Overall, it feels more like an aspiring game designer's hobby instead of a professionally developed product, but that's not all bad. The AI-controlled enemies are dirt stupid, but walking them into traps or luring them into shooting each other never gets old. And while the camera is completely manually controlled, it beats constantly fighting with one that automatically swings around to unusable angles. Also, as unpolished as Lost Empire is, it's also one of the few action-RPGs on the PSP. If you've got a soft spot for the genre, you might be able to overlook its faults and have some fun, but everyone else should probably give this one a pass.
