I've personally enjoyed my time with this game and think it's a good example of a RPG Maker title, but ... it's definitely not worth full price. It's relatively easy to get it at -90%, and then the price is really reasonable. There are better games out there, but this one is worth checking out if you're looking for something cheap and decent.

Gave it a spin due to being 90% off... don't really play RPG maker games, now I see why. The initial character is rather bland and the chicken is a little silly. Made it hard to take it seriously. Combat seems ultra simple. (Granted only 45 minutes in but I don't plan on playing more of it).

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.

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.

Gotta Give Credit Where Due.
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.

The Book of Legends hat einen guten Ansatz, aber das war's leider auch. Die Dungeons sind groß, aber langweilig und unspektakulär aufgebaut, Truhen enthalten zu gefühlt 90% immer wieder die gleichen Gegenstände, wodurch ich irgendwann keine Lust mehr hatte, sie überhaupt noch zu öffnen.

Gleiches trifft auf die Städte zu. Was bringt es mir, wenn die Hauptstadt zwar riesig, aber dann nur mit belanglosen NPC-Dialogen, einem Shop und EINER Quest gefüllt ist, die ich erstmal überhaupt finden muss? Das ist nichts als billige Spielzeitstreckung.

Stichwort Dialoge, die sind für mich so ziemlich das einzig Positive am Spiel. Sie lesen sich recht flüssig, mal passt der Humor, mal (und leider häufiger) wirkt es so, als hätte man in die Zeile jetzt UNBEDINGT noch 'nen Witz pressen müssen..

Noch ein Wort zum Balancing / Kampfsystem: Ich habe zwar erst gut 6 Stunden gespielt, aber in der Stärke der Gegner war kein vernünftiges Muster zu erkennen. Meist schwach und anspruchslos, und dann löscht plötzlich eine Gegnergruppe meine ganze Party aus. Bis auf Jordan, der im Gegensatz zu den anderen bislang total übermächtig wirkt, "toller Schwertkämpfer" hin oder her. Die beiden tierischen Begleiter dagegen, Kuh und Bär, sind so gut wie nutzlos, sie halten nichts aus und sterben meist nach jedem Spezialangriff, den Jordan mit 20 Schaden wegsteckt. Nur ein Beispiel um zu verdeutlichen, dass das Balancing in The Book of Legends 'ne mittlere Katastrophe ist.
Das Kampfsystem verhält sich dementsprechend, 85% aller Kämpfe habe ich automatisch durchlaufen lassen, manchmal sogar Bosse.


Alles in allem ist The Book of Legends für mich ein Paradebeispiel dafür, wie miserabel ein RPG Maker-Spiel trotz grundsätzlich solider Technik (Mapping, Dialoge etc.) sein kann. Das Spiel macht schon in den ersten paar Stunden so ziemlich alles falsch, was man sich als jRPG-Fan erhoffen könnte. Dafür 15 Euro zu verlangen ist schon fast dreist, ich habe kostenlose Maker-Titel gespielt, die hundert Mal besser waren als das hier.

Großartiges Spiel! Anfangs denkt man noch "Jaaa fängt ja wie jedes 2. RPG an...", was ja nicht zwingend was Schlechtes sein muss! Aber nach und nach wird das Spiel immer besser und man will gar nicht mehr aufhören zu spielen! Die Characktere sind liebevoll gestaltet und man muss einfach jeden Einzelnen mögen.
Ich habe es vorhin durchgespielt und ich muss sagen, dass die Story mich umgehauen hat.
Außerdem hat man zwischendurch immer mal verschiedene Entscheidungen, die man treffen muss und deswegen hat es auch einen großen Wiederspielwert.
Das ist das erste Spiel, dass ich von Aldorlea Games gespielt habe und es wird definitiv nicht das Letzte sein!
Kauft es euch, wenn ihr auf coole Characktere, eine (teilweise) fiese Story, aber trotzdem humorvolle Gespräche steht!

Story? Hmm was für ne Story? Ich weiß bis jetzt immer noch nicht worum es überhaupt geht.
Dunegons? Puuhhh gibt es ne Menge. Allerdings sind diese so verwinkelt das man nach der 2. Abbiegung nicht mehr weiß wo man eigentlich ist (da nach jeder Kreuzung 2 neue Wege erscheinen.
Charaktere? Gibt es viele. Aber....nicht wie in anderen RPGs gibt es hier Kühe, Hühner, Wölfe, Bären, Tiger -.-

Nicht mal für den niedrigen Preis würde ich es empfehlen. Selbst wenn man RPG Fan ist sollte man davon abstand nehmen.

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.
