Ultimately, Rainbow Skies is a fascinating exercise in time. You’re given a huge variety of tasks to complete at a pace you set, be it the main quest or one of the many diversions available. There’s a lot of freedom in this system that’s undermined by your slow progress in completing any of these tasks. Combat, progression, raising monsters and navigating the world are all slow activities. I don’t mind the pace, yet I can’t ignore it.
Though dense and repetitive at length, there are moments that are memorable. I don’t see myself itching to return to it anytime soon, but I don’t doubt it’ll find some love among the turn-based RPG audience. It certainly lacks the punch and awe of the more inspired RPGs of late, and it shows the more you play. Hopefully, should another rainbow decide to appear, it’ll be far more colourful.
After a week's worth of time spent in Rainbow Skies I have to say that even as someone who is not typically a tactical, turn-based RPG player, I appreciate how much has gone into Rainbow Skies. It definitely scratches that particular itch with great progression mechanics, an intriguing world and story, and some great tactical combat. However, the game's unbalanced pacing in story delivery coupled with some serious “what do I do now” moments hamper this otherwise fun tactical, turn-based RPG.
