Let me start by saying that I am an avid RPG player, in fact it is nearly the only genre of games that I play. By far my favorite sub-genre for RPGs are turn-based ones. Since these are dead on the home consoles, I jump at the ones that still make their way onto the handheld systems.

Enter Xseed's localization of Trails in the Sky, a JRPG developed by Falcom originally for the PC.

The first thing many PSP RPG gamers will ask is: Why would I buy another Legend of Heroes game when the first three sucked so bad?

Well here are three reasons:

1) The game is localized by Xseed, not Namco Bandai. Xseed has done a truly fantastic job of translating this game, something Namco failed miserably at.
2) Xseed did not fool around with the game play, something Namco also did with the original trilogy.
3) This is the first game of a trilogy, and the story contained in this game have absolutely nothing to do with the other three localized by Namco. Namco also released the last trilogy out of order (they obviously didn't care about the games at all...) and Xseed is releasing this trilogy in the proper order ;)

Story (spoiler free):

So lets talk about the game. First and foremost this game is heavily story based, and is not voice acted. If you do not like to read a lot of text for story advancement turn away now. The main purpose that I play RPGs is for their story, and Trails in the Sky delivers. It has been a long time since I have been this hooked on an RPGs story that once I pick the game up I don't put it down until I have too (food or sleep). So far I am a little over 20 hours into the game and just started Chapter 2 (there are 4 chapters plus the prologue). Gameplay is estimated at 50 hours so you'll certainly get your monies worth.

Eiyuu Densetsu Sora no Kiseki FC (or Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky) is probably one of the best jRPGs in relatively recent years. It's honestly got nothing "new" or "innovative" about it. Battle system is semi strategic turn based with the standard physical, magical (called orbaments), and over limits. Story is almost standard jRPG faire, with main characters going on a journey that ended up being a much bigger deal than when they first started. Music is absolutely lovely and fitting, but I didn't find myself wanting to listen to it outside of the game (there are a few game OSTs that are so absolutely outstanding that even when i heard it without having played the game, haunted me). Graphics are soso for the PSP, in fact it looks like a PS1 game.

In short, there's not one category that it's "outstanding". However, instead of only picking one category to be "fantastic" at, it just does EVERYTHING incredibly well, so that when I finished my 50 hours of gameplay, I left wishing XSEED(who did the localization, and btw it is one of THE best localization I have EVER seen in western released JPRGs, including FF series) would hurry and announce the release of game 2!

If I really have to pick one thing I loved about the game though, it has to be the characters, character interaction, and dialogue. Here XSEED seriously over-excelled themselves. This game is incredibly text heavy, to the point of being obnoxious for anyone who's not a fast reader. However, every single dialogue and character has so much charm to them (with the cutest face portrait!) that I can't help but look forward to every new dialogue and scene just to crack up! XSEED, you don't know how much I adore you right now for having done one of the best localizations ever.

Let me immediately say that LOH Trails in the Sky (or TITS as i call it ;) is a good game. If you love JRPGS and turn-based battles, certainly give it a buy. This is a PSP gem worth having. With that said, I still feel as though The Legend of Heroes has a ways to go in its battle against mediocrity. This will be a brief review that I hope to update once i've completely finished the game.

Having played the original LOH games on PSP, I was never able to get more than five or six hours in. They were all generic, stale and seemed to kinda go nowhere and slowly. (at least nowhere exciting.) Sure they are decent laid back "nothing better to do" RPGS but with TITS there was certain hope on the horizon. Promising a deeper story lasting over fifty hours across an interesting world, better characters and a revamped battle system, TITS could easily have been the best RPG on PSP. While the game does for the most part deliver, it doesn't quite meet the expectations that XSEED initially gave me.

STORY
Story is without a doubt (at least to me) the most important part to an RPG. Sure the game lasts fifty hours, but if the story sucks im not going past five. I'm happy to say that TITS doesn't disappoint too much. The initial story involves two main characters as they become newly appointed "Bracers". Bracers uphold the peace in their own respective regions by doing everything that we've done a million times over in every other RPG. (running tedious errands, killing monsters, etc. I'll return to this later.) The two main characters are of course only like sixteen years old, set off on an adventure to become full fledged bracers and because of this the game never gets too mature. BUT it does have some surprises up its sleeve, especially for a LOH game.
