Terranigma is an action-adventure RPG made by Quintet and published by Enix on the SNES in 1995.


I do not own this game, and I have not beaten it, though I've played through about half the game.


  • Overall:
  • Best Version: SNES


  • The graphics, music, and sound effects are all pretty good.
  • The manual is well-made.


  • There is an obnoxious delay at numerous points in the game dialogue and during cut-scenes.
  • The extra-dimensional box of a menu system, while quite charming, slows down the game a lot.
  • The player's shadow is visible even when he's over a pit, which hurts immersion.
  • I don't like having to press a button to open doors, it would be nicer if the game opened doors when you walked into them.
  • There is an annoying thud each time you hit a solid wall while running.
  • Throughout the game, there were several sections where I got stuck and needed to consult a walkthrough. There were just a lot of things the developers expected the player to try that were not intuitive at all.
  • The lion cub protection mission is really annoying.


  • Nothing.
