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 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.

The Book of Legends is classic JRPG set in 2D environment made by RPGMaker.

Gameplay is quite interesting, with good battle and inventory system beginers will find it very easy to start.
Storyline and interaction are very good, it stands up from rest of RPGMaker games, here we can see lot of time and effort are put in this game.
Only thing I found annoying in early playing are often ambush events since Im not grinding type.
You can play it with mouse, keyboard or even with controller, I played with mouse only, sit back relax and clicky clicky, it has good casual feeling.

Nothing much to say about graphic, it is ok 2D, decent textures and models... hell it was made with RPGMaker.

As for sound it has nice music that really flows with gameplay.

Good rpg/jrpg game, great for beginers of this genre, but will also bring much enjoyment to experienced players.
Since it is tagged 14,99 I found it very pricey for this type of game.
Good thing that it has been bundled more then once, so I recommend buying it from bundle or on big discount.
