Excerpt: Nippon Ichi Software has developed or at least produced several of my favorite games of the past ten years. From Disgaea to Prinny and Cross Edge, NIS has never failed me. That is until now. You see for years Gust Corporation would make great games such as Atelier Iris and Mana Khemia, and NIS would localize them to America. This has worked very well for the two. However, Mana Khemia was a game made for the ps2 and as such does not port well to the PSP.
Excerpt: Mana Khemia: Student Alliance is a port of the PS2 RPG Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis . While a decent game in its own right, nothing about the game screamed, "Play me!" much less, "Port Me!" Even though it is billed as an "enhanced port," most of the added features end up killing the few good things the PS2 version did right.
