Oh, that sucks, it has a really good ending segment imo, and some incredible music later on. How far did you get?
Darn. I came to the very end where I had to fight the last boss: Necron. I remember, when I was a kid, I had a VERY hard time kicking his ass, because he would always one-shot kill my party. I know I was trying to beat him for days, weeks even... but ultimately I just surrendered.
Then, a year or two ago, 15 years after last playing it, my friend gave it a try and said he didn't even break a sweat. Yes, Necron wasn't really 'easy' in the classical sense, but it was even easier than some of the other bosses.
I was like - "HOW?". But then I remember we were 11 year-old kids back then, and probably didn't know some good RPG gameplay tactics that were needed to beat him. I didn't even know what those abilities were for, and how you used them. Haha... I discovered too late.
