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.

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.

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.

GAMEPLAY: 9/10
Very interesting.

Product arrived in working order (save battery intact, which is kind of a minor miracle given how old the game is now). Physical condition of product just as described by seller; very satisfied with this purchase (and particularly satisfied with the ability to play a game that I loved in high school twenty years later).

As for the game itself: ActRaiser was one of Enix's quirkier products to reach US shores during the SNES years. It combines the "god game" genre (literally, in terms of the over-world portion of the game, and figuratively relative to the player character) with a side-scrolling hack-n-slash action game featuring RPG-lite elements.

It's worth noting that while ActRaiser is a singular title (in that I've not seen anything that replicates its formula exactly in the US market), and well worth playing, the action suffers from some of the design flaws that were common at the time of the game's release. Jumps can be touchy (the player character has the ability to stop on a dime in mid-air, which can be both incredibly useful, and incredibly irritating when it comes to twitch-jumps), and hit detection for some of the smaller enemy types is a bit sketchy. Once you get past that, though, ActRaiser stands as one of the gems of the 16-bit era; well worth a look!

By A Customer on June 6, 2004
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.

I purchased Actraiser 2 online because it was less money and I wanted to see how the game play was. I really liked the second one so I purchased the first. The first is great, the has some creative game play for its time. Would suggest buying this game.

A very interesting mix of simulation as you build your town, and side scrolling as you clear the area. You are the Master (aka God) so you have cosmic powers that are fun to unleash on the populace. Very fun game. Too bad they never made a real sequel to it. The first was Soulblazer, which is admittedly very good. But then the terrible Actraiser 2 came out and completely sucks. I hate dissing a side scroller cause I love them but it was horrendous. Stick with this gem instead. It is well worth adding to your SNES collection!
