I remember buying this one from a Humble Weekly bundle a while back, even paying extra to get a special tileset to make cyberpunk games out of. It might have been worth the around $7 that I payed for it, but definitely not the $69.99 they're asking for it. Here's why:
1) The resolution is locked at 640x480. This isn't really that big of a crime when you think about it, since 640x480 is a very comfy resolution for an RPG and a really large resolution would mean that too many tiles would be displayed on screen at once, but what makes this bad is that you can't go fullscreen in a way that's not stupid, which ruins immersion a little bit but more importantly prevents upscaling on larger monitors, meaning that people with really large native resolutions might be stuck on what is basically a postage stamp to them.
2) The tiles are locked at 32x32. If you just wanted to make your original game work around smaller tiles for whatever reason, tough luck!
3) I tried and couldn't find a way to make it so that whenever you start a new project, they don't already make half the game for you and fill your attacks and items databases with prefabs. Manually deleting all the pre-made items and attacks every time is annoying. It's a good feature for people that would make fantasy-themed RPGs, but if you wanted to make something else then deleting these large amounts of pre-made things every time is tedious.
4) Everything that this thing does, GameMaker can do better, and for free. In GameMaker, you can make the resolution or tile sizes be anything you want. Of course, there's more coding involved when using GameMaker, but considering how much Ruby scripting you'll have to do in RPG Maker to do anything that would make your RPG a bit unique in terms of features, this isn't really a problem.
Overall, just go with GameMaker for making your RPGs. There's slightly more to learn, but consider how much more the FREE edition does than the $69.99 RPG Maker.
