In order to form parties, the game's People Finder option allows players to locate each other on giant servers. Once inside the Virtual Lobby, players can choose up to three other team members. Language barriers between players are broken down by a communication system featuring a universal icon system, preset phrases, and keyword translations. Players can create their own character by modifying their physical appearance and personality traits. Real-time combat features many of the original weapons and enemies from previous Phantasy Star games. Gamers can play completely online, completely offline, or a combination of the two.

GRAPHICS-- Great character models and backgrounds, repetitive textures. Smooth character animation, repetitive enemy animation. Overall, so good that you don't notice the repitition.
SOUND-- The music stays out of the way for the most part, which is good because it's(you guessed it) repetitive. Sound effects are well done, with everything making the right noise at the right time.
GAMEPLAY-- One word: Addictive. After creating a character you choose between going online to unite and play with others around the world(hence the "online" part of the title) or playing offline by yourself. You can play straight throughthe game or undertake optional quests from the hunters guild. Either way(online or off; quest or not)you proceed to slay wave after wave of monsters to gain experince and meseta(the game's currency), as well as find new weapons and items and spells. That's it in a nutshell.
Despite some camera issues to boot, the game remains a truly revolutionary and exciting experience. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
P.S. The game contains a demo of Sonic Adventure 2. The demo is almost as fun as the entire of the original Sonic Adventure.
Meanwhile the game was being produced, I never paid much attention into enquiring what the game was like, graphics and game play wise so when I purchased the game, it wasn't what I was expecting. However once I played it, it definitely took a lot of shirt pulling to stop me playing the game (as well as the money it was costing me when playing online).
Graphics: Sets the game to a stereotypical futuristic movie with all the hovering ships in the background makes the game absolutely great to play and even just to sit and view each element that moves. Every element in the game is all 3D rendered which puts the systems graphics card into good use, the character you are able to create can be unique in ever perspective as a wide array of clothing, race and hairstyles are at your disposal. Despite such amazing graphics, expectations of the game's frame rate to slow down is not common thus giving the gamer freedom to play the game at constant smooth
Game play: PSO is played in a third person view (Like Diablo on the PC) which is what surprised me the most about the game.Read more ›
Even though the language barrier is broken, some people still talk in Japanese, or french, Etc. That gets a little old, but Players are very easy to find
Graphics are well drawn, and the story line is decent. Advancement is hard and it takes a good while to level up your charcter.
A keyboard is a must with this game. I felt that this title was worth my price of 150.00 buying this system and with the price cut its even better.
I strongly recommend this game. Im sorry this wasnt no help to anyone, cause it wasnt well written. I do know this game is a must buy and you wont regret the 55.00 dollar price.
