anybody playing/played this? i'm in chapter 6 now and woah...this game makes me glad i got a psp.  historical accuracy notwithstanding, the story is really well done, from presentation and pacing of the narrative to the deep characterisations.  the plot expands and takes on an epic scope, but it doesn't feel forced or overwrought. this game also causes me to take pity on those who do not enjoy video games. they're missing out! all hail level 5!

Agreed - it's a very good game.  Even with the fact that there are a bunch of strategy RPGs on the PSP, it's well worth playing.  The mechanic of trying to get your enemies ALMOST dead so you can zip around eliminating them in one turn is awesome.

It's an above average game. I actually got addicted to the whole item synthesis element of the game despite the fact that I normally don't like item synthesis. However, the story didn't do much for me. Gameplay wins here.

I loved this game (as seen in my review). It's definitely one of the best RPG's on the system.

Heck, if you just plain like strategy RPGs, the PSP is a great system to get.  There are at least a few really good action RPGs on it as well, and there's a ton of other good stuff on it, some of which can be had pretty cheap these days.

(No disrespect to the DS - tons of great stuff on it, too.)

Great game.  I didn't get to finish it, cause I was under levelled at the end, though.  But even despite this obviously unfortunate setback, it's still one of the best PSP games imo.

I like Jeanne's portrayal, but De Rais' is somewhat off as he doesn't rape or kill any children at all during the course of the game.  :P

Yeah... I'm actually kind of glad I don't know the true history better than I do.  Makes it easier to think of them as just fictional people not really based on anyone.

Brave story didn't get bad reviews... it's a decent game. Also, Crisis Core is a great game.

the reviews of brave story i saw gave it between a 6.5 and a 7.5. not a bad review but not a good one. and if a game doesnt get at least an 8 or a 9 i usually ask around to friends if its worth buying.

if its worth buying thoguh ill check it out, i really need something new for my psp.

re:crisis core i havent bought any of the ff7 sequels, i wasnt the biggest ff7 fan, i liked it a lot but it was far from my favorite. of all the sequels crisis core is the one i'm most interested in.
