[psp] turn based strategy / rpg

are there any decent turn based strategy games available for the PSP ? also any RPGs that use turn based combat but DONT have random battles ?

Looking for something similar to either the x-com games or ffXII

Not played it, but Final Fantasy Tactics is highly regarded.

R-Type Tactics maybe something you like.

Personally, I have no patience and hated it.

I quite liked RType tactics, not too shabby although some of the battles can drag on too long

I love Turn based but have only found 4

1. Jeanne D'arc - (brilliant!)
2. R Type Tactics (strong)
3. FF Tactics (poor port, but good game if you can get over how poor it looks)
4. XCom using the ps1 to psp convertor - ooooo yeh

Can the term PSP in title be replaced with multi ?

Anyone able to advise what games area available for all current platforms which feature

turn based combat and non random battles ?

my fav games of all time are

X-COM
Fallout(s)
Jagged Allience
Final Fantasy XII
Puzzle Quest

Have tried Jeanne D'arc and Disgea and just did not "get" them (not a big fan of things that are too stylised like them) and also did not get on with FF Tactics

<-UFO addict

On the PC get Silent Storm which is a WW2 rip off of xcom/jagged alliance etc action point based. IMO the use of cover actually makes the battles better than XCOM though there is none of the base building/research side. A warning though: the battles can last for hours.

Fire Emblem on the GBA/DS is very good and the only non XCom style turn based game I'll be recommending today! It's Advance Wars crossed with an RPG. You keep all your units from one map to the next and they gain experience and level up from kills.

There's a newish PC game called UFO Extraterrestrials that got pretty slated in the press but with all the user mods (which are now available in one mod pack called BMan's) it plays as a good remake of xcom.

Finally there's an open source UFO remake that I can't give much opinion on cause I haven't tried it in years: http://ufoai.sourceforge.net/

There are rumours the Bioshock guy is working on an XCom remake and if he is hopefully the play won't be too far removed from the original as he is a self confessed XCom fanatic.

Surely the PSP version of Disgaea is what you want?

Meanwhile the soon coming Dissidia: Final Fantasy looks stunning but with all FF (bar tactics) it'll have random battles.

I thought Dissidia was a plain old Street Fighter-style fighting game?
