EMERALD DRAGON (NEC / GLODIA / MEDIA WORKS)

SUPER CD-ROM 2 (JAPANESE VERSION)   

Since YS Book I&II release, in 1990, no-one could really expect that another PC-ENGINE RPG could ever beat it. Hudson Soft had really achieved a major goal with its YS conversion to CD-ROM. Many gorgeous titles were released, like the XAK series and the outstanding YS IV - The Dawn of YS...they come really closer to YS, but still a little behind.

Then came Emerald Dragon. Created by a tiny japanese softhouse, Glodia. Emerald Dragon had already been released on MSX2, PC-98 and X68000. It was so well succeeded that NEC decided to spent some money on an Emerald Dragon version for SUPER CD-ROM. Fans expected it would probably be an awesome game, but one could hardly imagine that Emerald Dragon would become the best RPG ever released on PC-ENGINE.

 
Graphics during the game itself and on animated cinemas are truly state-of-the-art, similar to many PSX and SNES games released many years after. Its musics are simply outstanding! They fit perfectly on each sequence, wonderfully orchestrated and with brilliant melodies and harmonies.

But the main attractive on Emerald Dragon is, undoubtely, its story. Talking about a massive dragons genocide on its main land, a touching friendship between a young dragon who survived that genocide and a little shipwrecked girl, and this girl's return to her own land, Emerald Dragon's plot really touches deep in the heart. It also shows that, sometimes, the world of games can amaze us with impecable masterpieces, that are much more than simple fun.

  

Emerald Dragon is just perfect! The best RPG ever released for PC-ENGINE, and one of best games of all-time!
