An excellent RPG

Carter83 | May 23, 2014 | Review of Millennium: A New Hope

Millennium: A New Hope is far from being generic. Of course, it's obviously not intended for action RPGs fans, but it's well written and executed. Strategic and challenging (in Hard mode) turn-based battles, clever mapping with lots of secrets and great characters. There is many optional stuff, such as hidden areas or sidequests, which adds to the replayability. I played it many times and I can certainly recommend it.

Carter83 | May 21, 2014 | Review of Millennium: A New Hope

I believe that Millennium is far from being generic. The game is well written, with excellent mapping and challenging turn-based fights (in Hard mode). There are many things that are hard to discover (secret rooms, optional areas and stuff, side-quests) which adds to the replay value. Plus, jumping is so much fun. Is a first part of a whole series, so playing the other part is recommended, obviously. I've finished it many times and I loved it. Definitively worth playing.

An epic RPG

Carter83 | Oct. 31, 2012 | Review of Laxius Force

There may be better looking games, but if you are willing to invest the time and effort into Laxius Force, you will be rewarded by an absolutely epic and thrilling story, enjoyable gameplay and good replay value. There are many interesting characters, something like 100 quests, huge dungeons and plenty of turn-based battles and I don't think I could name many other games that are similar in scope. If you are up to the challenge, it's really worth playing. Just be warned, the Laxius Force saga is a trilogy of games, and together they can easily last for over 200 hours (probably much more in the end, because of all the replaying as one is trying to make a "perfect playthrough"), so experiencing the game to its full potential requires plenty of spare time...

Old-school RPG

Carter83 | Aug. 2, 2012 | Review of Asguaard

Touching story, huge dungeons to explore and very "fluid" gameplay with lot of turn-based fights - these are the main strengths of Asguaard. Also, unlike most of the other RPGs, it offers basically no side quests, it's more one big adventure. Don't expect modern 3D RPG with breathtaking graphics and voice acting here, though, Asguaard isn't meant to be like this. If this isn't a problem, then Asguaard is definitively worth playing, because it's one of the best RPG Maker games out there.
