Default Crimson Gem Saga: Atlus/IRONNOS JRPG

A 400+ Mb download and at $9.99 half the price of the PSP version.

EDIT:
The Dev has come up with a way to keep fans updated with what happens with the game on the App Store and had the idea for fans to post screenshots with the game moments they have problems with on the game's Official Fan Page http://www.facebook.com/CrimsonGemSaga. Technically you send it over email from your device and then they put it on the fan page to resolve their problems.




EDIT2: Video taken by user Chuck showing battles and some voiceovers. Played on an iPad

I never played this on the PSP. Anyone that has that can recommend this?

I know, I know. I've known about this game for months and read all the reviews -- and in fact, I discovered the iPhone version by accident. But, of course, it's from a source that is not well known in the App Store (though the original game was released by Altus, which is up there with Square Enix as a publisher of RPGs).

From all I've been able to find out about the game, this is the second serious new JRPG to be released on the platform (with the first being Chaos Rings).

If I don't know that Secret of Mana is coming as well I'd buy this right now. Looks really good and like a serious asian RPG, unlike Zenonia or Luna Story.

I'm doing my best to keep an open mind. (It's just so darn hard! ) Look forward to reading your impressions once you've formed some.

My thoughts exactly.

I'm hoping it's not compressed. GTA is 232mb but is actually somewhere near 600 on your device

Err seriously? Not sure what to think about this. I bought it on PSP shortly after it came out last year. The gameplay is pretty straightforward, I liked the levelup/skill tree bits - certainly spent a lot of time in that tower earning xp between stretches of storyline. However the game got pretty stale after 15-20hours of play. Battles flowed almost always the same, and the story - though quirky - was too few and far between. $10 isn't bad if you like JRPGs, but I can't expect this will perform well on the iOS platform.
