The graphics on this game are a little dated, since the original game was release a while ago.
The grid based combat and the arts and equipment systems are simple, but enjoyable.
What truly makes this game a little gem are the storyline and the characters.
The storyline is both entertaining and humorous. It is also very detailed, even the side quests are incorporated in the story.
The characters are fun and endearing.
This game is worlds away from games like Final Fantasy XIII which combine awesome graphics with cheesy and shallow characters and a soporific story.
Here is to hoping we see more games like this in the future.… Expand

Jul 30, 2014If you're looking for an oldschool, turn-based JRPG with a strong story, great writing, and wonderful music, you will love Trails in the Sky.If you're looking for an oldschool, turn-based JRPG with a strong story, great writing, and wonderful music, you will love Trails in the Sky.
The game was first release for the PC in Japan in 2004; it later received a port to the PSP in 2006 that added some extra features, and the PSP version was released in North American in 2011. This is a release of the original PC version, but XSEED has added all of the new features in the PSP version back into it, so this is the definitive version of the game in North America.
The story is set in the kingdom of Liberl and follows the adventures of Estelle and Joshua, two novice adventurers who want to become Bracers; essentially mercenaries who also serve as police and protect the people of the kingdom. The story starts off slowly and takes its time to establish the setting and develop characters, but over time it picks up the pace and they become involved in intricate political plots involving mysterious assassins and powerful ancient artifacts. The game ends with a shocking twist that will leave you pining for the sequel, which is scheduled to be out in English at the end of 2014. Don't let the existence of a sequel stop you from getting the game now, though; it's an entirely self-contained story in its own right. The Trails games are famous for the size of their scripts; the word count dwarfs any of their story-heavy contemporaries such as the "Final Fantasy" or "Tales of..." games. Almost every NPC in the game has their own unique dialog that changes after almost everything you do.
While the story is the star of the show, the game shines in other areas, too. The combat system is a turn-based system that borrows a lot from JRPGs that were typical of the era, but it adds in a tactical, grid-based positioning system, and each character's abilities are fairly diverse and customizeable. The game also has multiple difficulty settings, and if a particular fight is too hard for you, there's a handy option to retry fights that also temporarily lowers the difficulty level. The game's soundtrack is also great; it's exactly what you'd expect from the same developer who created the critically acclaimed Ys series.
Really the only complaint I could make is that the graphics are a bit dated by modern standards, but hey, it's a ten-year-old Japanese PC game. They still do their job as intended, and you're going to enjoy the game enough that you won't care.… Expand
Sep 21, 2014One of the best JRPG out there available in English,. There are already sequels to this but they are not available in English yet so i hopeOne of the best JRPG out there available in English,. There are already sequels to this but they are not available in English yet so i hope they will be putting it on steam in the future.
it includes alot of new systems some very unique animation as well as good story plot.
very good game for those who wants to look for a good JRPG. brings back alot of good memories of other old rpgs for me ;) all JPRG involves grinding, it is what the game is about , you fight, you earn exp then you level up. But its like a mmorpg in a single player game. this game is worth it and has around 50-80 hours of gameplay.
i am glad it made into Western market so more people will know about JRPG… Expand
Jul 31, 2014Great old-school RPG. Its story is very refreshing compared to JRPG you see nowadays and has a very interesting battle system as well. OneGreat old-school RPG. Its story is very refreshing compared to JRPG you see nowadays and has a very interesting battle system as well. One could say it's kind of slightly comparable to Grandia to some extend yet has its own customization while still not becoming overcomplicated, it found the right middle to avoid headaches.
The PC version has been enhanced to make it playable on new systems and has been updated to be able to support most high resolutions both in full screen and windowed screen. The game itself is the first part of a very popular trilogy in Japan that have a lot of continuation. The story is definitely a huge factor in this game, you will feel immersed in it and it is very well written as well. The story itself also go along with several more stories as well, that's how deep it truly is. You don't see those kind of stories in JRPG nowadays.
The game's musics and song are also of the highest quality, just like most works that have been created by Falcom. From the battle theme to everything else, I must admit I really enjoyed all the musics featured in Trails in the Sky FC.
All in all, the PC version of Trails in the Sky FC is a must have and has been updated to include everything that was originally included in the PSP version, including things such as the monster book, new game+ and unlockable difficulties. XSEED did a really good work at backporting all those features to the PC version to make it indeniably THE version of the game that is the best all around.… Expand

I expected something deep like old-style JRPGS I've played (Lufia, Secret of Mana, Terranigma), but this is just cutsie nonesense. The game does nothing to draw you in at all. Combat is lackluster as can be. It may start to become good once you've played 20 hours or so (who knows), but this one is definitely not one of the entertaining variety. Keep away if you don't like it shallow.… Expand
