So, Rygar has decent control and some pretty interesting music, but that could be said for the majority of games in the NES library and I find this game to be much less than average when compared to other similar NES games. With all of the things this game got wrong I would place the early difficulty coupled alongside the no continues bullshit as the one thing that really keep this game from being mediocre at best and place it in the “do not play” pile. It's sad too, because with a few modifications this game could have really been something special within the NES library, but instead it takes it's rightful place in the annals for video game barf-fests. C'est La Vie.
Overall - 3.5
