    If you don't have the patience for these load times, something's wrong with you.

    It seems as though Atlus can't release an SRPG for the PSP without adding in some lengthy load times. Fortunately, in the case of Spectral Souls, the load times are easily overlooked. I nearly passed this game up complet... Read Full Review

    After you get by the loading times, a solid RPG.

    This is actually a good, solid RPG. The story draws you into a "diffrent world" in the middle of war. The graphics are slitely like Final Fantasy Tactics, only a little nicer. The game introduces new systems; l... Read Full Review

    Horrendous loading times/10

    I picked up this title cause I read the back of it and thought it was an interesting premise. Upon playing, the first thing I noticed is the ridiculously long and frequent loading times. I haven't played a game with this... Read Full Review

    A wonderful game that may remain unacknowledged because of load times.

    If you've been into handheld RPGaming for a long time, you have probably been amped for any chance to find something that could compete with, or at least offer a similar taste of the classic masterpiece that was Final Fa... Read Full Review

    As ruthlessly as the loading times try to ruin the over-all experience, this game still comes out as an outstanding SRPG

    Before I begin, take not that I will not speak of this game's story or its specific characters. Rather, I will devote most of my time to touch upon simple game-play elements and customization; as I find those categories ... Read Full Review

    Sweet game kept from being perfect by some minor issues.

    At first I didn't plan on getting this game because I thought it was gonna be a shooter because of a game with a similar name, only come to find out that Spectral Souls was a strategy RPG kinda like Tactics Ogre for the ... Read Full Review
