  • 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 .  .  . )

Classic RPG at its best

Mangos_Gamehut, Amazon

  • 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.

Welcome to Arcadia

  • 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 .
  • Cons: Dated visuals

Good, but becoming dated

C. O'Connor, Amazon
9 December 2004
  • Summary: Let me open by saying that this, is one of the best RPGs to date on the cube, and seeing as it was originally a dreamcast game, its rather amazing. The game opens with you, Vyse, an air-pirate who rescues a girl named Fina from the hands of the evil Valuan empire. The game then fills you in.

Skies of Arcadia Legends

20 August 2004
  • Excerpt: Back in the day on the 1st 128bit console, Sega Dreamcast had a game called Skies of Arcadia. It lacked good RPGs at the time so this game was a very welcome addition to any RPG fan that owned a Dreamcast. At the time the graphics were seen as fantastic, the sound superb and the gameplay... wow...
  • Pros: RPG gamer's will enjoy this game alot .  Easy to get hooked, great value for money !
  • Cons: New extras may not be enough for previous players of original .  Same graphics and audio .
