Mar 23, 20129Another game from Aldorlea. But this time, it's not a part of a series as Millennium or Laxius, but standalone game. There are basically no sidequests, it's all about the main story. You travel through the world of Asguaard and try to stop a destruction of the whole world. Even without sidequests, there's still a lot to do. The world map is huge and very detailed, with many secret locations - easily the best I've ever seen in any RPG Maker game. Also, because of the absence of sidequests, you are never too strong or too weak and progressing through the game feels very "fluid" and "natural" - there's always enough challenge. Another speciality of Asguaard is the Skills system - it's kinda similar to the old Might & Magic games - there are some skill such as Axe, Swords, Pathfinding and for each rank of the skill you need to find a trainer. Some of the dungeons are huge and really hard to get through, graphic and music are good. I won't reveal the story, but I can say that it's touching and a bit sad. Actually, the whole game has a bit "melancholic" feeling. And just for the record - the playing time is around 40 to 50 hours, so it's definitively a big game. If you enjoy this kind of games, Asguaard is definitively worth playing.… Expand
May 11, 201310Often considered the best Aldorlea game (check the community!), the game lives up to its reputation mostly due to an extraordinary and enchanting story, as well as sheer size. Yes, it really takes a long time to complete it, but the journey's worth it.
