I came into this series as a fan of Zeboyd games and with little knowledge of Penny Arcade. Zeboyd continues to demonstrate their love for old-school RPGs and their deep understanding of what makes for a good battle system. This game quietly has one of the very best battle systems of any JRPG style game. I cannot overstate how satisfying the battles are in this game and the difficulty setting allow you to adjust it to your liking. The story isn't super memorable overall, but the writing is funny and well done and moves the story along nicely.

If you like Penny-Arcade, JRPGs, and Grandia-ish battle systems, then you'll probably like this game.

Pros
++ Battle system is like Grandia. (It has an Initiaive Bar for when each character's action will occur).
++ No random encounters. You see enemies on the map.
+ I never played the first two PA RPGs, but was fine starting with this one.
+ Reasonable length. I got ~35 hours out of it. You could also spend less or more time.
+ 16-bit style is well-executed.

Cons
- I recall the menus being tedious to maneuver through.
- The class system is unique, but messier than it needs to be.

So far 6 hours, if you love these sort of games which I never knew I did, well I do, 10/10 even with no prior experience with the games story or playing the first 2, this game is the bomb. Once I complete it its onto Darkness 4, Besides some odd keyboard configurations like knowing you need to press Q to escape the game then click exit game, since ESC does not work in this game, and knowing TAB gets you to the rest of the functions. Highly recommended game!

Despite the change of art, it's a great 16-bit style RPG! You know hoe you sometimes watch cooking shows while you eat? I played this while eating hot dogs and natural sugar cane coca cola. IT JUST. WORKS.

Penny's Arcade on the Rain-Slick Prince of Darkness 3, un juego que seguro todos tenemos, pero pocos lo han probado. Es la primer vez que termino un juego rpg como este titulo y admito que quedé satisfecho. Esperaba algo aburrido y malo, grata sorpresa al encontrar una historia divertida y muchos personajes bizarros. Los únicos peros que le encuentro son que aveces las batallas eran un poco repetitivas y que el juego no esté en español. Seguiré ahora con el DLC gratutito que incluye
¡Recomendado!

Tiene una estética muy nostálgica, de esas que gustan tanto a los antiguos jugones. No obstante, el sistema de menús, la forma en la que está orientado y programado el juego y su modo historia me ponen enfermo habiendo jugado tan solo 20 minutos. Los primeros y últimos 20 minutos que le dedico.

TL:DR = 8/10

First of all, I enjoyed it. It definately had shining moments, but also many drawbacks.

I really started laughing quite a bit once I got into it, despite just rolling my eyes at the beginning. What really kept me playing was the character interaction, and the overall artstyle of the game. It also looks like Precipice 4 has improved a lot of the "linear" issues, so it's worth playing to lead into that.

It definately looks like a later SNES title (though not quite Chrono Trigger, or FF6 but close). An interesting battle system compared to 16 bit titles from back in the day...definitely unique.

I like how you can mix and match classes however you want, but having to build MP was annoying for me. Sometimes the battles were interesting and other times redundant, leaving me wanting to just see what happens next in the story instead of fighting.

Way too linear. I actually really like the "Super Mario World" style overworld -one of my favorite things in the game- but the individual areas were way too linear for me. No towns, no townsfolks to chat with, and you can't enter any buildings/rooms within the individual areas. Looking at Bookshelves and drawers give the same text for each one.

Music is pretty good, but there isn't enough of it, so it becomes repetitive. Certainly no memorable tunes like the classics, other than perhaps the battle theme...but you hear plenty of it..

I enjoyed it a lot and I'm really glad I played it but as far as recommending it to someone else...I'm not sure. For the price, yeah. If 4 continues to be as good as it seems so far, (More of a Cthulu vibe) definately.

Before the release of final fantasy titles on steam, there was Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3. Bearing in mind that this game doesn't relate much to the previous two titles (as they were 3D games and developed by different team), you can easily go head first into this game without playing the others which is nice. The music is alright at setting the mood of the game. The dialogue and story is funny at times and quite unique.

The gameplay is like final fantasy 3 and 4. You start a few roles (i.e classes) for each character, but you unlock and can switch between more roles later in the game as your character levels up. The combat is similar to the 'Active Time Battle' system in final fantasy IV. Each character (including enemies) will have to wait until their portrait on the top screen passes a line before they are able to make a move. This may be seen as a good thing as you have some time to plan out moves for your characters, however the combat may seem slow to some (especially those who haven't played previous 2D final fantasy titles). There are a limited of monsters in each area and they don't respawn after you defeat them, but you can see them so you won't be walking into a trap. There is also a colliseum where you can easily grind to level up quicker if you wish. There are also some stores laying around which some decent items and equipment at decent to rediculously expensive prices.

Besides the normal campaign, there is also a prequel campaign that doesn't really offer much to the story, but contains more challenging monsters.

If you are looking for a cheap final fantasy-like game or never played any of them before you should try this game out. However, if you don't like turn base combat (like previous final fantasy games) you should stay away.

Whether you're acquainting yourself with eldritch horrors that seep through the frayed weave of reality or just punching a bunch of filthy hobos in their filth-filled mouth-parts, On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 is a delight. Combining the creative power of Penny Arcade with Zeboyd's love for old-school role-playing games creates a package of hilarious weirdness and nostalgic vibrations (with a couple hints of modernity) that feels neither derivative nor stale. The turn-based combat has a perfectly applied dose of additional strategy, which can bring even a high-leveled party of characters to their doom if their actions are dictated without thought. To compliment this, the story, dialogue, items, and enemies all carry the ridiculous, eloquent, occasionally poetic writing of Jerry "Tycho" Holkins as well as art inspired by Mike "Gabe" Krahulik. All of these elements together make On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 a funny, bizarre quest that any fan of early RPGs is sure to enjoy.

The long-delayed sequel. Gone is the ability to make your own character; you'll be playing the PA guys the whole game. Also gone are the 3D polygon graphics and animation, replaced with SNES-esque sprites and tiles. This would be a big step back in some ways, but fortunately, the combat makes up for that. It's got some ideas borrowed from other games (like Grandia and FFT A2), and some new ones. The classes are also pretty interesting, and offer some good combinations. Fights are less plentiful than some games, but still relatively common, and the enemies are tough, so they can take a while.
I was annoyed by the fact that, if you stick with the same classes the whole game, you won't wind up with all of them capped out. To explain further, you start out with no class equipped and quickly gain your first set, then later get another set and the ability to equip a second. There will still be leftovers, however, and unequipped ones earn less exp than selected ones. Add in 2 more factors: the number of fights (and thus exp) in the game is limited (monsters don't respawn), and there's a bonus dungeon that can only be unlocked by maxing out all the classes. You can see how this would be frustrating, to finish the game and be stuck with no way to get into the bonus area. Now, there is an arena where you can fight stuff, but I'm not sure if they give much exp. Might try this later on.
