Over recent years, Falcom's long-running Trails series has gained a lot of traction here in the West. We're still a few games behind at the time of writing this article, but publisher NIS America has hit a steady stride in releasing title after title.
And thankfully, we're now at a point where there are enough Trails games on modern platforms to warrant an official Push Square list. But before we can get around to that, we need you to rate these games. For the sake of simplicity, we're only including Trails titles that have been released in the West on current PlayStation consoles.
In other words, we're looking at the whole four-game Trails of Cold Steel saga and the two Crossbell titles, Trails from Zero and Trails to Azure.
To give each game a rating, simply click on the star icon next to its name and add your score. These ratings will count towards the aforementioned list article, which we'll hopefully be publishing in the near future.
So, rate the Trails games for yourself, and then tell us all about your favourites in the comments section below.
Azure then Zero then Cold Steel 3 then a looooooong gap and the first two often terrible with moments of decent Cold Steel games. Not far enough into 4 yet to make a judgment.
I started with Cold Steel 1, so naturally i'm a bit biased of the Erebonian Arc haha. Cold Steel 1 is fantastic, 2 is okay, 3 is okay and 4 is really great. I liked both Crossbell games alot too, but my heart goes out to Zero first because of how it introduces people and places. Love it. Can't wait for Reverie to wrap things up for both arcs.
Have not played the Sky trilogy yet.. Will do so once they become available on console (I do NOT want to play on PC)
I'd like to see the Trails in the Sky trilogy on PS4
Haven't played the Crossbell games yet but my favourite is definitely Trails of Cold Steel 3. Then 2, 4 and 1 in that order.
This is a bit interesting since in reality my favorite of the series would probably be Sky SC. But of this list I would probably go...
1. Cold Steel 4
2. Cold Steel 2
3. Cold Steel 3
4. Cold Steel 1
I'm still working on Azure at the moment but even though I'm not as hot on the Crossbell games they are all great games. There isn't really a bad game in the bunch!
Always love seeing this series get the love it deserves. Every game is phenomenal and builds on one another.
Removed - unconstructive
They are absolutely all great.
I like one the best for some reason, love the slow build up and relations between the classmates.
Now remake sky Trilogy!
I like em all there fun games nice story and character growth
Would really love the Sky Trilogy for modern consoles. The world needs to know the power of Estelle Bright.
The series that teaches us how to effectively build a world and its actors. I think the big trick is in the efficient dialogue and how its written, but I'm no expert in that area.
I'm playing Sky SC for the first time at the moment on my Vita. Would love to see the trilogy on modern systems. Feels like one of those things which will never happen but stranger things have.
Replaying the Cold Steel games after finishing the Crossbell arc. There are a lot of Crossbell references that simply went over my head when I first played through Rean's story!
A couple of things I'd like to see:
1. Crossbell dubbed into English. They have excellent voice actors for the Crossbell characters. I'd shell out another 10 bucks for a dub patch!
2. The ability to carry over choices from Cold Steel 1-2 into 3-4. It's annoying to spend all that time building a relationship in 1-2 to have it completely ignored in 3-4.
Really looking forward to the next game!
