My favorite game, but at a pricey price
My favorite game of all time is now selling at over $200!?!? What happened... Well if you love the game as much as me grab it while you can I guess. I luckily got it for a good price. The game strongly tells a story of evolution, and instead of using the word god.. they use "Gaia" which means earth. It is quite a genius concept to create a game to get people more accepting of idea of evolution. While the game may have extreme evolutions at times, it is truly pretty accurate in my eyes. Each thing you evolve in the game has certain outcomes, such as turning into a sword fish, shark, or dolphin based on if you upgrade your jaws dorsal fin or snout to attack, from what i remember. Do some research on the game before you buy, and as much as I hate roms and emulators, at this price you mine as well try it on your computer before you buy it. Read full review

Evolution has never been this much fun!
You start life in EVO: The Search for Eden as a fish that eventually evolves into a higher life form. With each evolved lifeform you must pass a series of challenges in order to continue to evolve. At the end of each challenge, you must fight a boss. When I first heard about this game, I dismissed it as being boring. I mean common on-evolution is like watching grass grow. Yawn! However, after watching a friend of mine play it, I instantly changed my mind as I saw that you can customize your creature into almost limitless possibilities. Overall a very solid RPG adventure that should be in everyones Super Nintendo library.

Interesting and unique game.
This game had the potential to be phenomenal, as it explores the possibilities of evolution in a fun and interesting way. Starting out as a fish, the player is able to evolve into unique and different animals throughout many time periods and face all of the creatures of the past along the way. Unfortunately the game mechanics are a bit lacking. Whenever your character is hurt by an enemy you are momentarily stunned and if they are passing by thy might hurt you as much as 3 times before they move on. It isn't a deal-breaker, but it can be annoying. Also the boss-battles are at a difficulty level that forces you to do quite a bit of grinding throughout the game in order to ensure you have stocked up a good bit of EVO points in order to evolve several times each battle replenishing your health. Awesome story, interesting gameplay, few weak points. Not the best SNES title, but one to be cherished, and a definite must for collectors. Read full review

Worth Every Penny!! Great Game!!
I test all my games before listing them and then again after they sell. I usually test a game for about a minute...I tested this game for 5 hours! I played past the saved data already on the cart., which was about 3 levels..if that tells you how long this game is 5 hours for 3 levels!! The entire object of the game is to evolve through time. You go around and eat anything and everything. If a creature is more powerful than you to defeat, you evolve your jaws to bite harder; your dorsal fin to fly, be spiked, etc.; you evolve your skin to be thicker; your arms and legs to jump higher, or stomp harder; you can evolve your horn/horns to stab; and even change your body size!! Everytime you kill something it drops a peice of meat, which you eat and gain health back and get evolution points. New horns may cost you 1000 points or you can go for the cheaper pair for 200 points. There are endless combinations to how you can change your character. At the end of every level and sometimes in between, you have to fight a challenging boss. The game saves on the cartridge, so no codes to type in or lose. You can even save your character as it is at the moment. So if you have a cool monster you like you can save the specific configuration and use that one later if you've already evolved away from it. This game is made by Enix, so you know it's good, and has stellar graphics. It's major rare and look to pay about $30-$45 for a cart. in good condition. I just sold one for $44.99 and it's my only one I had, so you know I am not doing this review just to sell my product. I just know this is a very rare, very cool, fun addictive game. Read full review

Years in the making.
I have been searching for this game for years. I played it when I was young and wanted to relive the experience. After searching in local stores I soon realized how rare it actually was. If only I had bought it when I was younger rather than renting it... But I'm happy to own a copy now, so my friends and family can experience the same joy I have playing it.
