The Purple Parade is marching in full stride to the beat of that 'other' drum we all hear, but generally ignore. ;)

Beyond the Beyond

I enjoyed Beyond the Beyond for the PS1, solid Roleplaying if you ask me.  I remember timing certain button presses just before attacking gave you increased damage, I liked this feature.  


I remember the game.  I liked it at first, but eventually got very frustated with it.  It's just left me with a bad overall impression.  I was having a lot of fun with it up until that point.  I don't remember having any particular trouble with the first dungeon though, the real difficulties came later on. =/

The whole 'curse' thing got rather annoying, from my memory, you have to deal with that for quite a while.  

I'm not sure if I just went to the wrong dungeon or not, but the random encounters just got brutal.  I remember getting into an encounter with some wizards or something that repeatedly cast fire spells on my whole group, doing some massive damage to everyone.  This, after being a few floors in already.  It just got brutal, and I didn't have the patience to level to get through the place, and eventually it had to get returned.  I rented it again some other time, and didn't really get any further.  

A hard game is fine, but that was getting to the extreme.  Going through very very difficult dungeons, with your strongest party member permanently cursed for the time being.  

It's been a number of years since I last tried to play the game at all, so I don't really remember too much else about it.
