Praise for Millennium 3

The game received accolades from the italian website The Shelter Network.
http://theshelternetwork.com/millennium-3-cry-wolf/

According to the website's EIC, here is what the reviewer said about it:

Even if Millennium 3 could appear as a filler chapter, I enjoyed a lot the development of the game. The design of the environments are great and I would say that they are the best of every single game of Aldorlea I had the pleasure to play.
Also, even dialogues are more mature, as the relations among the characters.
Like in the previous chapters, Millennium is a wonderful tribute to the 16-bit era, and in this is absolutely one of the best saga.

Backstory


Marine is young - too young to endeavor great things.
But Marine is a fighter and she refuses to accept fate.
Because her fate is to be a peasant and probably die young - a disease, or a predator, whatever, you always die of something in the murky lands of Myst.

So when her father is critically injured, Marine decides to fight back and take over the crusade he can no longer pursue.
Which crusade? To challenge the feared Lords of Mystrock, the rich megalopolis of Myst, and defeat them in a traditional showdown that decides the rulers of the world.
Everybody keeps telling Marine it's impossible and she'll end up swatted like a fly.
But what do YOU think?

Днище, днище, днище!!!
Попалась случайно на gabestore.
Даже карточки с неё получить не удалость. Что бы начать играть нужно пройти кучу диалогов нажатием enter.
НО ВНИМАНИЕ - нажатие регистрируется только после нажатия alt+enter, что соответствует переводу игры из полноэкранного режима в оконный и обратно. В общем даже БЕСПЛАТНО НЕ ПОРТИТЕ СЕБЕ НЕРВЫ!

Millenium isn't a bad game, but with all the RPG-maker games out there, why settle for middle-rate RPGs ?
The gameplay is very classical and won't be a surprise. The settings are nice and detailed but there is a lot of stock RPG-Maker characters in the background. The drawings of the main characters are nice but aren't consistent with their 2D-sprite (the main character wears a kimono in combat and a sleeveless dress out of combat).
There is a lot to customize (difficulty, randomness of the encounters, guiding arrows) and this is cool.
Now, what prevented me to finish this game ? First and foremost, the scenario. It's just incredibly stupid, with caricatural characters and cheesy lines. What's the main motivation of the heroine ? She saw squirrels helping each others... I swear I'm not making this up.
And I hope you're not allergic to giggles because you'll see a lot of them.
Here's an example :
- This forest looks so scary. We should head back home.
- Come on. You're aguy, you shouldn't be afraid. *giggle*
Yes it's that bad.

I could have overlooked this (with gritted teeth), but the dungeons are also far too long. And the numerous quests ? Fetch quests that have nothing to do with anything (find a cute dress for a random girl, find 10 grapes for a random guy...).
In the end, I see what people could like in this game. But it clearly isn't my style.

A pretty good game so far. I played in the easiest mode available and followed the green arrows all the time (great idea btw), so I think I made a fast progress in a short time. Interesting story and good artworks help to get sucked in the game. Review will be updated later if needed.

I played the non-Steam version of Millennium for the first time almost five years ago, and I've been hooked since then. The combination of a strong story, well written characters and addicting gameplay grew quickly on me.

Thanks to the different difficulties, visible / invisible monsters option and guiding arrows the game is well accessible to beginners. The in-game tutorial helps, too. Actually, this is probably one of the biggest strength of these games - no complicated installation, no shortcuts learning, you just start it and play immediately. At the same time, it offers quite a lot of challenge. The battles are classical, i.e. turn-based. But since action order is affected by characters' stats and these changes with difficulty, the battles play quite differently in different modes. In the Hard mode, you really need to know what you are doing and to use spells and equipment to your advantage. Usually, the stuff found in secret rooms and optional areas is very handy.
Overall, the tuning is very good and the game rewards you well for knowledge and exploration. If you feel a need for "grinding" you are doing something wrong. Plus, levels and money only transfer to Millennium 2 up to a certain limit, so the game doesn't force you to spend too much time levelling.

Speaking of exploration, there are many well hidden secret rooms and some other special things to find. Quests are various, some of them are even "chained", i.e. missing the first one means missing all the subsequent quests. Some players will probably find it too "hardcore", but I like the challenge. Maps are well thought out, with lot of optional areas and stuff to find. Once again, exploration pays off in Millennium.
Another important part of the gameplay is jumping. In some parts the game plays a bit like a platformer and you can jump over rocks, chasms and so on. With a special equipment you can even reach otherwise inaccessible areas and that's where the real fun begins.

Characters are well written and lifelike, with Marine "stealing the show". She's just so passionate and stuborn. Quite the opposite of Benoit, which ensures quite a few hilarious dialogues. Visuals and music are also of high standards. Especially the artworks are beatiful. To sum it up - I certainly recommend Millennium. It's a great game, and it's also the first part of great series. In other words, a good game to start with...

If you're a fan of old school RPGs you're going to love this game. I'm having a lot of fun just simply exploring the areas and making sure I've collected all the items/chests. The sidequests are fun, the graphics and artwork are nice, and being able to mess with the difficulty is an awesome feature. Well worth the $6 purchase.

I first came across Millennium - A New Hope back in 2009 when i read an insteresting review on Gamezebo.
I decided to try it and it didn't let me down.
You play as Marine, a young girl, that after a tragedy hit her family, decides to challenge the aristocracy of Mystrock and bring the change everybody in Myst needs.
The game is a turn based RPG that features invisible or visible enemies, mouse control and different difficulty levels. Also, animal kings ( they drop rare goodies), secret rooms, many side quests and interesting battle strategies.
If you want to play a fun game and enjoy it, Millennium is one of them.

There are three distinctive things about this RPG- 1: Secrets. A multitude of secrets, everywhere. Secret pathways, secret rooms, secret bosses, just a ton of hidden goodies and loot that reward meticulous exploration. 2: Customization. The options really change the pacing and difficulty. Depending on your choices it can be grindier, harder, and more labyrinthine or lighter on battles, easier, and more guided. I would still recommend putting on the guiding arrows option though since it's pretty easy to get lost. 3: Old-school approach to challenge. Playing on medium, the game still felt like an old Dragon Quest title. Even after selling a lot of loot, gold is precious and choosing wisely on what to buy is important. Characters are not overpowered in their abilities and often seem evenly matched to the current level of enemies (assuming you don't grind or redeem stat-boosting points all the time)

Toward about the last 1/4 of the game I made the monumentally bad (but far more interesting) choice of not preparing for the worst and then venturing out into what ended up being one of the most harrowing and hectic forays I've had in years. Toward the end I had almost completely run out of a stockpile of items, healing points and shops were dangerously few and far between or straight up inaccessible, endless droves of enemies and bosses ahead, and having to make that decision of either going back or making a leap of faith through one dungeon after another in rapid succession. I highly recommend buying as many restorative items as you can and keeping multiple saves since this game gets very hectic toward the end. The mostly generic environments even become more unpredictable and cleverly crafted at that point to match the increasing madness of that last quarter.

It was exciting but on the other hand, I can see why most games these days would not challenge the player at this level. I can easily imagine some gamers making unwise decisions along the way and not being able to move forward after a certain point.

Some other things of note/to sum it up-
- The plot didn't wow me but the characters are often amusing, I'm particularly fond of Jeanne who is not only amazing in battle but has many witty things to say along the course of the story. It would've been good to have more summonable characters like her who actively take part in the story and have such powerful abilities. I would have liked to see more character interactions and events and more script in general. As far as the art assets go they're a bit underwhelming/simplistic and the main game graphics look like a cross between NES-SNES graphics with cleaner edges. I really like the character designs but wish the larger character portraits were more utilized in the story scenes and that there were a larger variety of poses/expressions for them, this would do wonders for the effectiveness of character interactions during cut-scenes.
- 50+ Steam achievements + cards. Just bonuses but it's always nice to see devs make use of the extra features Steam provides.
- Decently lengthy game, very many quests, fully interactive world map. Overall, recommended.

Nicely done game with a well written story. May me wish episode 1 didn't stop where it when it got more interesting. Plus has very good options on showing where enemies more or leave them invisible. Appreciate the arrows showing where to go letting exploring be a lot more easier knowing which way to go you can leave to last instead of running right where you need to go. I do like that. If anything can't wait for episode 2 to show up on Steam

The game was very good, it has a well detailed story and the charecters develop more through out the story giving a feeling of closeness towards them. You go on an adventure in this RPG and live your life you the fullest, will you be able to make the world a better place or will the hero's fall short? I guess we will never know as I am typing this from beyond the grave as the stupid ♥♥♥♥ing poison affect makes the screen flash red every step you take, me being almost brought in by this game went blind, collasped on the floor, choked on my on tounge and ♥♥♥♥ my pants. (Please remove the red flashing, my eyes really hurt from it but other than that great game.)

This game must have done well as a high school project. Based on the writing and overload of anime/rpg tropes I assume that's what it was made for. I don't know why there are at least 5 of these Millennium games out there, but I think I have a pretty good idea why only one made it to Steam, and I'm quite surprised that it did.

This review is technically incomplete, because I haven't finished the game. Everything could change, but I doubt that I'm going to get there. I've been playing for 12 hours and have only obtained 4 out of 5 main characters. That's not a measure of judgement in itself, but I am bored enough to say that I probably won't play much more. Nothing is compelling me to play more.

Scale: 1=despised 2=negative 3=could go either way 4=positive 5=loved

Game design: 4/5 As an RPG, this game does well in it's mechanics. It's got some interesting methods to power up your characters and lots of variety for weapons and enemies. The game play itself is actually quite commendable. ... Except for the random jumping portions and other unseen elements, but you can't win them all.

Tone: 1/5 Here's the clincher for me. This game is more of a first time fan fiction to JRPGs. All these comments towards the immaturity of the writing of the game is because nothing happens for any reason. Or at least for any understandable reason. What's the conflict? Big kindgom won't help struggling country side and wants them all to starve to death. Solution? Peasant girl is moved by squirrels helping each other and think that humans need to act more like squirrels (?). Every one is sure to help each other and get along if only she can become leader of the kingdom in its next election. The twist? Democracy has failed! The election is rigged. Plus no one would want to vote for her anyway, but that's not really addressed. Luckily the land has an anciet tradition for such times: "Martial Law". When elections don't go the way you want, find a posse and beat the ♥♥♥♥ out of people until they listen. If the game was trying to be ironic this would be great, but the sad music and dry story telling tell me it's trying to be heartfelt and inspiring.

Personal skew: 4/5 So the story sucks, does this ruin the game? Not for everyone, sure, but the story is a major part of JRPG's and is especially important to this reviewer. What made me stop playing the game is the inane dialogue that happens every scene. I'm tired of clicking through a dozen text bubbles filled with 1 dimensional character banter complete with *chuckles* and *looks away sadly* remarks everytime a task is finished or started. The characters aren't characters, they are tropes: ignorant, carefree, stubborn leader; sarcastic sidekick; cowardly tagalong; etc. and nothing in the miles of dialogue actually develops character or gives motivation. I only know that the characters have these personalities because the other characters say so. The cowardly tagalong seems quite reasonable to me. I was suprised to learn that the main character was "energetic" and carefree until she got sidekicks that obsessed about her every idea and action. Even the quests that every new character demands develop nothing for the characters or story.

Some people do like this game, and that's fine. Hardcore fans are probably more geared toward gameplay. Newbies probably appreciate the warm and simple storyline. Maybe something changes later that will actually grip me to want to progress, but I don't want to risk another 10 hours on such a low possibility.

These comments are based on my playthrough of the game before the Steam version became available.

Game 1 of Aldorlea's outstanding 5 part Millennium series is definitely an "old school" rpg ---- and what a pleasure that is, as this beautiful game with its fantastic story proves over and over. This is one that fans of this sort of game absolutely must play, and if you happen to be unfamiliar with this type of game (or Aldorlea's games), it would be a great introduction to a particular style of rpg (Aldorlea's) that is unmatched.

Lots of choices get you going and capture your interest immediately. You can play at virtually any level of difficulty (with/without tutorial, with/without directional arrows, visible/invisible enemies, etc. ---- you choose how to play). Then just let the flow of the story take you along on a ride that is exciting, fun, and captivating. One of those "just one moe thing" types for sure.

The characters, the exploration, the side quests, and the treasures to find are all nicely combined to hold your interest throughout the game. And now, with 52 Steam achievements, that means another playthrough for me.

It's a great first game in a magnificent series, and I can't wait for the rest of them to arrive on Steam. Highest recommendation.

I can't tell the difference between what's a secret path and what's a legitimate map glitch. The music, which is already pretty bland, has managed to not trigger during scene transitions three times now. And I managed to nod off during a pointlessly labyrinthine dungeon looking for grapes.

I guess as an RPG, it does what it says on the tin, but it's a very (and that very has 20 syllables in it) paint by numbers one. There's not a lot of charm to be had in the time I've spent with it. And it's so hilariously boring. If you've ever played an RPG that tasked a simple youngster with an epic quest, you've already played a better version of this.

And for god's sakes, there's already four sequels. So I'm not expecting any sort of satisfying conclusion to this game.

My impuse buy gamble paid off this time!

Its a akin to some of the older snes rpgs but without the constant grind. Plus playing til 2am is a surefire gaming seal of approval by my standards. Your inner collector will be compelled to find orbs everywhere.

Recommending this is kind of a mixed bag. You're gonna love it or hate it. The graphics are decent, for the type of game. The sound isnt bad, but it isnt great. You'll tire of it pretty quick, but those of us that played the FF I-V series got got tired of that sound pretty quick, too. Also, the music is repetitive, quickly. The game responds better with the keyboard, you have better control of the characters than you do with the mouse. So who's gonna like it: The people that played old school, top down, 2d RPG's. Like Ultima, Dragon Warrior, or Final Fantasy (before Sony got a hold of it). Menu driven stats, items and equipment.

Who's not gonna like it: Anyone that doesn't like the RPGmaker genre of games. Those that didn't like any of the above mentioned games, JRPG's or those that cringe at the idea of devoting 30+ hrs to a video game. So, yeah, there you have it.

This is a nice, solid RPG. The game world has a lot of nice little secrets and option bosses for those who like exploring. Each character's skills comes with their own unique gimmicks to make them stand out in the party, and the soudtrack is suprisingly catchy.

The only major down side is that this is the first game in a 5 part series, and the rest haven't shown up on steam yet, though with them all having been greenlit that will hopefully be fixed soon.
