  • 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.

  • Excerpt: As technology has improved, so has the aesthetic and aural nature of the gaming medium. Large quantities of cash now envelop the development of a game to ensure the final product is one similar to a Hollywood blockbuster. Well, if a title like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for example, is akin to that Hollywood blockbuster then Phantom Brave is most certainly likened to that of an independent movie; a game relying on the fundamentals of film making; a story which...

  • Summary: Phantom Brave is not for those just coming in to Nippon Ichi's RPG's and although there is plenty different about this one there is a lot to keep Tactical RPG fans and fans of the Nippon Ichi range happy enough with a unique take on the format. While the story is more dramatic, losing much of the comedy of Disgaea's, it does its job. If your a fan of either of the two then go ahead and pick this up but for new players I would recommend heading for Disgaea first.

  • Excerpt: Waayy back in the summer of ’03, Nippon Ichi and Atlus decided to test the American waters with Disgaea: Hour of Darkness . Demand for this game was so high they saw fit to release La Pucelle: Tactics , a game that had been released in Japan in 2002. This Tactical-RPG-release frenzy continued recently, with Phantom Brave . Like its predecessors, Phantom Brave is a very fun game with a deep battle system, nearly unlimited customizability, and a great story.

  • Conclusion: Overall, Phantom Brave is a good game, but it is something you are going to love or find exceedingly tedious, and at 60+ hours long, that's either a lot of love or a lot of tedium.
  • Pros: Excellent strategy., Endearing characters and plot., Good sound track.
  • Cons: Graphics are quaint, but not great., May be too complicated for some – vague tutorials do not help.
