    I've played through and beaten the game on all four difficulties. Here's my (very abbreviated) take:
    First, the bad:
    -Cinematic camera angles at the expense of gameplay in many places.
    -Way too easy until you reach Legendary mode.
    -Much too short, though you have to beat all four difficulties to see everything the game has to offer (all four diff. are virtually the same quest, however).
    And now, the good:
    -Boss battles are among the best in any game ever.
    -The soundtrack is unearthly.
    -Fantastic CGI and among the three best-looking PS2 games ever created.
    -Picks up, gameplay-wise, where the NES title left off--this is a good thing, even though the arcade version is still my favorite Rygar of all time.
    If it had been twice as long, a bit more difficult in general, and the combo system been more useful (rather than flashy), it could have been an instant classic.
    As it stands, it's a good, solid game: B-, overall.
