I have it but have not played it yet :( I wanted it when it first came out, but didn't end up getting it until afew months ago.

How do you like it?

I really like RS and I finished in both paths and I have the 4 powerful weapons in the game, but I don´t completed it 100% yet.

11th Aug 2012, 18:51
Now I finished! Not 100% yet... just all the bosses.

Now I finished!

Seems that you write that last paragraph as a signature. Why don't you use the proper signature option then? That way you don't have to write it everytime (or copy-paste).

Aaah...can you teach me,please!?

When you're in a forum thread, like this one, a choice called Preferences will appear on the the top left corner, under Square Enix and Forums. Click it and it features an option to add a signature. Just place what you want, and that's pretty much the whole process.

No one?

So, what do you think?
Should this happen?
I miss this game!
The story was so amazing because it had two sides of a story to tell!
If they remake it for the PSVITA, I think they should add in more places to explore or something like that...new items?? Characters?(even though there a lot to choose from)

If they can't remake it for PSVITA, then just re-release it on PS3 under PS2 Classics.

Talk to me!

Man, I forgot I had this game. I need to play it agian and if they brought it to the Vita, I would be all over it.

9th Apr 2013, 03:48
Oh yea, an HD version of this for Vita would be great

Tri Ace is the one you'd want to talk to about this since they made it, S-E only published it in Japan and NA

Now this game brings me back. I wasn't initially too impressed with it at first, but it took a different approach from mainstream JRPGs that was definitely interesting. I especially liked the part where you could start a fight with nearly any NPC in town. I just wish aspects like that had included more of an immersive quality, because it was underwhelming to be talked down to by the toughest guy in town, start a fight with him and woop his ass, and then be brushed off like nothing ever happened.

i played this so long ago you could bascally have anyone on your team depending if you chose humans or mythical creatures and i still have the orginal ps2 copy should it be remade i dont think it needs too it might not do that good

How long has it been? This game is still my No.1. I hope they will consider the ideas about remaking it, or even better, a sequal of this beautiful lively game.

Radiata Stories!!
If any of you readers don't knows about it, check it out! Wikipedia, Youtube, Reviews and so on~
This game has many characters, and the story line is fantastic! (To me at least)
Those who wishes to play this game again, or play the awesomeness that I had (If you haven't), Please post below this showing your support!
If Square Enix is making a remastered version of Final Fantasy, why not Radiata Stories too?
If a remastered version of Radiata Stories is out, I'd be the first one to place an order on it!

Here is a few reviews about the game:

Radiata Stories is a great game. It's filled with characters that take time to recruit and it allows for you to create two completely different stories depending on if you side with humans or non-humans. The story is very interesting and the entire game is a bit cartoony but in a good way. The battle system is also very enjoyable. Radiata Stories also has something that all good Tri-Ace games have: It has an excellent bonus dungeon. Also the game has several funny shoutouts to other Tri-Ace titles (such as the Fayt armor). I would definitely recommend Radiata Stories.

Radiata Stories for the PlayStation 2 is an underrated gem. Although the game starts off slowly, it takes the time to introduce a wide variety of memorable characters each with distinct personalities. For its time, the game had a beautiful art style and an immersive world.

Each of the 175 recruitable characters for your party has their own back story detailed in Jack's friends list after they are recruited as well as their own set of unique skills, passive ability and stat progression. These characters have unique routines such as only appearing in a certain location such as a shop in a certain time frame.

The dialogue throughout the story doesn't shy away from being comedic which results in a charming main cast. Your first play-through will last around 30-40 hours which is disappointing because the game does such a great job presenting the story and characters that you don't want it to end. However, an enigmatic post-game dungeon increases the playtime by around 10 hours.

Combat is done real time as you control Jack while your three other characters have their own AI. Combat tactics can be assigned to your own liking. You can assign a certain party member to focus more on healing while others dish out maximum damage. Several different links are also present which are basically positional formations for your party. Have a single enemy to take down? Use the "box link" to surround your enemy from 4 corners to overwhelm it. The AI of your allies isn't perfect but it gets the job done.

If you want a classic, underlooked PlayStation 2 RPG with a charming cast, story, and depth in party customization, give Radiata Stories a chance.

This is the most pure and honest fun I have ever had with a game since the early days of Pokemon. The world is so rich and the characters are all interesting and different, and pretty much ALL recruit-able. I have 3 complaints - The beginning is kinda slow, there are some occasional glitches, and finally I just wanted this game to be longer so I could enjoy the world more. 2/3 of these complaints would be fixed in a good sequel, and the first one just takes some patience to reach to the amazingness of this underrated title. If you are tired of every game taking its-self way to seriously and just want to play a game centered around enjoying yourself in every possible way, you have no reason not to puck this up.

I love this game, I need say nothing more. It is by far one of the greatest video games that I have played ever. I am not saying it is perfect by any means, but it stands out and says "Look at me **** and that is something I respect. The first thing I love it the sheer level of love that was put into this. I can literally just imagine the makers sitting at their desks and saying "Hey how about he pour our very souls into a game?" and this is that. I imagine I sound insane at this point but I honestly do not care what so ever. Sure the combat is a bit bland in a few ways, it lacks powers that you can personally use in the fights and although you can use commands to fix that it is a bit awkward since you have to pause and go through a list each time you do. I also admit that it is not overly well animated, but that is only if you go and compare the tech we have now to it, which only a twit would actually do when judging. The characters are unique and vast in numbers, and it makes you feel like you are just another character, not better than anyone, but along side them. It makes you feel like your character is part of something rather than leading the charge. You nearly never walk around and see a person without a name in the game, if a person is in the street that are a unique and specifically made part in the world, the exception to this being the castle I suppose. I also love the branching in it, not only being unique but also vastly altering in how things play out, though I prefer the human story line in all honesty. Overall I would put this game in my top ten favorites, being in it's own way deserving to become a classic, even if such is doubtful.
