    Amazing game!

    There is nothing like this on the nook. This game is like a console title, not an app. The install process takes ages... dont let it discourage you because this title is worth EVERY penny!

    Awesome! Loved this title on consoles

    Buy this game! I cant wait to see what other games they can port over to the nook; this one was worth every penny. If you are an old school gamer like me this one app has 4 games in one!

    Good game, but frequently crashes.

    This is the only "real" game that can be had for the Nook. I'm surprised at what a good job they did at porting it over. The graphics are nice, the controls work great and the game runs at a decent frame rate. The problem is it frequently crashes. I've only been playing for an hour or so and it has already crashed twice. My Nook is only a year old. Maybe this game was made for the newer edition Nooks. It's too bad, because otherwise it's a great game.

    Wonderful Game

    If you are looking for a game of substance (not just one where you are constantly doing seek and finds) then this is the game for you. It actually requires you to think things through and form a plan. Love it!

    Too many problems

    Cool at first, but constant technical problems make it impossible to play. You'll be in the middle of something, then the game will crash. Wished it worked right! No support for NOOK color. Wasted $.

    Revised review.

    I missed this game so much. I wouldn't miss the sudden crashes at all. Currently stuck in a shop with no menus, afraid I'll have to archive and start over... hope not. :/ I would love to give my 5star review back....

    A happy long time fan!

    Had this for PS2 and was very excited to see it for Nook. Didn't care what it cost. Loved it before and was happy to see it is still the same great game. I can get my snarky RPG in mini. Those who haven't experienced this yet, it isn't like any other hack 'n' slash adventure. There is singing and dancing and a whole lot of bad humor. High replay value as well.

    Amazing story and gameplay

    Just finished the game on Nook Tablet.

    If you see the game crashing at a particular location, try the "verify install" button at the top right corner on the white startup screen.

    Amazing

    This game really is great. Full length, great battles, and hilarious sword and sheild game cliches skewered at every turn. Sample dialogue from the princess to the bard: "Y ou can't fool me, sir. I see what you're thinking. I want you to take that image in your head, picture having it thrice daily, and THEN decide whether I'm worth it to be rescued."
