Gungnir

 

The PSP may be in its twilight, but that hasn't stopped some niche developers from releasing quality titles for the doomed portable. Atlus and Sting have long been supporters of Sony's handheld and have always released some quality titles. Their...

Gungnir is a fine addition to the Dept. Heaven series of Sting games. It's got enough content to last a good 30+ hours, and offers an immense challenge that even tactical professionals will have a hard time tackling. Coupled with an intriguing story...

Review: Gungnir for PSP

 

Gungnir continues Sting's Dept. Heaven storyline and offers PSP owners another, unusual JRPG to add to their game libraries.

Gungnir Review

 

A deep SRPG set in Norse mythology, but the real question; is it any good?

Deep strategic battles ; Cohesive story and setting

Overly complex mechanics ; Limited scope of presentation ; Story is a little bland

Gungnir Review

 

For some, Gungnir might be a game that has been helpfully stripped down to the basics, with no extraneous frills to artificially extend gameplay. For others, it will feel like a barebones effort with some problematic aspects to its battle system. Your...
