Do you remember the olden days of Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest and what not ? This game looks like it would be the same, but do not be deceived, it is not. I tried to give it a chance, but the dreadful characters, the nonsensical way of doing things, the constant "poisoned/tired" cycle, the fact that you do not heal up when levelling up (wasn't that a thing once ?) and the way your characters express emotions in conversations (*chuckles* ? Could you not just have drawn a different portrait to show the emotional state of the one talking ? And while I am mentioning portraits..why do they look so weird ?) are quite off-putting.

I've spent 3 hours in the game and this is what I experienced story-wise in wall of text form :

Intro : Some God gets summoned to the home of a witch. She tells him that there are 3 stars and he should suck out their bodily powers. The God is not convinced, but the witch throws out some valid arguments and he realizes, that sucking their bodily powers out is probably a good thing to do. He then kills the witch, but *chuckles* had forgotten to ask the witch who the stars were. That's why he's gonna create some sort of trap to catch them. End of Intro.

You are a guy with a serious attitude problem and have to bring some stuff to your parents. You meet an elven girl in front of your parents house, which leads to a conversation in which you express your dislike for her for no particular reason.
She then vanishes, you deliver the goods and decide to go look for her. You find her in a bathing suit and argue with her some more. You get attacked by the pond spirit. The elven girl helps you defeat the evil pond queen, which apparently was mad, because you saw the elven girl in her bathing suit. The elven girl vanishes again. You are going home.
Your chameleon pet is missing and you're off to find it. You do find it and fight elves,who were apparently also mad that you saw the elven girl in her bathing suit. The elven girl helps you out and vanishes after some more arguing, but she is telling you to meet her in some cave.
You now know that she is your neighbour or something and you ask people where that cave is. You go to that cave. You meet her in the cave in a bathing suit, you argue with her. You fight a dragon with her. She vanishes again after more arguing.
You learn about some sort of trial to get enrolled in some sort of magical school for which you need a partner. You are called to visit your parents, who make you team up with the elven girl for that said trial. You both argue.
You are off to the trial, flipping lots of switches and meeting a living flame, which constantly says PEEKABOO. You kill a ghost. You let the girl touch the crystal, because your guy does not like pink. You finish the trial.
You have to duel 2 other guys to win the trial for good. You are the winner.
You are supposed to be taken on some sort of convoy to the school town, but your hero decides that he'd rather walk there on foot all by himself for no particular reason. You and the elf argue.
You are off to walk to the town, being pursued by the guards who were gonna escort you to the town, which you then proceed to kill. You narrowly escape, despite having killed them (at least I did, since they kept bumping into me over and over in an endless cycle of combat until they were gone for good) and the girl breaks her leg. You argue.
You break into a witch hut and acquire something to help the girl's leg. You are being surprised by the witch, who is understandibly unhappy that someone broke into her hut. You kill the witch with no remorse. You help the girl out and there's more stupid banter.

I quit the game.

Now if any of that tickled your fancy, then go ahead, you will probably have fun in a grindy, weird way just like I put up with it for a while. But eventually you will realize, that matters do not seem to improve at all and you begin to question, why you're not playing one of your other 100 games instead. Or even one of the old SNES rpgs. So many choices, why would you go for this ? WHY ?

i have no idea if the rest of the game is good, but it does not mater, even in the beginning area there is so much missable and random bs that you would have to buy their guide to know about or be completely screwed over, oh hey the weapon shop sells these badass elemental swords, i better go save up some money and come back and buy them at 900 gold apeice, hey where are the swords? i have the money now... nope guess what the guy only offers it once, EVER guess you should have already grinded that gold scorpion for 35 gold a battle for 8 hours before you talked to me and randomly triggered this event, your screwed now,

do not support this game or any other game by this developer. they clearly do not know what they are doing.

I'm really on the fence about 3 Stars of Destiny. For all the interesting gameplay mechanics it has and the general enjoyment of other games from RPG developer Aldorlea Games, there are enough problems to warrant a skip for anyone looking to try out yet another fantasy-based RPG.

We all know the problems with RPGMaker. That software has allowed anyone with a will and a few hours to spare the ability to pop out a carbon-copy clone and put it on Steam, to the detriment of the genre as a whole. While I generally enjoy (and even love) Aldorlea's output, 3 Stars definitely ranks as one of the lowest in terms of enjoyment-to-grinding and the storyline.

It's not actually mentioned anywhere on the store page, but the game is a prequel to the Laxius Power/Laxius Force series, which were the first games released by Aldorlea back in the early 2000s. Those games had the same three characters, but were generally a lot more mature in their storytelling (for instance, characters swear, have sex, get married and lose their loved ones), even if they're incredibly dated because of the early RPGMaker graphics/blocky character models.

3 Stars takes place years before the series, and has a god named Ozur kill a witch so he can find 3 prophecized leaders because of "reasons". At the same time, protagonist Random Pendragon sets out from his home on an adventure and meets Sarah (an elf) and Luciana (a enchantress), who learn about Ozur's plot and work to stop him before he can do any more damage to the world.

Those relationships and camaraderie found in the Laxius games doesn't translate to this prequel. Random and Sarah spend the majority of the game pointlessly bickering and sniping at each other, while Luciana just sticks around seemingly to keep things from escalating further. There isn't a whole lot of variety to the characters you meet, and the plot itself feels less like a coherent story and more a series of random setpieces on the way to the final showdown.

The biggest problem I faced is twofold. For one thing, Aldorlea's RPGs have a lot of items and useful gear that are easily missed due to being hidden in secret rooms (see the Millennium series for a greater example of this), and if you don't have the requisite guide, you're pretty much out of luck. Secondly, there is no in-game map to track where you are or where you're going, and considering there are points where you have to backtrack long distances to complete a quest (and the level design is linear), it can become extremely frustrating to figure out where you're supposed to go. That latter point nearly put me off the game for good.

However, I never actually finished the game. I got to a point just before the final battle where I was stuck in an area with few to no supplies, facing enemies who had a major difficulty spike and were wrecking my party easily. Faced with this problem, I quit the game and never went back.

That's not to say it's all bad, though. The battles are generally engaging and varied (despite an overreliance on enemies dropping status conditions on the party), there are a lot of interesting gameplay mechanics like the bond with your other party members strengthening depending on how long they stay in the active group, and there are some amusing setpieces during the late game.

In retrospect, however, I don't see a lot of people really getting invested in this one as much as some of Aldorlea's other games (and this is coming from someone who put 27 hours into this game).

3 Stars of Destiny exists more as unrealized potential than an enjoyable prequel. You'd be better off trying the Millennium series for this kind of RPG action.

3 Stars of Destiny is in a very real sense the Traditional RPG. The three main characters are Random, Sarah, and Luciana the Mage, who are destined for a great power. Fate brings them together, as an Evil God, Ozur attempts to trap the hero's and steal their power. As is usual with RPG's, the game offers a mixture of random battle encounters, as well as an environment rich for exploration. There is a short interactive tutorial to help you get adjusted to the game and the learning curve is very low. I found the storyline to be very interesting, the characters to be funny and there were many sidequests in addition to the main quests, which were fun to do. 3 Stars of Destiny is much more of an old school RPG, and reminded me of my days playing on the SNES. It was worth picking up.

So far, I'm loving this. If you played the old Laxius Power games, you'll really enjoy finally getting the full back-story of how the team came together in the first place. It's interesting seeing Random and Sarah slowly come together to become the incredible couple they already were by the time we met them in the Laxius games.
