This is a terrific RPG
Let me address the length of the game. Some reviewers feel that it is too short. While it is true that this game takes fewer hours to play than many RPGs, the reason is that Skyborn eliminates two annoying time wasters so common to other RPGs.
First, the game is paced so that you don't have to spend countless hours playing the same area over and over and over again simply to level up your characters. In most RPGs, I spend up to half my playing time enduring the mind numbing boredom of replaying the same area.
Second, the game does away with secret rooms. Without them, you don't have to waste hours touching every single pixel in the game looking for secret entrances. Perhaps, that is a problem for some advanced players, but this intermediate player did not miss the tediousness of having to touch everything on every screen in the game.
Aside from that, the game was fun and challenging. The only blemish for me was a little too much dialogue.

My family (sons, grandsons and me) have been playing RPG's since the beginning. It is so wonderful to see a beautifully crafted one in this day and age. I thought they were gone for good, but I was wrong.
Will seek and find everything made by this company/developer. Gets my highest reviews although much shorter than the old school RPG's but no less beautiful or well crafted. The music is up to par too.
It is approx 15hrs if you do about 1/2 the side quests. Short, but going back to do all the side quests and enjoy it again. We need more Role Playing Games, Bigfish, are you listening?
One hint for inexperienced RPGers, build your levels by fighting everything in site.

fun adventure game
Great plot and good graphics. I played the easy mode but you have a choice. Multiple items, weapons and armour- lots of choices.

Long enough to be a good buy, but didn't stretch on forever with never ending quests and side-quests. Great storyline that gave a purpose to the adventure. Re-play value also.

definitely one of the better rpg's out there
as far as graphics and ease of play go anyway....you do have to do some retracing...okay quite a bit sometimes to get it all done but still fun and addicting.

If you enjoy adventure RPG this is great game. It starts off a little slow building the story line but picks up soon after and as the game goes on the story is really well thought out. There are a nice variety of monsters to battle. The game play time is a good length. Only con I wish there were more side quest.

I have played several RPG and I really like the story line in this one. The graphics are great and the music is pretty good.
