5.0 out of 5 stars Flying High, 25 July 2005
This review is from: Skies of Arcadia Legends (Video Game)
Skies of Arcadia Legends may be a port of a fairly old Dreamcast game but it still remains one of the most original and Brilliant RPG's available.
You play a young blue rogue(Pirate) named Vyse who steals from the rich and er... well keeps the money, but who is mostly a ridiculously honest and just guy. Most Of The characters in this game are likeable and the story is good if not slightly predictable. The normal battling in this game does little to reinvent the RPG genre, but the battles in which you fight ship to ship are pretty awesome. But perhaps the best aspect of the game is the way in which it creates a believable world in which you can explore to great extent. For example Final fantasy 7 is a brilliant game but the exploration of the world map seems a bit dull and repetetive sometimes. Whereas in Skies, you can explore the world in a way you usually do in adventure games like Zelda.
Graphics: 7/10 While the graphics in this game are technically poor, the style of them is quite likeable and creates a cool cartoony effect.
Sound: 9.5/10 While the voiceovers are pretty poor, once the music grows on you it is nothing short of breathtaking.
Gameplay: 9.5/10 A good solid battle system and a great game out of battle make Skies Of Arcadia's Gameplay way ahead of most RPG's out there.
Lifespan: 9/10 It'll take you a good 50 hours to complete the main quest and there's many side quests to keep you playing after that.
Good: Cool battles, great music, brilliant story and an altogether involving experiance.
Bad: Not much new for an RPG, slightly predictable, technically inferior to alot of games out today.
Overall 9.5/10 Skies Of Arcadia Legends is one of the amazing RPG's ever made and while it may not be as highly recomended as Final Fantasy or Chrono Trigger it is a deeply rewarding experiance and a game any proper RPG fan should own.
