How Skies of Arcadia Pushed the Dreamcast

Alex S. from Link-Cable writes: "After months of revisiting some of gaming’s most special moments by looking at the games that pushed their original systems the furthest we’ve come to our grande-finale and will be taking a look at a game that is beloved by many released on a console that was equally loved. Today we’ll be talking about the Sega Dreamcast classic Skies of Arcadia, an RPG that took the genre in interesting, bold directions while pushing the least powerful console of the 6th generation to heights that made it compare favorably with some of its peers. This is the story of how Skies of Arcadia pushed the Dreamcast."

Amazing JRPG. Skies of Arcadia & Grandia 2 were my favorites on Dreamcast.

agree..FF7 really got me in the mood for more rpgs..

So, as the years went by Dreamcast didn't get many rpgs and as a die hard Sega fan back then these 2 games really made full use of my Dreamcast.

SOA was very unique with the airship travel at the time.

SOA Legends is still one of my favorite RPGs of all time. The changing music that played depending on how good or how bad you were doing. The Cast. The ship combat. The base building. Such a great game.

Awesome RPG. Still have it on Dreamcast.

Back off! Alpha Storm!
Fire consume my enemies! Lambda burst!
Here it goes! Omega Cyclone!
Haaaaauuh!...Ha! Cutlass Fury!
Behold! Pirates Wrath!
Moons...Petrify my enemies!
May righteousness be our shield. Shield of Justice!
Haaaa! Take that!


Love this game. Should have been a sequel by now or a Remake at the detail level of Sega's other games like Yakuza. Make it really look like a cartoon. We need more Vise and Aika.

The only exposure I had to this series was playing as Vyse in Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed

ApocalypseShadow973d ago (Edited 973d ago ) got to play this game. If you liked Sega's rpgs back in the day,you will love this game. The music, the story, the characters,the humor, the airships. It is a great one that I would put up against any rpg made by square or any Japanese developer...TODAY. And it came out years ago. It's that good....seriously. It's that good.
