Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds

Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds is a reasonably priced title that is good for pick up and play sessions. The combat system is combo heavy and the leveling and scoring systems are pretty addicting. Outside of those aspects of the title though glitches and an entirely forgettable story drop Battle Grounds into the middle of a really crowded pack of available alternatives.

In the end, Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds does not feature the seminal, tightly-crafted fighting mechanics of Street Fighter or the spectacular boss fights from Castle Crashers, but it does provide a handful of hours of side-scrolling, 2D-beat-em-up glee. In spite of a few crippling issues and ham-fisted mechanics, Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds still outweighs its flaws with a competent throwback look and feel, gratifying gameplay flow and a strong selection of modes that, all things considered, justifies the asking price of merely $10.
