Description

An action/strategy card game set in a post-apocalyptic world where the barren surface world has been covered in mysterious dust and everyone has lost their memories of the world before. A band of humans who have developed special powers called Espers, have discovered two people locked away in hibernation capsules. One person is a mysterious man named Edgar who may harbor answers to why the cataclysm has taken place. The other sleeper is you.

Phantom Dust boasts over 100 single player quests, more than 300 skills or cards, destructible environments, custom soundtracks, split-screen multiplayer, and online play through Xbox Live, complete with downloadable content such as new cards and skills.

Trivia

In a strange turn of events, Microsoft decided not to publish the game in the US. It was picked up by Majesco instead, and released at a value-oriented price.
