    With its brilliant gameplay style and wealth of customisation options, not to mention the fun and strategically minded combat, Grand Kingdom is a fantastic tactical RPG that truly showcases why the genre is perfect on PS Vita.

    An strategic title of excellence, Grand Kingdom delivers a deep, complex and challenging experience with tons of content and an active combat system that will keep you busy for months. Very recommended.

    Grand Kingdom is one of the most interesting things I’ve ever had on my Vita, combining so many ideas together and somehow making them all work. Like a weird looking dish at a foreign restaurant your cousin recommended, you might doubt it can be anything other than a huge mess, but once you get a taste of it, you’ll realize just how wrong you were.

    Grand Kingdom is unlike any other tactical-RPG on the market that I know of. For $40, you’re getting an adventure that can last you weeks if not months, though you may tire of it before you see everything it has to offer.

    It probably won't be a sales blockbuster, but Grand Kingdom deserves to be experienced by the tactical audience.

    A new series with loads of potential. It is hampered by a horrendous loading time and major content locked away online. If you can handle these two problems then the game is a lot of fun, and will have you grinding away for days to make your super merc squad.

    From my review at Pop Culture Beast:

    "Grand Kingdom is a game that will fly under the radar for many, but it really shouldn’t be missed if you are a strategy game fan. I’ve been playing the PlayStation Vita version (on a PSTV) of the game for a few weeks now, and I absolutely love it. But I am a huge SRPG fan, with Final Fantasy Tactics being my favorite game of all time. If you aren’t a fan of FFT, Disgaea, Tactics Ogre, and the like then this game may not be for you. Grand Kingdom is all about strategy. The battle system is the most unique I’ve seen in years, maybe ever. And before battle you move around the “field” (kind of like a world map) using a chess piece, plotting your route and using items — you aren’t simply moving from spot A to B. Both moving around the field and battling require a lot of thought, as well as party formation and item management. If you are into deep strategy JRPG’s then you should check this game out ASAP..."
