The controls and isometric perspective nearly bring down what could be a great game, but Landstalker is still an adventure worthy of your attention.
* Charming visuals, music, and dialog
* Very meaty quest with lots of areas to explore and treasure chests
* Enjoyable, though simple, combat and puzzles.
* Isometric view is made problematic by sticky directional controls
* Platform jumping, already frustrating in the isometric perspective,
is made worse by a lack of shadows.
