Never did I think I would review a game without at LEAST getting far enough into it to get an actual opinion on it.
I was sitting with my girlfriend, playing this game for about a solid hour.
The plot wasn't anything too exciting, you're a mercenary with no respect to a king, the princess hates you, the princess turns into a monster, the monster dies and what happens to the princess? What happens to you?
Well, I don't know. And quite frankly I don't care anymore. I played for a solid hour and was given the opportunity to "fight" twice.
Now I'm pretty leanient on combat systems, if I think it has the potential to be fun, I'll give it a shot.
The combat system for the 2 "battles" i fought was humorous.
I had 3 buttons, X, Triangle and square. Each time I hit one the guy would charge and attack. So I hit all 3, and repeated twice. And I won. Literally I could have handed the game to my 3 year old button pushing nephew and he would have won sheerly on accident.
This game does NOT understand the balance of cutscenes and play time.
I've NEVER not gotten past the introduction to a video game before, and I'm almost 20. That's alot of video games, and in all my years no game has made me go "....I'm not watching these anymore....this is just a waste of freaking time".
If you can get past the cutscene, and if the combat changes, I'm sure this game is a 7 or 8.
I'm not waiting though, forget this game. Get another.

I had heard RAVE reviews stating that this game is one of the best RPG games for PSP, boy were they wrong.
I love detailed and great storylines, but thats all VPL was, it was like watchig a REALLY slow, REALLY bad anime. It has poor voice overs, no action, the only thing that made the game cool were the amazing CG cutscenes.
All in all, Square-Enix has really let me down with this one. It isnt fun to play, not one bit.
Well the thing i didnt like about this game was the have a limited time of period and when you are close to the end of the world you have to fight with one the gods that decides you should be eliminated and you can not even touch it that she end it up killing you in a second even though your characters are buid up in a high level it really sucks !!! they should do something similar to final fantasy games which are much better. well dont buy this game never you gonna have a hard time
