Phantasy Star Online continues in the tradition of the popular series and is the first worldwide, online role-playing game for a console. The story revolves around the Pioneer Project, a plan conceived in response to the imminent destruction of the home worlds. Seven years prior, Pioneer 1 was sent to establish a colony on Planet Ragol, which included construction of the Central Dome. As Pioneer 2 is about to arrive with the main wave of refugees, a gigantic explosion shakes the entire planet, cutting off all communication with the members of Pioneer 1. Players from around the world must now unite via SegaNet to unravel the mystery.

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.

Okay ladies and gents... I have a confession. I'm hooked. I'm truly addicated. I've tried counseling, I've tried exercise... Heck, I've even tried Skies of Arcadia. (Skies is a great game, don't get me wrong... a true masterpiece. Buy it now. But be sure to pick Phantasy Star up first, cuz it's simply amazing.) I'm not an avid RPG player. I love a deep storyline, but the major two problems I generally find with RPG's are that, a) the storyline is interesting, but you spend the entire game watching movies or reading pages-worth of dialogue, and b) the dialogue that there is on the screen is incredibly hokey. Grandia II, another excellent Dreamcast RPG, suffered (tho not unbearably) from the latter of these two complaints. Anyways, yes. Phantasy Star Online is a hack-and-slash game. You fight monsters, gain experience points, the whole kit-and-kaboodle. The battle system itself is not a turn-based combat system, it's a much more arcade-style (i actually find that i enjoy it much more.. imagine a Zelda-style RPG, and you've got the right picture.) But, for as sparse of a story as there is, the dialogue that there is in the game is well-written. And the gameplay more than makes up for the lack of a strong story. Trust me, you're gonna love playing this game. Also, for those of you who find yourself in need of a defined mission, there are mini-missions avaliable for play during the game. These are fun and sometimes downright silly. Sometimes these missions are tragic, as well. The diversity is well-planned by Sonic Team. The graphics are extremely sharp, wonderfully colored, and well-textured. They blew me away. The monster designs are all well-animated, and promote an outcry of "coolness!" The control is great, very easy... And the spells and weapons are lotsa fun.Read more ›

Phantasy Star Online has been a long time coming. The series got its roots back on the SEGA Master Sysyem in the 80's. This newest installment brings back Youji Naka of Sonic Team, who worked on the original. Anyways, down to business...I'll try to keep this concise.
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.

Since buying the Dreamcast, it had never been played as much as my PC did until ''Sonic Team'' announced the production of a sequel to one or thee most popular Role Playing Games ever to hit the Sega system. Phantasy Star first was born and released on the Sega Master System, it's ability to use a three dimensional scenery as dungeons was astonishing for a 8 Bit System. Phantasy Star 2 was then released for the Sega Genesis (Megadrive) and was even better with it's addictive game play and graphics made it a huge hit for everyone. Phantasy Star 3 & 4 was repeated game play of the second of the series. Sonic Team has revived the saga and has released the long awaited and most anticipated game...Phantasy Star Online (PSO).
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.

Ok, im new at this sort of thing...Writing reviews. However, this game is one great title and is needed in a dreamcast gamers library. The online part is where this game really shines. Offline can get boring and you lose desire to play after a couple of hours.
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.
