    "I prefer RPG Maker XP"

    June 15, 2011   |   By FullOfFail

    Version: RPG Maker VX 1.02

    Pros

    - The tiles are pretty detailed.
    - You can use all the tiles on one map.
    - Has an easy to use worldmap feature.

    Cons

    - A bit too noob-friendly, and just seems restrictive at times.
    - It's hard to find which tiles look right with what.
    - If you ever used the XP version, than you're used to having corners, but this is all flat tiles. Not good for aesthetics.

    Summary

    Besides the different tileset configuration, it's pretty much the same as the XP version. If you already own the XP version, there's really not much incentive to update. It's a good edition for what it is, but not very innovative. If it were to be cheaper, I'd cut it more slack.

    "sounds and graphics are good,customizable."

    February 17, 2011   |   By jayzoy

    Version: RPG Maker VX 1.02

    Pros

    Can be used on vista and windows 7.

    Cons

    Screen resolution,can't be used for complex projects.Is real pricey for what you can accomplish.

    Summary

    Seems half way decent for beginners that are only looking for a 2d rpg maker,but if your looking for a 3d rpg maker you can visit http://www.rpgmakerdownload.com for more information.

    "Do NOT Buy this game. Can not validate serial numbers"

    February 13, 2011   |   By PhillLee

    Version: RPG Maker VX 1.02

    Pros

    Looks good. Trial works.

    Cons

    When buying this game!! You will recieve a serial number. When you enter the serial number, the game will try to authenticate with their servers. Their servers NO LONGER exist!!!!!! And there is no way to get your money back.. THANKS CNET!

    Summary

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

    "Good but could have been better"

    October 24, 2010   |   By Icedragon26

    Version: RPG Maker VX 1.02

    Pros

    Easy to start using, it is a fairly simple UI

    Cons

    Too simple in some cases, the limit on tilesets seems stupid

    Summary

    Overall, VX is decent, the improvements it makes over previous versions are very nice, however, for anyone looking to create an extremely in-depth RPG the tileset and layer restrictions really set VX back.

    "Good thing I didn't bought this."

    August 22, 2010   |   By Tany-1987

    Version: RPG Maker VX 1.02

    Pros

    Good looking, cheaper in comparison to other game engines out there, light weight.
    Packed with a random dungeon generator.
    RGSS2 makes the scripting easier and shorter.
    Compatible to with Vista and 7

    Cons

    Not advisable for a big and complicated project.
    As always, the graphics filter is not good. Rough! But somewhat better compare to its predecessors.
    The default resolution can only be adjusted through scripting, what a hassle.

    Summary

    Apply 30+ events (idle, autorun, scripted, etc..) in a map and FEEL THE LAG! How much more if it is 100, which is the maximum limit per map?

    It's predecessor is a lot better, that's for sure.
    Though you need to install additional plug-ins to make it run in Vista or 7.

    "Good, Clean, RPG Maker"

    December 06, 2009   |   By Blitzykins

    Version: RPG Maker VX 1.02

    Pros

    Easy to use System
    Fully customizable, If your a good scripter with a good imagination!
    Anything you don't like can be changed, I guess thats trait 2.

    Cons

    Battle System is failed (Can be fixed with good scripting and programming)
    Tilesets limited to 5 (Can be changed with scripting)

    Summary

    This is a great RPG Maker, Anything you don't like can be edited... Got an idea? Learn to script and make it happen! This is a no-limit program, all you need is an imagination and the ability to script and you can make anything happen!
    But if you don't know how to script, thats okay! This program has many features for newbies built in!

    Cons

    Tiny characters make your game look like it comes from a time portal from 1990 RPG
    Tileset systems
    Very stupid screen resolution (544 x 416)
    Major downgrade in the battle system
    No background scenery in combats
