May this game be a lesson about Japanese developers testing the waters of PC gaming.

In all honesty, there's no point in getting this game anymore since it has been abandoned by its developers out of a lack of faith in PC gaming.

As for why the port sucks, the game appears to run at an arbitrary resolution that caused my laptop's display to freak out, the game's recommended CPU requirement is a 3 GHz quad core (A MASSIVE jump from the PSP's underclocked 333 MHz processor!), and controller support is godawful.

Additionally, we at least know who to blame for making it completely acceptable to defend bad ports from Japanese developers.

I own this for the PSP Vita and PC, i have well over 1k+ hours dumped into the game over the years, It's an extremely replayable top-down rpg with the combat system being very akin to the 2d Zelda games, You compose your party from characters you create in the tavern, you can make them look however you want with the in game editor that is easy to use but very detailed, this editor is also available to make your own gear skins to apply to items gathered while slaying monsters or looting chest. There are Many jobs to choose from, base jobs as well as a few unlockable ones.
You're allowed to Reclass after you reach a certain point in the game, when you choose another job
you retain all abilities/magic, ''Magic circles'' and a fraction of your stats, There are 3 dungeon modes.
Story mode, Ran-Geon ''Random dungeon'' and Tri-Geon ''Triple Dungeons'' (Ran/Tri are both randomised Multi Floored dungeons) Really basic summation of the game, It's worth its ''Steep'' price in my opinion IF you have the option to get it on the PSP/VITA over PC do so, But if PC is your only platform then it's no big deal, it's just as responsive as the handhelds and emulated great as well. Thank you for taking your time to read the review, and good luck!

this game is simple yet engrossing. The play style brings you back to the start of the rpg erra and keeps you comming back for more. ther are a few cons however while the game is fun it is verry repetitive and at times frustrating hours of searching for that one simple uber drop can get old. but over all i think it is worth playing if you are a prefectionist.

Are you creative?Do you enjoy being the main character?Do you like dungeon crawing? Then oh boy do I have the game for you, this game is amazing since it not only involves you drawing your own character in an 8-bit world but manaing yourself around multiple dungeons with only your weapon and your witts! This is a fantastic game to have more if you are an artist!

A game worthy of the NIS seal, with great music, super deep customization and fun gameplay! Not for casual gamers, it gets really challenging as it turns into an action-roguelike in the last and extra dungeons!

This game has some very good gameplay concepts, as well as some very good cosmetic concepts. However, it isn't really worth the $19.99 you pay for it, but unfortunately, this game never seems to go on sale. Also, this PSP to PC port is quite shoddy.

Though just a bit too pricey for its kind in my opinion, it's one of the nicest RPGs I've seen on Steam, with nice character customization, a variety of weapons, and a lot of nice menu options, such as making a sort of "aid" with your other characters to increase your stats and defense.
The only con, is that after a while it feels repetitive, and as such, it's hard to really get through if you feel such. But another plus, is that it always draws me back, and I always love playing it again, even if it's just a silly experience.
Naturally, the controls flow well, and make it enjoyable to do everything, and with every citizen on the island, you'll have some nice dialogue, sometimes awkward, other times weird, but always nice.
And all the classes are nice too.

RPG with zelda combat and oodles of customization. The game is easy to learn, difficult to master with some pretty complex character customization. And of course it has the trademark NIS grind.

Overall a pretty enjoyable game, though the port kind of sucks. It's at the native resolution (it's a psp game so yeah...) has some issues in controller configuration (it took me half an hour to figure why buttons weren't binding...), and is locked at 30fps.

If you don't mind the graphics it'll be fun until it gets repetitve. Your mileage will vary on that; the regular dungeons mix things up pretty well, but if you do the randomly generated dungeons they seem to be quite similar most of the time and get old. Nothing like Disgaea's item world at all.

I need to play this some more.

Really wish NIS would stick Disgaea on the PC already.

A solidly-made action-Roguelike with tons of customization options for the artistically inclined and/or just simply obsessive.

Bit pricey, but worth it. Even if you don't bother tinkering with all the fiddly bits, you've still got a very competent dungeon crawler at its core.

Super fun. Reminds me of Secret of Mana and Mario Paint had a baby with Nippon Ichi as the surrogate mother. If you like that SNES feel to a game then check it out.

JRPG lover? You want ACTION-Based RPG and not turn-based? Want the pixels? Love to grind? Don't care about the story? Want to customize your charater's appearance from top to bottom? Even if the story is lackluster and if you're in doubt if this game works, just give the demo a shot.

A brief warning. This game is a PSP port and its' multiplayer features is not implemented fully at the moment because the PSP port's multiplayer works in ad-hoc mode (via playing locally). However, if you want a good JRPG game while your internet is screwed over, pick this game up immediately. People outside the JRPG realm?... Hard to say. There is a tutorial on it, but this game will not hold your hand once you get out of Trial Island which is more than enough for me.

This game can easily fill in 20-40~ hours of gameplay AT THE LEAST. It can go more when you want to reach cap on 8~10 different characters (Level 99 is the cap)

Oh, and not to forget to mention there's a Job Changer, so you can do the same grind, AGAIN! And max initial cap of any stat is 999. The universal cap is 9999. So I still got a lon♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ way to go.

The learning curve is steep when the "Magic Circle" system is into play. Basically, you can stack your sub-characters together with your main character (the one you physically play with), and the stats get transferred to your Main Character while special tiles like "Growth" will determine your Sub Character's Leveling Parameters.

If this looks like rocket science to you, this may not be the game to pass up and if you want a simpler game, I will forward you to Binding of Isaac or Hack, Slash and Loot. Heck, even Desktop Dungeon (its free, and not on Steam). For a roguelike with a slightly higher learning curve, I recommend Dungeons of Dreadmor.

In addition, I have a 4 1/2 hour stream of a first game impression by me if you want to check that out: http://www.twitch.tv/critical__hit/b/328931483

JRPG Fans wanting a grind? Insta-buy.
Everyone else? Wait for a big sale.

this game is fantastic. it has shown me what you can do taking the idea of customizing ANYTHING and turning it into a dungeon crawler. with a tinge of artistic ability, you can make amazing things. this game is like Drawn to Life meets Disgaea meets Diablo. LOVE this game, and would recommend it to pretty much anyone.

This game is actually very fun. Lots of gameplay, I am at 20+ hours and itis still exciting. Very nice customization, and overall good dameplay. MY only qualm is the fact that skills are a bit hard to use. Other than that, an excellent JRPG.

I love N1 games. The crazy amount that you can customize and upgrade your characters in their games is always so much fun. This game is no exception. This is basically an action based JRPG rougelike. If you enjoy dungeons, loot and fighting monsters, along with massive upgradability and customization to your characters and items check this game out.
