3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe online is better April 9, 2007
By Kilroy
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Although this game has been associated with good online gameplay reviews I wanted to check out the single player mode. I have found that the action RPG aspect of the battle system falls short and the environments are extremely dry. Moves are very basic and it feels your walking in the same room/area over and over again. The overall style of the world tries to give the feel of being in the online universe but is over shadowed by the problems I mentioned. I will never play this online but maybe fighting with fellow gamers helps over come these factors. For those who want to play a single player action RPG with this type of feel I suggest Star Ocean: Till the End of Time. It is an older game but the best action RPG I have played for the PS2.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing. August 31, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I sound harsh but I honestly tried to like this game,unfortunately I didn't. This game was disappointing. At first I had fun until I realized that EVERYTHING is the same. Exactly the same. All you do in the entire game is beat a monster,open a door,beat a monster,open a door,beat a monster,open a door through the ENTIRE game. That's it. This is a very poor game and the makers were too lazy to create anything fun. You can't even talk to the npc's,they turn invisible when you approach them..it's a pathetic excuse and it shows that the makers were too lazy to make actual npc's with personality or dialogue. This game doesn't deserve to be called a role playing game.

I did like how you could equip different weapons at the same time and change clothes for your character and how you can customize a new character in the extra mode,unfortunately the game becomes very boring after the first couple of "kill,open doors, kill, open doors" thing that I don't want to even bother with that.

I got Rogue Galaxy with this and that game also has different weapons and equipment/clothes which is rare in most Japanese styled RPG's,it also have a nice story and the characters and the world is extremely well made unlike this poor boring game.

This is just my opinion though,I myself love role playing games and for me this game was disappointing. Others might not care for that and they might like this game for the battles but this was just not for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good. April 11, 2014
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Verified Purchase
The box came in good condition even though I bought it used. I haven't played it too much yet because i've been busy with school and whatnot, but what bit i did play didn't have any problems. There were no scratches on the discs.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice mix of the Old and New September 25, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
As a owner and fan of the original Phantasy Star series, I was a little hesitant when PS Online came out. Not all of us can afford or have the hardware necessary for a MMPORPG. But when Phantasy Star Universe came out for the PS2 as a stand-alone game, I wanted to try and see if this new game had any of the charm from the old series.

Overall, I really enjoyed Phantasy Star Universe. Its certainly not the original series but that's okay. It takes off in its own unique direction while still being born from the same formula. Just like the classic series, there are three planets that just happen to have names and climates similar to the orginal. The races also contain some of the old favorites such as Numans and one of the central characters to the story looks very much like Nei from PS2.

So how does it all mesh together? Its obvious to see the online-roots of the game with the dungeons (if you can call them that) as many of them are quite repetitive in terms of scenery and instead of being a maze, its pretty much get from point A to point B without dying. Simple formula and although more variety or platforming would have been nice, its not totaly boring since the fighting is all hands on (no turn based system here) and you can really go wild with your weapons if you want to.

The storyline is nothing fancy so no surprises there. I also felt the game should have been longer but its not a major flaw. PSU makes up for some of this with having the option to create customized characters and flashy battle scenes of colored laser weapons that make it look like Star Wars on steriods. Maybe its not a totally original idea, but it works for this game.

So if you enjoyed the old Phantasy Star, this is worth a try.

2.0 out of 5 stars Gets old fast July 20, 2014
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Verified Purchase
Okay first off when you first start its FUN. After the third chapter everthing gets boring as everything is more or less the same. I would only recommend this if you are adding it to your collection. Other than that all you do is run around fields pressing square.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phantasy Star, the Universe only gets better November 9, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Phantasy Star online Epieosdes 1 & 2 have always been close to my heart when it comes to online games and, although I felt they went off track with their card battle game, episode 3, it seems they've more then made up for it with their latest installment.

Phantasr Star Universe takes place in the Gurhal system in what appears to be, for lack of a better term, an alternate universe. There no Pioneer 2, no Ragol, no Dark Falz. But thats alright! Because the story to this game pulls you in even more. The Gurhal system consists of three planets, one for each race other then humans who accepted the title of the lowest of the races. The races have been at peice for hundreds of years untill the unknown creatures known as the "Seed" began attacking.

This is where you take place. As a guardian it's your job to take missions and stop the Seed. Guardians seem to work a lot like Hunters did on PSO, except it seems less bounty-hunter-ish and more like a structured command system. PSU is the first of the PSO games which has a detailed offline mode complete with a full story and characters you can actually relate too. I'd suggest beating the story before going online.

Although the lack of "Mags" dissapointed me the new and somewhat revamped combat system kept me to my seat. The mechanics work mostly the same in the way of combos and most of the weapons you should be familier with if you've played the earlier installments, but there are several obviouse differances. You can no longer cast spells all willy nilly, you have to have a staff or a wand equipped, the ability to dual equip weapons such as hand guns and sabers so you can use them at the same time, weapon switching on the fly via the "Pallet" system.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game
If you enjoyed Phantasy Star Online for Gamecube/PC/Dreamcast you'll enjoy this game as well. The only issue is that the servers are no longer around, so the game is rather short.
