If you like the old school Final Fantasy games you will more than likely enjoy this game. The characters are odd but it's enjoyable.

Pros:
-Funny story
-Combat system and general gameplay are fast-paced
-Easy to play

Cons:
-This game is pretty long. As of the time of this review I have 19.7 hours on record and I don't think I'm even halfway through.
-The characters are odd in the way that it seems the creators were trying TOO hard to be original, although, the names can be entertaining.
-The humor is pretty bland and at times, annoying. The dialogue seems to carry on too long at times.

I know I gave three pros and threee cons, I didn't mean for that to seem like a bad review I only wanted to seem balanced so ill give it a rating.

Rating: 82/100

This game is interesting and fun. Unique mechanics in terms of character rotations and selection of skills. I enjoy the Penny Arcade games and recommend it for anyone who wants to play a throwback to the old RPG feel.

Though I found it shorter than the previous game, the story itself and the ending is somewhat satisfying. The new combat system reminds me a lot of Pokemon. Nevertheless, if you enjoyed Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick of Precipice of Darkness 3, you will enjoy this last installment.

This game has a Furry mode that makes the characters furries. See that girl there with the red hair? She becomes a fox. No joke. I'm serious. Tycho is a lion, and Gabe is a pink pony.

Laugh at me now, sure, but the thing is, anyone I know who would actually end up buying this game will probably be doing so for only that specific reason. That is just the demographic that I, for some reason, have ended up surrounding myself with. So, there's that.

That aside, it's a pretty funny game.

the combat becomes unbearably repetitive mostly because one is so keen to rather keep experiencing the funny dialogue, and humorous but also dramatic story, so you end up steaming along trying to get it all done in one go, but every path is blocked by constant fights.

fortunately you can speed thru the fights by decreasing the game difficulty to "easy" (at any time) and holding down a certain key (i forget which) to accelerate the animations. I do recommend this game, but play it on easy. Combat mechanic is just too meh to bother with.

thats not to say that the combat is awful, its just that there is about 15+ hours worth of combat and thats way too much for what ends up being recylcing the same abilities in the same order again, and again....and again.....and again.

...and again.

If you like 16-bit era RPG's and Penny Arcade humor, you can't really go wrong with these two games. They're each good for around 12-16 hours.

The combat can get a bit tedious as you wind up doing the same abilities repeatedly, but it is mixed up somewhat in the 4th title by having the focus switch between 2 parties through most of the game.

The story is cheese but the humor will see you through to the end. All in all they are well worth their cheap price.

Awesome old-school style RPG, with simple mechanics, sick pixel graphics and epic battle and locations music. And dont forget hilarious outside-the-box characters who never seize to amaze with their bold actions and unexpected plot twists. Every one lacking some different RPG experience should pick and try this game or even the whole series.

Definitely the best Zeboyd game to date. Major improvements over the the last 3 games. Much less linear than Precipice 3. Though still technically a linear RPG, there is an overworld that opens up more the further you get, and once again there are towns with people to chat with.

While the graphics are technically about the same as Precipice 3, there is much more detail, making lush environments and a really beautiful Overworld Map. Hyperduck did a great job with the music. Great game.

Had two problems though, that personally kept it JUST shy of FF6/Chrono Trigger levels of awesome:

1: Still using the same Main Menu and Victory/Level Up/Death resources. This drives me crazy because everything else in the game is so much better than their older games, and these would have not taken much time to update. It was ok on the other games, but honestly...it didn't even look good on BoDVII. It was an NES title but the Victory messages still looked like some crap they made in paint and tossed in there. The better the games look, the worse those messages look.

2: Few interactive objects. No examining Bookshelves or Dressers. Almost nothing you click has an effect, except for signs in one area, and few statues here and there. Big deal to me. *shrugs*

One of those games you must own if you are either fan of Final Fantasy or Pokemons. Loads of parodies like "Fish Force", old school RPG's, empty f**king chest. A game which costs only 4.99 euros is worth your time and money. I recommend this game and I can say it again : WORTH IT !!!.

P.s.Wait , why you are still reading this when you should save your money to buy this game ????

PA'sOtRSPoD4 is the conclusion to the Penny Arcade 16-bit throwback RPG saga. It maintains the same look and gameplay as the previous game in the series. As with the previous game, the battle mechanics are unique and overall decent, plus there are tons of options and strategies to play around with. This time, Instead of having "pins" with special abilities that can be assigned to characters, you now have a zoo's worth of cutesy and/or weird Pokemon-esque monsters to do your bidding. Each monster has its own set of abilities and attacks, so you have no shortage of options to find a play-style and team combination that works for you. The main characters from the previous game all return and the story continues in the same strange and often amusing fashion. All is fine on that front, and the saga comes to a satisfying conclusion. Overall, the game seemed a bit easier than the previous one, but you have the option to change the difficulty at any time, in case you want a steeper challenge or can't get by a particular battle. In summary, this is a worthy conclusion to the series, assuming you have played and enjoyed the previous games. If neither of those things is the case, then I'm not sure I would recommend it unless you are a mega-huge fan of old-school RPGs and Penny Arcade. It's a passable game, but only has niche appeal. For existing fans of the series, I'd give it a solid B or B+, and for non-fans who are into 16-bit RPGs maybe a C or B-.

A very uniqe game to say the least. Definitely worth playing for a few bucks. I have to say I liked the fighting style better in 3 but the map is more broad in this game. This series seems to thrive on wacked out endings. Wish there was more to add but the game is just simple rpg funnness. I wouldn't say the humor was that great here but still an enjoyable game.

This game is an absolute riot. If you like to have fun and are at least a little bit willing to laugh at pop/geek culture, then this is a must-play.

Never knew about the rest of the series but I got this with a 50% Steam coupon (Coupons - Helping Steam every badge)
This is a really nice style of RPG, it's not outdated that is the design and it's really nice.

Dialog is funny and not the kind I'd like to skip and the combat is classic turn based and that's why I love it.
You don't need to play the olders because they had different people behind it and this game explains the story at the start.

A must have, pick it up sometime, not an RPG you will die on like Witcher 2 or Dark Souls but great fun.

16 bit final fantasy still EXCEPT unlike last time when your characters fought you know have creatures do that for you. So... Throw some Pokemon in the mix, your characters level up but so do the creatures.
The story is now ridicules but that hardly matters :)

It's like a pokemon game mixed with Final Fantasy. I suggest playing 3 and perhaps 1/2 (if you REALLY want the story) before this one. The humor is basically the main reason to get this. It's kind of a retro fantasy game, this along with PA3 and Cuthulu Saves the World are all pretty good. If you like PA's humor it's a bonus, the writing is all done by Tycho. The devs are pretty great people as well. It's a pretty simple JRPG, doesn't bring much new to the table, the battle system is mostly the same as PA3 and CSTW. If you wanted more content for PA3 this is a good buy, but it won't bring many people who hate JRPGs a reason to play. 8/10.

Rain-Slick 4 is an improvement on Rain-Slick 3 in almost every way. Once again, I played through the game on Insane difficulty. Due to the new monster ally mechanic, party member roles are not as rigid, and many battles require a different approach than using the same team composition over and over. While the overall challenge is slightly less than 3, it felt more rewarding to clear a hard encounter through modifying my strategy rather than just retrying and hoping my tank takes more hits; not to mention, there are still plenty of formidable opponents in the optional content.

Aesthetically, the lush landscapes and eccentric creatures of Underhell are far more delightful to behold compared to the streets and buildings of New Arcadia. Along with that, significant upgrades have been given to the music and sound effects, including a couple of really stand-out boss themes, which is excellent because boss themes are the most important aspect in judging a JRPG's quality.

My only criticisms are that, for most of the game, the focus switches between two separate parties with their own monster groups. Equipped items are not shared and money is rather scarce, so having to re-optimize after each swap can be quite irritating. The story is also barely-existent, essentially serving as "an event happened in the previous game and now you have to kill these things and then a final boss so the series can end." There are a few twists, but they are hard to care about because the characters are primarily vehicles for jokes rather than empathy. This was expected, as Penny Arcade has primarily been about comedy, but again it tends to be hit-and-miss. Personally, while many of the outlandish enemy designs and descriptions genuinely entertained me, the dialogue has a prevalence of snark, walls of text, CAPITALIZED SENTENCES WITH NO PUNCTUATION, "hitting stuff is funny," and "we all hate everything" that I can definitely see irritating certain audiences.

Still, this is Zeboyd's best game to date, and indeed, one of the most well-refined JRPGs I've played. An exceptionally good deal at $5 for ~15 hours of game time, and an absolute must for those who would rather think than grind.

OK, if you like old fashioned RPG's, you owe it to yourself to get this! I had a lot of fun with this series. 3 and 4 somehow manage to stand on their own (though you should really play the whole series). It is fun and ridiculous and can be very challenging. Also, get it just because Gabe is awesome. :)

Really fun, but a game you can't really replay, unless your going for like insane mode or haven't played in so long you forget the story. Gameplay is really fun though
