    The characters and the storyline are so superbly written, illustrated and realized that it'll be impossible for any RPG fan to not find something to like in Skies of Arcadia.

    One of those rare games that not only sucks you in, but pins you down and gives you noogies as time passes unmercifully.

    Awe-inspiring to behold, deep, absorbing and epic to the nines, Overworks' sky-faring RPG sets a standard that will most others will never attain. You have been told.

    Every ounce of this game exudes tremendous production value, and could easily be Sega's finest RPG in years.

    I am very happy; Skies of Arcadia is not just one of the most beautiful Dreamcast games to play, but one of the most addicting RPG I've played in years.

    Nothing but a journey full of wild discoveries, intense battles, and fun gameplay. To date, this is the best Dreamcast RPG that no one should miss.

    This game is excellent, although its predictable and simple story combined with average character designs and dialogue prevent if from becoming an instant classic.

This game is so different to other RPGs that it deserves more attention; clearly plenty of work was put into this game, from the music, to the settings and story. Collapse

It was a shame that Skies of Arkadia wasSkies of Arkadia will forever hold a place in my heart as one of my favorite games of all time. It was a shame that Skies of Arkadia was released on the doomed Dreamcast, and then resurrected only to come to rest with the semi-successful GameCube. If a game this beautiful, engrossing, and endearing had been released on the PS2 or X-Box, it would have been so much more successful and would have found its way onto the shelves of millions of gamers worldwide. Alas, it shall forever exist as one of the greatest sleeper successes in video game history. Expand
