"Alex! Oh, Alex!"

I'm not going to lie, most of this review is based on the absolutely groundbreaking power of the Sega CD system to deliver a fantastic soundtrack. The graphics are fine, the game play is fine, it's a bit silly, which is good, but the sounds are what set it apart. This is also one of my earliest memory of significant anime-style cutscenes and the CD-quality dialogue laid over them are just stellar (pun intended). Sure, there's the slow load times of the Sega CD to deal with, but listening to this game is a joy. It's actually one of the few game soundtracks I'd listen to on its own. It's probably the best Sega CD game I owned and played!
