Spectral Souls is a true sob story. There's a perfectly serviceable game here, buried underneath one crucial problem. Everything you strategy RPG fans love is present - combo attacks, crisp artwork and a fairly decent soundtrack make it extremely tough to hate. But here we are, refusing to put the time in. So far, publisher NIS hasn't done too well on the PSP, but its PS2 entries are hot stuff - so go play Disgaea 2 instead.
