Everybody keeps telling Marine it's impossible and she'll end up swatted like a fly.
But what do YOU think?

Introduction
Millennium - A New Hope a beautiful RPG Maker game. The story follows Marine a girl how refuses to accept her fate as a peasant. She decides to fight back and challenge Lords of Mystrock. There is not much to say about the game elements in Millennium - A New Hope, all of the games mechanics/elements are all great and solid. This is a basic stand JRPG, there is not really any catches or massive differences. The only thing that I didn’t really care for in this game is the fact that the NPCs are very bland and generic. If you are a big fan of the typical old-school JRPGs Millennium - A New Hope is a game for you.
Pros

  • Well-made RPG/JRPG
  • Great price
  • Awesome assets
  • Controller support
  • Tons of content for the price
  • Awesome music
  • Interesting story



Cons

  • NPCs feel very generic
  • Lots of dialogue seems unnecessary
  • Typical RPG Maker game
  • Limited graphics option


Conclusion

Millennium - A New Hope is a beautiful old school JRPG that has the typical gameplay that everyone loves. The NPCs dialogue is very bland and generic, but the story is very interesting and will pull you in. The best part of Millennium - A New Hope is the fact that this game is so cheap. It’s a great value and I would highly recommend picking up Millennium - A New Hope, especially if you enjoy old school JRPGs.

Overall, I really enjoyed Millennium - A New Hope. It's a solid RPG with a good blend of challenge, interesting characters, story, secrets, large dungeons and a bit of humor. If you hate RPG Maker games, you won't like it no matter what I write here, so keep that in mind. For the rest of you, I'd say there's a lot to like in Millennium.

The game itself is a 5 part series, so keep that in mind when buying it. If you're thinking about the Millennium series, you should start with this one (obviously). You're then allowed to export your characters (with their inventories) to the next game after beating it. There's at least 20 hours of gameplay here, I think I finished it in hard mode at about 25 hours. I normally never play games on hard mode, but I did with Millennium and I enjoyed the challenge and extra achievements. There are a number of interesting and challenging achievements for this game. There are 24 secret rooms scattered throughout the world, 40 quests (both main and sidequests), and a lot of hidden things.

Combat is fun and challenging. The boss fights are pretty epic and there are optional tough "animal kings" for you to fight as an extra challenge after beating the main boss. Level design is well executed. The secret rooms are challenging to find and some of the dungons are HUGE with lots to explore. Luckily, there is an option to have arrows occasionally point you in the right direction if you wish. Unlike some other Aldorlea RPGs, you get the option to have enemies visible on the map instead of random encounter pop-ups after so many steps. The plot is solid, if not ground breaking and keeps you on track. I would say the plot speeds up and becomes more complex in M2. The music was enjoyable as well.

I only have a few complaints that are pretty minor. Early in the game, gold is pretty rare! You'll need to be a bit careful with your purchases. The economy is tight so don't expect to buy 99 of every healing item, etc. My only other complaint is that there is an achievement for beating 30 quests with the last character you recruit for your party. In order to get this achievement, you need to actively avoid completing any quests for most of the game and then come back to them after beating the main boss. This is a bit anticlimactic. If you don't worry about this achievement, it's not a problem, however. Other than that, it's an excellent RPG that's well worth your time. If you're on the fence about this game, there's a free demo from Aldorlea's website that lets you play the full game for an hour to see if you like it.
I hope this review gets you excited to try the Millennium saga!

Fun and challenging RPGMaker (JRPG) game.

My major complaint is that there is no steam overlay support (can't take a screenshot, no steam notifications when I get a msg, etc.), the alt to this is playing it in window mode, which is locked at a really low res (640x480?).

That being said I picked up the rest of the series in bundles or steam sale and look fwd to playing them.

This game goes back to the good-old days of 16-bit RPGs. If you like that old style of gameplay and graphics you'll feel right at home. If you're expecting a modern game, you might look somewhere else. As for how it compares to the SNES RPG classics? I'd say it's surely no Final Fantasy VI or Chrono Trigger. Though it holds itself pretty good compared to the likes of Breath of Fire (1), Lufia (1) and Dragon Quest V. If you like those games, surely give Millennium a chance!

Strong points of this RPG:
- Great environment design. Large dungeons and interesting overworld, towns etc
- So many secrets to be found! Go exploring like in the good old days!
- This game was made with heart, and it shows!

Millenium is very nice game if you enjoy old schooll rpgs. There is lot to discover and option to turn on visible encounters so you can avoid most battles if you want. Grinding is not requred to complete the game even in hard mode so most of the gameplay is discovering new stuff.

Start of the game is little slow as you control only one character and money is very tight. Later on you will get new members. By then the game really starts to pick up. You can find some fantactical locations in dungeons, most music tracks are very good and banter between team members can be pretty funny.

There is lots of optional stuff like secred rooms and sidequests. The main quest is a bit short as this is only a first part of the series. I will propably get next one in the series once there is a sale. You can import your save file to the next game so there is incentive to find everything.

Very solid RPGmaker game 7/10.
