Crimson Gem Saga

 

Crimson Gem Saga's cheery veneer quickly wears away to show a simple, uninspired role-playing game.

Unique, pleasant look ; Relaxing field exploration ; Charming music

Irritating dungeon designs ; Too much grinding ; Very basic combat and boring fetch quests ; Predictable plot ; Lacks originality

Crimson Gem Saga

 

The PSP finally gets a ‘must have' RPG for itself. The RPG genre has not been kind to Sony's portable powerhouse. The UMD format has butchered more than its fair...

Gorgeous visuals ; Minimal load times ; Simple, yet addictive ; Interesting story

Forgetting to save ; Level grinding can be tedious

The PSP is home to the most traditional RPGs this generation. Good traditional RPGs to boot. The latest traditional RPG to hit the PSP is Crimson Gem Saga from Atlus. As an Atlus game, you know to expect top-notch localization and beautiful...

RPGs, much like summer action movies, are extremely predictable. They center on a world changing event that you must protect or defend or suffer unimaginable consequences. At this point in the history of video games, it isn't about how original your...

The only negative aspect of Crimson Gem is that it can feel too familiar and too well tread. There are only a few, marginal improvement to the traditional RPG gameplay formula in the way that fighting is more streamlined. You'll be grinding levels and...

There is a beautiful and wonderful world waiting for you to explore in Crimson Gem. It is rare to find likable, flawed characters that drive a predictable story that keeps you coming back to find out what happens next. The traditional gameplay doesn't...

Crimson Gem Saga

 

It can be a bit of a grind and won't wow players with its originality,but Crimson Gem Saga from IronNos and Atlus is a fine traditional RPG experience that's easy to play and features an excellent user interface and attractive presentation.

It can be a bit of a grind and won't wow players with its originality, but Matrix Software's Crimson Gem Saga is a fine traditional RPG experience that's easy to play and features an excellent user interface and attractive presentation.

Crimson Gem Saga Review

 

Don't let looks deceive - Crimson Gem Saga is deceptively challenging

An enjoyable adventure for the PSP, Crimson Gem Saga does have flaws in its storyline and dialogue moments, but the game does a great job of delivering a thought-provoking adventure. Killian is a bit arrogant to start with, and you may not initially...

Crimson Gem Saga

 

With the recent release of role playing games on every console it takes the PSP to offer one of the best I have seen this year. Atlus is giving us an old school role playing game on Sony?s portable, one that is comparable to last years phenomenal Brave...

Is this the game of the year? I am not sure about that but I may have found my top game of 2009 on the PSP. Crimson Gem Saga is a role playing game fans dream. This is the kind of RPG we grew up with during the time when role playing games hit their...

Crimson Gem Saga

 

Crimson Gem Saga is a straightforward role-playing game, designed to offer players hand-drawn visuals, a classic swords-and-sorcery storyline, and traditional turn-based battles. Gamers take on the role of Killian von Rohcoff, a perennial also-ran who get
