PSP Game Review: Brave Story – New Traveler
“When surreality is almost as real as reality.”
This is one amazing PSP game which I could play over and over again if there is no other game on my playlist! The game begins with an introduction to the life of an 11 year old boy. I named the character – Cmate. The first scene unfolds with him and his friend, Miki, enjoying a quiet evening together at the park. Suddenly, Miki collapses. At the hospital, he learns that she may not be waking up from coma afterall. Feeling helpless as a friend, he wishes that there is something he could do to save her. Like many wishes, his comes true.
“Beyond the door you can change your destiny!” – a voice speaks. With the wish to save his friend, an amazing journey begins in the world of Vision. There is no guessing what’s ahead with each step, but challenges are definitely paving the game to an exciting adventure where bravery, friendships and personal growth come into play.
The amazing thing about Brave Story: New Traveler is its storyline which is nicely crafted to motivate you to move on from one level to another. It’s not another lame storyline placed in a game just for the sake of having a story to it, Brave Story: New Traveler is all about the story as much as it is about the concept of the game.
Turn-based roleplaying method of gaming, your character usually teamed up with two others of your choice in his adventure. And with each adventure, you learn something new about the world of Vision and the way life takes place in this mystical world. It emphasizes on how our bravery can shine through in times of need and we have to be bold to face the challenges in our life.
With great graphic effects and cool sound effects, this game got me hooked for a couple of weeks. I was looking forward to move on to the next level all the time, while unwilling to let the game ends. But when it finally ended, I’ve got to say that I was satisfied. Because the accompanying scene that brought the game to an end was a fantastic one. You’ll have to finish the game to know what I mean.
