Phantom Brave: Hermuda Triangle Review

GamerNode
17 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Originally released for the PlayStation 2 all the way back in 2005, Phantom Brave has returned, this time on the PSP. Aptly titled Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle , the game’s name is pretty much the only thing that has been changed. The Hermuda Triangle is, for all intents and purposes, a direct port of the original, even lacking the additions and tweaks made for its Wii sibling Phantom Brave: We Meet Again .

Down in Hermuda, the Pale Blue Sea

  • Excerpt: Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle marks the second time that NISA has ported its gridless tactical RPG, originally seen on the PS2. Those that did play the first port over to the Wii, We Meet Again , will no doubt be wondering what more new additions have been made to attract them to this version.

  • Conclusion: Phantom Brave is rated T for Teen with ESRB descriptors of Blood, Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, Mild Suggestive Themes, and Use of Alcohol. The 2-D sprite-based graphics really tone down the blood and violence, so it’s really not that bad at all. The language, suggestive themes, and alcohol use are mostly in the text only. Even though characters have spoken voice, strong reading skill is still required for all the menus and such.

Fire of Review, Reveal my Heart: Psycho Burgundy!

  • Excerpt: Two types of people are interested in Phantom Brave: We Meet Again . There's a joke in here somewhere, but also a suggestion on how to read this review. Those who first played Phantom Brave on the PS2 should feel free to jump to the final four paragraphs, where the Wii-exclusive content is explored in depth. First-timers interested in NIS America's gridless tactical RPG should continue reading as usual; all will be revealed in time.

Ghost of a Chance

  • Excerpt: When Nippon Ichi seemingly appeared out of nowhere with their quirky, but deeply brilliant Disgaea , they immediately set a bar for themselves higher than many gaming companies could ever achieve in their lifetime. As Irving Berlin once said, "The toughest thing about success is that you've got to keep on being a success.

As Leaden As The Acronym Implies

  • Excerpt: Well, it may have been inevitable that after the immense success it had with Disgaea , Nippon Ichi Software would endeavour to follow it up with another tactical RPG featuring the trademark humour and addictive gameplay found in that title. Or at least, that would be the logical conclusion to draw.

25 September 2006
  • Excerpt: “Imagination Knows No Limit…” No truer words could be spoken about Nippon Ichi’s game, Phantom Brave . Phantom Brave is the third game this year from Japanese Nippon Ichi, which opened up an American publishing office, NIS America, in Anaheim, CA. Since this is Nippon Ichi’s first solo project--Disgaea was published by Atlus and La Pucelle was published by Mastiff--the question arises: Is Phantom Brave up to par with its siblings or does it surpass them?

Phantom Brave

Playstation Illustrated
11 August 2006
  • Excerpt: A follow-up of sorts to Disgaea: Hour of Darkness , Phantom Brave is Nippon Ichi’s latest entry into the Strategy RPG genre. The game picks up right where Disgaea and La Pucelle: Tactics left off, combining a great, funny storyline with intense action, providing one of the best Strategy RPGs on the market today. Phantom Brave is Nippon Ichi’s best looking title so far, and proves that there is still a lot to be said for traditional, hand-drawn sprites.

  • Excerpt: Now that I have overthrown the final boss, I think it is fairly safe to say that Phantom Brave (PB) is the most complicated RPG I have had the pleasure, and occasional displeasure, to play. Nippon Ichi's (NI) newest (at least on this side of the world) strategy RPG is chock full of what makes a great strategy RPG with a heaping helping of incredible freedom and customization.
