    GREAT RPG! Pleasant enough graphics and map design. Intriguing story with characters and depth to match. You'll be thinking final fantasy asGREAT RPG! Pleasant enough graphics and map design. Intriguing story with characters and depth to match. You'll be thinking final fantasy as this goes along without the lengthy cutscenes. A great addition to the genre and definitely worth 5-10 hrs of your time. Expand

    Although lacking in some of the combat mechanics, this game is a pleasant surprise to a dying genre. Never before have I wanted to experienceAlthough lacking in some of the combat mechanics, this game is a pleasant surprise to a dying genre. Never before have I wanted to experience a JRPG in such a way in the last 3 years. Truly the best JRPG of the year. Collapse

    4) Nice artwork for each characters

    CON:
    1) Not so original
    2) Armor/Weapon Upgrade/Craft System to be improved
    3) Impossible to compare new Armor/Weapon with owned Armor/Weapon when you buy it
    4) Few bugs! (Do not try to equip an armor to Claret when she already equipped the "final armor suite"...)
    5) Longevity; only 5/6 hours of story. BUT you can do some long subquest.

    Skyborn is not free of mistakes, but what it does wrong, it makes up for in charm. It is also the greatest commercial RPGMaker releaseSkyborn is not free of mistakes, but what it does wrong, it makes up for in charm. It is also the greatest commercial RPGMaker release currently available on Steam.

    Pros:

    + The maps are gorgeous, and proof that RPGMaker assets can be used to create beautiful scenery that suck the player into the characters' world.
    + The first few hours of story flow flawlessly. Cutscenes and dialog are compelling and, again, draw the player into the game world.
    + The characters have charming personalities that do not fall into rigid jRPG stereotypes.
    + Plenty of subquests, if you feel so inclined.

    Cons:

    - One of the dungeons is so long that it disrupted the game's flow, and made me more anxious to try to get through it as quickly as possible instead of explore it.
    - The shop interface does not compare the weapon/armor sold to what is currently equipped by the characters.
    - Like many other games of this genre, plot twists toward the end create a "What just happened?" vibe that feel a bit impromptu/hurried.
    - The easy mode is ridiculously easy, while the normal mode may as well be a hard mode (with the hard mode being a 'harder' mode.)
