Summary: Ok many of you have heard of the game world of warcraft and final fantasy, its kinda a middle of this! Ok here is my review the graphics are ok but not PSP standard graphics like Final Fantasy Crisis Core, those are the best on the PSP ive seen. The challenge is okkk, the flaw with it is that all u really have to do to complete the game is press X, you barely need any skill for it. The lenghth is very excellent, its the best part of the game.
Summary: ...and I think I am close to being done. If Sony allowed "infrastructure" connections, this would be a much better game. I don't ride a schoolbus with a bunch of kids who all play this game (I have not ridden a bus for over 30 years) so the wi-fi feature is useless to me. So far, every maze in the game can be negotiated with a "follow the right wall" feature.
This is a great handheld game, but it could be better.

Summary: This is just my third game purchased for the PSP, and because Diablo II is one of my favorites on the PC, this seemed like a good choice for some fun gameplay on the go. For the most part, this is a fun game... but a few things are missing that have made the experience a bit frustrating at times. I think the game would be better if the Map view included a compass. There are many times when I was exploring a level in search of a certian baddie or another gateway...
Whole lotta gameplay, not much depth...but who cares?

Summary: For the most part, Untold Legends has gotten a bad rap from game review sites like Gamespot. Much of their beef has to do with the game's lack of depth...which is a valid criticism. So far I've played Untold Legends for a total of 12 hours and I can barely remember the names of important NPCs, locations or the types of quests I've been on. But, really, I can say the same for games like Diablo 2 or Fate. .
Summary: Now, I'm not a big fan of RPG's but, this one is very well done and entertaining. The story is a little boring and the loading is arduous. The screens are kind of cool though, but they get old fast. On the goodside, the game is addictive. Some of the enmies are original while some see to be just thrown in and unoriginal. The gameplay is good and the camera is easy to figure out. I just finished and I was never bored throughout the game. Very good , I reccomend it.
Summary: When first get your PSP you have a big question ahead of you, what game do I buy first? While this game may not be the best launch title overall, people who enjoy games like Diablo and Baulders Gate will find it is worth the money. Brotherhood is a hack and slash in the style of The Two Towers and Return of the King with RPG elements (i.e. upgrades and armor) and magic as well. There are four selectable classes but really two main types, melee and magic.
Summary: I've rented this game twice and have dedicated a fair bit of time to it. From what I can tell on the Map I'm about half way complete. This game has been very satisfying to play as an RPG. I was a little skeptical at first because the opening Prologue is reminiscent of the 1985 Nintendo era with still sketches, poor music, and mediocre scrolling text. After you get through a laughable Prologue the game play is quite good.
Summary: When I first picked up this game, I was a bit worried since some users rated it as average or poor. Then after getting started with it on my PSP I feared for the worst. The prologue and sketches made me think the game was indeed a dud. To my surprise I couldn't have been more off target! Once I built my character (knight) and started gaining weapons, strength and powers - the game has done a full 360 degree turn. I absolutely love the gameplay.
