Top Underrated RPG’s #01: Alundra

These are not meant to be reviews but more of a quick notification and a heads up to go out and give them a shot! These RPG’s never get the attention they so rightly deserve!

First up on our list is:

936full-alundra-cover

This game was fantastic! I bought this on impulse after saving my pocket money back when Playstation 1 was in full swing…while easily compared to Zelda this game still had it’s own vibe.  Also people forgot that it was a spiritual successor to Landstalker on the Genesis, This game while underrated still won great praise for its bizarre story and smooth game mechanics. The game’s protagonist is a guy named Alundra, who learns that he has the power to enter people’s dreams. He is shipwrecked near the village of Inoa and proceeds to try to help the locals, who have been suffering from a terrible curse. The narrative becomes gradually darker and more twisted as the game progresses.

You don’t mess with Alundra

Be sure to pick up this title via PSN network or in a bargain bin somewhere. So in the words of Grace Jones in Conan the Destroyer “GRRRRAB HIM! AND TAKE HIM!”

I’ll let the video below do the rest of the talking!

    This game was serious. Didn’t get nowhere near the attention it deserved. I am actually in the mood for playing it again.
