Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: The first RPG for PlayStation that really blew me away was Final Fantasy VII , and the second that I remember was Lunar . Especially considering all the dazzle that was Final Fantasy in those days, how did a retro RPG title manage to make such an impression on me? There was story, creativity in design and fantasic music for starters. Then, underneath was a great engine for gameplay and battles and a huge world to explore.

  • Excerpt: References to candy are used often when discussing media such as video games. For example, high quality graphics and stylish visual design are referred to as "eye candy." It is with this candy mentality in mind that I review PoPoLoCrois for the PSP, because PoPoLoCrois is like a Marshmallow Peep candy. Peeps look teeth-rottingly cute and are somewhat fun to eat with their gooey texture but are ultimately an empty calorie snack without any discernible taste to them.

  • Excerpt: When you have a system that’s got a full library of games that consist of extreme sports and driving titles, it’s nice to see some variety in the form of an RPG once in a while. Especially when you're competing against the rather RPG-heavy GBA. PoPoLoCrois lends itself to being on of the few RPGs available for the PSP and while it may not be a 3D powerhouse, it harkens back to a time when RPGs were simple, easy to follow, and random encounters were plentiful.

  • Excerpt: PSP gamers are hungrier for RPGs than Cookie Monster is for chocolate chips. With that said, even a traditional, generic RPG can make some noise. G-Artists' PoPoLoCrois is that traditional, generic game that somehow manages to captivate while being a generally solid RPG. It's cute, it's relatively quick, and it's simple enough that you won't be reaching for a strategy guide. But it is also very bland and the random battles simply have to go.

  • Conclusion: PoPoLoCrois is a very portable-minded RPG thanks to the auto-save option and easy learning curve, but don’t get the idea that it’s short. This title comes with a nice lengthy 30-hour quest. It’s not as drawn out as something on a console, but it’s a long adventure nonetheless and there’s a lot to see and do along the way. The main drawback is that once it’s over, it’s over—there aren’t many reasons to replay it once the main quest has been completed.

PopoloCrois

Portable Review
30 October 2005
  • Excerpt: Every once in a while we in the states are blessed with some of the bizarre, cute, or otherwise twisted games that entertain the Japanese public. Games like Katamari Demacy and Super Monkey Ball immediately come to mind. PoPoLoCrois is one of those games. Rather than just another strange puzzle game, it’s more along the lines of Dragon Quest. PoPoLoCrois isn’t so much whacky or strange as it is…unique. It’s adorably cute but not ridiculously stupid.
