Pros
+Original Storyline not seen in many jRPGs back then nor this day (also the main reason why it never released in the US :P) - deep storyline themes not seen in games
+Real life characters make appearances/mention in the game's storyline (another unique aspect not seen in many jRPGs)
+One of the first early action RPGs that paved way for future jRPG action games like Kingdom Hearts.
+Unique gameplay elements such as the menu system being a actual in game playing aspect rather than being a pure menu.
+Incredible soundtrack
+Gameplay has elements similar to games like The Legend of Zelda where players will be item dependent in order to get to a certain sections of the game/dungeons (not a aspect that was common in action RPGs).
+Gameplay has elements to a platformer as well as "Jumping" is a major gameplay aspect in the game for both puzzles and for battles - another aspect not seen in jRPGs.
+Most free style gameplay seen in a action RPG until Kingdom Hearts came out
+Town building gameplay aspect is a interesting new feature at its time - rebuild/build up pre-existing towns unlocking more features and opportunities such as item shops, etc (not mandatory - its optional and a nice feature/affects almost all of the towns in the game - up to 3 upgrades each)

Cons
-Not much in replay value/no post game content

----------------
Comparison's sake to other games in the series.

Terranigma is considered a part of soul blazer. If you would be comparing it to other in the series it would be soul blazer and illusion of gaia.

I know except I only compare them if I finished and rated them as well which I havent yet.

The same with my God of War and Assassin's Creed reviews which I only list the first two games cause those are the only ones I finished :o.

I've only gotten around to playing the beginning of this game, but the whole reason I even tried playing it was because I heard this song and was blown away by it.
