Cladun: This is an RPG - PSP Game Review

When I first played Nippon Ichi Software's classic-style dungeon adventure, Cladun: This is an RPG, at that time I was astounded to find myself gazing at the end credits about fifteen minutes after starting the game for the first time. As it turns out, there is a portal in this chromatic realm that allows you finish the game in any way you want. As you might imagine, the ending you have after leaving everything unsolved isn't especially amazing, so you will could want to play it for a wee bit longer. Fortunately, the "wee bit longer" is quite challenging but still give you an pleasurable chunk of time. The multiplayer support in this game is also slightly unsatisfactory. While I really appreciate how developers are trying to squeeze in this feature, the game slow down along even when there are only a couple of players connected through Ad Hoc. It is certainly not playable in this condition, having the versus and co-op options is wonderful -- but it could be better.Although Cladun is developed for a niche in gamer community and the existent battle environment is quite simple, this retro dungeon adventure is a blast as a whole. I love the multiple soundtracks and the art style, so it could be a game that you should keep in your PSP’s memory stick permanently.
