Humorous little game
First let me just say that I loved the humor in the game. It was visually beautiful and had a great storyline that kept my interest. Just beautiful characters that have their own personalities. Definite high five to the writers. The game is very similar to Aveyond series. I actually thought it was from the same makers until I saw the makers names.
However, there were two things that I disliked. One there wasn't anything that fully explained the classes until you started doing class changes which is not near the beginning of the game. It makes it confusing when you have items to boost stats permanently and you're not sure if the expensive or rare items will be a waste.
My main dislike of the game is the neverending maps. >.< Some of the maps don't have a definitive end. They just keep looping. So if you enter an area at the north and keep going south, you will end up north again. I spent 66% of the time going in circles. If you have trouble with finding your way, you will get frustrated. Seriously, how do you go up 2 flights of stairs and end up on the bottom floor at the beginning? o.0 Felt like I was trapped in the Bermuda Triangle.
So even though the game lacked initial class information and those detestable 'end up at the beginning maps', I will only take off one star and give it 4.

Due to "strong" language in spots. Suggest adults only,
I enjoyed the Trial and may buy it.
I suggest that BF tag this so younger people won't buy it, I know that some kids as young as 10 play these RPGs and it's important that parents be aware of the content.
Some won't mind, but many will. Better safe than sorry.
I did have to laugh in places and it kept my interest. So it was different and fun.

I had loads of fun playing this game. It was challenging, engaging, and I really enjoyed the story line. For a RPG game of this style, the graphics were a bit more than I expected and I loved the artwork.
I only have a few complaints, which is why I gave Skyborn 4/5 stars instead of 5/5.
1. My biggest complaint, is from beginning to end, I beat this game in a matter of hours. About 6-7, although more on the closer end of 7. And that's with doing side quests and exploring. So the games a bit short, it's starts getting really interesting and fun and then BAM over.
2. I also wasn't a fan of the leveling up system they have. You get two fruits that unlock you're "potential" and let you decide between two paths you can take you're characters and that's it. You'll get a few new abilities right off the bat and then nothing. No leveling up and developing new abilities as you go. This is just my opinion, but if that's the plan, than what's the point of leveling up?
3. No map for any of the different areas. I spent half my time wondering around trying to figure out where I was supposed to go and trying to figure out how to get there. Although it makes the game a bit more challenging, it also ups the frustration factor when all you're trying to do is exit an area and it's taking 10-15 minutes to do it.
Other than these few things, it was a great game and I really enjoyed it. I really hope they add other installments to this game like they did for Aveyond. I would definitely play them.

Skyborn: Too Much Movement
Love these types of games, but all the movement made me nauseus. Darn.
If a lot of movement in a game doesn't bother you, it's a great game.

This one's a fail for me! Didn't like it at all.
This game should have been drastically changed before they released it. It starts out with our heroine in her shop. This is where it starts going downhill. You go from one dialogue to the next, then finally get a quest. At this point I had high hopes that the game would begin. I walked my character into the next village and guess what? It starts again. You cannot play the game without the endless dialogues, and it gets irritating very fast. I definitely do not recommend this one.

A complete beginner !!
I read rave reviews about this game. Never played this genre but was encouraged by the fact it was supposed to have a tutorial. Could not find a tutorial, didn't know what the was going on. Couldn't escape all the endless dialogue and ended up hitting Ctrl+alt+del to escape the game! Really disappointing...luckily I only had it on trial!! All the experienced gamers will prob put this review down but honestly...if you are a complete beginner...try an easier option first that gives simple step by step guides!!

You have to be psychic to play this
But don't bother. There's no way to tell what the character is supposed to do, or how to do it. This has to be the most user-unfriendly game I've ever tried to play, and I certainly won't be buying it. I gave it a one because there's no way to give it a zero.
