Playing this game for roughly 1.5 hours now, and really I think the game is good considering the generation it's trying to capture. The nostalgic feeling of difficult games from the 1980s and 1990s, unforgiving and kind of grindy. This game takes more then a few hours of hitting the "Attack" button. It makes you consider your resources carefully.

Engaging in a battle, and just attacking while paying the minimum amount of attention will likely get you killed more often then not. It takes a little planning and some real thought on how to approach the groups of monsters. More then once have I delved into a cave full of monsters, earned a substantial amount of money, just to lose it all on resurrection costs and inn stays. Think about the fight and utilize your characters' abilities. For a while I was using Lionel primarily to First Aid allies that were getting crushed in battle. After a few levels, they easily best groups of enemies.

A lot of reviews make this game out to be bad and hard, and I just didn't think it was fair. By today's standards, yes it could be considered quite brutal at times, but that doesn't make it bad. It makes it challenging. The class system and morality system really make this something I could finish and immediately pick up again.\

Thanks for this game!

This game makes me very irate. I'm less than two hours in, and here's what I have to complain about:

1. The dialogue has clearly never been read out loud before. It's awkward, long-winded and bad.
2. The battles at the beginning are infuriatingly long. Not so much difficult, but long. Also, dear god but the main character misses a lot.
3. The art for the first boss is out of place, blurry, covered in artifacts, and just plain awful. This game would have been better served by a stock RPGMaker enemy that at least fit the look of the rest of the game.
4. When you talk to the sleeping soldiers from different sides, they take on different sprites - an old man, a young girl. This is because the sprite sheet for "fallen" characters have sprites for every character, rather than different directions, because corpses don't turn to look at you. Preventing the fallen sprite from changing when you talk to it is as simple as checking the "Direction Fix" box in the event menu.

One click. ONE CLICK.

This is a lazy mistake, and just goes to show the lack of testing, and the overall rushedness of this game. It certianly doesn't bode well for the rest of it, but hey, if it wows me by the end of it, I'll update this review. I'm not holding my breath though.

I'm a huge fan of the first Legionwood, which has a fantastic story, a memorable cast of characters, and very challenging battles. The game was so inspiring to me. If you haven't played Legionwood: Tale of the Two Swords, I highly recommend it! Plus, if you do, you'll be familiar with the setting in this game.
However, that being said, to enjoy this game, one would not have to play through the First Legionwood.
I really do think it would enhance your experience though! There are some changes to how you develop your characters this time around, but the overall feeling is still there I think with the new class system. It's a blast. The battles are fast & fierce! Everything is so much smoother! I grew up playing RPGs and the Final Fantasy games as they were released in the US, and old school RPGs are what I crave these days. The story is great, and there are many nods to the events in the original. I find myself never bored at all, and quite honestly, I thought it would be hard to top the first game. But I feel as if Dark Gaia has achieved it! The script is phenomenal, the dialog is fresh, very well written, and the soundtrack for this game is breathtaking. Now over 13 hours in I can say this game is a masterpiece. This is such a unique way to continue the story from Legionwood: Tale of the Two Swords, I found myself in awe. The characters in this game have real personalities, and characterization is a key for good storytelling. This game has it all. Do yourself a favor and give it a shot. Anyone who plays this game for at least a few hours will be completely enthralled.
If you are a fan of RPGs, you will love this.

Yes it's rpg maker, but the fun factor is completely through the roof to the point where the engine does not matter. I love this game, with it's thrilling battles and challenging boss fights where you actually have to THINK. This reminds me of the good old days of the difficulty of ff6 and ff4j, the game will kick your butt if you don't think of a strategy even in random battles but it's very satisfying to make a class combo with your 4 character party and see the good synergy and get a well deserved win.

If dying in a random battle is enough to frustrate you instead of make you grin and say to yourself, "next time!!" then this game is not for you. And check out the first legionwood, its fun. It's FREE!

Good game, it's got a cute style and decent storyline.
Only complaints are that death ends the game, leaving you to restart completely or from your last save point.
It's good for ramping up the difficulty of the game, but saving in the wrong place at the wrong time can also completely ruin your file and trap you. [Had to restart twice due to doing this]
