Like I said, Warriors of the Lost Empire is super-simple, fails at delivering a compelling story and is far from perfect, but if you're looking to hack-and-slash your way through hordes of enemies and upgrade some weapons as well as attributes, there are worse ways to spend your free time on the PSP.

At the end of the day, one could say that Warriors of the Lost Empire is a lackadaisical approach to the hack-and-slash role playing genre. Nevertheless, there are enough bright moments to overlook the game's several detriments, which include mediocre visuals, a poor camera, a confusing synthesis system, and an uneven difficulty. With the PSP lacking a true hack-and-slash adventure on its console, action starved players should give this one a rental, especially if you can find a friend to pick up the game as well. The fun battle system and interesting class system make for a fun time and the game's single player adventure is fairly long (between 15-20 hours). Just goes to show that a title can be good if it pretty much stands alone in its respective game group.

Warriors of the Lost Empire is a strong, if not supremely spectacular, addition to any dungeon hack lover’s gaming library. Strong combat, decent storytelling, some interesting upgrade mechanics and a ton of replay make for an entertaining experience. The only above average presentation and odd camera system may put off some, and if you’ve played all of the ten or twenty other dungeon hacks on the PSP you might feel some déja vu, but for those willing to overlook that, WotLE is a good time on the PSP, period.

Warriors of the Lost Empire is a game you'll want to like, but only hardcore fans of the hack & slash genre will have a very easy time forgiving its flaws. The gameplay is mediocre but not awful, the story is passable but unimportant, the sound is equal parts good and bad with a bit of unintentionally funny thrown in, the controls are cluttered, and the graphics simply leave you feeling as if you've been everywhere before. There is enough fun to be had that WotLE is the kind of game you can feel good about buying for $20, but full price is just too much to ask for it.
All in all, Warriors of the Lost Empire is a below average game. It has addictive combat, is very forgiving when the player dies, has decent audio and visual qualities, but its lack of a decent storyline, its horrible Item Box, and extremely repetitive gameplay really hurt it. It is a good title to pick up for players that enjoy hack-and-slash games, especially for those with friends that they could play with, as this title is loads more fun when played with another! For those that don't, it would be better to simply pass it up.

In the end, Warriors of the Lost Empire is a mindless, repetitive, and painfully generic dungeon crawler. Provided it doesn't drive you mad, the story mode will provide you with 10 to 15 hours of gameplay that can then be repeated on two harder difficulty settings or with any of the other classes. It even offers co-op ad hoc Wi-Fi play to tag team the dungeons with a friend, but ultimately, this is a game we wouldn't recommend to one person, let alone two.

Warriors of the Lost Empire had some good ideas, but none of them were implemented in the right way. Probably the closest thing to compare it to would be the Dynasty Warriors series. Its games are not known for being the most in-depth, but they at least strike the good balance between hack-and-slash and RPG that Warriors lacks. If they make a sequel, it could have some potential, but for now, I’m afraid it’s better for some things just to remain lost.
