Old-school RPG with a modern look

This bizarrely titled and rather obscure game was originally released for the Sega Genesis and didn't really make much of a mainstream impact at the time. What's even stranger is that the game was picked up for this re-release but if you missed out on it, to be honest you're not missing all that much unless you are a diehard JRPG fan. The plot here is a little different from the usual Japanese RPGs like Phantasy Star and revolves around a young botanist's quest to save his father who is dying from a mysterious illness. What follows is a fairly typical example of the genre, with the player exploring a vast world full of danger and quests, and with the combat playing out in turn-based fashion. The gameplay in this enhanced version is identical to the original, so the real differences are in the visuals, with all new HD assets to give the game a more modern look. The story however has seen some updates, with expanded quests and locations, as well as some new mini-games and battle features. If you are hankering after a bit of old-school RPG fun, then Pier Solar is a pretty solid, if unoriginal, take on the genre. The story is generally compelling, with some nice quirky characters and a few twists and turns, and should keep you playing to the end. The gameplay is familiar but fairly enjoyable, with a nice mix of exploration and combat and again proves fairly satisfying. The visuals are quite lush, feeling true to the original but with a lovely modern sheen to them, and do justice that 16-bit look. Overall, this is a fun retro romp that is let down by too many random and tedious fights. Still worth a look though.
