    After a few hours of gameplay, I need to say that this game is not bad at all after all. 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,After a few hours of gameplay, I need to say that this game is not bad at all after all.

    A solid traditional RPG with turn-based combat, outstanding graphics, almost no loading times, a lengthy story, rich characters and high playability. Neither a remake nor a port, Brave Story offers fresh content that has not been seen on other systems before. Definitely one of the most enjoyable RPGs for the PSP.

    Yes, it's a very traditional JRPG full of random battles and a silent protagonist, but there is just something special about this game. Maybe it's the writing, or the cast of characters, or the world, but I just couldn't put this game down until I finished the main plotline. The difficulty level, while somewhat easy, is perfect for those who don't have 80 hours to Yes, it's a very traditional JRPG full of random battles and a silent protagonist, but there is just something special about this game.

The difficulty level, while somewhat easy, is perfect for those who don't have 80 hours to spend on an RPG. One knock against the game -- While you do eventually enlist 6 characters into your party, I found absolutely no need to use any but the original 3 to win the game. The other reviewer is correct that BP regenerates in battle and is fairly easy to maintain, but seeing as there are no easily available BP boosting items you can buy, it seems like a fair trade off. Once you do win the game, you unlock all of the characters from the original Brave Story manga and are free to go back to the dozens of side missions you may have missed the first time through. While Jeanne D'Arc may be more advanced, it is a strategy game, NOT an RPG. For the time being, Brave Story is the best RPG experience on the PSP, hands down. Expand

    Great! it's a classic RPG good for the ones that likes the olde RPGs.. it's a simple story but well related characters unique, the only problem i see is that the game does not provide a true challenger it's a very easy the normal battles provides to be very hard, but the boss very easy but the game is exceptional

    Saying this game is visually stunning is an understatement. [Aug 2007, p.72]

    It's a solid RPG that's sure to appeal to fans who want a fun yet simple romp through the genre they love. However, Brave Story lacks the ingenuity to make it something I'd play for hours on end.

    It's a great game to be sure. Extremely playable and thankfully portable, it can have you going for hours on end. But seriously, I wouldn't mind if they tried to break out of the JRPG mold a little more.
