A Great SRPG from NIS

  • Summary: Story: Phantom Brave follows the story of Marona a young orphan who works as a demon/monster hunter. Marona is not well liked by the populous do to her ability to see, interact, and summon phantoms to the physical world to aid her in combat. The story in this game tugs on the heart strings and you want Marona to succeed and become accepted by others.

Love this game

Gwendolyn Berlin, Amazon

  • Summary: The game showed up and I was playing it right away. A rarity among Nis America(formerly Atlus)games. Peo0ple underestimate the coolness of older games. I prefer old school stuff. Yeah,I would love a PSp and a PS3 but I am not that wealthy so I make do with that I can afford.

The Phantom Menace

Jeremy Michael Gallen, RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: On an island in the world of Ivoire lives an orphaned thirteen-year-old girl named Marona, who has the special ability to communicate with phantoms such as Ash, who when alive worked with Marona's parents to try and defeat a being named Sulphur, at whose hands they met their demise. Although Marona's powers bring resentment from others, she nonetheless works to resolve various disputes around the world, believing one day she will be accepted.

Unlike any other...

Bolton , GameStop
18 October 2008
  • Summary: Phantom Brave is a heavily under-appreciated SRPG that features an entirely different battle system, and promises the gamer endless hours of re playability. It's loads of fun, and anyone with a little patience can pick up and enjoy this game for as long as they want. (If you want a description based on the Gamestop rating, scroll down until you find) There are no grids! A very unique quality of the game is that your movement and attack ranges are entirely circular.

Average Game I Suppose

Bleuberri , GameStop
6 May 2008
  • Summary: When it comes to storyline games, the number one thing that gets me to pick up a title is the art and character design. I saw Phantom Brave sitting on the shelves and thought it looked rather enticing. Its unique anime style, interesting characters, and a cheap price all made this game rather appealing. So I bought it, took it home, and started playing. One of the first things I noticed was the terrible cut scenes.

Fun aspects in Disgaea vein

Selenus, Amazon
15 August 2007
  • Summary: Keeping in the same vein as Disgaea, this game does have a fun storyline, even if it does get slightly preachy at times. The gameplay is also solid, making easy beginning levels to help the player learn the system (if they've never played a game of this style before) while leading into the more challenging levels that require a high degree of strategy. If Disgaea, Makai Kingdom, or La Pucelle Tactics was fun, this game is a good addition.

My favorite Nippon Ichi game

Judah, Amazon
5 October 2006
  • Summary: I own them all for Playstation 2: Disgaea 1&2, La Pucelle, Makai Kingdom, even the bad Atlier Iris games distrubted by NIS America but really produced by Gust. This is my favorite, even if I have to drop a star for no new game+. I like it because it is hard, like a true stragic role-playing game should be. Your characters evaporate after a set amount of turns, forcing you to form a balanced party.

Very Unique and Fun

Robert Fisher "Video game connoisseur", Amazon
24 December 2005
  • Summary: I have seen a lot of divergent reviews for this game, so I feel the need to set the record straight. This game is similar to a tactical simulation, however it uses an active movement and attack system somewhat similar to games like Vagrant Story or Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter, however this game is mostly two-dimensional with sprites being used instead of 3d character models, on a 3d background.

What audience is this game for?

Dustin Halstead "Mangax", Amazon
22 August 2005
  • Summary: I'm not sure who this game was supposed to target, but it certainly wasn't me. While the graphics are ok for the genre, the music is repetitive and immature, and the voice-overs will make your ears bleed. I did however admire that they allow the player to choose between English & Japanese spoken dialogue; unfortunately, the Japanese dialogue is only slightly less annoying. Some of the concepts are new and interesting, but nothing ground breaking.
