I finished the game today by beating the final boss after 226 hours.

Oldschool, challenging (no handholding), great story and interesting characters - each with their own backstory - highly recommended!

Yikes - it took you 226 hours to beat the final boss?

JK. The game really has that much content?

Looks interesting and I have never heard of it before.

@HiddenX
Can elaborate on the combat system? Is it true turn-based or some timing shenanigans?

The combat system is a true turn-based system.
Faster (stat based) characters get the next round faster.

You have 4 party members out of 16.

All 16 characters have unique skills, so they are a class of their own.

Not all characters are available from day 1 - go questing to find them.

You have to build up nearly all of them, because for some bosses you need specialists.

The game has ca. 150 hours of normal content.

But if you want to get every achievement (there are 232) some grinding is involved and you get easily over 200 hours.

The final 3 bosses cost a lot of time as well - you have to study their tactics and build parties to beat them.

My guess is that The Great Gaias is more CRPG-ish while Legend of Heroes is a JRPG. I played a bit of Trails in the Sky and didn't care for it much, while this game seems to tick all the right boxes for me and take great advantage of the RPGMaker engine.
