Summary: Skies of Arcadia Legends is a port of the very underrated Dreamcast classic Skies of Arcadia. It stars a very upbeat protagonist which is rare in a JRPG. Skies of Arcadia takes place in the sky (if you couldn't guess.) Exploration is heavily favored here because some side quests require you to gather crew members and find discoveries to fill up your pirate's log. This game also features sky battles where you fight other airships and monsters in the sky.
Honestly, a bit overrated. But still good and fun.

Summary: Don't get me wrong this is a fun game but it's similar to a lot of other games of it's type. The story is there is an evil empire that wants to rule the known world and your part of group that undermines it's authority(sound familiar?) and you eventually come across a strange foreigner they've captured who joins you and you've read this story before. The graphics are heavily inspired by anime and the like, and aside from a few expressions their faces don't really move.
Summary: This game is, without a doubt, the second best game for the gamecube (right behind Tales of Symphonia) and up there for one of the greatest of all times. The world you explore has something for everyone, with cultures based on the Japanese and Native Americans. It has such an epic, involving storyline that you'll find yourself playing for 12-14 hours at a time without realizing the time has passed. The only thing that would make it better is voice-overs.
Summary: One of my favorites ever. Fantastic story and longevity. Has all the great aspects of RPG's, plus all the sometimes annoying, sometimes rewarding pokemon-esque monster encounters and zelda-like dungeons and open world exploring. Charming in every way, full of memorable characters and all based on a marvelous concept: air-pirates! After playing through once I was sad to see it go, it is that good of a game.
Skies of Arcadia is a must-play for all self-respecting RPG fans

Summary: RPGS simply do not get any better than Skies of Arcadia on the Dreamcast, and Legends gave the game a minor (though noticeable) facelift, added a couple new sidequests, reduced random enconuters, increased battle experience, and increased the number of discoveries in the game. This game is a completionist's dream game with several different things to collect: CHAMS: Power up a party member's weapon by collecting all of these (usually hiding in weird, out of the way...
