    In my personal opinion, Phantom Brave is the best when it comes to gameplay in strategy/tactical rpgs.

    Nippon Ichi tried to do something new when they released Phantom Brave for the ps2. The mechanics in the gameplay are highly improved from Disgaea and La Pucelle. Don't get me wrong, Disgaea is really...

    Phantom Brave soundly innovates a mostly staid genre and comes out a pleasing, if flawed, strategy RPG. *Unfinished*

    Phantom Brave is the third entry in Nippon Ichi's series of offbeat strategy role playing games for the Playstation 2. The company's previous titles have taken their time traveling to the West, making...

    If you can keep your characters evenly leveled, Phantom Brave delivers a unique spin on the SRPG.

    Rated on May 22, 2008 by 2-10-08

    From the makers of disgaea comes Phantom Brave, a SRPG with one big difference: no grids. What it does is make things a bit more complicated, but whether or not that's a good t hing is up to you. M...

    Phantom Brave is a masterpiece in terms of strategy and gameplay. It's only flaw lies in it's shallow and childish story

    Rated on December 29, 2004 by akhorahill

    Phantom Brave is the PS2 version of the old tactical-RPG genre. The gameplay is similar to the older Ogre Tactics series and Final Fantasy Tactics. You basically control a squad of characters through ...

    It's a very good game.

    Rated on July 05, 2007 by bloojayxx

    Phantom Brave is a good game and, I guess, worth it (only spent $10 on it and it was new..). Many different characters to create like fighters, mages, putties, etc. Difficulty: It's not really hard, b...

    Death to the different one!

    Rated on February 02, 2006 by Boochi0

    After creating the popular "Disgaea", Nippon Ichi decides to throw the world another one of their wonderful SRPGs, Phantom Brave. Upfront, Phantom Brave is probably just as good as Disgaea... although...

    This is an excellent game for people willing to think while playing. Warning: Strategy RPGs are thinking games, OK?

    Rated on February 09, 2006 by roninnokinoko

    This is uncomparable to another strategy RPG. The attack-with-anything-on-the-screen thing sometimes leaves you with more options than you want to think about. It also allows you to develop unique str...
