I have been ware of this line of software for something like 10 years. Initially, I always kind of thought of it as a joke, but that had more to do with my own inscecurities than any short coming of the software. I knew HTML/CSS when I first played, with a little JS. Since then I have played and learned and used C/C++ as well as PHP and Programming (Arduino!) and various other languages from time to time... but during all that I had this little seed of an idea I had stewed on for years, a game that was always thought of as a 2d RPG... And well here I am back to the original software that planted that seed of an idea and I can easily say that if your vision is some sort of SNES style RPG you have found your software. Don't waste your time reinventing the wheel. You have found what you need.

RPG Maker VX Ace is the newest in the line of RPG Maker toolkits by ASCII and Enterbrain. For anyone who aspires to create games as a hobby or perhaps as a profession, it's certainly a good tool to take a look at. You can easily make the most simple and casual of role playing games with it or you can spend countless hours trying to make your very own masterpiece that you may or may not finish. While there are a few limitations in the software, many have been overcome through community works and scripting, to the point that the primary limitation is your own desire to finish a project.

If you've even had a passing interest at making your own role playing game, this is well worth the purchase. The default graphics are quite usable, the character creation software increases that (my own portrait comes from this software), and there are plenty of free and commercial graphics, music, and scripting packs you can find. So check it out. This is certainly the best RPG Maker to dive in with!

RPG Maker VX Ace is a very powerful tool, especially when you know how to use it. While not as easy as it is advertised where you can simply pick up the program and go straight into making games ( actually you can, but there is a chance you're going to get stuck), it is one of the best tools that is readily available. Though, admittedly, not much is really needed to start since you learn as you go through tutorials and good old fashion trial and error. The program comes with everything you need to make a straightforward enough 'classic' rpg game; graphics, music, special effects, the means to program and coordinate 'events', the ability to customize character classes, set abilities, even a character generator which does help when you're not familiar with spriting (I'm still learning! :D ), and so much more! The amount of customization is astounding, even further, the potential of your projects are limitless if you have the time and means to dedicate to your game. (Not to mention all the DLC which is now readily available!)

What I say I love best about RPG Maker is the community, they are more than willing to help provide resources such as tutorials, music, advice, graphics, scripts, and anything else you might need. So far from what I've seen, they are very welcoming and always happy to see new game makers on the rise. The community is supportive, but they also urge you to stand on your own and make your own mistakes.

I definitely would recommend this software to anyone who has wanted to be a game developer or just has a passion for the medium, whether you're doing this for the pursuit of putting out a commercial project or something you want to do on your down time rpg maker is worth it.

This is a very good software to use if you love playing RPGs or if you want to make video games for a living. It will help you with a lot of things to help you design your game. With tons of characters, portraits, and tilesets already made, you have a lot for you to use at your disposal. And even with the abundance you are given, if you still thirst for more, the steam workshop and the rest of the internet offer even more resources for your project. I do recommend this software but I also give you advice to buy it during a sale, as 70 bucks is a lot of money.

It's simple yet complex. You can make the most fun, challenging of games with just a few clicks. It's not only easy to develop RPG games but fun too. The only downside to this software is the hefty price tag. I don't feel that RPG Maker VX Ace should cost £50, that's a lot. I think that if Enterbrain scaled the price down to £20 it'd get far more attention hence more copies sold. Other than that I really recommend this useful, easy-to-use software.

If you don't know how to code a program from scratch, this is great! It can be a bit overwhelming, but it can't be worst than actually coding everything.

One of the best RPG making softwares out there... if your willing to spend $70 USD on the base product and another $837.96 USD on the DLC. None the less if you are willing to spend some money on this or wait for sales it does pay off. All up a good program...
