A fantastic beat em up with varied gameplay that plays great in both handheld and docked modes.

Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive has all the components of an addictive, satisfying beat-'em-up, but it just doesn't harmonise them as well as it should. Its overly complex battle system clashes with its bustling moment-to-moment gameplay, and the result is an often frustrating fighter with a deceivingly steep learning curve. That said, there's no denying that there's still fun to be had with this great looking brawler, especially if you join forces with a couple of capable players.

7.5 / 10.0
Ken McKown

Phantom Breaker: Battlegrounds Overdrive is a solid game with a steep learning curve without much in the way of tutorials. For those with patience to learn its intricacies, it is extremely rewarding, and a ton of fun. For those looking for a casual romp through a mindless beat 'em up, this is not the game for you.

Overall, Phantom Breaker: Battlegrounds Overdrive is a really fun game, filled with fast-paced, side-scrolling beat 'em up action. It brings gamers back to days spent in arcades pumping quarters into machines.
