  1. Once every few years, a game comes along that changes all the rules. A game so unique and so groundbreaking that it not only redefines a genre, but redefines how we as gamers connect with our world. This ... is nothing close to that kind of game. But damn if it isn’t fun.

    Tasty! [July 2007, p.84]
  3. Some of the characters are very memorable and the game has a few scenes that are so bizarre they’re laughable, but the plot as a whole is pretty lame.
  4. It's worth a look if you're short of a good portable adventure, but it's not quite smashing.

    If its girly nature doesn't put you off, you'll have a good time. Otherwise, you'd better look elsewhere. [July 2007, p.85]

    As a fluffy fantasy adventure Gurumin pushes all the right buttons, although it's hardly serious RPG fare. [July 2007, p.98]

    Despite its control and camera issues and the general predictability of the game's structure (and laughable plot), it's a pleasant throwback to some of the better early 3D adventures.
  8. No matter how delightful main character Parin and her amusing dialog, dull combat amounts to little more than frequent taps of X and most gamers will breeze through the simple puzzles.
  9. As charming as Parin and the residents of monster town are, everything else is rather stale and clichéd, and that which has already been done better many times before it.

You can have some fun playing it. But I really didn't like the story, it's too childish. I don't know, maybe it was made for kids, and I think it would serve them well as their 1st rpg. Full Review »

I just bought it and I've played it for two hours non stop. The music is fun, the graphics put my psp to work, the storyline is interesting, the main character is adorable, and the style is addicting. Best psp game I own. I love the ability to free roam. The only downfall is that it's too easy at times, but there are upgrades for weapons and lots of cool special moves and combos. Full Review »
