Mimana Iyar Chronicle (PSP)

 

There are some games that, even with a layer of glitter dusted over the top, simply can't hide the slapdash, unrefined nature that lies beneath. Instances of aesthetic competence give way to confusing level design; promises of action-packed combat go...

Mimana Iyar Chronicle Review

 

Aksys, mostly know for fighters Guilty Gear and BlazBlue, brings the same visually stunning two 2D art work from their previous games to this PSP RPG. However, with such wide selection of other JRPGs out there on the PSP can Mimana lyar Chronicle...

Mimana Iyar Chronicles is enjoyable with its anime-inspired characters and cast and its solid battle system. The game is a perfect fix for those wanting a quick level grinding fix. Aksys Games show that no matter how obscure the game is, it still can...

I Want Mimoney Back

 

Aksys has given localizing Mimana Iyar Chronicle a valiant effort, but the game is simply too trite to be worth the money.

Character portraits and a few anime cutscenes are pretty enough, but the sprites are stiff, the environments mostly barren and the world as a whole simply a mix of RPG tropes.

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

Sluggish, monotonous combat ; Repetitive dialogue causes the humor to wear out its welcome ; Tedious dungeon design exacerbated by a high random-battle rate ; Takes way too long for the story to go anywhere significant

Mimana Iyar Chronicles Review

 

Recently, developers have started to realize that handheld consoles are a good way to get RPG's out to the players so that they can have a lengthy form of entertainment on the go. Aksys Games, publisher of the Guilty Gear games on PSP and BlazBlue:...

Mimama Iyar Chronicles is just your typical regular Japanese RPG game. There are very few redeeming features that can save this game from being a flaming heap of garbage such as the Real-time battle system it has to offer. The strongest factor that...

Review: Mimana: Iyar Chronicle (PSP)

 

Out of combat, things are a bit odd. The game's graphical quality not only goes down some, but you'll also experience slowdown when walking around or exploring. Yes, there is no slowdown in the action part where twelve different characters are flailing...

Congratulations Mimana: Iyar Chronicle! You’ve just surpassed Sands of Destruction as the worst RPG released in 2010 so far, and that’s a pretty impressive feat indeed. If forty dollars for a twelve hour RPG wasn’t bad enough, Iyar Chroncile features...

Mimana Iyar Chronicles Preview

 

Although the RPG genre has finally started to hit its stride for the PlayStation 3, we've always been able to count on a continual influx of quality JRPGs on the PSP over the past few years. This is why whenever another looms on the horizon, the...

Even so, despite any available depth, you will still need some real-time reactions in order to excel in combat. IGN talks about one small issue when it comes to hacking ‘n slashing; it has to do with a character’s recovery time after unleashing a...

What's this? A new PSP RPG? Well, we'd better give it a looksee!

We really only scratched the surface of what Mimana is attempting to offer, but with the PSP hitting a serious dry spell -- particularly in RPGs (though it's getting better) -- we'll take any prospects we can get. Expect more updates as we delve into...

Mimana Iyar Chronicle

 

Mimana Iyar Chronicle is a console-style role-playing game with open exploration, strategic party management, and action-driven combat. Characters explore the game world from an angled, top-down perspective. In battle, the viewpoint switches to a side-on
