4.0 out of 5 stars Phantasy Star's Awkard-Yet-Promising Teenage Years April 21, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a big fan of dungeon crawlers, games that have their roots in the very old "Rogue," and were brought into the mainstream most successfully by Blizzard with their Diablo series. Basically, in these games, you wander around in a maze, killing bad things, taking their stuff for your own, and finding the gateway to the next area. Along the way, you get stronger, and so do the enemies. Sometimes you go back to a town so you can sell things, buy things, repair things, and so on. It's a pretty simple model for entertainment, and if that sort of game is your thing, then this game will be a solid purchase for you. You don't really need to read the rest of this review, because it's mostly musing from a long-time Phantasy Star lover and former Phantasy Star Online, Episode I & II (PSO) fanatic.

This latest entry takes cues from earlier games in the franchise, which, like Final Fantasy, isn't really an episodic series so much as an ongoing collection of thematically similar stories. One big complaint that older gamers had with PSO, Sega's first shot at making the franchise into a dungeon crawler instead of churning out another classic Japanese-style RPG, was that it bore almost no similarity to the earlier games in the franchise. Some item names carried over, and the overarching theme of a recurrent great evil that must periodically be put down by violence was there, but that was about it. Sometimes, changing gears works out well; the shooter Panzer Dragoon led to the RPG

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Phantasy Star Online... without the Online. May 18, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been a fan of the Phantasy Star series since Phantasy Star Online on the Dreamcast. Back then it was obviously meant for multiplayer, but still enjoyable in single player.

Phantasy Star Pocket is a continuation of the story from Phantasy Star Universe.

I like the fact that any character race can have any job and even switch job types by paying a relatively small amount of meseta (the in game curancy) but I miss some aspects of the old MAG system. CAST and Beast characters can get items that are similar to the old MAG Photon Burst, but Human and Newman character can't.

With PSO I never liked the idea of paying $8 a month to play a game that wasn't really an MMO, but I enjoyed playing online during the free trial. Phantasy Star Portable has free multiplayer, but it's AdHoc only, meaning you can't play with anyone over the Internet unless you get an Xlink Kai adapter.

I'm giving this 4 starts because Infrastructure mode should have been included. I would have given it 3 stars but the fact that Xlink Kai supports it gives me hope of actually finding someone to play with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remember the Dreamcast? March 31, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The last time I played a version of Phantasy Star Online, it was on the Sega Dreamcast, and it was gobs of fun. For better or worse, Phantasy Star Portable is very similar to PSO. The combat mechanics are more polished, the AI players are smarter, and the monsters are more various. However, when I popped the game into my PSP, I had a flashback to the hours I spent online with PSO.

The only gripe I have with Phantasy Star Portable is that the town has been broken down to a mere menu. Part of what I liked so much about PSO was the vibrant atmosphere of the town. Yeah, the game is all about the fighting, but it all revolves around the town. In order for this game to be as truly immersive as the original, the developers should have fleshed out the town.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game, PSone console graphics. August 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
this is a great game if youre an RPG-hack-and-slash fan. the controls are easy enough to learn after about 20 mins playing. the storyline is great and the cutscenes are amazing(compared to the rest of the game) the cutscenes are a more buffered cinematic whereas the interface graphics are something akin to PSone, but that is not to say its a bad game. the storyline and cutscenes and controls are enough to rate this game 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phive Stars January 26, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Lately I've been on this crazy Phantasy Star kick! I missed out on these little gems growing up, and I never really wondered about them until recently. It's like this: I got the Sega collection for my birthday and started playing the originals and I was really impressed, especially with four. So hey what they heck I think. I'll give these new ones a try too.

I think they did a great job on this game, in that they have preserved a lot of the elements from the originals. It's a different sort of experience mind you, but it feels like a Phantasy Star game. This is important, because online RPG type formats have been tried with other huge RPG franchises, with some questionable results. Final Fantasy 11 for instance, just felt like some second rate free Korean MMO that had some extremely superficial elements thrown in to justify calling it a Final Fantasy game. That is that and this is this happy to say. It works. Everything they do they do well. The only problem is that in many cases they are too timid, and just don't carry their ideas out far enough.

This game is basically an online dungeon crawler that boasts cooperative play. If you are in to this kind of thing, you can hardly find better for the PSP. If you happen to have a friend with the game then all the better. Its charm lies mostly in the cooperative aspect. Its still charming enough to get you after a few drinks even so! Don't leave your PSP unattended readers.

GRAPHICS AND SOUND:

The graphics in the game are pretty darn good. The environments of the game vary from outdoor grassland, to icy caves, to Sci Fi monster factories, replete with plenty of phosphorescent future junk everywhere!
