  • Summary: I found the story to be very captivating. The turn based fighting style was good too, if a little hard at times. It was my favorite out of the Legend of Heroes series that I played. I would like to have seen a bit more within the game / story.

  • Summary: I say the closest thing to playing A Tear of Vermilion was Game Arts' incredible Lunar series (the first two games really, the Silver Star Story and Lunar Eternal Blue)....this game is a wonderful attempt to emulate that series' great storytelling and even-handed turn-based gameplay...

  • Summary: Good JRPG. It is "classic" style though. So expect it to stay true to the 16 bit JRPGs for good and bad. This has a particularly bad translation though.

  • Summary: It's supposed to be the first game from the Gagharv trilogy from Falcom, but Namco released the game out of the original order. Play this game after Moonlight Witch, and A Song of the Ocean last.

Can bad translation really ruin a charming old school RPG?

Christopher Barrett "Evil Corgi", Amazon

  • Summary: Think about this game like so many of the 16 bit RPGs, especially Lufia and others that were just off on the edge of mainstream RPGs. If you really compare it to games like those, then you might be able to give this a fair shake.

  • Summary: Another great series from the creators of Ys. The only thing that stops me from giving this a 5 is Bandai Namco's TERRIBLE localization. Aside from that, it's still a pretty fun game.
