Summary: Brave Story: New Traveler is probably the best turn-based JRPG you will find on the PSP. I previously owned this game before re-purchasing it here on Amazon. It is still as great as I remembered it to be. One thing for sure remains with BSNT, it's TURN-BASED. I know that it is a traditional role playing form when it comes to these type of games but there are times when it gets real tedious as with almost any turn based role playing game that I have played in the past.
Summary: Very similar in gameplay to the upgraded remakes of classic Final Fantasy RPGs like 3 and 4 for both the PSP and the DS, but has its own "extras" like bird hunting and its own unique accessory crafting element. I'm not deep in the game but I'm enjoying the story thus far and would highly reccomend this for fans of classic turn based RPG play like Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, etc.
Summary: The Good: Graphics are easy on the eyes, battles are quick and deep, Unity and Bravura attacks mix up the typical standards, story steers away from standard JRPGs, mini-games add a nice touch The Bad: Graphics could have been better, yak yak text reading, constant random battles are extremely frustrating, not being able to escape most of the time adds to that frustration After the poor results of Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology, Brave Story comes around with a big...
Summary: I was needing a fun rpg to play on my psp. First I tried Vahalla Knights 2 and it didn't quite do it for me. It's a pretty good game but just didn't have what I was looking for. See my review on that game if you wish to know more. Anywho, last night I picked up a copy of Brave Story and I must say it's really fun. I love the music and anime-style graphics of this game. It has that fun factor I was looking for. It's visually appealing and fun to play.
Summary: Hungry for an RPG on your PSP? I know I was, and the lame offerings the system had made me want to cry with disgust. Then, like a light at the end of a long tunnel, came Brave Story: New Traveller. Yes, it's based on an anime I've never seen or heard of until now, but so what? Now, it's not the most original of RPG's, it's not the most innovative of RPG's, it's not even the best of RPG's.
Summary: I've had this game for about a week and played about 15 hrs worth. Here are some initial thoughts: PROS: +Hilarious dialogue and very charming characters. Since you'll be spending your whole game with these characters, humor and personality is a must. +Quick battles and I love the extra attack feature that happens from time to time to speed up battles +Gorgeous game, top-notch cut scenes and beautiful scenery and towns +Quick learning curve.
Summary: It's a great game! The story is a bit simple, but it's entertaining. The characters are all likable except the main character, who is silent, a pet peeve of mine. But other than that, it was good fun all the way through. There's a lot of text, rather than voice acting, which could put off some people, but everything else is sound. There's some nice usage of soft filtering on the characters that really make the graphics look nice.
Summary: The title for the review says it all. It is a turn-based Japanese role-playing game that takes the battle system from old RPGs and spices it up (a little). The story and characters can be somewhat childish at times, but the game is rated everyone. (what did you expect?) The dialogue is excellent. Although some character models may look the same, the dialogue manages to separate them fairly well. The only downside would be that the game is fairly easy.
