Excerpt: In the world of Arcadia, people live on floating islands and travel the world via airship. Air pirates and the Valuan Empire rule the skies, with Vyse and Aika of the Blue Rogues attacking a Valuan battleship and rescuing a mysterious captive girl named Fina, whom the Empire believes can help them conquer all of Arcadia.
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. Great story, great characters, and a good combat system make this a JRPG worth owning.
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. Anyone with younger kids (8 to 12) looking for something more than jump on the rock and grab the fruit may enjoy this game.
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. The gameplay itself is easy to pick up on, and controlling your ship is intuitive. The environments are lush and beautiful.
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. The only thing that I dislike about this game is the difficulty, I mean you have to really train to get ahead in this game. By trianing I mean a good hard 14 hours of training.
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 my way. Oh, and the battles just get too easy once you've gotten powerful enough near the later part of the middle of the game.
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. The story goes is - you mainly play Vyse a cocky air pirate who inspires to be everything his dad is and his band of pirates stand for. i.e Robin Hood - rob rich -give to the poor etc.
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. As the plot progresses an evil plot rears it's head as someone wishes to raise a lost continent and awaken the ultimate nightmare on the planet. Gameplay 8/10: This ...
Pros: Huge amounts of extra things to do and a brilliant storyline
Cons: sailing round can take a very long time at first
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.
