Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Limited Edition
Strongly recommend this!
Imported the trilogy for the PSP and I must say Falcom never fails to please. Characters are very well developed to the point where I love them all. The orbment system is very nice as well because it lets you customize your characters the way you want them to play as.
The battle system is also very fun, and requires tactics. It may seem easy at first, but they will through you a challenge along the way. As you move to SC and the 3rd (the later games in the trilogy), there will be boss fights where it truly tests you.
The music in the series as well is just amazing. While we often hear popular composers works, such as Nobuo or Sakimoto, it's refreshing to hear music from the JDK band. From the uplifting battle themes to the emotional scene themes, it's hard to ever tire listening to the music.
Finally, you will be pleased with the length of the games. Totally worth the money. Most games now a days have such a short storyline and sell their games on just features. Legend of Heroes Trails in the Sky does not do this. It exceeds and has good features, and an awesome storyline which can take well over 50 hours to complete. There are also a bunch of side quests that you can do to raise your BP rank.
So all in all, you won't go wrong with this game. I would highly suggest getting it if you have a PSP and are looking for a good RPG.
I own the import version of this game that came out a few years ago and this game is definitely an improvement on the original Legend of Heroes series....not to mention being much, MUCH longer. It was originally called Sora no Kiseki over in Japan and the second chapter of this game is on 2 UMD discs. Definitely a game worth getting.
this is just plain awesome!!
This game is really great!! I've been waiting for this game to be licensed ever since I heard about this a long time ago. Although the game may be a strategy game like you see in Disgaea or Phantom Brave, some of the moves are pretty flashy. The music sounds pretty nice too, especially a music piece called the Silver Will which plays during certain boss battles. The story is also awesome!! I just beat this game and I'm still crazy for more. And to think that this is only the first game of a trilogy!!! I seriously can't wait for the next two games of the trilogy to be released. If you like a good story, this is definitely something you should get because you get pulled in right away and leaves you wanting for more even after you beat it. Plus, this game has a new game+ feature so if you want to get some items you missed or just to replay the story, this will help.
CAN'T WAIT for this game!!
I played some of the Japanese version of this game on the PC a while ago and even though I didn't understand what they were saying, I was still captivated by it. It has fun gameplay, great, charming graphics, and fantastic music. I've been wanting to play this in English for YEARS now. I'm so happy that it's finally being released in the US. Definitely a day one purchase for me.
I definitely recommend this game to anyone who loves enjoyable, charming RPGs.
Best PSP RPG hands down, and im only 12 hrs in!!
This game is just straight up FUN. The quests, the story, the length, the humor. Only once in a blue moon does a portable RPG grab me like this one is. And I just finished the 1st chapter! Im not even halfway and im hooked. DQ8 was the last to hook me like this game, storywise. Cant wait to finish this game and play 2 and 3. Big Ups to Xseed and Falcom for sending the game to the US. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
One of The Best Games I've Ever Played
It is frustrating how little recognition this game has garnered. The amount of quality and care put in by Xseed makes this an easy purchase. The story has individual twists for each region you visit, and the grand finale will leave you at the edge of your seat. The combat has mixed the perfect amount of strategy and timing with turnbased, it is balance perfectly to ensure battles don't get boring and each character can be customized in different ways so your party will be unique to you. The music is fantastic, and you don't really notice it until you listen to it out of context. The game is filled with vibrant scores from the great Falcom Sound Team. The graphics are perfect for this kind of game, 3d sprites with a full 3d world. Character portraits each have a handful of emotions to go along with the dialogue. The script is amazing thanks to Xseed's wonderful localization, you will really get into the characters and find yourself chuckling at the banter between the characters. All of the characters are likeable in different ways and each has their own backstory. Personally, I've found the replay value quite high, the first time through I played for just the story. The next time will be even more challenging if players want to try completing all of the guild missions, some are hidden so it can be difficult to get all of these without help from a guide. People say the JRPG genre is becoming repetitive (while FPS games are praised with the same game every year). This game doesn't do a ton that sets it apart from others, nor does it need to. But the plot is original and you'll love all of the twists and witty dialogue it has to offer, everything this game does do, it does it very well. Pick it up, play it, and PRAY for the rest of the series to be localized!
If you like JRPGs, BUY THIS!
I'm gonna try and keep this short. I just beat this game and I came on here just to give it a good review so that we can get the rest of this series over here. I didn't even know it was a trilogy til I beat it and it talks about "things to come." They are working on the "Second Chapter" but it's going to be awhile because it's 2 discs!
So, about the game. It does start off slow and I will tell you now that there is a lot of dialogue, but I really enjoyed it. Sometimes it's too much, especially if you're really tired, but whatever. The story is pretty good. A little cliche at times but isn't that what we love anyways? The mood is pretty light-hearted for the most part. The humor is cute and refreshing. You really get to know a lot about the characters and the towns and such. The game is being praised for it's great translation and you can tell. The ending to this game is what puts the icing on the cake. Very touching. I honestly teared up a bit and I'm not afraid to admit it being a 30 y/o male. And then it leaves you wanting more with a teaser for the Second Chapter.
Ok, so this isn't that short. I don't need to say much about the battle system, for it is done really well. Simple but still opens up a lot of strategy. Solid magic/stat system. What I thought was kinda unique, was that even though you can have 4 in your party, you go through out most of the game with less than that. You don't just get tacked on characters to fill up your party. They are there for a reason. And someone below mention that the game was too easy. I found the difficulty to be just right. Not hard really but did have some challenging moments. You will die. There is some fights where I died a few times. I guess what makes it easy is that you can restart from THAT battle as opposed to your last save(which you can also do). I liked it. I hate going back to save points. You can also save whenever you want.
If you've read this far, stop and go get this NOW!
WILL be great!!!!!!!
This looks amazing and it WILL be a bestseller and I can't wait to play this! I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS!!!
Looks Good, but...
This game looks like it is going to be great, both graphical and story wise. However, I am disappointed that only the limited edition is available through GS. I would like to see just the normal edition available. That aside, I still believe this game will be amazing.
Over 50 hours of Gameplay, Beat in 35 Hours.
This game has had a massive graphic update from the original trilogy.
My only disappointment was that there was hardly any challenge.
Other then that it's a great game.
