Fair

Repetitive

I was looking for a game on the PSP similar to Zelda. Gurumin was mentioned on more than one forum so I gave it shot.

This game has a lot of character. Parin is a great protagonist, full of humor and attitude. The supporting characters provide laughs. The story is lighthearted and fun.

The gameplay is where it falls flat. The whole game is very repetitive. You go into an area and try to clear it. To ace it you have to break every barrel, open every chest, and defeat every enemy. The problem is the boss battles. They are surprisingly tough. To improve your chances, you will need to buy supplies and improve equipment. That means going through dungeons multiple times if you're stuck.

It was tiresome. I could not beat the last boss. The controls in the game are not the most responsive and I felt there were some attacks that were unavoidable.

Someone with more skills than me might enjoy it more. I was playing on normal difficulty. I did not have the desire to start over on the beginner difficulty.

When I first started, I thought this was a game for younger kids. But when further I went in the game the more I enjoyed it. With Cutesy Anime graphics and excellent voice acting for a PSP game, I was amazed. However the game can become a little tiring since the missions become similar and the its gets frustrating when you have to find a Npc who isn't in his designated spot.

Best Feature I saw was the active costume, Getting to choose what accessories to where and see them on at all times.

After many many years of not playing video games I just purchased my PSP and figured I would rent some games before purchasing them. When looking for my first game to rent I fell upon this game. I was a bit iffy but it had great reviews so I figured why not. I have not put the game down. Every chance I get I play it. Finally a cute female character. This game is kinda mega manish, Zeldaish etc. It's a great adventure game where you can talk to different characters, explore little towns cities objects etc. There is also a lot of fighting in this game where you acquire different attacks by buying them. This game is great for a both girls and boys. Heck, if I played boy games like mario bros. mega man, sonic zelda etc a boy can play this game (= This game is definitely worth it and if you love adventure games I am sure you will fall in love with this one.
