Brave: The Search for Spirit Dancer (PlayStation 2)


Brave finds some decent variety with its standard action adventure format, but it's neither a particularly challenging nor ambitious game.

The whole point of your quest is illustrated in the title: The Search for Spirit Dancer. A massive, intimidating fire skeleton is threatening Brave’s village, and he must find the legendary Spirit Dancer to stop it. Brave is a very young Native...

Wild horses (plus bears, eagles, wolves, and buffalo) couldn't drag Brave away

Top-shelf animation ; Well-crafted story ; Flying tomahawks

As such, the adventure genre has become a genre largely focused towards the younger gaming crowd. The colourful, creative and imaginary creatures that usually adorn each adventure title often don't appeal to the older game; therefore, many developers...

Brave: The Search for Spirit Dancer: PlayStation 2 (PS2) Game Reviews - The Armchair Empire


It seems like Brave: The Search for Spirit Dancer was announced so long ago and then dropped off the radar – as many games do. I feared that it was going to be yet another game that I was looking forward to playing just sliding into oblivion

Fun platforming experience

A little on the short side at 5-6 hours

Despite the numerous changes the series has undergone since its inception in the 16-bit era, there remains one constant in the Breath of Fire universe: the lead character, Ryu, and his ability to transform into a powerful dragon-like entity. Along with co

Brave: The Search for Spirit Dancer


With his anime-looks and cute as a button lethal axe, Brave joins the likes of Spyro and Crash at the kid-friendly end of the adventure market.

Plenty of variety thanks to various 'mini-games ; Easy controls to learn ; Helpful hints for younger gamers

Product Specifications

When Brave's village is attacked by the evil Shaman Wendigo, he has no choice but to leave the sanctuary of his home and set off on a quest of vital importance. His voyage will not be easy, but it's a journey he must take; a journey fraught with danger and revelation, a journey, which he must complete. He must find the Spirit Dancer. For Brave's search to be successful, he must become a skilled tracker, swimmer and climber and excel when using the longbow and tomahawk to overcome the many enemies that stand in his way. He'll also need to master magical spells and mystical abilities and learn to control numerous means of transport, including the canoe and the buffalo. Fortunately, Brave's travels will not always be alone; the Spirit Eagle is his closest ally and will assist him whenever possible. Also, by learning the ancient art of mimicry Brave will gain the power to attract and lure the animals of the forest to further help him on his quest. So, it is time for the adventure to begin. The path is long and many different environments must be overcome - forests, desert plains, icy lands and raging rivers lie ahead; perhaps Brave's quest will even take him into the spirit world.
