Dear Skies of Arcadia fans!

I got myself a Dreamcast again (must have been number 5).
In the pacage i allso got a mint condition Skies Of Arcadia!

Im not a very big fan of RPG, but i´ve read alot of good things of this game!

I tried it for half an hour, but turned it of, since it was not so much fun!

My question is:
Is skies of arcadia a game that you have to play for a while, to like it?
Ive got an offer from a guy who wants to change it in a Shenmue game(I collect shenmue stuff, since im a die hard fan)..

Do you guys think I should give the game a try, or is it a game for the turn based RPG fans?

Im not a big fan of FF either btw!

Sorry for coming on the forum and starting up topics right away, but thats part of the game:) I have to answer too this on Forums im active on allso:)


(Im from scandinavia, so there might be words that are spelled wrong:D)

Hi Shenmue2011.

Just how far are you into the game?
Where abouts ie. island or event.

SoA is a turned base RPG, I don't normaly play them myself.
Im more into the 'Tales of' games where you can controle the battle.
Saying this I love SoA and own 4 different versions (DC/GC)

I would give it another go, the story does not really start untill after the first two areas and first two bosses. After that the story gets going.

As you have the DC version you will run into alot of random battles.
This was reduced in the GC version.

Again I would say give it another go.
Then again Im a big fan of SoA as its tied first with Tales of Symphonia as my all time favorite RPGs.

Hi! Thanks for answering so quick!

I was fighting a monster in the ship!
The guy who owned the ship was a spoiled guy who said i could take the ship if i wanted it so bad or something!

I think it was 5 minutes after i saved that princess?


I think i will try it again:)

But what should i expect from the game? Smile

People who like this game like the following things about it:

1. The visuals and presentation. It's got cool airships, floating islands, cool music, lots of dramatic camera angles that were super-impressive for an RPG back when the game came out. The story moves along at a pretty good pace, too, and it never really gets boring. Occasionally you take control of a big airship to fight another big airship. The airship battles aren't the most sophisticated things around but they look cool and lots of people like them.

2. The setting/premise. You play a group of airship pirates who go around fighting an evil empire. The characters are also explorers who travel to new lands and discover new things.

3. The ultra cutesy characters. The characters in this game are good guys. Like, they're really, really the good guys and there isn't any doubt at any point that they're not the bestest good guys of all the good guys in Herotown.

4. Eventually, you get your own airship that you can customize in various ways. This is kind of neat.

5. You can fly around the sky (the world map) with your ship, making discoveries and uncovering new landmarks.

Those seem to be the main things that people like about the game. You've experienced reasons 1 through 3 and you don't seem impressed; I would say that if reasons 4 and 5 don't appeal to you then it's probably just not your game.

For reference, I don't know anybody who started out not liking the game and then came to like it after playing it for a little while, but then again I can't think of anybody offhand that tried the game and didn't enjoy it.

I had head people raise this game to the skies long before I played it. After finishing it, I totally agree with them. Good luck with the game, you have have one heck of a journey ahead of you.

The one and only; Dreamcast.
