    Brave Story is a comfortingly familiar type of RPG that still feels fresh, thanks to the strength of its characterization, the attention to detail, the swift pace of battles and quests, and the technological proficiency of its load times.
  2. Brave Story stands tall not so much as a brand new experience with innovative gameplay, but a solid homage to the genre that manages to get every aspect just perfect.

    In the end, Brave Story comes as something of a surprise and quite a pleasant one at that.
  4. The best RPG so far on the PSP.
  5. Brave Story New Traveler is a simple old-school RPG for all ages and is one of the best handheld RPGs ever released.

    Make no mistake, this is a dyed-in-the-wool mid-generation PS1 RPG with no aspirations to being anything more. But it does what it does astonishingly well, so much so that it becomes much greater than the sum of its parts.

Although everything is simple here, I must say it was fun. The battle system has its advantage, it's doesn't require hard thinking instead of final fantasy, but it's quite interesting. The storyline... Well, I guess it's for child, everything is too good to be true, but somehow it got interest u in it, and so on. A classic jrpg, in one word Full Review »

    When I looked upon this game for the first time, I tought: meh, maybe it's better than Dragoneers Aria. I was not so far from the truth,When I looked upon this game for the first time, I tought: meh, maybe it's better than Dragoneers Aria. I was not so far from the truth, because it's slightly better. The story is one thing, full of clishes, retarded MC, non-interesting characters and the crown on this mild goatsh*t: the battle system. For a turn-based RPG fight system, it is essential to give wide strategic possibilities to the gamer, BS ain't got any. Maybe it's me, but this game is simple and blunt like a rock, with the same level of entertaining, zero character customization and almost 0 interactivity with this fantasy world. This game is empty, there is no better term to it, the only good thing is that I only borrowed it from my friend so I never payed a dime for this waste of bytes. Full Review »
