Brave Story: New Traveler
14 May 2008
Conclusion: Thankfully, under that shiny exterior, there's a rather enthralling game to be found and enjoyed. It's all very traditional in set-up: you're on a mission to save your friend, so you visit towns, meet new people, battle monsters, and recruit additional help to your cause.
Excerpt: It's tempting to say that Brave Story: New Traveler is the best RPG I've played in a long time, on any console. It certainly ranks highly against my favorites of all time, going back to the original Xenogears and Final Fantasy VII .
Conclusion: is not the most remarkable RPG. It is a very standard RPG and gets repetitive with a generic combat system. The dungeons are similar from dungeon to dungeon. There are no puzzles or complex tasks required. Just move around until you reach the end of the maze.
Excerpt: For a long while the RPG Master has been disappointed with the role playing game genre. There have been few RPG games that have drawn the RPG Master into them, and where the RPG cared about the characters. Enter Brave Story New Traveler from Xseed Games.
Excerpt: The PSP is no stranger to RPGs. With a ton of titles constantly hitting the little widescreened handheld, there seems to be a bit of something for everyone. Brave Story has a very clear demographic. It's designed for RPG fans, and ONLY RPG fans.
Excerpt: I don't like a mediocre role-playing game (RPG). Not even a bit. The genre is stale, and has become overpopulated with a lot of weak efforts doing little more than fulfilling the basic requirements. Random battles, a young kid saving the world with a ragtag group of companions, and so on.
Excerpt: Brave Story is a very fun game. The concept revolves around you, a person in “real life” in the game, and your friend. Your friend suddenly falls incredibly sick, and you must gather gems to save her.
Summary: Brave Story: New Traveler features an entertaining storyline, enjoyable cast of characters and traditional turn-based battle system which is easy to pick up and play even for beginners, but has great depth and innovation for the seasoned gamers.
Conclusion: For those looking for a lengthy single-player and ultimately truly classic RPG for the PSP, then Brave Story is a great choice. It’ll take dozens of hours to complete the main quest and there are some sidequests to check out as well.
