Summary: I am sorely craving a kick ass solid Western style RPG for the PSP. I almost peed when I saw this game on the upcoming titles list several years back, which I think was also about the time I was finishing up the Neverwinter Nights trilogy on PC. OK, so my pen and paper D&D background has holes in it the size of, something, but despite that there have been so many formats and installments of the franchise I think every gamer particularly into this genre has been touched...
Summary: I have been trying to find this game for about a year now, all my local stores NEVER had a copy so when my daughter gave me an amazon gift card for my birthday I figured why not. I got the game and put it into my PSP and followed the tutorial (since i've never played it before). It was very much like Final Fantasy Tactics in its turned based playstyle with familiar elements like setting your characters on the map at starting places, taking turns between my characters...
Summary: Read the review : D&D fan not impressed, July 21, 2009 By Steven Rinck (Lisle, IL USA) He really hits a a lot of good points. Menu system is garbage at best, often find myself frustrated by it. Trading items from one character to another is like copying and pasting files from one folder to the next by keyboard alone. Playing you have two "speeds" to play at, Normal and "Chess mode".
IF you love turn based D&D turn based action this game is for you.. else not.

Summary: A lot of reviews are simply negative when compared to other games out there.. which is unfair since this is a unique game that stand out all by itself. The other turn based games people think of are Final Fantasy tactics is just not the same as this game. The style is different, and in my opinion, it far superior to the out dated ones in FFT.
Summary: Not nearly as fun as many of the reviews I read here at Amazon suggested. Although I did enjoy it (and was thrilled with the inclusion of psionics), the game is often tedious, having to move characters individually as opposed to by groups, which really slowed down the progression of the game (at times almost to a standstill). Also, the game is riddled with glitches.
Summary: The only other "tactics" game I've played before this was Final Fantasy (both the original and the DS), so I had high hopes going into this. I imagined a game laid out basically the same way except using the very nice D&D 3.5 rules set. Sadly, the execution was mediocre at best. The game isn't very user friendly. I know the rules for this edition by heart, and because of that I'm able to create characters and play the game proficiently.

Summary: If you're a hard core D&D player, you'll love the level of detail found in Dungeons & Dragons Tactics PSP. If you haven't played D&D before, it might take you a while to get a hang of all of the attributes here. This is a role playing game with every aspect under control. You don't just run in a mad ax-flailing rush as quickly as you can move your controller. Instead, each character can only move X blocks a turn.
Summary: D&D fans rejoice! Finally a game to implement the 3.5 rulebook with psionic characters! You can finally put those long dormant mental powers to use using all the characters designed in the d20 D&D 3.5 system in this game. The downside is, this is one your PSP, which isn't that great a platform for party-based/turn-based adventuring. I can explain. First of all, this game is amazing.
Summary: It took me a long time to get into this game. The first time I played it I became frustrated trying to move equipment around between characters. The interface is the worst I've ever seen in a video game. Once you learn how to work around the shortcomings of the interface, you'll find an enjoyable and fairly challenging strategy game. This game is probably strictly for D&D players, though.
