    A nice remaster operation which brings new life to a classic title of the original Xbox's library. Decent in single-player, excellent in multiplayer.

    Beside his poor technical aspect, the best thing of the game it's the gameplay. The battles may seem simple, but they contain a lot of tricks to provide depth.

    Phantom Dust is the very definition of a game of two halves. The underground hub sections are dull, with little in the way of signposting or hand-holding to make the time spent there as small as possible. The overground mission sections are fast paced, tactical and, above all else, fun to play with a myriad of ways to approach the missions.

    Think hearthstone meets power stone. Great, game, needs more attention. story is entreating through and game play is strategic and actionThink hearthstone meets power stone. Great, game, needs more attention. story is entreating through and game play is strategic and action packed. Multiplayer has a well balanced drop in and play decks and custom decks for those who like to tweak. Expand

    On 4K and better than ever! A classic lives again!
    Phantom Dust is one of my all time favorite games. For years I hoped for a sequel.
    On 4K and better than ever! A classic lives again!
    Phantom Dust is one of my all time favorite games. For years I hoped for a sequel. Then, the age of remasters came. When a new Phantom Dust was announced at E3 2014, I ran out and bought an Xbox One. That reboot ended up falling through, but that paved the way for this release!

    This is a HUGE improvement over the original. The game holds up incredibly well when brought to 4K. The load times are virtually non-existent now. Failing a mission three times allows you to skip it entirely... No more building an arsenal just to use 1 pointless skill to finish one mission.

    Play through the single player at least once, and avoid spoilers! The story is actually quite special. Some of the missions are a slog, but they are skippable now! After that, head online and collect the online skills! They are incredibly unique. Watch out for Will-O-Wisp!

    Purchase the $6.99 skill pack to support the developers. None of the microtransactions are necessary. Thank you Microsoft and co!

    One of the best games ever made. The HD remix is very well done and the gameplay still holds up to this day, Just an all around stellar game.One of the best games ever made.

Phantom Dust deserves a full sequel but until then the re-release will serve the PD community well. Expand

    This was my favorite competitive game back in the mid - late 2000s, but I wasn't sure if it would hold up.... I think it's better than ever. Still my favorite competitive game. So much fun.

    I can handle the microtransactions, I can even handle the lack of voice support, but I cannot support the removal of LAN play from this game!I can handle the microtransactions, I can even handle the lack of voice support, but I cannot support the removal of LAN play from this game! Unacceptable! When Xbox Live eventually shuts down, this game will become unplayable. Thanks Microsoft... you had one job. Expand
