Impression: Crimson Gem Saga

RPGamer
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Normally when doing a game impression, we try to play the game for at least ten hours before we write one up. I didn't have that much time with Crimson Gem Saga before I had to ship it out to our reviewer in Canada, so I only got about three or four hours in. So while I can't speak to every aspect of the game in depth, I did get to experience a little of everything.

Turn-Based Basics!

  • Conclusion: Crimson Gem Saga is not a game for everyone. It can best be described as a niche title, designed for those who appreciate a good old, classic-feeling RPG experience. If you like fast-paced, action-intensive RPGs, then you should steer clear of Crimson Gem Saga. If you do like the older format, however, this title really is a gem, and it shouldn’t be missed!

Highly polished... and hard to find

  • Conclusion: Spending points to "reveal" abilities, then spending more to earn them.
  • Pros: A notable level of design and polish make it go down smooth like butter.
  • Cons: A lot of grinding is required to ensure progress.

Review: Crimson Gem Saga (Sony PSP)

Diehard GameFAN
19 August 2009
  • Summary: Crimson Gem Saga is a reminder of the golden age of RPG’s. Throughout your play time you’ll recall classic games like Lunar , Shining Force , Knight and Baby , Vay , Phantasy Star and your SNES Final Fantasies . Although the game doesn’t reinvent the wheel and sticks to the tride and true trappings of Turn Based RPG’ing, it does give us one of the best stories and cast of characters this decade, and that alone is worth experiencing the game for.

Crimson Gem Saga

Playstation Illustrated
14 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Crimson Gem Saga is the second game in two weeks to show that there's still a lot of life left in 2D, sprite-based visuals. While it doesn't hit all of the same high points as Super Robot Taisen (also an Atlus release), Crimson Gem Saga looks great. There's nothing worse than a pretty RPG world where you spend just as much time fumbling around trying to find an exit as you do questing and fighting.

Crimson Gem Saga (PSP)

The Review Busters
22 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Is this the game of the year? I am not sure about that but I may have found my top game of 2009 on the PSP. Crimson Gem Saga is a role playing game fans dream. This is the kind of RPG we grew up with during the time when role playing games hit their peak. Instead of saying how good it is even more I am just going to leave my review with this. PSP owners need to buy Crimson Gem Saga immediately. Rating Breakdown Gameplay: 10 out of 10 + Classic RPG on Sony’s portable.

Crimson Gem Saga Review

GamerNode
15 June 2009
  • Excerpt: It can be a bit of a grind and won’t wow players with its originality,but Crimson Gem Saga from IronNos and Atlus is a fine traditional RPG experience that’s easy to play and features an excellent user interface and attractive presentation. Unlike the majority of traditional RPGs, Crimson Gem Saga is only partly serious. It features witty dialogue, colorful characters, and jokes that poke fun at games, pop-culture, itself, etc.
