5.0 out of 5 stars Best wizard game ever!! Aug. 12 2012

Yes this game is hard, but once you learn how to play it, it becomes easy and fun. It's like fighting. Everyone thinks there tough until they walk into a martial arts or boxing gym for the first time and try sparring with the veterans. At first it seems impossible and you will get beat down, however once you learn the ropes you learn to hold your own and eventually be the one handing out beatdowns in the ring.

2.0 out of 5 stars IMPOSSIBLE!! July 30 2012

The Immortal is soooo hard.There are traps EVERYWHERE in this game.It could be flying arrows that will instantly kill you...holes that you fall into...giant worms eating you...or other crazy ways to end one of your two continues.Whenever you fight an enemy,it's very hard to control.You'll be very lucky if you survive.Plus as I just mentioned...you only have a couple continues.Thats it.Then it's game over.So why do I give it a two and not a one??? Because,this game is still pretty decent.It's got nice graphics.Especially for an old Genesis game,the storyline seems cool and it's got some gore...but oh my lord.The game is tough.On the upside,there is a password system though,but the hard difficulty is what really kills this game.So buy it....if your up to one HELL of a challenge.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Immortal Sega Genisis Gamer Review Sept. 12 2009

This game will keep you guessing at unlocking puzzles and strategies to escape the dungeons. You wake up inside dungeon tunnels full of underground worms that can come up through the floor and gobble you up if you step in the wrong spot. Use your wits to figure out how to get out. For a Sega Genesis game the graphics aren't half bad and the story line is interesting. If you like RPGs, puzzles, blood, and gore... this game is for you. You must have patience and be able to think outside of the box to solve this game by yourself.

1.0 out of 5 stars Holy Cow Oct. 5 2009

Do you remember playing video games back in the day? Do you remember when there were no checkpoints, saved games, and when the game was set on the "hard" difficulty, it really meant it? Do you remember when video games were actually a challenge? Well, look no further, because The Immortal is possibly one of the hardest games on the planet.

The story is about an old wizard who's looking for his mentor, and gets suckered into a balls-hard dungeoneering quest to do so. Along the way he meets a few people, gets into a few tedious fights and has to solve puzzle after puzzle repeatedly until he gets it right. Basically, the gameplay is fundamentally simple: solve puzzles, fight monsters yadda yadda. You basically are handed every item you need right away when you start, or right before the puzzle begins. Some puzzles are slightly tricky, requiring a bit of trial and error (usually error, more on this in a minute) to get it right, but they typically are nothing to get upset about.

The fighting is less than inspired. I was reminded of Mike Tyson's Super Punchout on the NES. When you get roped into a battle, the screen changes to show you and your foe locked into combat. You can't fight more than one guy at a time (thank heaven for small favors), and the fights are ridiculously easy. All enemies who attack this way favor a left-right combination, which is overcome by dodging to the opposite side. Some enemies can take more hits, some less. You can also get monsters to fight sometimes, making things slightly easier for you, but this is rare. The enemy gets tired, and swings slower and slower, allowing you to get hits in. But, the downside is, the same holds true for you. The fights are more boring than anything else, but most enemies have a pretty sweet death animation, such as head explosions, skin liquifiying, etc, which is the sole reason to get into a fight. Other monsters simply kill you in one hit, adding pressure on you not to die.

In fact, The Immortal is a very bloody game, way ahead of its time in that respect. Aside from killing your enemies, there are a myriad of ways for you to die in this game. The developers have packed more ways to kill you in one tiny corridor than is really necessary. At times you'll be like "Come on! Really?! You just killed me!" and then it's back to the beginning of the level.

The Good: Very little of this game is good. The myriad of fatalities you can perform on your enemies, and the sheer number of deaths in store for you, the hapless consumer, is enough to pique your curiosity to try and see how many you can count. The graphics are fairly good, and theres quite a bit of detail in the death animations.

The Bad: Holy crap where do I begin? The story line is adequate, but hardly interesting. At times I wanted to backtrack to the beginning to see if I could leave, because the whole quest seemed stupid and hardly worth it, but alas. The combat is boring, and the onslaught of "To hell with the player" moments make for a anti-fun experience. You'll hate yourself for wanting to play The Immortal, let alone buy it.

The Skinny: Look, if your a glutton for punishment, or simply want to own this game to brag about it, more power to you. Anyone who finds it fun needs serious psychiatric help.
