Greatest PSP RPG to-date!

I really enjoyed this game. The graphics are top of the game for the PSP. The game play works well, and keeps you pulled in. The story is somewhat unique for a RPG. You don't start off investigating what is destroying a fantastic world. Instead you are a child trying to save the life of your best friend who has fallen ill due to some mysterious medical condition. In doing so you venture into a fantastic world to get your wish granted. I am compelled by the simplistic nature of your quest. The characters work great as well. (although I must admit that I am a fan of anime, and they are somewhat stereotypical characters of the genre) The battle system is good and gets deeper as the game progressess. Also there are slew of mini-games that accomplish many things.

The only thing that this RPG does WRONG, is that it borrows from every past good-RPG ever made. Is that bad? I don't think so, but it does lend a familiarity to the game. The closest game I can compare it to would probably be FF VII. Althouhg it borrows liberally from other RPG gems.

this is the second PSP RPG game that i played and enjoy as much as one of those big title games:)
Despite the old tradition turn-based battle system, this game feel as much enjoyable as any other good games :) The game looks pretty good as well. The adventure is enjoyable and the characters are all unique (battle and personality wise). The battle system is what i like most about this game. You have individual skill attacks and combine attacks (kind of like wild arms 5 but better..)There are one of the point that seem to be a problem with xseed published games, the lack of money. It's hard to earn a lot of money despite after going through a lot of battles (i guess the equipments are kind of expensive to afford). Despite some minor problems (not worth mentioned) and the money issue.. this game really help bring the enjoyment of playing video games again, especially after playing a lot of lame games recent. This game is definately worth the rental, i'll buy it too but when it's $20 :)

I liked this game. I put about 39 hours into it and beat every mission and side quests that could be beat. It was fun and kept me interested. I like the graphics and the fact that there are so many towns to visit. I say this is worth playing if you are a fan of this kind of game.
