squarezero's comments:
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

No, if u mean the dialogue bug. It still was a awesome game. The experience from the voice acting/storyline is simply amazing.

I am usually more into action RPGs like Zenonia, Zenonia 2, Inotia 2, Illusia, etc. but this does look quite good and it has caught my attention. Would someone new to turn based combat RPGs be able to pick up the combat system in Crimson Gem Saga fairly well?

Absolutely. It has some RT elements too, BTW, like the ambush system or critical combos. Production values are great.

Favorites: Puzzle Quest, The Quest, Sway, Glyder, Reign of Swords, Flight of the Amazon Queen

Great game

Love this game. I love RPGs and have been thoroughly unsatisfied with several of the existing subpar action-RPGs that are somewhat deficient in the storyline and dialogue. This one rocks with the skill tree, the dialogue, good voice-acting, and leaving out silly quests like "fetch 5 bones, then fetch 10 bones, then 15...".

I just wish the porting wasn't subpar in itself. I love the voice dialogue but it's horribly ruined by only some of it being played and at the wrong time. The menu system is annoying in that it's a bit too easy to make the wrong move.

But, as others have said, those are easily forgettable with the sheer quality of the rest of the game. I'd gladly buy more RPGs that are as good as Crimson Gem Saga. Plus I love watching the intro video every time I start playing.

And I consistently use Spinel thanks to her Level 3 Wind Slash (or whatever it's called). It's a nice cheap way to do damage to clear all the enemies after an ambush.

It's a great game on PSP. I just wish it would be updated for Retina displays on iPhone.

I would play this game a lot more often if it had multitasking. Seems they have not done such a good job with post release support in my opinion.

This game is unplayable. It needs an update badly.
