This has got to be the greatest arcade game that ever
was. Well, at least I think so. What's especially nice about it is that
I've played it enough to be able to beat it on one quarter. What's even
better is that it takes an hour and a half to beat the game so this has
definitely got to be by far the most efficient game to play. Besides
that, it's still great fun even though the number of times I've played it
are probably already in triple digits.
The game is primarily a typical side scroller of the Final Fight genre,
but using various items, several choices for weapons, casting a slew
of slick spells, decision making, impressive and sometimes even awesome
bosses, great artwork, and the choice of several unique, well-designed
characters to choose from keeps the game far ahead of other such games
as well as all other games in my opinion.
It's a shame that the game is somewhat old now and not many arcades
have it anymore, if ever. Hell, even the IDIOTS at
the UCLA arcade took it out. Even the dorm arcade took it out! Now what
am I supposed to do? I used to go play virtually any time that I had
at least an hour and a half free, and now I'll probably never play it
at all. NO!!! Well, I guess the arcades weren't too
happy that I was pretty much the only one playing, compounded by the
fact that I would rarely spend more than 25 cents per game.
Rejoice! For so long, I had to live an empty life with no D&D: SOM.
Finally however, they have been able to emulate the game for the PC.

Ah, it's been so fun to play through the game with each of the characters and
try a variety of different paths. Hope you guys have a gamepad and a lot of fun!
