Skies of Arcadia – Consumer Guide

Brad Gallaway's picture

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence, Suggestive Themes

Parents with older children in their teen years will be rewarded with love and affection upon bringing this title home. However, please be aware that failure to complete homework may soon become an issue. In all seriousness, this game is mostly clean-cut adventure of the purest sort, but there are a small number of scenes which may warrant some guidance due to the emotional intensity. Among these are an implied rape scene—which turns out to be a close call instead of the actual deed, and a scene involving a hostage situation that could be mildly disturbing to younger gamers. Overall, most gamers old enough to be able to figure out how to play the game successfully should be able to handle it, but mild caution goes out to younger gamers and involved parents.

The enjoyment of gamers in general will depend on whether or not they are fans of RPGs. If so, you couldn't ask for a better one than Skies Of Arcadia. With an extremely strong cast of characters, a huge quest spanning fantastic locales and absolutely jaw-dropping graphics, this game is as close as they come to being the end-all, be-all.

For gamers who aren't much into RPGs, they still might want to give it a try, though I wouldn't go so far as to say that this will convert people who would rather play Madden or Quake.

RPG fans: See above. 'Nuff said.
