I call Breath of Fire III "the little RPG that could." It's a bit slow, not extraordinarily stylish, and the basic mechanics are very traditional. And yet it was a treat to play through the game again. The above-average difficulty and solid skill and master systems make every level up and every completed dungeon seem like a major leap forward. The story takes some patience, but consistently gets better, especially during the adult phase of the game. On the PSP, the game looks and sounds crisper than ever before, and the fishing game is a nice distraction. If you did not get Breath of Fire III when it originally came out, then you missed a gem.

Die Idee ist klasse! Meine Partie darf sich die Angriffe ihrer Gegner abgucken und der putzige Held kann sich in Drachen verwandeln, dessen Erscheinung und Fähigkeiten meiner Wahl unterliegen. Optisch zeigt Breath of Fire zwar keinem aktuellen Titel die Zähne, dafür motiviert das Wandern durch die makellose Fantasywelt. Letztere hat aber ein Problem: Die wenigen frischen Ideen halten das Abenteuer nicht lange am Leben. So witzig das Fischen ein paar Minuten lang auch ist, so eindrucksvoll der Drache kämpft und so praktisch das Erlernen der generischen Attacken ist – die Entwickler schicken euch in eine lineare Welt von der Stange und bringen das Vorankommen mit den ständig auftauchenden Zufallskämpfen zu oft ins Stocken. Unter der uninspirierten Schale versteckt sich jedoch ein ansprechender Titel, der mit etwas mehr Liebe zum Detail einen leckeren Kern zum Vorschein hätte bringen können.

Painful and disruptive loading times may make you feel like you're blacking out every 60 seconds, but the patient will find in Breath of Fire III a long adventure that twists and delights.

The title is a neat little RPG that’s showing its age around the corners, but is still more engrossing than some of the PSP’s newer titles. Well worth the patience to see the story pan out, but probably one for the dedicated RPGer.

While it would be better to get new intellectual property, it's getting a habbit to port games every time a new console gets released. This Breath of Fire 3 is such a port and we'll tell you whether it's a classic in a portable format or completely useless

Voor de die-hard old-skool RPG speler die geweldige momenten beleven met backtracken, levellen en/of turn-based vechten in een semi-3D omgeving is dit spel fantastisch. Voor de mensen die elke minuut spanning of actie verwachten is deze game niet geschikt. Breath Of Fire III vereist veel geduld, heel veel vechten en lang wachten op voortgang in het verhaal.

Elitiste à bien des égards, Breath Of Fire III a bien du mal à convaincre sur PSP. Les problèmes de la version PSOne (de caméra notamment) n'ont pas été réglés et ce ne sont pas les quelques ajouts qui feront passer la pilule. Paradoxalement le début du jeu est bien plus difficile que la seconde partie, la lenteur inhérente à la fin des combats est énervante et le système de sauvegarde aurait gagné à être revu. Pourtant, le jeu mérite le coup d'oeil, ne serait-ce que pour le jeu de pêche (jouable en Multi dans cette version), les transformations en dragon ou le très beau design général.

For five minutes, after the PSP's drive has accelerated and settled into that battery draining hum, the revolutions per minute spinning a scenic tapestry of dark hewn rock, purple half light and cold cave womb around you, Breath of Fire 3 seems delightfully different.
