Reviews: Star Stealing Prince
I finished Star Stealing Prince a few hours ago (first the good ending, then the bad ending), and all I can say is this: Wow. I absolutely loved every second of it. The characters are both adorable and badass, the art is great (to quote my host sister who was sitting next to me and reading the cut scenes in weird voices for some time, 'If Erio wasn't fictional, I'd do him'...), so is the plot, the mapping makes you able to explore a freaking lot and the writing was excellent, too. For a RPG Maker game, it was pretty long, it took me about 15 hours to complete the whole game including starting the last part over after forgetting something and fighting against bosses for four thousand times. I especially loved the character designs and am actually thinking about cosplaying one of the characters (probably Snowe or Astra). ...Seriously, I can't think of anything bad to say about this game. I loved it. I absolutely loved it. Every second of it, even when I had to go back and do all of the nightmare dungeon again, it was still fun. What did I enjoy most? Hmmm... I really liked all those little details here and there, for example that you could "use" and pet every cat there was and that the snowmen spoke. Every game needs talking snowmen. The part shortly before you encountered the Slaughterer scared me quite a bit, the last locked door saying "God save us from the Slaughterer" especially. Also, when I went back to the Sabine castle after everybody had left, the lumps of clay freaked me out just a tad too, because, hell, they were essentially corpses, just kind of lying there, and you don't realize that for quite a bit. To sum it all up: This game is pure love. I'd recommend it to everybody who likes classic RP Gs. It's amazing. Play it. Right now.
