Summary: The second game is much better, but this is still fun! It doesn't deserve such a low rating, but let be known this is no masterpiece. It's much more difficult than its predacessor and the enemies aren't as balanced. The bosses are near impossible for first-time action gamers, but players familiar with hardcore psp games won't be scared. If you love robots and weapons its a great game.
Summary: This is the first PSP game i bought and about 20 games later still the worst. I have never played a game as simple as this one. There are toms of weapons and the graphics are descent but there is nothing that would make you want to continue. I would honestly rather play pong with myself.
Summary: I originally picked up this first version of the game used with some trepidation from various reviews and comments from game stores. I wasn't expecting very much, however, what I found was a totally addicting fighting game. As you progress through the game you become more adept at what weapons to carry and use. I liked the game enough that after I finished it, I purchase the sequel and recently completed it also.
Summary: First of all, some one said that the sound was terrible. I guess they were deaf or something because the soundtrack to this game is the best I have ever heard in a game. A lot of people complain that this game does not use the analog stick, but like another reviewer stated, people have been playing games with directional pads for decades, so who cares. The graphics are some of the best you will see on a the PSP, and the art gallery is stunningly beautiful and creative.
Summary: I think this game is good.Some other people may not like it but I think it's really cool.I also heard of Rengoku 2 The Stairway To H.E.A.V.E.N for the PSP soon.And also Rengoku The End of the Century for the Playstation 3.Anyway this game is good and not so hard.I'm on the 2nd floor and I have really good equipment that is hard to get.I say get the game.
Summary: I see a few reasons people might have problems with this game. 1. The controls. Yes, it doesn't use the analog nub, BUT the D-pad controls work just fine. People have managed to use the D-pad for movement for over a decade; all of a sudden it makes a game unplayable? Yeah right. Trust me, you'll get used to the controls after 15 minutes. 2. Too many things to keep track of.
Summary: The cover of this PSP game looked so cool that I just had to get it ... even before the price came down. But once I got it, and had it inserted to play, the disappointment mounted. First of all, the menu when you're trying to upgrade your guy is SOOO complicated. I got lost very easily, and wasn't at all sure what I was supposed to do. So I ended up just hitting things randomly. Second, the movement of the character around the environment is so ... BIZARRE ...
Summary: I have been renting alot of games since I got my PSP and this is hands down the worst of the lot. Like a previous reviewer said, the intro looked cool, but when you get to the game there is alot of disappointment. First, the game play is terrible - the D pad is almost useless to use with any accuracy, and it's hard to control.
Rengoku is an awsome game depending on who you are

Summary: Rengoku is about a robot trying to get to the top of a tower. On each level of the tower you enter a map wit rooms containing enemies. after you reach the rooms (there are very few in each level) a warp is opened to the next level containing a boss. The game repeats with a new level them boss and so on. The maps aren't repetitive and in the begining the game is a little hard. But as you progress through the levels you aquire more weapons which make the game easier.
