Summary: In 2002, the Sting Entertainment-developed Yakusoku no Chi Riviera saw its release in Japan for the Japanese-exclusive handheld WonderSwan Color. Two years afterward the game saw a port to the Game Boy Advance, and the following year saw its North American release, thanks to Atlus, as Riviera: The Promised Land.
Summary: I loved the Gamboy version but the PSP version was even better. You can hear the characters voice acting during cut scenes, and when they use their Over Limit skills. The turn-based combat is excellent, the characters all had their own personalities and the bosses were a challenge to beat. I do enjoy a RPG that gives me a good challenge. I just wish there was a Ps3 version of the game of a sequel to it.
Summary: This game is certainly different from typical RPGs, but I'm not sure that is a good thing. The game feels more like a blend of action game with visual novel elements than a RPG. It has a lot of features I didn't particualrly like: You don't directly move your character across the screen, but you occasionally decide which way to go... but you cannot backtrack. Most of your magic weapons have limited uses.
Summary: i love it Considering the fact that I own the Gameboy Advance version of this game and gave it a good review sometime back, I decided to rent this version to see how much better this version is compared to my Gameboy Advance version and give you my honest opinion on it. In some ways, I'm glad that I did rent it first. Yet, seeing as to how I'm a big fan of Riviera, I'll probably buy it at some point but not for obvious reasons concerning this PSP version.
Summary: The main reasons I get RPG's is cause I like having big areas I can explore, and a good story. Riviera goes against these things but its not entirley a bad thing. The map consists of screens, when on a screen you can simply choose to go to the next screen by pressing the d-pad in the desired direction or press the X button to go into look mode, allowing you to observe various things on the screen.Somtimes things popup that werent there while you were in movement mode so...
Summary: well this game is a total let down because it is so easy and there are no cinematic scence just all pictures, but funny how it is dialogue through out the game though. it is a pretty straight forward game and no need a strategy guide or so whatever. i was disappointed with this game and expectly a game with a map to explore, but instead, the game proceed one scence after another. i won't pay over 20 dollars for this game, but guess what it's too late.
Summary: i like the story line and the plot but the only reason i wouldnt give it a five star rating is because of how hard it is to skill up. Once you've skilled up with all your weapons its hard to come across new weapons.
