    I come from 15 years into the future to say that because I'm not really into turn-based J-RPGs, I won't adress the controversy this game caused.

    Same as PGA Golf Tour, with its IBM PC feel, precise play and cacophonous music (nice sound effects, though. It's a shame that intrusive music breaks this game's overall peaceful atmosphere), but now...
