    So it seems I'm back at the psp scene just as much stuff is going on, pandora battery and all.

    Currently I am busy with the very good Jeanne 'd Arc, but I was wondering which games I missed!

    I don't want to start a 'name your favourite game' thread here, but I'm looking for good RPG's with round-based combat, also hopefully a non-tactical game (so, not like Jeanne 'd Arc, but more like FF I to X).

    Also I am open to other genre suggestions, but please quickly state why the game you name is special.

    Thanks!

    I was gonna say Dugeons & Dragons but it's more a tactics game, in fact I think it's called D&D Tactics lol.

    I think you may like Valhalla Knights, seems to be what you described and I really enjoyed it. Monster Hunter Freedom 2 is not as much of an RPG as Valhalla, but has a few RPG elements.
    Theres quite a few more like FF Tactics remake, BOF 3, Tales of the World etc. but as you said not tactics I'm not sure if you'll like them or not. Don't forget (as if you would) the upcoming FF7 Crisis Core too [​IMG]

    I'm was excited about Crisis Core, but it's got action fights... ugh. The same reason I mostly don't like the Tales games.

    Valhalla Knights caught my interest, but I was put off by bad reviews. Now I'll try it - thanks!

    Actually I'm going to try D&D Tactics someday (regardless of the bad interface) but currently I need my J-RPG/FF-like fix [​IMG].

    Well if you don't mind booting up some PS games on your machine then I recommend Suikoden II, Crash bandicoot 3 and Spyro 3. =)

    Get Disgaea Afternoon of Darkness once it's out in English - It's a Tactics game, but an awesome one.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I had a look at Valhalla Knights, it seems the fights are action and quite chaotic - I might be missing something there.

    Suikoden I and II were extraordinary games, I already finished them on the PSX.

    So, there don't seem to be any good RPGs with round based combat, huh? [​IMG]

    Edit:

    I just started Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth, that seems to be much more what I was looking for.
