Not a whole lot to say, I've gotten 9 hours into it . I've enjoyed what I've played story wise so far, battle system is nice. I've just found myself getting really bored with it due to the constant grinding. It is one of those deals in which you get more people than you can have in a party, certain parts of the game you have to run more than 1 party which means way more than the normal grinding. Quick summary-
Pros - Good story, I enjoyed the writing with the main character being an ♥♥♥, but there is more to him.
- Seemed like a good sized world.
- Battle system easy to pick up and strategize with.
Cons - Too grindy, I'm guessing to give it more playtime? I am level 35 with 2 parties worth and I'm kind of stuck.
- This makes the grinding worse, not a lot of weapons to buy, they are pricy, after running a dung. I could buy 1 weapon in next area. Shops with gear is far and between and your weapon goes to crap quick, limited on going back to old areas if you couldn't afford the gear the first time through.

Over all, meh. If you get it on sale, I suppose it is alright. I probably won't play it anymore because I'm tired of grinding for multiple parties and that takes you out of the story when it is this much.

When I first started playing this game my goal was to get a few achievements. Easy perfect game right there so I went with it. But wow.. What an emotional experience. It's not one of those other games you play and then just forget about them. You might think back to this game and relate to it everyday. Simply amazing it's worth every penny, loved the story :)

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.

Aldorlea Games è una software house che ha da sempre reso molto chiaro il suo orizzonte: omaggiare i vecchi fasti del J-RPG stile SNES riproponendone una personalissima interpretazione “moderna”. Attiva sin dal 2008, ha sviluppato una buona quantità di giochi tra i quali vale la pena citare le saghe di Laxius Force e Millennium. Tutti i suoi prodotti condividono una tensione atta a bilanciare vecchi elementi di gameplay con alcune meccaniche più fresche, il tutto con l’aiuto di RPG Maker e una discreta esperienza nel settore. The Book of Legends è una delle ultime incarnazioni -il gioco è del 2012 ma arriva solo ora su Steam- di questa vera e propria mission. Ed è per questo che, dei titoli di Aldorlea, va a condividere i grandi pregi ma anche gli indiscutibili difetti.

I punti di forza di questo gioco sono: la trama, la ricchezza dell'interazione dei personaggi giocanti sia tra di loro sia con gli NPC sia con gli elementi del fondale, e, non ultimo, il carattere 'politically NOT correct' del protagonista principale, che ci divertirà non poco. Infatti Jordan, così si chiama il protagonista principale, è veramente da prendere a schiaffi, e passa il tempo di tutta l'avventura a sbeffeggiare chiunque gli capiti a tiro: quindi non proprio un esempio dell'eroe gentile e senza macchia di tanti nobili RPG. Inoltre il gioco nasconde molte sorprese da scoprire, che vanno a beneficio della sua rigiocabità. Il combattimento non è molto vario, ed in verità c'è una scarsezza di incantesimi. La colonna sonora è senza infamia, e la grafica è naturalmente quella scarna messa a disposizione dal tool di sviluppo del gioco, cioè non so quale versione del RPG Maker. La carne a cuocere è parecchia, ed io ci ho giocato per più di 60 ore. Consigliato.

Un altro gran titolo di Aldorlea Games! Non è il solito giochino schifido della durata di 2 ore fatto con RPG Maker, fidatevi. Ma non è nemmeno per tutti. È fondamentale comprendere i tantissimi dialoghi, sia per non annoiarsi che per completare le quest più complesse.
Non è adatto ai giocatori casual, per quanto vi sia una modalità "casual", perché i combattimenti piano piano diventano sempre più tosti ed è necessario scegliere l'equip adatto oltre ai compagni adatti. Se pensate di farvi un giro saltando tutti i dialoghi e clickando a casaccio, non supererete nemmeno i primi capitoli :)
Non badate alle mie ore di gioco, l'avevo già apprezzato prima della pubblicazione su Steam. Il titolo è lunghissimo (infinito se vi piace fare il 100%) e va giocato con pazienza per essere apprezzato.

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.
