Summary: To be honest, I'm quite new to reviewing games myself and the only game I have ever reviewed in a forum has been lost to the archives of the Internet. Anyhow, thought I have not played through the entire game, I have watched the entire walkthrough of Trails in the Sky. So here goes: One of the major perks of Trails in the Sky, for those who are willing to set aside "too many words or too much text" as their main deterrent is that Trails setting is very vivid, similar to...

Summary: Pros: * The combat system is solid and simple. * Characters are interesting, fun and vibrant. * The story is interesting and brings meaning to the events. * The game world is filled with lots of detail and fun NPC's. * Magic system is customizable. * Battle retry system that lets you decide if you want the monsters to get weaker if you run into a hard spot. This reduces the need to grind for levels and spoil the game pace.
Summary: This game provides a fun old school RPG experience for players who enjoyed the sprite based action and light hearted take of some of the older generation RPGs. The battles range from challenging to mundane but the experience system prevents you from grinding so as long as you fight a few battles you'll generally be where you need to be. Its a talkative game so be prepared for a lot of reading, the inter party banter gives the game life.
Summary: Trails in the Sky brings a lot of great qualities to the table. It's got nice graphics, an interesting storyline and a great battle system. It provides quite a few options when it comes to customizing your characters and it also provides some nice side events such as quests and recipe collection. I'm having an absolute blast with the game and hope that others will pick it up as well.
Summary: One of the best turn based RPG's I've played in a while. Deep story with a superb battle system that is perfectly balanced. This game has a hell of a lot of narrative, very likable characters with a lot of personality, and an excellent soundtrack. I haven't played many JRPG's for the PSP, but I can bet that this is one of the better ones. Definitely pick this game up if you enjoy turn based battle systems. Many many hours of gameplay, story, and narrative to be enjoyed.
Summary: I bought this game as "new" hoping it would be a factory sealed game. It was pretty obvious that this was previously owned and marked as "new". The game itself was perfectly fine, but the case was pretty scuffed and dirty when I received it. I'm sure the game will run fine, but I'm just a bit disappointed and feel like I've been deceived. Luckily, this was a personal purchase and not a gift for someone else.
