This game brought me back to the frustrating and infuriating days of my youth when I used to play the likes of Ghosts N Goblins and Ninja Gaiden. I was consistently raging and slamming my controller against the floor but the game still managed to make me play the to the very end. When all is said and done, the satisfaction of beating such a hard game made it worth it and I feel like I overcame a huge obstacle. I must say as an old school gamer, this is what a great game is all about.
