    The biggest issue with the game, besides the slow pace, is that each level feels roughly the same, despite the shifting settings of each stage.
  2. When you play a game and find the most immersive sections are cut-scenes and the game isn’t called Metal Gear Solid, then you know something isn’t quite right.

As has been said, the game does start slow, but once you get into the game, you'll be eager to finish. The battle animations are fairly simple, but putting them on random appearance does give an nice break to the main action every once in a while and they can be easily skipped. Overall, I'd say this is a must have game for any PSP owner looking for a good strategy game. Full Review »

One of the best parts is exploring already conquered maps with new units that can fully exploit the resources tucked away in unseen corners. I loved all the R-Type games, and I love this though in a much different way. This is like the Mechwarrior boardgae realized in your pocket. Full Review »
