Good game but hard

  • Summary: This is a good turn-based strat game but plan on doing some grinding or you won't survive. I think it's going to be a good game but I haven't gotten very far into it. The graphics are good.

Too many issues and a lackluster story kill most fun to be had.

  • Summary: I started this game after reading a ton of horrid reviews, now without being too harsh I did enjoy it for what it was worth. But boy did it have some quirks. The graphics are very old school due to it being a PC port of the Korean title with the same name.

worth renting, probably not buying

  • Summary: I didn't hate this game, but I was fairly disappointed in it, to tell the truth. The writing is bad, there are numerous cheesy jokes/references that don't fit with the story at all, and it's very generic in a lot of ways.

Very fun game

Amazon
29 October 2008
  • Summary: This is a very fun game for the psp. I would definetly get the second one if it were to be made. In the game, you travel through levels and join up with friends in order to reclaim a sacred artifact. This is my favorite RPG for psp.

A great game for its genre

  • Summary: Astonishia Story is a very basic RPG game for the PSP. It offers top-down 2-dimensional style graphics with grid style battles. Whether you like this game or not will really depend on if you enjoy these styles of games.

Reminds me of "Shining Force" games

Stan "Khan", Amazon
19 July 2006
  • Summary: This little game has an unimpressive beginning but gets better as it progresses. The graphics are so 32 bit, and yet quite engaging at times. Even though this is not a strategy game, the battles are fought shining-force style on a grid system. There are barriers and land-effects.

Great old-school style RPG

C. M. "rpgLover", Amazon
27 June 2006
  • Summary: Although the story line is a fairly simple, it's very engaging and the characters are cute and very likeable! The graphics are typical of PSP RPGs, but the colors are fantastic. Some of the boss battles are pretty challenging, but regular battles usually just require learning how to work the system.

Can't Make A Korea Out Of This

11 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Astonishia Story’s claim to a footnote in history is that it was among the first South Korean developed RPG’s when released for the PC back in 1994. However, the first much of the wider world would have seen of it was in 2006 when it was ported in slightly enhanced form to the PSP.
  • Pros: Lovely retro graphics, smart battle - system, solid old - school soundtrack
  • Cons: Dated, lamentable story and character development, extremely short, few side - quests

They forgot the story and character bits, which are quite important to an RPG...
