Yeah, it doesn't sound great, and it's mostly not. One the plus side, your wanderings lead you through a world that's one of the most attractive on the PSP. Somehow, the developers have packed in an intense level of detail into these 3D maps, more than most PSP games even attempt, and the tiny characters and enemies have a lot of colorful charm even if they're a bit too wee to see clearly. The screen-filling, appealing character artwork helps make up for that, too.
