Did a great job at staying true to the first game. I'm 5 hours into the game and I hardly scratched the surface. Great turn based RPG for the PSP. Havn't tried the multiplayer feature but I'm sure it would be great.
Okay, so this game was actually pretty good. The gameplay is solid, with plenty of room for you to be a grindhappy level junkie or a story-driven plotmonger. The graphics aren't the prettiest I've seen on the PSP, but are far from terrible. The turn-based shooter concept is very refreshing in a market full of dry, old concepts. The only real issue I have with the game is that the voice acting can be hit or miss, and that is only in the cutscenes that aren't fully narrated by the VA's. Soundbites don't always do justice to characters, especially when you've got such a huge collection of characters such as this game. But all in all, the game is very solid, with a steady learning curve, an inventive play-style, and solid leveling system.
