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.

So far its alot of fun. The music is really well done and its easy to see that the devs have put their heart into making this game same as the other games from Aldorlea games. The great thing about these guys is that they put time and effort into making good rpgs. Alot of people may be turned off when they see its an rpg maker game but trust me if its made by Aldorlea games they have put alot of effort into it. Now we will get into the pros and cons.

Pro.
Excelent music and Ambience.
Decent gfx. it is an rpg maker game so your not going to get ff13 / COD level of gfx but still really good job on Aldorlea for puting time and effort into making it look as good as it does. The humor can be a bit of a pro and negative sometimes its funny and then other times it can be a bit childish but in general I like it.

Con.
It is made with rpg maker so options are very limited music only has a yes or no so you cant turn up or down the volume in game. But its easy enough to do that with your sound mixer.

In the end I can say most games made by these guys are decent to very good from what ive seen. They care about the product they put out the devs seem very friendly. If you would like to see more check out the videos below I have a couple first impresion reviews up on youtube and will add more later. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNcVGXMP6hA and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oahC84Ui5KQ

I wanted to like this game. I REALLY did. but 20 minutes in and I was completely disappointed not just with the experience the game was trying to provide, but with EVERYTHING. Starting off with one of the minor characters saying "(dies)", moving on to the main character being named "Random" (Seriously? "Random"? Naming your dog "Fluffy" is more creative) to even the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t with the inns. The items are expensive enough already, but then to have the inns charge half of your current amount just makes the problem so much worse.

The story was bull, Random's motivation for looking for the elf chick right at the start comes off as stupid at best and xenophobic ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥-ry at worst. Maybe I'm reading too much into that, but that's how it came off to me, personally. Add in a VERY generic and boring story, a just as weak battle-system exacerbated by very VERY low money drops, and I quit 20 minutes in.

The absolute worst thing you can do in a game is make somebody so bored that they not only ask "When does this get fun?" but bore them into quitting and swearing never to play the game again. I'm not kidding when I say that I don't even want to get the cards for this game, because it would mean having to keep it going for over two hours. And really, that's two hours I could spend playing just about any other game I own and having a better time. Approach with high caution if you wish, but prepare yourself for a lot of disappointment. I came into this game with low expectations, and this game failed to meet even THAT high.
