    Marred by technical difficulties, ultimately simplistic design and a painfully complex interface, RPG Maker is less a dream come true than a nightmare that never seems to end.
  2. What good is a set of tools that frustrates more than it aids creation?
  3. If you have some vision, creative ambition, and a whole lot of time on your hands, RPG Maker just may be the game for you.
  4. Although its graphics are dated and its sounds poor MIDI-like compositions, your imagination and your patience are the only limits to what you (and only YOU) can achieve in the game.

    You can make fairly decent games on this thing; but, just a fair warning for those who haven't played it, it is so limited.

It still is I don't know what the hell that guy is smoking, but honestly it is a bit hard 2 navigate. But don't let that deter you. It still is well worthy of a purchase. Once you spend a few hours learning how 2 get stuff running it becomes just as addicting as many great RPGs such as Diablo 2 and the FF series. Full Review »

    Easy tool, good graphics (enough for the PS engine and compared to other RPGs) great music! Better than some other RPGs... Fun to play! Easy tool, good graphics (enough for the PS engine and compared to other RPGs) great music! Better than some other RPGs... Fun to play! specially if you figured out how to make good use of all tools. What else would someone need? You can even make you graphics if you buy a mouse, I believe... but never tried it! Full Review »
