Different type of role playing game that has traditional fights and ones featuring ships.
7 October 2008 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

Yes, this game has pirates and pirate ships in it, the catch is that they are flying ships and the lands you plunder are in the skies. Sort of like the Baiten Kaitos series though this one did come out first and has more of an emphasis on flying than that particular game. The story has you as a kid and his female friend working with the guy's dad as of course pirates. They do their normal routine, but then run across a mysterious girl and the real quest begins as your pirate hideout is invaded by this empire, there is always an empire in these games that invades lands isn't there? Well you go on a quest searching for a ship and trying to stop the resurrection of these giant golem creatures. You also must search for various landmarks and such during the game and this can be fun, but annoying as well. You feel pressed to find them because this other guy is searching to and I do not know what it goes by, but it is annoying when you don't find the landmark first. So you have your many lands, you have a part of the game where your character is deserted on a island too which is fun. So is the part where you are imprisoned in the empires lands. You also must reach a more primitive land, plus another land that is surrounded by dark clouds and there are other places also surrounded by barriers. You find out the empires intentions, you are hunted by a crazed bounty hunter and you also get to be a sort of bounty hunter yourself and go after other pirates not as noble as your team. You meet different pirates who will join you on your quest and you will fly through the skies in various vehicles as well. The combat when you are playing as the characters is pretty standard...basic attacks and some cool special ones. The neat part of this game is the fighting when you are in the pirate ships. These fights are usually a good deal longer, but a nice change of pace.
