Phantasy Star Online User Reviews

.............

Summary:

Yuji Naka, creator of Sonic, Phantasy Star, and my favorite game of all time (Flicky!!!!), is at it again, and after years of coding, designing etc., we have a sad flop on our hands.
But how can a game with such high pedigree be so disappointing? How can a series with such prestige as Phantasy Star possibly score so low?

Graphics 09/10- Breathtaking background visuals that rival those of a Playstation 2 game (which, as of 2-11-01, have all sucked gameplay-wise). Beautiful forests, caves, etc. make you want to keep playing, until you realize you're not having much fun. The character models l...

P-S-O Spells Y-E-S?

The good:

environments and scenery, strategic play, quests, character customization

The bad:

offline mode, level design, controller options

Summary:

I bought my Dreamcast system off of a friend who attended the same university as myself. He needed some extra cash, and since his Dreamcast was collecting dust in his living room, I had some spare cash and thought it to be a decent investment. Besides, after having had my PlayStation for a few years, I could have used some affordable variety, you know.

A friend of mine introduced me to PSO. To be honest, I only made it through the New Game's character design sequence and a few moments in the first levels, but hey, I was hooked in. It became more than obvious the level of attention and detai...

The RPG that nearly was brilliant

The good:

There are some good parts to this game like being able to go online. The graphics are good too.

The bad:

RPG games are not supposed to have difficuilty levels. Also it gets very repetetive.

Summary:

This game is the best RPG on the Dreamcast but doesnt nearly match up to the hit Final Fantasy Series (which will be releasing their 12th game in the series soon) The graphics are detailed enough but it has difficuilty levels which are not supposed to be in RPG's(RPG are supposed to be one big game). But another good thing about this game is the fact that you can go online. This adds a whole new depth to the game. But if Final Fantasy was to possibly go online(which it probably will) it would outrate this easily. Hopefully Phantasy Star Online 2 is better than this and can put a challange t...

Phantasy Star Online Review

Summary:

Sega's flagship RPG series is the long-running and popular Phantasy Star series. First appearing on the Sega Master System, the original Phantasy Star is still considered one of the greatest games of all time, and the three follow-ups on Sega Genesis were, more or less, equally well received. With the Dreamcast needing a solid RPG, as well as a convincing online title, it wasn't much of a stretch to try to move the series into the online realm.

Phantasy Star Online is certainly not a traditional RPG, but for those who enjoy solid action RPGs, this game's right for you - online or off.

1st online console based RPG, and it ain't no joke either

The good:

Great Graphics, previous familiarities from prequels, able to play your player both offline and online, metting alot of people online, system of breaking the barrier of language, lyin about duping has it's funny antics, lots of respectable.

The bad:

offline is a bit boring, hackers spoil the game, plaer killers players play dirtier than any online rpg (they kill why you can't do anything), DBZ fanatics do nothing but flame.

Summary:

Aweosme game just plain awesome, tons of fun, great team work, lots of respectable players (despite the DBZ wackos there don't deserve a damn), so it's a very social adventure.
