Great update to a great game
24 April 2009
Summary: The original Skies of Arcadia for Dreamcast was a good game, provided you had the patience to endure a random encounter every few steps. This aspect of the game which may have frustrated many into quitting the game has been removed from the Gamecube port, as well as new bounty missions.
Summary: I picked up this game because I remembered it being pretty fun. It's a little kid rpg meaning it's not to hard and the story's not to deep. The graphics are bright and and have a cartoonish charm.
Summary: With a completely original storyline and turn-based combat, 'Skies' is a beautiful, fantastical RPG that fans of the genre will find easy to pick up. The storyline does not stagnate, and pulls apart from others of its kind, by setting the tale in a time of floating islands and Sky Pirates.
Summary: Skies Of Arcadia is an okay game, but not as good as Final Fantasy VII. The graphics on SOA are alright, but the sound could use a little of an improvement. The battle system is great, but it gets quite annoying after a while.
Summary: Great storyline, awesome ship battles, beautiful locals, tons of stuff to look for. This game is just great. With... one little snag. The random battles. Ugh, how I've felt like throwing my controller while looking for all the discoveries just because of all the random battles that kept getting in...
Excerpt: Every so often a game comes along that simply blows you away. One that once you start playing it absorbs your very being and won't let you go until it leaves you shedding a quiet tear staring at the end credits many hours of playing later.
Pros: Fantastic soundtrack at times, hugely engrossing,an unforgettable experience
Cons: Possibly too many random encounters, no sequel (yet . . . )
Excerpt: Vyce, a young sky pirate, encounters a strange girl being kidnapped by the evil Valuan Empire. Rescuing her he sets off on a quest to get his own ship, save the world, build a pirate base and hopefully get some plunder along the way.
Pros: Great story gripping action, unique air combat .
Summary: This is a classic RPG no fuss, no mess. The story and general feel of the game is well rounded and complete, the game its self is huuuuuge. over 50 hours if you try and find every little secret, crew member and discovery.
Excerpt: Skies of Arcadia Legends is a turn based RPG following the adventures of the pirate Vyse and his friends as they fight to save the world from the threat of the Armada. They, along with other colourful characters they meet on the way want to fight for a free world and a safe world.
Pros: Huge amounts of extra things to do and a brilliant storyline
Cons: sailing round can take a very long time at first
Excerpt: I'm always a bit reserved when going into RPGs. They require a healthy time investment, contain laborious travelling and the fight systems are hardly the most enticing prospects. I walked into the world of Arcadia, and you know what, I never looked back.
Pros: Good story, exciting villages, great dundeons .
