À propos de ce jeu

The Demon of Fear, Azutura, is slowly but surely awaking because the world is increasingly being dominated by thieves, rogues and bandits. Indeed - Azutura feeds on people's fears. The solution is found and crafted by the best alchemists of the realm: a special relic whose vapors will put the Demon in a profound sleep for the next few decades or so.

A notorious traveler gifted with an extraordinary strength, Jordan, is sent to the House of Fear where the Demon lies to do the job. But the very first day of his mission, he is robbed by thieves and loses the precious relic!

Ce RPG avait un scénario qui m'avait accroché, de la bonne musique et des bons graphismes, mais les dialogues, écrit de façon puéril, et sa difficulté mal dosée fait que je ne peux pas le recommander.

Pour la difficulté : les combats réguliers peuvent être des défis, mais les boss sont extrêmement durs et une seule stratégie peut les vaincre. Parfois, il faut avoir X personnage pour y arriver, et ce même personnage est optionnel. Donc, si vous n'avez pas trouvé tous les persos optionnels avant ce combat, vous êtes foutu. Sinon, grinder peut parfois fonctionner, mais alors c'est du long. J'ai dû grinder pendant 3+ heures juste pour vaincre un boss, et c'était au début du jeu.

The game takes us back to many years ago, when it was important, not graphics, and content of the game. Unlike many games made on RPGMaker, The Book of Legends does not keep us from beginning to end on the same track, at any time, you can shake the characters wander through to the best locations confusing. Yes, the plot is simple, but interesting. At the beginning of a play, but then the battle more complicated and you have to think about how to defeat a particular enemy. Developers have tried to, you can play as the keyboard and using a mouse. The game is great.

Si vous souhaitez une évaluation rapide la voici: The Book of Legends est un solide jeu fait via RPGmaker. Il a pour une lui une bande-son de qualité retranscrivant bien les atmosphères du jeu, des personnages très attachants et avec un bon sens de l'humour. Le jeu souffre juste de certaines limitations dues à RPGmaker, du Farm bien trop présent et la barrière de la langue car si vous maîtrisez pas l'anglais bah tant pis pour vous. Mais on a tout de même affaire à un vrai bon petit RPG avec une bonne durée de vie bourré d'humour et de persos cools avec en prime une durée de vie plus que correcte, à tenter si vous êtes fan du genre, une bonne petite surprise.


Si désormais vous désirez plus de détails sur les bons points et les mauvais points du jeu, je vous invite à lire ce qui suit:
+Les musiques, elles sont très sympathiques. Elles ne sont pas forcément ultra originales mais elles collent parfaitement à l'atmosphère que cherche à véhiculer le jeu, je pense notamment à celle sur la carte. Dans tous les cas l'atmosphère d'Asie médiévale que cherche à retranscrire le jeu est très présente.
+Les personnages, ils sont présents en grand nombre, il y a en effet une foultitude à recruter (dont plusieurs animaux) lesquels sont assez attachants ou drôles . Je prends l'exemple de Teskab, un mec à tête de panier que vous ne pouvez recruter que si vous observez un des nombreux paniers du jeu ou encore du perso principal, Jordan, arrogant envers tous et qui ne manque à aucun moment de moquer les autres et qu'il est supérieur à eux qui devient un véritable merveilleux ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.
+L'humour, il est très présent dans le jeu et fait souvent mouche. Le jeu par exemple en plus de l'humour de ses personnages, prend le temps de se moquer de nombreux poncifs du genre RPG ou de moquer l'absurdité de certaines situations comme lorsqu'on trouve un objet dans une colonne cassée.

+/-les quêtes secondaires, si elles sont en général assez sympas, plus d'une sera assez cryptique ou ne pourra pas se faire avant un moment précis de l'histoire et même là en soit on a un peu oublié leurs existences. Le jeu vous demandera beaucoup de fouiner absolument partout et si vous aimez pas ça ben... ♥♥♥♥♥.

-Le farm, c'est un aspect du genre qui ne me dérange personnellement pas. Cependant il y a des jeux où le farm peut être bien trop fastidieux, c'est le cas de ce jeu. Car oui si les actions s'enchaînent assez vite, le nombre de combats nécessaires pour un combat peut parfois être énorme. En plus le farm est absolument nécessaire pour avancer dans l'histoire. Le farm est don ici complètement mal dosé amenant à pas mal de moments où si on a rien à faire à côté on se fait carrément chier.
-Les limites RPGmaker, elles sont extrêmement visibles. Même sans être un pro avec RPGmaker ont peut voir de partout les marques du moteur. Du coup y a des moments où le jeu apparaît un peu limité par tout ça et n'arrive pas à s'en détacher ou à faire quelque chose avec.
-La barrière de la langue, j'ai pas de souci avec l'anglais, mais il reste dommage de voir que de nombreux joueurs se voient privés de titres par la barrière de l'anglais.

En bref, en résumé: On a là un jeu RPGmaker avec beaucoup de contenu, servi par une ambiance pas mal du tout et peuplé de personnages attachants, mais qui se voit un peu plombé par du farm trop présent et des limites du moteur assez flagrantes. Si vous le genre ou tout simplement RPGmaker et que vous ne savez pas trop quoi faire, bah ce jeu est vraiment pas mal et aura de quoi vous occuper.

RPG Maker GEM. Legitimate RPG game if you have the time. Real roleplaying elements but lackluster characters. Music is a 10/10!

I love the characters and the storyline but there is so much endless grinding (as usual of these kinds of RPGs, random encounters that pop up every ten seconds or so) that I find myself very reluctant to continue. That's the biggest headache with this game. To get to a boss battle and advance the storyline, the player has to encounter about a hundred battles against the same kinds of enemies ove rand over. There's no way to avoid it and considering that many of the dungeons are mazes, the chance that the player has to backtrack paths is very high and hence even more boring battles with endless minions. The actual battle system is the typical I power up and hit you, you hit me, I heal sort of routine so it's really not much fun. Because of all this, I have to not recommend this game unless you're willing to go through all of it. I had enough patience to play 19 hours of this game and I'm about done with my patience.

It's hard to make a compelling RPG Maker game. Especially considering that Final Fantasy VI is my all time favorite video game ever. So when an RPG Maker game comes even halfway to the point of FFVI's brilliance, it's worth playing. Granted, I haven't played a ton of this game so far and may update my review later. Additionally, I'm only playing in Casual Mode, so I can't speak to the RPG Mode's balance/grinding aspect. (I don't have nearly as much time for games as I did in my youth, so the Casual Mode saves a lot of time for my adulting responsibilities.) Only down side for me so far is that the main character is a complete jerk. Fine narrative, but I tend not to root for these kinds of characters. Aside from that, there's lots to explore, side quests, and even a rooster companion. My ultimate point is that I've spent money on giving other RPG Maker games a chance in the past and gave up on some within minutes. The fact that I want to complete this game speaks volumes.

This game is an outstanding one to play. It is a long game with plenty of replay value. The artwork is beautiful. It's settings and characters are very oriental depicted. There are 2 levels of choice to play. No secret rooms as such but plenty of hidden items in all areas. The characters have many facets to themselves and there is a lot of humour throughout the game. Levelling up is a must as they aqcquire better magical skills and a lot of these skills are required. With 28 side quests as well as the main storyline gives this game it's most appeal and length. There are 18 humans - some only available on re-plays, 12 animals plus 1 demon to have in your party list so making the game rather interesting. There are multiple endings depending on your choices throughout the game. A "go-through" is availble after you have finished some areas. The story line centres on finding and stopping demons arising to take over the country and Jordan ( the main character and very egoistic) is given the task to stop the 1st one arising but things do not go as planned and so the real task begins. The Book of Legends depicts when and where these events will occur. Battle scenes are the usual rpg type and are random encounters. An auto-save is available and Jordan also has a save spell. Turorial books are in most areas for help. Party splits are also used in the game. The sprites depicting each character are very artistic and beautiful. Overall it is a very interesting and colourful game to play and I would much recommend it to players.

I really enjoy this game. I'm a fan of the old turn based Super Nintendo era RPG's anyhow and for me this is great. It is a fairly open world game with a lot to do or not do outside of the main questline, and the character/companion dialogues and options keep me entertained that much more. Plus Steam achievements are also a plus as I like chasing them down, and Steam cloud support is great when like me you switch between a couple of computers fairly often. Overall I'd rate this game a 7.5 or 8 out of 10. Definitely Recommend!

What would surprise me? Another RPG, 16-bit, one-time story ... but no. You hear me? I was wrong. After starting the game, I realized that I was wrong. I met the gorgeous music. It is ideally suited to this fantasy. Then I was struck by the story. The plot is not straightforward as in most similar games. The developer was able to accommodate such an interesting and lively history in such a vicious game engine. The game just begs to go beyond it. Then I meet the combat system. Since childhood, the famous battle system. I like it. I am pleased. I can manage, and the mouse and keyboard. It's great. I drink coffee and play. I am comfortable. And so, to my regret, I have to go out of the game ... And what do I see? Gameplay has saved automatically, but I can save it manually. I am pleased. I saved the game and are happy to continue to play, but later. Score: 10/10 I do not regret the time spent on "The Book of Legends"

Excellent role-playing game with an interesting plot and original quests !

We go on the forest maze with a rooster and handing out blows to the right and to the left, meeting new characters along the way girls and not only . The hero tries to find an artifact ( relic ) and destroyed with the help of her demons.
Of the minuses absence of Russian localization (text ) . Knowledge of English is desirable for understanding the whole story , though it is possible to understand without knowing the language .

The Book of Legends - a long and old-fashioned RPG with plenty of characters and locations.
The game is designed for a long passage.

The game is very big world and a huge variety of characters that can be taken out. The truth here is to find many of them are quite difficult.
The game is also available two modes - casual and role.
Role-playing mode to play a little harder.
The world is truly at large and go through it all without spending a lot of time is virtually impossible. In addition, there are so many dead ends, and the enemies at all sypyatsya in abundance every few dozen steps. All under the law of the genre.
The only question is - whether you like the hardcore RPG? If yes - I advise you to play this game.

The only negative is the lack of Russian language, but you can more or less understand without it.

The Book of Legends is a classic-style JRPG created with the RPGmaker engine. The game begins with Jordan, a man on a delivery of utmost importance, who is promptly robbed on the first night of his journey. He teams up with some unlikely allies (including a chicken…) and goes in search of his lost item. Presumably other hijinks ensue, but I didn’t make it far enough to find out.

I honestly thought this game sounded cool, and it definitely has its good points, but ultimately I ended up giving up on it in pretty short order. I generally like the silliness of the game: being able to recruit a chicken is rather novel, and I found having a protagonist as evil-looking as Jordan to be pretty amusing. I also like the snappiness of a lot of the dialogue, but unfortunately its implementation (phrasing, I guess?) feels very unpolished, which detracts from its overall appeal. The story hook was pretty mediocre; not super interesting, but not a deal-breaker in and of itself. What really killed it for me was Jordan himself: I found his character to be unsympathetic and generally unlikeable.

In another genre, an annoying protagonist is surmountable, but in a JRPG, where the gameplay is usually the weakest part, there has to be some combination of character- and storyline-investment to incentivize grinding onwards, and I just couldn’t get invested in this game.

This game definitely has some good points, and I think that other JRPG fans who find Jordan less grating might enjoy it. Personally, though, I have enough other unplayed games of this genre in my library that I can’t imagine ever coming back to it.

Of the minuses absence of Russian localization (text ) . Knowledge of English is desirable for understanding the whole story , though it is possible to understand without knowing the language .

Game was unbalanced and felt that some characters were created with no efforts.

What would surprise me? Another RPG, 16-bit, one-time story ... but no. You hear me? I was wrong. After starting the game, I realized that I was wrong. I met the gorgeous music. It is ideally suited to this fantasy. Then I was struck by the story. The plot is not straightforward as in most similar games. The developer was able to accommodate such an interesting and lively history in such a vicious game engine. The game just begs to go beyond it. Then I meet the combat system. Since childhood, the famous battle system. I like it. I am pleased. I can manage, and the mouse and keyboard. It's great. I drink coffee and play. I am comfortable. And so, to my regret, I have to go out of the game ... And what do I see? Gameplay has saved automatically, but I can save it manually. I am pleased. I saved the game and are happy to continue to play, but later. Score: 10/10 I do not regret the time spent on "The Book of Legends"

The Book of Legends - a long and old-fashioned RPG with plenty of characters and locations.
The game is designed for a long passage.

The game is very big world and a huge variety of characters that can be taken out. The truth here is to find many of them are quite difficult.
The game is also available two modes - casual and role.
Role-playing mode to play a little harder.
The world is truly at large and go through it all without spending a lot of time is virtually impossible. In addition, there are so many dead ends, and the enemies at all sypyatsya in abundance every few dozen steps. All under the law of the genre.
The only question is - whether you like the hardcore RPG? If yes - I advise you to play this game.

The only negative is the lack of Russian language, but you can more or less understand without it.

If you're checking the reviews, it probably means you know what you're in for with this game: old school JRPG. But not any old school JRPG: you're dealing with someof the finest kind here.
Aldorlea Games have build a solid reputation in the rpg-maker scene since years, and this is some of their best game.

C'est assez rare qu'un jeu me fasse dropper aussi rapidement, mais bon.

Certes il n'est pas très cher, mais il y a des choses qu'on ne pardonne pas. L'écriture par exemple, ce qui pour un RPG est quand même important, est ici bâclée. On a l'impression de lire des dialogues éécrits par un adolescent américain. A cela s'ajoute les assets RPG Maker pas très très folichons (y'a du mieux depuis 3 Stars of Destiny quand même).

Bref, à moins d'avoir quelques euros à claquer, et être un mordu des JRPG cheapos passez votre chemin.

I have played a few hundred RPG Maker games over the past 15 years and the Book of Legends is a standout from the norm. It is a standard old-school, turn based battle JPRG along the lines of the Dragon Quest or and original Final Fantasy series with a lot of emphasis on exploration. The dungeons are big, open and detailed. They have a lot of interactive objects with loot hidden in more than just chests and dressers. You will find plenty of characters to join your party hidden throughout the game. These include cows, chickens, men hiding in baskets. Again, you are rewarded for exploration in big ways.

The game feels free and open after the first area where you can go virtually anywhere you can walk to if not fast travel for gold. Each town feels big, and there are small settlements littered throughout the world map that add a lot to the game. You'll find merchants, shops, shrines and quests in each town, settlement and castle. My only problem is the world map itself for the most part are literally lines of land instead of big expansive plots of land like the towns and dungeons are big and ripe for exploration. The one problem with such big towns is that there is no run button.

Once you've gone through a tunnel, you have an option when going back into it whether or not to simply travel through it or go into it. Its a nice time saving feature that feels like its not padding the game with wasted time, but you can still go through for those that want to.

When you start the game, you'll find a choice of casual mode or normal mode. Normal mode feels easy enough, but casual mode has random enemy battles less frequently and you regain health after each battle. Its good to have a choice for people just looking to plow through the game. The random battles are not painfully frequent like in old school Dragon Quest games. Its more like every 40 paces or so. You will find enemies in walls or thieves attack on over world bridges. There are tutorial books littered sparingly throughout maps and having a tutorial book seems odd instead of just having NPCs explain things to you if not have an extensive help feature in the menu.

There is little enemy variety in the game and you'll see the same enemies from area to area, which is a disappointment. A few enemies are reskins, which I'm fine with, I just wish they did different things. The combat feels pretty shallow and you can use a 'rush' (autobattle) for 99% of battles. The battles are turn based, where you select everything that your party will do on their turn of the battle ala old school JPRGs, then when everyone knows what they'll do a turn happens based on their speed. Quicker characters will take their turn first. It is as old school as possible straight down to map movement moving you an entire body length with each press of the left, right, up or down.

The skills in battle seem underwhelming if not almost useless except for certain circumstances. At least every character has their own skills so everyone feels unique. You'll gain more skills as you level up. You can even change characters on the fly with the party system. So if you have 3 dead party members, swap them out with living members. There are skills and items to revive people of course. With the excess amount of accessories, you'll be able to craft the character's stats and resistances to your preference. You'll have to chose different weapons based on stats, do you want this sword to make your character speedy at the cost of damage or have a heavy damager that is slower than enemies? It is a nice sense of freedom from typical armor and weapon upgrades. It adds something to replayability since you can customize your party so much.

One downfall if not exploit I have found that I can have 3 party members block and my main hero can destroy every boss. Some bosses throw waves of enemies at you before you get to battle them, which I suppose is a unique take on boss fights, but it could also be seen as useless fluff.

There is an Asian style to the game that makes it feel fresh, even if I suspect the graphics are from the Samurai DLC pack instead of custom. Even with an Asian style, the characters speak with modern words like 'dude' and 'cool.' I think the game is in on the joke and embellishes on it.

Book of Legends feels very dialog heavy, and offers some fun banter between characters when you search or find treasures, but the actual story is just far too dialog heavy for me and I found myself skipping through everything said. Even the NPCs have a good amount to say instead of just one line throwaway statements. It adds to the immersion even if I can't be bothered by the story when its just paragraphs of dialog.

You can save in most every settlement, but there is an autosave feature and your main hero can save and fully recharge his energy. Its nice to have just before a boss.

With all of that being said, are there better RPGs out there? Yes, but this stands out as being better than 99% of the RPG Maker games out there for its sense of exploration, freedom to do as you please and make your own party, customizations and all. I am a big fan of customization and freedom. Is it worth $15? Probably not. Maybe $5 hits the mark.

This isn't the worst RPG Maker game I've played, but It's not the best either. I hate to dump on indie game developers, but I really can't recommend this game.

Granted, I only played a few hours, so maybe it gets better, but in the time I played the fighting was pretty uninspired. I mostly found myself just fight-buttoning though the same troops of enemies again and again, and I didn't really have to deploy much strategy apart from "One of my moves can only be used with 4 or more enemies, so use that if there are 4 or more enemies."

I really don't care for the writing either. The dialogue between characters seems like a nonstop train of snarkiness that is trying to be playful and funny but I can't say I laughed at any of it. I am 27 and sort of jaded. I may have found it funnier when I was a teenager I suppose. I spent most of the game with two party members, and then when another was potentially going to join me, I had to choose between her and the one I already had. These characters were very cliched "young cute love interest" and "mature sexy woman love interest" tropes straight out of any cheesy harem anime.

When I first saw signs of the inevitable relationship building between the two charactres I had in my party, it felt extremely forced and stereotypical. All of a sudden the hardened ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ warrior reveals a deeper side through referencing his tough childhood. Of course.

The art is good, and the plot was at least interesting enough to keep me paying attention to it for the short time I played. The dialogue, characters, and combat are what ultimately made me give up on this game after just a few hours. Best of luck to the developer on future games, and I hope my rather harsh review has at least a little bit of helpful criticism.

I know that somebody put a lot of effort into this game and I really tried to get into it, but eventually the game got just so horribly unbalanced that I couldn't force myself to try to grind and try any further.

The story isn't very innovative and the main character is quite unlikeable. The fact that every time one of the characters makes a 'joke' the author had to add 'ahaha' at the end of the line really gets to you after a while. The dialog is lengthy and not well written. It's also quite repetitive and after some time you really have to force yourself to still pay attention to it.

It's a typical RPGMaker game in presentation, but I have to admit that the graphics and music are well chosen, The locations are again lengthy and exploring them grants you a lot of usable items, but sadly not enough equipment. Which brings me to my main complain about this RPG.

The game is unbalanced. Heavily unbalanced on multiple levels. The first 'dungeon' is far too easy and your character way overpowered. You continue and gather other characters and the game is still way too easy and that's not because I gained too many level early on. A level up in this RPG basically has no effect on your combat performance except when you get a new skill. The increase in HP and attack power are so minimal that it's hardly worth to grind at all. In terms that means that you have to rely on equipment to give you the needed boost to get better in combat. For a good amount of the game that doesn't matter much as the 'mob' fights are ridiculously underpowered and you won't have a problem at all, but in boss fights it shows that something isn't exactly working out. You can still push through those with a bit of tactic and luck, but it's starting to get really frustrating.

At some point the game forces you to play as a group of characters that are completely underpowered. Only one of them has magical abilities and they aren't very powerful. This is when the game grinds to a halt. You can't make them stronger by leveling up nor can you get better equipment. So every tougher fight is a pure gamble if you'll get through.

So far that's not too bad, but add to that one enemy that always attacks first, has a quite strong AOE spell that costs you about 50% of your HP and is nearly not hittable because it dodges every attack. I'm not kidding. In random encounters those enemies flee after a couple of rounds, but then you run into a forced encounter with three of them and they don't flee. I tried it five times, each time grinding a level for each character more and there's no way to get past them except for getting extremely lucky and hitting them with every attack.

I don't like not finishing a RPG, but this one is just so annoying to play that I won't try to push through. Don't waste 14 hours on this one like I did and get a better RPGMaker game instead.

Book of Legends is highly reminiscent of 16-bit jrpgs of the SNES era, which is certainly a point in its favour for fans of retro rpgs. The game features some really nicely detailed artwork, character portraits and profiles are especially well-done.

Battles play out in the expected manner typical of the genre, with combatants taking turns to attack each other, use skills, defend, etc. There are plenty of skills on offer for each of the characters, ensuring that combat doesn't become tiresome. Many skills take both your character's statistics and enemy numbers into account, allowing for a decent amount of strategising during combat. New skills are unlocked as your characters gain levels, providing new ways to overcome enemies. Encounters sometimes start with an ambush, or with you ambushing your foes, which mixes things up somewhat when you're fighting. You always have the option to run from battle as well if you don't fancy your chances against your adversaries. The enemy sprites are all quite detailed, with some quite elaborate designs in there too. Status elements, both positive and negative, element-based skills and weaknesses are all present and accounted for and as always, monsters drop both exp and gold when defeated. Equipment can be attached to five different slots per character, comprising of weapon, shield, helmet, armour and accessory respectively. I've yet to complete the game (and by all accounts it's a sizeable adventure) but what I played was well-balanced in terms of challenge and I never felt the need to level grind. The bosses represented a reasonable challenge but nothing insurmountable. The encounter rate is nicely balanced (with different rates for the game's two difficulty modes) and doesn't feel too frequent or intrusive as you explore various locations in the game.

There's good attention to detail in the environments, treasures are scattered throughout each area, encouraging players to venture off the beaten track. The tilesets that make up the game's locations are well-utilised to minimise repetition, with little touches such as animals being scattered throughout the many locales adding life to the world. Another thing that impressed me with the environments was the amount of scenery that be interacted with to elicit some type of comment or remark from your character, a little detail that is far too often overlooked, especially in modern titles. It really harks back to the glory days of the 16-bit rpgs and some of the habits players picked up during that generation are recognised and rewarded here. It's a very self-aware game and it uses that to subvert the player's expectations at several moments during the game - there's plenty of flavourful dialogue and choices, primarily from the main character, Jordan and it only gets better as additional characters join the party, there's some entertaining exchanges between party members, even early on in the game. Indeed, the entertaining ensemble is definitely one of the highlights here and In some ways it's quite reminiscent of the self-satire seen in the Disgaea series, though the script could use some editing here and there to give it a little extra polish before it approaches that level of finesse.

If you were a fan of 16-bit era rpgs and lament their absence in recent years, I'd expect that, like me, you'll find something to love here. It's good to see more titles like this finding a home on Steam.

First off, let's be clear that I can't recommend this game due to it's price, but I can recommend it at a price below 5$. The price is currently at 80% of Baldur's Gate, and the price is higher than several far better JRPGs.

Essentially, this game seems like a very high quality work of a high schooler, who put a lot of work into it. There is a story, many areas to discover, a variety of companions to join the party, and lots of optional sidequests.

The weakest point of the game is the intro. For the first hour, combat is trivial, boring, and unavoidable. Gamebalance also often relies on the player doing some things which the player can't know about - Didn't find some hidden party members? Combat will be easy until the next boss fight, then you're screwed. Didn't grind to buy that awesome sword before moving to the next continent? You'll now have to grind at least 30 minutes more to become strong enough to continue.
This will get better over time. Once there are ~6 party members all at level 20-30, combat becomes less trivial and the game doesn't try as hard to screw you for not findiong a hidden party member or item.

The second weakest point is the writing. The dialogues are okay, but not great. This is where the impression that the game was written by a high schooler comes from. Humor is attempted. The entire setting is not fleshed out and the story is simple. There is dialogue tough, which does at least make the party members somewhat likable.

The third weakest point is the combat system. Some stats make a huge difference, but the entire combat system is not documented, not even on the developer's forum. You have spells to create or cure status effects which are not explained. You have abilities that cannot be used in some fights. You have new weapons that increase the damage dealt by a factor of 10 or 20.

SUMMARY: The story is weak, the game takes a while before combat becomes non-trivial, and in the early game the game balance often depends on doing things "right" without having any clue what "right" is.

I really wanted to recommend this game. The skills and combat seem good, and the dialog isn't bad. Although as other have said, it seems every other line from the main character is sarcastic.

The main breaking point for me is the leveling. I was somehow able to beat the first boss, mainly due to the fact the main character has a skill which makes the first chapter a cake walk. But the next area, I got one shotted time and time again.

My main character is able to withstand any foe, but every supporting character I have just gets 1-2 shotted. I even tried grinding a bit, but after several hours? (it felt like that), I feel my characters still aren't there. The weapons and armor didn't seem to help much, and many items seem very expensive for the area.

I would recommend this game to someone who has a kid that can burn many hours on it, but as far as JRPGs go, I think your time is better spent elsewhere.
