    Nice game, but lacks depth and speed after a while. Too bad they can't leverage the potential of this game.

    Nice game, but lacks depth and speed after a while. Been playing for a few days and think the graphic design, music, voices and look-n-feel of the game is really nice. However, combar is slow and the...

    The only game that I actually agree to GS review.

    Rated on April 08, 2010 by epaacccc

    It pains me to say this, but this game is indeed simple and uninspired. I'm not saying that this game is not worth playing or anything, but to be honest it is bland and nothing special. The game world...

    Crimson Gem Saga is another in a recent line of "pretty good, but not great" role playing games from Atlus.

    Nice presentation does not make up for lackluster characters and wearying battles.

    Rated on June 09, 2009 by ricothehat

    While certainly not a bad game if taken on it's own, Crimson Gem Saga becomes a disappointment when compared to similar games. There is a part of me that says games and other media should not be held...

    Crimson Gem Saga would have been a good game if it weren't for the irritating dungeons and tedious grinding.

    Rated on June 28, 2009 by XXI_World

    It's been a while since PSP last got a turn-based RPG like this, and many people would be looking forward to it. At first glance, Crimson Gem Saga (CGS) looks like a great game with its beautifully dr...

    Old school RPG but somewhat broken.

    Rated on July 12, 2009 by max_wolfstein

    Pros: Good graphics, interesting characters, and good battle system layout. Cons: Forces excessive level grinding, repetitive music/monsters, boring/mazelike dungeons. Crimson Gem Saga has good ...
