I can't describe to you the feeling of "beating" that game only to get to the end and have it pull that crap. Think you beat it and then it laughs at you and makes you have to start over with more, and seemingly faster, monsters.Super Ghouls and Ghost- you battle your way all the way through this with NO saves then on the final boss, you find out you have to battle your way all the way through the game again with no saves! I can't think of to many people now a days that has this kind of time to devote to 1 playing of a game.
I've only ever beaten that game, completely, once. I don't think I could ever do it again, at least not without savestates or something.
