Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Review - CHAOS HOUR

If just the name 'Phantom Breaker' is familiar to you, you must really follow Japanese video games. You may have even been one of the hopefuls for this beautifully animated 2D fighter, when scheduled for North American release in 2012 (we all import sometimes after all). Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds however, is an Xbox Live Arcade spin-off to it's predecessor; created no doubt, following the success of the original in Japan and profiting from an expectant following in other countries. Behind this rather generic and unassuming name however, is simplicity personified, in the form of a pure retro 2D beat 'em-up that wholly integrates its chosen theme and pays homage to the brawler genre of old. (Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds, Xbox 360) 7/10
