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. Emerging in the twilight of an era of great 2D RPG releases that saw Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger appear around the same time, Astonishia Story seems even older than its years when...
Pros: Lovely retro graphics, smart battle - system, solid old - school soundtrack
Cons: Dated, lamentable story and character development, extremely short, few side - quests
Dont buy it you will only put it down withtin the first few hours and probably not pick it up again

Excerpt: I picked this game up on the cheap just after xmas. I am a huge fan of rpg's and was expecting something along the lines of the old mega drive games shining force. This was not the case! You play as a young knight called lloyd who is the hero of the story and you aim is to recover a royal treasure that has been stolen. The storyline is extremly dull dont expext to be kept plain for that reason.
Conclusion: let me start by sayin that i love videogames and rpg's are my favourite genre of which i own over 300 so i think i know quality when i play it. this game is most definately NOT quality or even good for that matter! for starters- the graphics are quite nasty, but lets give it a chance becauase theres plenty of ugly duckling games that play great. this isn't one of them!
Summary: Auch wenn das Spiel ein paar lustige Scenen hat, war es doch sehr enttäuschend. Die Kämpfe werden schnell Langweilig, die Story ist super kurz und die Grafik ist keinesfalls mehr dem heutigen Standard. Vielleicht als Low-Budget noch mal zum anspielen geeignet.
