  1. An RPG-making beast that requires serious time and dedication. [Holiday 2003, p.40]
  2. Sadly, you can't create textures or models, but those who are able to tame this monster will still find an abundance to love. [Nov 2003, p.92]
  3. 75
    Those who stick with the clunky interface and difficult scripting options will be able to pull off some truly incredible pieces of work.
  4. Please don't think this is one of those games you can just pick up as you go along. It isn't. Trust me... This is work. [Nov 2003, p.144]
  5. 70
    If you’re really serious about this, better game-creating titles do exist, especially on the PC, offering easier interfaces and more freedom to mess with the basic building blocks. Still, this makes for an entry point into the vast realm of game design.
  6. It has one major flaw - the gameplay is downright appalling. A blind man on ice has more control than your character's general movements. [Jan 2004, p.130]
  7. "Fu-Ma" (the included game) is both useless and boring. It's blurry graphics and awkward control (in an RPG?!) provide a sickening surety that no matter how much time you spend in design, the final result won't be worth playing. [Feb 2004, p.88]
