    Thanks bunches! I love the Japanese artwork for this game.

    I think your review was a little harsh though; this is easily in the top three best puzzle games on the system, if you ask me...

    Anyway, thanks again.

    I feel that Vikings has something missing... something that graphically connects everything together... it is lacking that extra identity spark that could have turned it into an incredible looking game. The gameplay is awesome and fun but, again, I wasn't really impressed by the graphics and level themes... I didn't play Vikings back in the days though, maybe this is why I looked at it from a different perspective. You know what ? I'll give the game another go and see what it has in store that I overlooked
    By the way, do not hesitate to send me a short "Point of View" for this game if you want. I'd be delighted to add it to the page - the more feedback, the better !

    I didn't play it as a kid either, and I agree that the graphics and enemy designs are nothing special, but the cleverness of the premise and the quality of the level design (especially in the last two or three worlds) more than make up for that, I feel.

    Sorry for the delay, I was away for a week and didn't have access to the web...

    Thanks Nintega Grafx-16, I don't often receive feedback about the site, so I really appreciate yours, yo !!

    I sadly don't have Hitler No Fukkatsu... I think the game is way too pricey for my wallet, but who knows, I may find a cheap copy one day, fingers crossed

    W00T, another game I own (but without manual). Thanks.

    And I'm very much inclined to agree with your review this time. I actually bought this game strictly because I like its Japaneseyness and it has amazing backgrounds and enemy designs, but yeah, gameplay-wise, it is mediocre at best. This is kind of sad, because a medieval Japanese Castlevania with spears could have been awesome, and this game has the right idea as to the range of motion Jinrai/Imoto has, but it just doesn't control fluidly enough to be much fun.

    One little thing: It should be "Daikisshō" (pronounced like die-quiche-show), and I also would suggest "Ashura". Either Ashura or Asyura is technically okay, and Japanese people might actually get confused and combine the two, but it's still weird, and Ashura matches the Hepburn romanization you use everywhere else except in the word "Musya" (it's "Musha" in Hepburn, but the package itself uses Kunrei romanization for that, so yeah, it can't be helped :P ).
