Well shoot, now the mastery is that much more worthwhile. The lack of respect is tempting

I finally finished and what I can say is this: if it was to have a review, it could assimilate the level restrictions as in the aria hack, because restrictions of weapons and spells, it is not as fun as it seems.

Nem adianta reclamar e pedir pra por em bnus set, os caras fecham os olhos pras cagadas e afundaram o set do jogo.

It was tough but remastered it, you guys should really rethink how difficult a main set needs to be.

To many of you complaining, mastering a game and finishing a game are 2 very different things, a level cap Aria is barely something worth mentioning, further limitations are a must, maybe not this much but still.

@affftedio They just forget that they are on Retro Achievements and the main goal here is to test your skills, might and sanity...

It's just people complaining because they aren't good enough. It just makes having the 200% that much more satisfying.

quando isso comecou, tinha soh o mega drive, tinham poucos jogos, vi isso crescer e, junto com o site, o ego de muitos developers que se acham deuses, fazendo conquistas idiotas e impossiveis soh pra ficarem se vangloriando nos comentarios...

antes de mais nada, isso aqui era pra ser divertido, uma nova forma de jogar os jogos velhos, nao esse monte de desafio sem sentido, sem graca e repetitivo...

Ola mocada! Gostaria de dizer que essa animosidade nao eh bem recebida por aqui. Cada um ja botou pra fora o que estava preso nesse coracaozinho amargurado e agora bola pra frente.

Dang. Sounds like this game and SMRPG are going to be places of contention for quite a while. Gl admins and achievement revisionists of other games. This gonna happen there too probably.

Honestly, a lot of people who do revisions are used to this kinda thing.

Mastered! Eu estava enganado ao achar que esse set era injusto ou algo do tipo, ele e bem elaborado, na verdade ele so assusta mesmo a quem ler as chevos e nem tenta completa-los hehehe.

okay, what is that last cheevo? like not taking damage while beating chaos on hard not bad enough? why add the gun restriction on top? was whoever made this cheevo drunk off their ass at the time or did this make it in from the bonus set by accident?

With the right strategy, this achievement is completely accessible. The hardest step is the blue dragon. The second boss shape is fully breakable https://youtu.be/HEgq5cS7awY
