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.

  • 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.

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.

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.

Crimson Gem Saga review (PSP)

HonestGamers
24 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Lately, a number of RPGs have come out that use twists (or sometimes outright contortions) on the traditional formulae to set themselves apart. I've enjoyed a number of these games, but sometimes, it's nice to go back to the roots of the genre, and remember how the traditions got started.

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.
