The Completionist Edit

Jirard reviewed ActRaiser for the fifty-eighth episode of The Completionist.

Both Jirard and Greg are a bit confused by the duality of the gameplay, incorporating platforming elements and simulator element. Jirard has a rant about the sound the text makes during the game. He does appreciate the other music, but considers it repetitive.

Jirard praises the hack and slash portion of the game, but admits the simulation part wouldn't appeal to everyone. Personally he enjoys this portion as well, but it's hit and miss. As a whole, he finds the game to fun and challenging.

In the ending stinger, Jirard receives a package from "Patrick H" that contains Sneak King, foreshadowing the next episode.
