    It’s got its heart in the right place aspiring to be like the Final Fantasy or Xenoblade series, but it’s still caught up in the platform paradigms we know all too well. In other words, it’s fine for its time, just not timeless.

Brave Frontier is one of those games that for a free to play player,This games is not the game for those who looking for quick and easy time. Brave Frontier is one of those games that for a free to play player, you need to invest time to get the game right on track. Beating epic bosses, going through vortex and attempt to capture new Heroes to be summoned. Despite its initial problem Gumi and Alim had stepped up to fix the problem and had provided generous amount of reward to the players, gems, free keys for vortex dungeon, free material units, even free Heroes if you archieve certain events. However all these is not achievable in just a few days, this is the kind of game that required the player to invest in their time building up your pitiful heroes made up of small slimes and grow into Heroes epic in power and design.

    You started off with very basic units, ya basic as hell, you are task to defeat the soul of Gaia. Capturing those tiny units and use them in hope you able to capture stronger units. Around autumn 2014, Gumi had updated the game to include daily task, which allows you to perform numerous missions to collect points, in which there are the cumulative reward and the trophy reward. Gems, helpful consumable and summon tickets are there for the taking if you are patient enough.

    It had the addictive gameplay that kept pulling me back. As I collected enough gems and summon tickets, I use them to summon the Rare Summon, and the event is Soul Bound Saga, both Ultor and Triton are beef enough heroes, after summoning a few unwanted(but actually very good heroes) I got them both. From a free to play player perspective, wow I feel real good about myself. Sure the luck and random number of god keep on taunting you, but Gumi at least make it possible to give you your first epic summon on your first try.

    This is the game where you need to play for a year to see your team becoming something of a monster. Pummeling bosses in one turn without a sweat, beating impossible bosses with the right team and ally, collecting more material to strengthen your new Heroes, capture more heroes and finally realized you need to spend a few gems to make spaces to repeat the addicting process above.

    I understand why games like Brave Frontier, Tower of Savior or Clash of Clans are able to keep their players beyond being called evil cash grab cheapskate, cause as they are required to maintain a huge server, they will reward players constantly to keep you happy, while most will be free to play, player will eventually play money to gain better rewards, however is a matter of luck and balance. I as a free to play players had created a team of Heroes that allow me to go through 126 win streak in an arena match until my team met their end against another free to play players(a friend of mine).

    Remember, this is not a game where reward comes instantaneously, you will be playing for sometime before seeing the gold chest unleashing rainbow unicorns and colorful ponies! But even if you start now, you still able to get the reward more easily compared to the previous years, better missions and more balance gameplay.

    Having a special liking to all games that are similar to the classic “JRPGs” which just means Japanese role-playing games such as, Pokémon:Having a special liking to all games that are similar to the classic “JRPGs” which just means Japanese role-playing games such as, Pokémon: Black and White and Paper Mario. This game is also infused “trading card games” inspirations. These two ideas that are incorporated into the game is what made me rush to my phone to download the app.
    Similar to other Japanese role-playing games, there is the battles between the good and bad side, the heroes and villains, the group of players attempting to save the world against those that want to make it all evil and destructive. As always also the player is part of “the good guys”. The player is provided with a guide to instruct about everything including the landscape, characters, backstory and information about the prizes the player may receive throughout the progress made. At the beginning I started with novice players. They are not the best but they are the only ones that were given to me so I accepted the challenge to make them the best and win the first battles.
    This game also features characters from four elements. There is water, fire, earth and thunder. Also there is the light or dark characters. Each element has its strengths and weaknesses. For example, water characters are vulnerable to thunder but water characters are damaging to fire characters. Likewise the light characters can only make significant damage to the dark and vice-versa.
    There are several reasons for what I believe makes this an addicting game and keeps me glued to the screen of my phone for literally hours upon hours. First, it doesn’t have to be played solo. You can add your Facebook friends or friend request people through the app to allow them to help you throughout the game. Secondly, it keeps you coming back for me because unlike other games that can be played until you eventually are tired and no longer find it appealing, Brave Frontier doesn’t do that. There is an energy bar that runs out and without energy you cannot participate in battles. However, the game developers must have thought that if players were not allowed to play due to the energy bar restriction, they should have something else that would still allow them to play the game while the energy bar was refilled. So as a result, you can manage your units which are the characters you acquire after a successful battle. Also you can produce new items that heal and power up your characters. So not everything is ruined when you run out of energy. This can actually be appreciable for the reason that players like myself will forget that there is still a real world we live in and that we need to rest and eat.
    When returning to the game again, I am encountered by presents from other players that have become my friends. Honestly, I become delighted when receiving these. Which in return makes me keep continuing to play Brave Frontier. I recommend this game to all Pokémon lovers as it can be greatly similar. This game is also a great way to learn strategy that can be applied elsewhere. I thoroughly enjoy this game and hope I have made an informative and thorough review that will interest others in Brave Frontier.

    I truly do not know where to begin when it comes to this game. It's not bad, but it's also not good either. This game presents a new take onI truly do not know where to begin when it comes to this game. It's not bad, but it's also not good either. This game presents a new take on the Turn-Base RPG type games. The controls are simple and easy to follow. You start the game by getting a sort of "starting unit" in the sort of essence as you do in Pokemon, and the game start's you on the tutorial level, which practically explains the ins and outs of the game as well as the mechanics. The game itself comes with four primary hubs (as of now) which are Quest, Vortex, Arena and Imperial Capital Randall.

    Quest is basically where you proceed along the story that is presented towards you at the start of the game. Vortex is where you can complete miscellaneous dungeons that reward you with useful items, units for evolving other units, and special events (also weekly rotation of events). Arena is where you can fight other player's units in a A.I. controlled fight, which practically is based on the power of your units and flat out luck. Lastly, the Imperial Capital Randall serves as a separate hub for other unique features. A couple other good things about this game is that the art style is very nice and distinct, backgrounds have effects and look nice, and the game's soundtrack is fantastic. All of this sounds nice, right? Unfortunately that is until you go deeper into the game; where the game get's shady.

    The first thing you'll notice when you're past the first world in Quest mode, is that this game can get unreasonably difficult for no reason whatsoever. Difficulty spikes can just happen out of nowhere, and its screws you for the rest of the mission. The way these developer's handle a boss stage can be utterly frustrating and just down right laughable. Some Boss stages they will make it either extremely easy or near impossible to do. In the developer's minds, I guess they think difficulty and challenge is throwing in the worst combination of enemy units that can destroy you in a matter of turns. When these kinds of encounters happen, it's just infuriating.

    This game is definitely a "pay-to-win" sort of mobile game, though it is possible to get by without wasting money, it's more directed towards the "pay-to-win" audience. The game crashes for no reasons sometimes, just out of nowhere at the most obscene times. A majority of the time the Developer's will give out compensations for such events, which is nice to see that they care about their players. This game does have holiday rewards for the Fourth of July, Christmas, etc... that usually last for a week, in that time frame they give out free items to the players.

    Overall, this game is not the greatest thing to hit the app market, but is certainly worth picking up if you can get past all of the negatives. The game is in itself an enjoyable experience, and I do recommend it to those who like those "Turn-Base RPG's" or just RPG games in general.

Fast forward and all theyIt was fun when it was new, a game that combined mobile gaming with a jrpg. There was a bit of sttategy and balance. Fast forward and all they care about is money. There is a massive amount of power creep where units are easily replaced by superior new ones. This creates a push where people try to spend heavy real money to get that new overpowered unit who will be obsolete in a few months. Repeat forever. Also, the hard fights rely on cheap gimmicks where having those highly sought after units becomes mandatory. This game could have been good, instead they chose a quick buck. Expand
