PSP gaming

tales.jpgI’ve bought Tales of Eternia. Well, since it’s the first jrpg game for me, I play it being unsophisticated user. Well it seems rather fine for me. Fast performance/loading, interesting story (so far). I’m not sure for battles though, they’re realtime and rather messy. You operate with main hero, other 3 members of the party are CPU operated. Battles plays like some kind of fighting but with stats in mind. Well, I’ll play it more and maybe will adjust battles so they’ll be more meaningful and effective. I really dig the oldkool gfx, calm colors and cute pixelart. This is what’s most attractive for me in these games, also the story develops rather unusual for me, it isn’t straightforward as in the most games – it’s like watching japanese movie.

I’ve some words on it in my psp games post, but reading reviews and actually playing the game are very different things. According to the reviews it has big loading times which destroy gameplay, in fact it turned to be rather acceptable. The gameplay is more proper than Tales imo, because all the battles are turn based and you can select weapons/items properly and without much fuss. Graphics is the same cute oldskool, the story is the same japanese weird kind which I like. So, I’m seriously looking forward buying this game too.

    Bleh, makes me want to buy a PSP, I like silly jap rpgs. =)
    In “Tales of” games the fighting is weird yeah, what’s most impotant later on is setting the AI of your team mates properly depending on combat situations, you can set up some interesting strategies that make combat much more interesting. In the end I also prefer turn-based combat though.
