It's a disaster, and should be played by absolutely no one. If you want to play the original PS2 game, by all means, do so. It's a simple, cute little alchemy-driven RPG that's not quite up to the level of some of Gust's other games, but certainly decent its own right. The PSP version is something you give to people you absolutely despise, like mortal enemies or those convicted of war crimes. On second thought, not even they deserve the kind of torture this game brings.
