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: The Good: Voices, mini-games mix up gameplay, lengthy story, easy to use battle system, being able to re-direct your path is great, interesting story The Bad: Voices can be grating and irritating after awhile, music isn't anything memorable, not being able to move and level up in typical RPG fashion may turn most off, 2D sprite graphics makes the game feel really old, difficulty is widely unbalanced Who would have known Atlus would be the one to finally answer gamers...
Summary: I bought Riviera the day it came out on a Nintendo system, because I knew that it would have a limited print run. I was right - a month after Riviera came out, I could not see it anywhere. This PSP game gives people who waited too long to try to grab the copy they missed. Riviera is a game filled with choices. Do I spend time looking for treasure, or do I move on? The time spent on even mundane decisions affects what happens in the game.
Summary: Graphics: 7.5/10 PSP > GBA -- The graphics of Riviera are simple, a throwback to the days of sprite-based RPGs. That said, the graphics are very well done. Though the animation and details of the sprites of the characters and enemy are simple, they are well done. The environments of the game are very simple backdrops, but again they are very well made. What really makes the game pop graphic-wise, however, are the CG animations and the character portraits.
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.
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: A while ago, my friend told me to try this game. Well, now I've tried it (well, the PSP version, not the GBA!) and I am VERY impressed with it. The leveling system and the overall game is very different from traditional RPGs, so enjoy this unique and awesome game!

Summary: I bought this game, because I thought the graphics were awesome and the battles were pretty cool. The game's got a lot of dialogue and sound effects, but I did not like it. Even though I am an avid RPG fan, this game is just slow and really palys like one of those pop-up books in a story you follow through with not many choices to make, but to see where the story leads fighting battle after battle. I don't recommend this game for new gamers or old ones.
Summary: 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.
