    tactics ogre is by the best of the bunch, but it can be brutal

    Final Fantasy Tactics is a great introduction to the PSP capable ones

    seriously check out growlanser wayfarer of time . it is AMAZING. ill do a quick run down on it. gameplay . a unique mix of rts and srpg that is unlike anything you've ever seen . story is amazing . modern rpgs should line up and take hints from this game . charcters are varied . unique and just plain great. game has 40 plus endings . 3 major plot routes . and 16 different romance routes for the modified route. 12 for the original route. but none for the dulkhiem route. it also features an alter fate system . where the choises you make and actions you preform can save the lives of diferent characters . I cant stress how unique and interesting this game is . seriously . to anyone reading this . if you have any love for rpgs . check this game out . it is the most underappreciated rpgs series of all time

    There are actually 3 parts.. But 3rd hasn't been officially translated. People are working on a patch, but don't know how far it got.

    The 3rd installment iirc was meant as an epilogue of some sorts.

    XSEED announced that they were working on the 3rd one, but they won't release it for PSP. Someone could make a patch, but the PC versions are much better, imo.
