Summary: I bought my psp at launch, and am still not only enjoying everything the system has to offer (watching movies, playing games, listening to music etc.) but I'm still discovering hidden little gems like this one. This is an old school turn based rpg with fantastic graphics, and well paced action and difficulty. Story is nothing ground breaking, but serviceable, but it's ok, the production and game play make up for any minor complaints.
Summary: Fantastic game! It's a great standard JRPG for those who just love some happy-go-lucky fun. The pacing is pretty good, and it makes you want to play the game all the way through without stopping! It's not too difficult to understand the combat or item system like some JRPG's, which makes it a fantastic starter to the genre for someone who's not used to it. The only negative thing I have to say about it is that I wish it was a bit longer.
Summary: I've played enough JRPGs to get a little jaded, and it's hard to find any new ones that can hold my interest very long. I usually end up just replaying older ones I still love over and over, so this game was a really delightful surprise. There are three things that, in my opinion, make for a good RPG: a compelling story, characters you actually care about, and fun gameplay.
Summary: I just completely finished this game, well except creating all the crafts which I will do, and I enjoyed it. I have the book so once I saw that they came out with the game I had to get it. The gameplay is fun and as with any RPG it does get repetitive during random encounters but this game has a ton of sidequest that made it more enjoyable to play. This game isn't that challenging but it does have it moments, ie the final two optional bosses.
Summary: I just got a PSP last week and this is one of the first games I picked up and I haven't been able to put it down. Though it lacks the flashy graphics that a lot of people seek in games these days, the story is fun and the characters are entertaining and creative. Based of the same fighting style as Final Fantasy, it goes with the back and forth combat but with an array of new ability.
Summary: This game is really fun. The graphics are excellent, so much detail for each monster. The characters also change a little with new weapons. There are few side missions that are okay. The game is easy once you level up your character but almost any RPG is when your at level 100. I actually stopped playing Crisis Core to start playing this game and I don't regret it at all.
