    Well I just bought this game thinking I could do what I couldn't do in rpg maker 2 for ps2 I did like the fact that making world maps and dungeon was easy but I got to say there is alot of lacking in the making of this game...Charater Battlers don't match each other neither does the 2d graphics with 3d model. My next thing is that they have emotions BUT you can't make them Well I just bought this game thinking I could do what I couldn't do in rpg maker 2 for ps2 I did like the fact that making world maps and dungeon was easy but I got to say there is alot of lacking in the making of this game...Charater Battlers don't match each other neither does the 2d graphics with 3d model. My next thing is that they have emotions BUT you can't make them walk around to a certain point major bummer in rpg maker 1 and 2 you could. Expand

    Ok, This game I have to say has way too many flaws in it. Not being able to choose what you look like in battle, it's only based on the class you have chosen. Then theres the animated pictures that are "supposed to go with the 3D modeling", come on what is that. I mean honestly how do you compare an Old man Sage 3D model with some of the younger looking Portraits....just doesn't Ok, This game I have to say has way too many flaws in it.

Then theres the animated pictures that are "supposed to go with the 3D modeling", come on what is that. I mean honestly how do you compare an Old man Sage 3D model with some of the younger looking Portraits....just doesn't work and I was very, very upset over that. Another thing that hit me was not being able to customize your outfit bit by bit, only one solid color and there was only 4 of them. Weapons should have been all open to whom ever you choose to wield. Some of the items you create are limited to the graphics, such as not be able to produce an item that boosts your status by a point, EX - (Power Food +1 to STR). Oh god! Then theres the magic, whoa boy don't get me started on that, when it comes to RPGs I am a Magic useing fanatic, and to only make what they have there, really got to me. I couldn't even make a Wind Spell at ALL! sigh.... Why did they have to mess it up, I've heard they spent so much time on this game....but apparently not enough. Over all I have to say they did manage to get the game to look very, very nice in graphics I'll give them that, and the map making I liked it was very easy and very creative too. To conclude my review, all I have to say is that if they go for a fourth please, please make it enjoyable at least more than one way like full customazations for Characters, Magic, and Items. Expand

    Love the concept . I had RPG maker one and this is much easier to use however, not being able to customize charector models is such a major draw back that I wanted to throw my controller at the screen. I mean you can ONLY use prefab char models what a crock of crap!!!!!!!

    It stinks that you can't upload your finished RPG to the internet, and it's a challenge to use. [Aug 2005, p.81]

    There's still a massive learning curve, but it's about as accessible as a program of this type can be. [Aug 2005, p.51]

    In the time it takes to create any sort of viable or interesting content in RPG Maker, you could play through a real game. [Aug 2005, p.101]
