I defenitely recommend this game! The steam version has many extra perks that the real game doesn't have! Some of these perks are battle mountain (A place where you get to fight upgraded bosses. You don't get any experience, AP, or gold, but you can get some really sweet loot! You also have the amazing soundtrack in the installation folder, if you're into that. I totally am ^^. The game also looks and sounds much better than the flash version.

5/5 Amazing game C:

When you first look at this game you might judge it too quickly and believe that it is not worth it and you will be doing the biggest mistake in your whole life... okay I am exagerating here, but trust me. I have played this game when it only had the flash version and I played most of the previous versions too. It has a fun and cool story, the artwork is pretty cool and the soundtrack is amazing, I get the feels just by listening to the soundtrack while not playing the game at all.

Another thing is, you might expect it to be just another simple RPG game, but this game has a complex system with many stats and elements and you might find a great challenge while playing in the EPIC difficult, but you can also just go for the casual or normal difficult.

You might find yourself enjoying playing this game much more than many AAA games out there.

I would like to thank Matt Roszak, Halcyonic Falcon X and everyone else who helped to make this masterpiece.

Excellent game. Best indy rpg I've played, and definitly one of the best jrpgs I've tried(up there with Golden Sun and Dragonquest)
It has remarkably detailed combat, and usign weaknesses and resistances is about the only way to take down some of the tougher foes.
It also has a lot of hidden items ^w^ And many easter eggs.
It also uses an unusual system for encoutners, with most battles only happening if you target the foe and start it yourself, with most batles having preset compositions(a nice change from the usual random encoutners of jrpgs).

Didn't really know what too expect from this game when i saw it on sale BUT whatever i gave it a go.
Guessing im not very far in the game it's pretty fun already, so can't wait for the other parts.
It's turn based and easy for newcomers like me too understand everything.
I heard u can play this for free on the webs, so ''why'' should u buy it?
Well if u want him too continue making fun games like this isn't it better too support him by buying the game?

10/10 it's freakin cool

This game I got on sale for 6.49, but I would probably be willing to pay 15~ for it. Fun and challenging battle system with casual - hardcore difficulties, and seemingly lots of endgame content. It's a lot of fun, and pretty strategic. Commentary in the game definitely makes the whole thing that much more worthwhile :D

i've been a fan of the EBF series since the very first, and this game, differs from the natural trend of "the sequals are never as good as the first" these games just get better and better.
i absolutely love EBF4, the introduction of the new character, Anna, and all the witty comments and banter between the characters (especialy lance and Matt) is an absolute delight. i played the free version of the game, which in no way compares to the exclusive content on the payed version. Battle mountain poses a challenge at any level, makeing the player use elemental weaknesses and strengths to their advantage without even knowing what they will have to use.
the art style is quirky (in a word) but still really good, the particle effects of the skills are something else completely, in a good way of course.
all in all. i love this game (not to mention the creator and the artist) i'd reccomend it to anyone wanting to have some nostalgia in the turnbased combat system, as well as all the references to boot in the game.
10/10 complete must buy, deffinately worth the moneys.

I liked the part with the bouncing boobs.

But seriously, I've been playing this series since it's 1st release and maaaaan! This is one of the best old school RPGs i've ever played. The game may not take itself that seriously, but there's a lot of strategy in almost every single aspect: weapons, armor, accesories, crafting, buffs, resistances and weaknesses... thare's a lot going on in a single fight, so you can either plan your moves acording to every situation or just don't give a ♥♥♥♥ and start using finishing moves all over the place. Solid gameplay, solid experience, pretty darn funny!

This is easily one of the best RPG's I've ever played. It has an amazing combat system and soundtrack, along with weapons, armor, and spells that do not disappoint. There are many rewarding secrets to find, bosses to kill, and quests to complete. You can customize each character (to an extent) to have certain spells and strengths that suit your play style. The story is a little bit on the plain side, but the characters dialogue and comments in battle kept me laughing and smiling all the way to the final boss. :3

I've got this game on a bundle. Tried it just for fun, the graphics and the screenshots were quite uninviting. Ended playing it for almost 30 hours. This game is amazing on many different levels. If you are into JRPGs give it a chance because it definitely deserves it.

Randomly found this game and seeing that it had JRPG elements, i investigated further. I Watched a few gameplay video's, read the full description, but i found myself still not convinced that it was of worth. I Thought to myself, " just go for it".. i did not regret it one bit. I Am so addicted.

How this game was created, was so thoughtful to details in the terms of gameplay. From witty dialog that pops up but does not get in your face, the excellent setup of the battle system, puzzles, loads of achievements to keep a player occupied, to even the collectable elements. The game is just so thoughfully pieced together.

I Would recommend this game to anyone who loves the JRPG genre, and everyone else alike.

I wish i could say how much I love this game! It has amazing battle system and it has alot of old concepts that game developers have just thrown away in exchange for newer ideas that are less developed, BUT (And this is a big but) I'd have to say every character in this game is forgettable even the people you play as are very forgetable even though there is alot of character development. I feel if you go through the game being all "who is that again?" to your party members it is just not worth it. 4/10 GG no RE-match...

This Game series to me atleast has been the best on newgrounds its always brought me back for more.
This one is no different ive put 320 hours into the newgrounds version and 221 hours in the Kongregate version and bought the prem on there, so when I heard it was on steam it was a no brainer to get I havent actually had time to play it much since I bought it buy it was well worth it and I look forward to seeing if there will be a EB 5.
If you love Rpgs look no further this is the game for you.
Possibally the best feature of this though is the ability to play offline so if ur on a road trip with your parents or camping out and you got your laptop just load steam offline and play away.

First and foremost, this is essentially an upgraded flash game. If you dont want to pay full price (which is understandable for some people) then wait for a sale.

This game brings back the classic feel of a turn based rpg system in a warm, fun filled cartoony format. It is not a childish kind of fun, but is still best left to those who like games that are not even close to serious and are meant to just screw around with. That being said, it is possible to either breeze through the storyline or sit and grind for god knows how long on achievements. Either one works.

If anyone were to ask me if this game is worth getting, I'd respond with "Do you like cheesy, fun games that arent at all serious? If so then yes."

You can still click on Natalie's boobs to make them jiggle

10/10.

No but actually if you're like me and grew up with cutesy japanese rpgs and mmos, just get this game. It's exactly that but minus grinding and it's funnier. If you must, consider the free prequel on newgrounds a free demo which might I add has less features than this version.

Lots of fun, lots of action, a quest devoted to finding underware, and a medal for touching a female characters breast all with a funny story as its base. What more could you want.
