Gungnir review

  • Conclusion: In short, if you're the kind of player who's sunk hundreds of hours into similar titles, you'll likely feel right at home with Gungnir. If you never made it past the windmill level in Final Fantasy Tactics, you may want to stick to something a bit more user-friendly.

  • Excerpt: Gungnir is a strategy RPG in the same vein as Fire Emblem , Final Fantasy Tactics , and Tactics Ogre: Let us Cling Together . The story is concocted of pretty much every fantasy trope you can think of. As Giulio, you're a bandit and a rebel against the Empire.

  • Excerpt: Gungnir is the most unique strategy role playing game this reviewer has ever played. The game play system is one of the most deep, and difficult to comprehend. We start out as a group of bandits who eventually rise to take on an evil empire.

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: We recognized Gungnir immediately. It has all the trappings of an epic adventure, with anime scenes at the beginning and stitched throughout the game. Even though the graphics are sprite-based and simplistic, you’ll find lots of static art and interstitial dialogue in place between interactive...

  • Excerpt: Gungnir is the story of an oppressed rebel group striking back at the empire that rules over it. The drama is certainly compelling enough, as we like to imagine an underdog winning rights and respect.
  • Pros: Landing that perfect AoE spell attack!
  • Cons: I have to break open chests over multiple actions? With a rogue in the party?

  • Conclusion: With the onset of the PS Vita, most people would think that PSP games would start to slow down and stop coming out, with developers favoring the Vita. That isn’t the case however, as JRPGs of all kinds have been finding their way to the PSP and into the hands of Western gamers.

  • Excerpt: It's a funny name, ain't it? I had to check Wikipedia to figure out what "Gungnir" actually is. Apparently, it's the name of a legendary spear in Norse mythology. Not just any spear… Odin 's spear. The king of the gods. The champion of champions. The Big Kahuna. The Giant… Giant.

(PlayStation Portable Review) Gungnir

The Entertainment Depot
28 June 2012
  • Summary: Gungnir is a decent tactical-RPG that suffers from poor balance and pacing. It would have made a much stronger offering on the PS Vita, which it should be compatible with at some point, but as it stands, there are much better games on the PSP for fans of the genre.
