The most geographically expansive and detailed RPG i've ever played!

Summary: Give this game a shot! It is the most geographically expansive and detailed RPG I’ve ever played, for example every house in every town is accessible, complete with rooms, secret areas, and items galore. Every individual room has artistic value and is rarely the same as another room. Add to that the fact that the towns are freaking huge and you can actually get lost easily in this game.
Fun but flawed experience prevents this from being a decent game

Summary: The game uses an atb like system much like legend of heroes a tear of vermilion but with combination attacks. The art, characters and writing was all good from what I played of it. However because the game is very glitchy I can't rec this.
Summary: I can't say enough good things about this awesome RPG!! This is the best the RPG genre has to offer. For people to say this is crap/discrdit this; they aren't gamers at all. This is a perfect combination of Final Fantasy, Breath of Fire, and Chrono Trigger. The characters are intresting and the plot is intreaging. This is a must have for the TRUE gamer and a must for fans of rpgs! I highly recommend this to anyone! It's worth every penny!
This is What the Game Industry Needs and Consumers Don't Seem to Want

Summary: Listen the game is buggy, dated, and flawed but it is a sterling effort from a fledgling developer. That is the reason for the high overall score and the low fun score. Do know that while it is compared to Chrono Trigger, it is not Chrono Trigger. The difference being story setting and battle. The twist on battle is supposed to be that position matters but largely it doesn't. Mostly it just serves to slow down battle if you want to use a regular attack.
Summary: I bought this game specifically because I love old school SNES RPGs. After about 8 hours of having no fun whatsoever I gave up and never looked back. The graphics are adorable 16-bit sprites as promised, no complaints there. The music is completely forgettable. Story is fine, at least the 8 hours I played anyways. The problem is the gameplay. Way too frequent random encounters.
Summary: Black Sigil is a game that pays homage to the 16 bit classic RPGs; engaging gamers in a new world with high drama. Many would compare the style of the game to such legendary games like Chrono Trigger. Its nowhere near the classic that CT was at all; but it still manages to hold its own.
Summary: I was hoping for a Chrono Trigger like game when I bought this in terms of style, game play, story, etc. While it does resemble Chrono Trigger in some ways, it doesn't compare. The story develops very slowly (so slow that I didn't feel like finishing the game), the battle mode is very cumbersome with characters getting in the way of each other all the time, and the graphics started to give me a headache after awhile.
Summary: Well, you can expect no less that pure classic JRPG. Same way, same feeling like it was a while ago, when I played games on my SNES. Of cause, this is modern game, but so classic! Very recommend.
