a row. This is especially if all you did was use magic spells on the bosses.

Next is the sim building portion of the game. Seems kind of boring at first but definitely gets addicting. I couldn't wait to finish building my cities and shoot little demons with my bow.

My only few complaints are that you have two sword attacks, a standing slash and a crouching slash. Also, some of the bosses are way too easy to beat if you just decide to use your spells. I'd suggest not using your spells very much if you want to enjoy the game more.

Overall, this game is very good. I enjoyed it more that I thought I would. I high recommend it and is definitely worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old school classic April 6, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
One of the cool things about this game is that you have both action/side-scrolling with killing monsters with your sword, and a Sim City-esque world-building game (six cities total, with two action levels for both) It might not be for everyone, but I have played it several times through, and have genuinely enjoyed it. It also helps to maximize your potential to rack up points in the action parts (not too much to ask for) for a total of at least 25,000 points between the two levels for any one city. It's not overly complicated, and I do wish there had been more cities and stuff, but for a SNES game, this was pretty enjoyable. It's worth a try if you like Sim-style games with action.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stil a great game October 5, 2010
By Lucanus
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I grew up playing Act Raiser and loved it as a child. I recently downloaded the title on my Wii via the virtual console. The game still holds it own even to this day. What separates this game for most is the mix between 'sim city' and '2D action'. The game features different areas that first require a 2D action level to be completed. Upon completion a city needs to be built. As the city grows new abilities are discovered and new ares can be reached. The new areas feature more 2D action followed by more city building. Each area has a unique landscape and basic story. Overall the game is just unique and well balanced. Excellent title.
