Crimson Gem Saga

Crimson Gem Saga is a role-playing PSP game developed for the PlayStation Portable in by Matrix Software (Japan) and published by Atlus USA. The game takes premises in the world of Latein. It follows the adventures of Killian von Rohcoff, who has a penchant for being at the wrong end of fate. Killian is now caught up in the battle for an artifact known as the Crimson Gem. The gameplay in Crimson Gem Saga is similar to turn-based RPGs, with a few extra twist in the foray. This includes an ambush system where contact between the player's icon and a generic monster icon on a field map will trigger a battle. If the player manages to sneak up on the monster (ie, the monster has its back towards player), the player will gain immediate preliminary attack with the combined force of all party members. If the monster is aware of the player’s presence (denoted with a “!” symbol above their head), the monster gains a preemptive attack on the player with the combined force of all the enemy party members. Players can also customize their weapons and skills, and combine attacks that include powers from up to 4 party member. The game has an ESRB: T (Teen) rating for Blood, Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, Mild Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol and Tobacco.

Features

Crimson Gem Saga requires players to master the Critical Combo System to deliver multiple hits and damage to an enemy. Players can team up with Allies to unleash massive dual, triple or all-team attacks and the game also features detailed character and sprites. The game showcases hand-drawn visuals on 2-D artwork. The game features 8 main characters where the player (as Killian) can interact with. They include Acelora (a Radiant Crusader that serve the Order of Light), Spinel (an elf, and a self-described “treasure hunter extraordinaire”. This character interacts with Killian at the beginning of the game), Herbert con Guterrian (Killian’s rival from the days of Green Hill Academy. Is an arrogant character with a unique laugh and is always up to beating Killian at everything), Henson (mysterious, wise-cracking mage who is quick with an insult and a burning fireball), Jeffrey (the only character who has even worse luck than Killian. He first runs into Killian while in the middle of a dispute with Spinel), Lahduk and Gelts (is a former priest who has renounced his old ways).
