Fun!

  • Summary: This game kind of reminds me of Zelda, but I say that loosely because the controls are glitchy and loading takes some time when you are up against an enemy. I do like it! I haven't finished it yet but its still really fun! I like games like these. Games that aren't very popular but you still want to give it a try! I'm not one to complain about much. I just thought Id mention a few things that were out of place!

One of the best trips down Nostalgia Lane !

  • Summary: Update: Did a little research and here is the gist: This is actually a remake of Popolocrois I and II. What the developers decided on, was tweaking the original game into two 'books' in this game, then adding Popolocrois II as the 3rd 'book'. You can check out some Youtube video for the original, Japanese games. But to sum it up: Popolocrois on PS1 starts out differently, with Gami Gami Devil attacking the castle. Then you join up with Biggs and Wedge...

You MUST play past the first chapter!

  • Summary: There are good games...great games...and then there are terrible games. PoPoLoCrois is a great game that plays like a good game and looks like a terrible game. This game came out a LONG time ago...like 4 years ago. It was one of the first true RPGs for the PSP, back when the PSP was expensive and riddled with dead pixels. At the time we really had one other choice: Untold Legends, with its horrific load times.

The best old school RPG I've ever played...

  • Summary: First of all, why is this game listed in the Fighting section of PSP? Anyway, I'd like to say that for a game that's 10 years old it holds up suprisingly well. Here's why... Concept: Take two PS1 games of a cherished Japanese phenomenon, combine them and add a couple of extra fillers. Yes, the story is a bit on the typical cliche' RPG side but, it charmed the crap out of me. All of the characters are unique and they all play their part nicley.

A good (not great) lasting game.

  • Summary: You know, I weighed the pros and cons of buying this for about a week, but finally decided to... and im glad I did. This game is actually pretty fun, and it's faults don't make it as bad as some make it sound. One big complaint I heard were the loading times, but let me tell you, they just aren't that bad! Yeah, it loads, but it's not so bad that you want to throw it down and walk away.

cuuuute

  • Summary: and interesting. not too challenging, but very engaging. the game follows it's main characters from age 10 (and a very mature responsible age 10) into adulthood and maybe even involvement? (I dont know how it ends yet) My only beef with this is that gameplay is too short for a $40 game. However, by the time I realised it, I had already played through the entire thing - something I rarely manage with RPG's (I get bored before I'm done with them).

A really fun, cute little game

  • Summary: I love this game so much. The characters are drawn in a colourful, 2D style reminiscent of Final Fantasy's early games and Breath of fire 3. Everything moves in the world, the animations giving the characters depth. I particularly like the anime, studio Ghibli style cutscenes complete with american dubbed voice acting,especially the narrator. Narcia's voice when she says 'Retribution' is nothing short of hilarious, however.

Pietro's bedroom is at the back-left hand corner of the castle with the sea behind it. There is a short path above the sea to a small tower.

Nice game but too short

  • Conclusion: This is a lovely little game. It has everything and is a fun RPG , but it's far too short. Shame it was made with tiny characters, spoils these games.

Surely an undiscovered gem

  • Summary: I'm quite upset not to see any other reviews for this game. First released on the original PlayStation in 1996, this is your traditional 2d role-playing game. And very good it is too... Of course, I havn't fully completed it yet, but sat down to play it in bed last sunday night with no work in the morning. The PERFECT GAME FOR THIS OCCASION. I was engrossed for about an hour when tiredness took its toll.
