5.0 out of 5 stars The beginning of a proud legacy... September 2, 2007
By Kermit
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you look at the games that are said to have catalyzed the console RPG boom, you'll hear the names Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest/Warrior thrown around. Because of the NES's popularity, many gamers totally overlooked Phantasy Star. What they also overlooked was a game that FAR surpassed anything they had seen, or ever WOULD see again during the 8-bit era. Yuji Naka, who you may all now know to be the mastermind behind the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, created something back then which revolutionized console gaming. With its faux-3d dungeons, fully animated enemies, storyline centered on rebelling against a corrupt king, and the novel quest of good struggling against evil, Phantasy Star set the standard that all forthcoming RPGs would have to follow.

Phantasy Star places you in the role of Alis Landale, a teenage girl who lost both of her parents in an accident, and had only her older brother, Nero, to rely upon. That was until she lost him as well, as he's killed out of retaliation by King Lassic's guards for starting a rebellion. With his last breath, Nero pleads for Alis to find out the truth behind King Lassic, to find out why he suddenly became an evil tyrant. Swearing that her brother would not die in vain, Alis set out to find a man named Odin, Nero's friend in the rebellion. This is where an epic quest of self-discovery, exploration, and the pursuit of truth begins. An adventure spanning three worlds, each with its own motif (green, desert, and ice), Alis travels to numerous towns, and ventures through many dungeons in order to accomplish her goal. Combine all of this with a soundtrack that captures the moods of the many environments, and you become immersed in a world which for the 30 hours you devote to it, you may believe is your own.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best RPG of its Time!! July 20, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In this game you play as a girl (Stong Lead Females were Extremely rare back then) by the name of Alis Landale. In the beginning you are in Camineet where your brother Nero gets killed by Lassic's Robogaurds he tells you just before he dies to seek out a man named Odin in your quest to defeat Lassic and save the algo star system!!. PS is relatively easy to play the menus are easy to navigate, PS was differnet from other RPGs because of 3-D Dungeons, Monster's attacks are animated, it has HP counts telling you how much HP your enemies had , it represented multiple enemies with multiple HP counts. Although this was a good game it was over shadowed by Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior/Quest
Pros
Easy to navigate menus
Exellent Visuals (for the 8-bit Era)
Takes a Short time for Battles
Had Actual Characters (unlike FF which is more like create-a-team)
Had 5 save slots
Could Save at Anytime
Cons
Easy to get lost in 3-D dungeons
Easy to get bored of
Takes long time to level up when in the lvl 8-30 range

5.0 out of 5 stars As retro as it gets August 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was a must have for my retro system junkie husband. He just recently purchased a Sega Master System and this game was first on his list. Good story line for an RPG and the graphics are what you would expect with a game from the 80's. Plenty of play time with this game as it is not easily passed. Different worlds with many quests to complete. Spells and equipment to aquire and four characters to control. Fun to play and to watch!
