The in-game artwork is phenomenal and I absolutely love it, but the user interface feels pretty terrible to use. That being said, it is a legitimate RPG making software and I love that you can upload your creation to the internet for ANYONE WITH A 3DS to play and enjoy! ...Though, if you want to upload more than one game at a time, you've got to pay an extra dollar for it. Bummer. I have to say my favorite part about this software is that you can fully create and customize your maps, characters, weapons, you name it. That, and there is a ton of memory to work with so you can really let your creativity explode. My least favorite part about this game is the combat, which is extremely randomized, difficult to fine-tune, and featuring mundane translation-based animations. I promise, the games I will make on Fes are not going to be combat-heavy.
RPG Maker Fes is essentially a watered down version of RPG Maker VX Ace, which means it's great for kids interested in making games or programming, events, and the like.
Last thing I'll note: some of the text in the editor is misspelled and I can't believe they got away with it. I don't know what's up with that but it makes me not want to buy their software.
There are a number of limitations on how big your game can be (number of characters, professions, items, abilities, maps, etc.), but the biggest limitations are the limitations of the battle system. The battle system is an old school turn-based RPG in which each character and enemy gets one action per round. Characters have four options: Attack, Defend, Special Ability, and Item. Special abilities must either be Magic, which uses the magic stat and costs MP, or Deathblows, which uses the attack stat and (strangely!) costs HP. Each of these has its own limitations. For example, Magic cannot both deal damage and have an additional effect, and deathblows must always involve attacking an enemy. There are also some oddities to how stats work. For example, spells scale in power more slowly than physical attacks (there are ways to get around this, though), and every 40 intelligence a character has reduces their spell costs by 1. But if you understand all these limitations, and work within them, you can definitely have a good time making your own relatively simple RPG.

It is difficult to start because the manual is very badly written and makes close to no sense. You can check youtube to discover how to make things work, really worth checking youtube before you start playing the game to make it more enjoyable.
Character portraits are good, assets are fine.
DLC is mostly skippable.
