PSP Review – Brave Story: New Traveler


Brave Story: New Traveler is a traditional RPG title developed by Game Republic, the same team that brought us Folklore and the Genji series. While the team at Game Republic succeeded in making Brave Story accessible and easy to play, there are some...

Brave Story: New Traveler


In Japan, RPG is a religion, not a pastime. For that reason, there's no dearth of well-made imports from the Land of the Rising Sun. Brave Story New Traveler (Brave Story) is one of the latest in a long line of Japanese RPGs translated and distributed...

There you have it. Brave Story is an excellent game. Yes, the story is weak in my opinion, but the mechanics do more than enough to make up for it. And when I say the story is weak, it’s not that I’m saying it’s horrible. Because turn-based RPGs are...

Brave Story: New Traveler


The PSP is no stranger to RPGs. With a ton of titles constantly hitting the little widescreened handheld, there seems to be a bit of something for everyone.

Brave Story: New Traveler


A sleeper hit -- if you don't fall asleep before stuff gets good.

Doesn't play like a handheld RPG; deep story; specialty battle moves add strategy and visual oomph

Takes time to get started; not much character customization; battle graphics can be bland

Brave Story: New Traveler


Blue Dragon what? You gotta check out this traveler dude.

Along with this are some suitable voiceovers, which can be switched to Japanese or English, and a great soundtrack. The whole package is here, and although a pretty face doesn't make a good game, it's certainly got the substance and inner workings of a...

A must for players who have longed for a 3D Final Fantasy to be made for Sony's handheld

Brave Story: New Traveler Sony PSP Review


But what makes this turned based battle system so infectious are a number of factors that developers Game Republic got so very right. The loading times are non-existent between exploring and battle screens; a hell of an achievement as PSP fans should...

Excellent combat mechanics; A lengthy and consuming adventure; Beautiful technical achievement in graphics and presentation; An enjoyable shared minigame to boot

Uninvolved, fairly routine JRPG storyline; Generic world and character designs; I loathe the main hero's hat

Ever have that game that should be brilliant but does that one thing, or those fairly numerous things that punch you in the gut every time you see them? Brave Story has a few of those, but the big one for me is the hero's hat. It looks like a brown...

Brave Story New Traveler


Along with help from a few good titles recently released, and others forthcoming, Brave Story: New Traveler is bringing the PSP into a good light as an appealing platform for RPG lovers.

Brave Story: New Traveler is getting a great rating, despite the various flaws. There are a few of them, but they are trampled by what is simply a fun, enjoyable game. It’s got a solid battle system, entertaining story, good characters, and other RPG...
