It isn't all about graphics when you get to play two charming slices of off-the-wall Japanese lunacy like in NIS Classics.

Prinny Presents NIS Classics Vol. 1 is a great throwback for fans of the original games and the ability to take them on the go is an added bonus. Although I just don’t think enough has been done to improve on the originals with a lot of the lingering issues still present.

All in all, Prinny Presents NIS Classics Volume 1 is two classic games in one visibly aged package. If you’re interested in seeing what else the people behind Disgaea have been working on, this will be a real treat. However, I wouldn’t recommend these games to people who aren’t already fans of NIS titles. And if you’re a Soul Nomad fan, then what are you waiting for? Not only did NIS finally port the game to a new console, but it also threw in a free second game.

We're always fans of seeing lesser-known games in any genre get a bit of love and exposure to new players, and the two games in the NIS Classics Volume 1 collection both have a lot to offer tactics fans. Phantom Brave's combat system is unique among tactical RPGs and Soul Nomad's take on the hero's journey is still interesting 15 years after its PS2 release. However, both games feel even older than they are; the unattractive visuals and uneven voice acting of this compilation re-release aren't going to change anyone's mind who wasn't a fan before, nor prove attractive for a new audience.
