Bought Klonoa last night. Beat it in 4 hours, and only died a couple of times on like two bosses. Sure, it’s a great game, while it lasts, but it makes me wonder if we should attach such reverence to a game that is not only short, but super easy. I think it’s due to the rarity of the PS1 original that it’s regarded so highly. Also I skipped all the cutscenes because the story was so simplistic I got the gist of it within the first few seconds of each scene, but it dragged forever. Man, look at those word balloons crawl by.

 

Luckily, it’s a "budget" release, so at least it’s only 8 dollars per hour? That still… Doesn’t seem great.
