    Mimana Iyar Chronicle is a rather good game. The graphics aren't top notch, but they aren't horrible either. The voice acting has many memorable voice actors from other JRPGs, so it's sort of an all-star cast. The plot does take some time to start up, but once it gets going you get a sort of invested feeling (some time around the third dungeon). The characters may seem rather flat and one dimensional, but as with most JRPGs there is an underlying subtlety to their interactions with the main character. The battles are fun, but the loading times are a pain (usually takes 40-45 seconds to load a fight).

    Over all it's a good JRPG if you're willing to stick with it, and actually ENJOY the JRPG genre. (Better than Final fantasy, more original than Tales of)

  1. This slapdash role-playing game shows some promise early, but quickly becomes tedious and frustrating.

    With so many high-quality mainstream and indie titles on the gaming landscape this season, PSP RPG players would be best advised to skip Mimana Iyar Chronicle in favor of something better like Valkyria Chronicles 2 or Hexyz Force.
  3. There's not much to say: one of the worst titles in the already-not-so-good PSP JRPG lineup. Annoying combat, a going-nowhere story and flat characters is enough to stay away from Mimana Iyar Chronicles.
