Rainbow Skies is a solid RPG that we've been waiting a long time to play. It started its development during the PlayStation 3 era, and it shows since there are some things here that will remind you of its predecessor, but they don't get in the way of you enjoying this great release. The fact that you get triple cross-buy from it on PS3, PS Vita and PS4 is great since it means millions of PlayStation fans now have a chance to enjoy a huge RPG that we highly recommend you try out. Kudos to Sidequest Studios and eastasiasoft for giving us a great game for the PlayStation family that will be a welcomed addition to all of our collections.

Overall, Rainbow Skies is great if you want something to play in short bursts every now and again, but I wouldn’t expect anything special. It’s an average game that’s very grind-heavy and has a lot of fluff. But if you have 80+ hours to kill, you’d probably have at least a pretty decent time. I just wouldn’t recommend binging it.

Rainbow Skies is a very interesting option for those who want to take their first steps in the genre. Role and strategy go hand in hand in a more friendly experience than the one we can find in the great exponents of a genre that does not abound in consoles although the decaffeinated history and lack of depth will not convince the most experienced players. A simple, lightweight title that can entertain any user who wants to make his first steps in the genre.

Anyone interested in a title that is charming and rewarding to spend huge quantities of time exploring should most assuredly check it out, and while the narrative won’t blow people away, it’s also not constantly forcing itself into the forefront.

Rainbow Skies could have been much better if it made exploring the maps less clustered and the pace of the game (and movement) was a bit faster. The combat really needs an overhaul so that fights aren’t taking as long and have less probability of movement errors. Otherwise, it’s a decent game, just a bit too slow. This could be due to the game being available for various PlayStation platforms and by not focusing on more modern hardware, like the PS4 and PS Vita, it feels like it’s possibly been held back.

Rainbow Skies is a perfect example of a sequel that takes everything from its predecessor and does it better. From the dialog to the various system enhancements and the sheer ease of playing on the platform you want when you want. This is a sequel worth looking into and the best part is that you don’t have to play Rainbow Moon to enjoy it as the adventure itself only references its predecessor in passing meta dialog.

With a large world full of humor and adventure to explore, Rainbow Skies improves upon its predecessor in every way, offering plenty to tactical RPG fans who like their quests a little quirky. A must-have for Disgaea fans.

Rainbow Skies is a behemoth of an adventure that could last you hundreds of hours should it get its hooks into you. It’s a vast improvement over its predecessor with a more focused plot and a myriad systems which overlay to provide a deep, tactical adventure. It’s not without flaws but if you’re looking for something light-hearted and accessible while offering a challenge when you want it, you can do a lot, lot worse than Rainbow Skies.
