Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle
23 May 2011
Summary: Phantom Brave is a charming little adventure game from people who know a thing or two about the genre. Unfortunately, the intriguing quest is marred by shallow gameplay and some pacing issues. If you're already bored of the newer role-playing games, then give this seven year old port a good long look!

Excerpt: Seven years after the original release of Phantom Brave and after travelling across two very different systems, Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle lands squarely on the PSP with extra content, cheerful game play and the quest to get to level 9,999. For the uninitiated, a strategy RPG varies from a traditional and action RPG in that rather than being placed in a static spot and fighting from there, you move around a turn-based field to engage each enemy.
Conclusion: Phantom Brave is a charming little adventure game from people who know a thing or two about the genre.

Excerpt: Bermuda's got nothing on her. A little girl, haunted by Phantoms. A world afraid of her. When you're around twelve and everyone thinks you're possessed (because you can't keep your own secret), what do you have to do? If you're Marona, then you gather together a big team of ghoulies and start laying waste for whoever will hire you. She's pretty naive , so it doesn't even have to be the right price. She's just that damn friendly.
Pros: Deep replay value, Battles are thought-provoking, Story is hardly thought-out, Way too much like
Excerpt: has been available for several years on both the PS2 and Wii. This new handheld iteration is basically the same, although it does boast 5 new heroes and more refined visuals that add some luster to a pleasing palette. Of course, like most Nippon Ichi productions, the game thrives on a crazy amount of depth and enough micromanagement to keep fans absorbed for weeks.
Excerpt: Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle is the third re-release of Phantom Brave . As with most re-releases, there's always a risk of older material not holding up to newer standards. Thankfully, the original was a quality SRPG, and though the PSP version loses some of the initial luster, it's still worth playing, at least if you haven't checked out previous versions. Presentation holds up as well as it could for a six year old game.
Review: Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle (Sony PSP)
4 March 2011
Summary: Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle is the third version of the game in seven years. It’s also the worst version due to the shoe-horning of the game’s visuals to fit the PSP screen, but at $19.99, it is a nice little budget RPG for the price conscious. The gridless combat will be a turn off for gamers who want all their tactical games to have cookie cutter gameplay, but it will be a nice change of pace for those that are a bit burned out one every game in the sub-genre...
