When all is said and done, Phantom Breaker Battlegrounds Overdrive is an okay game. One that, if you have a few minutes to spare, you can easily crank out a level or two, but not one of those games that will bring you back that often. Beautiful art, animation and music can’t seem to pump up the repetitive nature of the whole package.
Providing difficult challenges is entirely reasonable, but this is where Overdrive becomes wildly problematic. Nostalgia can only elevate so many issues, and modern players are used to a slightly more sophisticated experience. The nostalgic audio and pixel art are all fitting but do not offset the ill-judged difficulty or repetitive nature of the game. Phantom Breakers Battle Ground is charming and has potential, but after experiencing a modern interpretation of this genre, I can’t help feel that a little more work on balancing the game and expanding its progression would have made this a game with a much wider appeal.
Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive is filled with so much content and action you’ll barely be able to keep track of your fighters. This is definitely a representation of how jam-packed the game is with multiple modes, a large cast of characters and antagonists along with fighting and progression systems that offer a deeper than normal experience than you would expect from a game associated with the beat em’ up genre.
