Overall, Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive is a very fun, addictive throwback title that will keep you challenged and engaged throughout. Leveling up your characters feels rewarding, and upgrades are kept throughout all game modes giving the game a fair amount of replayability. While the swarms of enemies and cheap AI can be frustrating at times, the fast-paced beat-em-up action is very enjoyable and polished. If you have fond memories of pumping quarters into arcade games like Streets of Rage and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Phantom Breakers: Battle Ground Overdrive is absolutely worth checking out.
