5.0 out of 5 stars Nintendo makes a new classic November 14, 2001
You begin as a boy, in a small town wanting to simply travel the world out of simple curiosity. You then travel the world (eventually finding two other souls to join you), pretty much going to the 7 wonders of the world, and beating monsters, solving puzzles and riddles with new skills you learn in your journey. Its a very good game for your brain. This game also spares you travel time of having to travel from point A to point B, by just having a map displaying where the heroes are going. No travel time is to make up for the fact that it is not always obvious what to do, so it may take you days to figure out simple puzzles. This an incredible game for learning purposes, as well as its fun gameplay much like the Zelda games (weapon, special item, run and map buttons). With that being said, the buttons are configured nothing like Zelda! It has a very disappointing configuration, but that's why it has a mode where you can configure your own buttons!

5.0 out of 5 stars gooses review July 6, 2005
By goose
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This was definately my favorite super nintendo game. I only had about 2 dozen games for this system but I havent played it in several years and I haven't forgoten how much I liked it. This game looks a lot richer than most games for the snes and has a crisp sound as well. Playing this game for me was like reading a good book. I really didn't like the game until I had beat the first continent. You cant judge it by its cover either. I was looking for a game that was similar to this but there really arent any. The people who made this are the same people making final fantasy games today for the company square enix. The game I believe is closest to this would have to be the first final fantasy just with more elements from final fantasy adventure which has been remade as the sword of mana. If your collecting games for the snes this would make a good museume type trophy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Roleplay similar to Final Fantasy but without the frills. November 14, 1999
By A Customer
This isnt an easy game but its not complex like some other RP's. The length of play on this game is good and the storyline is ok (I think they could have fleshed out the characters a little) but it has nowhere near the depth as Secret of Mana. The "movies" in between the action sequences are similar to the ones in the Final fantasy snes games and the graphics are better but in my opinion there are too many of them. Overall I like Illusion of Gaia and I still go back to it when im sick of gaining levels in FF or Mana. It really depends on weather you are looking for storyline or heavy action.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great game with One, and only one, major flaw. August 1, 2001
By Ben
I'm not sure where to begin with this game... Well, first of all, the story is highly original and quite interesting. I like the fact that the game is based on a future Earth, with real places from history as its dungeons. Wonderful idea. The graphics are pretty standard SNES fare, with a slight combination of Zelda and Chrono Trigger. Some of the music is excellent and very moving too. I especially like the little world map tune, the mysterious flute tune that plays at the Inca ruins, and, most of all, that song that plays when you save the game and choose to quit for now (I wish I knew the names of these songs, they're great).
The gameplay is fun, and the places you visit are quite exotic, from the floating city, to the Nazca plain, to the Great Wall of China. This RPG spans the ancient world. Like Zelda, the bosses are huge and challenging, and they require strategy to defeat.
So, why not all 5 stars? Well, there's the story... while most of the story is wonderful, there is just one critical part of it that seems to have been completely uninspired... the Ending. I won't spoil it, but I will say that I found the ending very disappointing and even a little depressing. I found myself saying, "What? That's it?" It seems as if they were in a rush to just finish the game and as a result produced a very shabby end to an otherwise awesome game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic rpg that is pure pleasure. January 25, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had so much fun playing this game. I played this game not to long after I had played Secret of Evermore. I was so glad to have found yet another super fun rpg.
I remember liking the story line; finding out what happened to the lost expedition and saving the world from the comet. The game has different and distinct looks in the world from all types of towns and villages, to a castle, along with different terrains. I liked gathering the information to advance in the game it wasn't so hard that you would get frustrated too much, like in Chrono Trigger I had to make lots of notes. Taking a breath and thinking about something would get you past the issue. For that matter, I do not remember the puzzles being too hard or leveling up being difficult. I do not remember much backtracking like in some games. If you have ever played Secret of Evermore, Final Fantasy III or Secret of Mana this game is along those lines. I don't think it is as large as the previously named games, but it is long enough to put a smile on your face. I don't remember the exact hours I played this game, but I know it was over 40. I am glad I found and played this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Illusion of Gaia September 7, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember I had this game for years before I could actually play it...The first time I got past the first "boss," the game was sold to someone, and I couldn't finish it. I got this game from a game crazy just about a year ago. I definately love those kind of games that you can just play for hours, and not worry about anything else. This game is one of those games...When I finished it, it was after an eight hour time period, and that was just for that one day. People that go on diets don't know how easy it is. Playing this game, I did nothing but play for hours at a time...I didn't eat for almost the entire time. I enjoyed almost all of the zelda games that I have played in the past, and yet this one seemed to be more fun for me. I think this game was a little bit more challenging...It has a fresh plot and storyline, whereas Zelda is almost always the same. The music is great, and was stuck in my head for days after finishing the game. Will, the person that you control for most of the game, has terrific abilities, and learns new ones throughout the game. This is most likely one of my favorite NES games that I have played yet!
