So far so good

Summary: I'm not deep into the game, but I do all my PSP shopping on the PSP network - its easier than buying UMDs especially as they become scarcer with the Vita as the newest system. I'm beginning to do the same with the 3DS. The graphics are beautiful, play control is excellent, and the story so far is earning up to its appeal set by the game's reception with most reviewers.
Summary: I have been playing Legend of Heroes - Trails in the Sky for several weeks. The story of Estelle and Joshua Bright so far, in their quest to become Bracers has been a lot of fun. The characters that you meet are interesting and the boss battles that you encounter as you "uphold justice and peace" can be quite challenging. The only drawback which is minimal is the lack of detail maps being revealed after exploring an area or the setting of waypoints.
Different in that it's more classical than groundbreaking

Summary: The charm of Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky is in its resemblance to the older 16-bit story driven RPGs of the past. Anyone who is disenchanted with the blockbuster RPGs of today yet remembers fondly playing turn based little gems on the SNES will definitely find something here. Newer generations might miss the charm of this title, but some might find its different approach to the flashier of its genre appealing.
Excellent game, flawed by excessive dialogue, slow pace, and high complexity

Summary: Other reviewers have said everything positive I want to say about this game. The series is among my top 5 favorites. However I gave it four stars for: (1) Some dialogues are too long and/or irrelevant. (2) Battles and the plot are slow, which is made worse by slow, relaxing background music and excessive dialogue. (3) The Orbment (magic) system is complicated. The complexity is manageable in the First Chapter.

Summary: Story: Josh and Estelle are the children of Cassius Bright, one of the greatest bracers in the history of the bracer guild. Following in his footsteps they have been training to begin their apprenticeship so that they can begin the journey to become fully fledged bracers. The day that that they take the final training test there is an emergency that causes their father to have leave early for an important mission.
C'mon people. It's NOT 5 stars. Let's be honest with ourselves.

Summary: I'm sure I'll get blasted for this review, but whatever. I feel compelled to put up one that is decidedly honest, and you can of course play the game and see for yourself. It's not a bad game. But it's NOT a 5-star game. Trails of the Sky is an entry in the long, oft-ignored Legend of Heroes series for PSP.
** 26 hours in and still going strong! This game is an actual adventure :)

Summary: WARNING: This game has a lot of text! If you do not like to read text and prefer CG graphics, FMV cutscenes or no storyline at all, this game is not for you.But if you DO enjoy a deep story and are fine with reading text, get ready for an RPG like none other. It's a very special game. :) STORY: I have never seen an RPG where the characterizations were GENUINELY deep. People talk about characters that they like in other games but there is no comparison to this.
Summary: Let me immediately say that LOH Trails in the Sky (or TITS as i call it ;) is a good game. If you love JRPGS and turn-based battles, certainly give it a buy. This is a PSP gem worth having. With that said, I still feel as though The Legend of Heroes has a ways to go in its battle against mediocrity. This will be a brief review that I hope to update once i've completely finished the game.
Conclusion: This game is a very slow starting game where about 95% of the first chapter is talking. Normally this would really annoy me as I like to get straight to the action when I play hand held RPGs. At times I felt as if I was going to just skip all the dialogue scenes by mashing the X button.
Summary: This game provides a fun old school RPG experience for players who enjoyed the sprite based action and light hearted take of some of the older generation RPGs. The battles range from challenging to mundane but the experience system prevents you from grinding so as long as you fight a few battles you'll generally be where you need to be. Its a talkative game so be prepared for a lot of reading, the inter party banter gives the game life.
