Fair Enough RPG!
Phantasy Star franchise still in good shape.
This one is fair enough and still have a good story.
There is no online mode anymore!

Servers now offline
But you can play it offline, there are various chapters in the story mode and missions to level up your character, its easily a game you can invest 50+ hours in.

PSU: The Offline Side
I should make it clear from the start that this is a review of only the offline portion of the game. So don't think of this review as giving a full perspective on the game because really only the online portion is the selling point for some.

Because I only played the offline portion of this game, my initial impression was that it reminded me of the .hack// series -- playing a single player game in a pseudo-MMORPG setting. The only difference from the .hack// series is there really is a MMORPG to be played. While it is not completely accurate to describe them as similar, on a loose basis they can be, especially in terms of the battle system. You run around with two other AI-controlled players and battle enemies as you encounter them. In PSU, there is no transition from exploring to battle, so it helps keep the pacing. The battles feel frantic enough that it doesn't feel like just mindless attacking. Don't get me wrong, it has it's fair share of button mashing, but unlike other real-time action RPGS, I found myself making more often making defensive moves.

The visual presentation is good, but nothing spectacular. Trying to be as objective as possible for a past generation game, I still found the characters to be a bit lifeless looking. A lot of the animations don't really convey much energy, so it is not as engaging as other games (though that could just be modern day bias). The sound design is on a slightly higher level. The music is fitting and so are the character voices.

For a single player game, I consider this to be a good game. But I feel that the main intention of this game was to be played online with many other players. Unfortunately, I was a bit late and did not get to experience this. If you enjoy MMORPG style games and don't mind playing by yourself, then you may want to try this out.

Cool game!
What a good game! The price is also very good! Although I don't play it online, but at least I can enjoy the 12 chapters of the offline mode.

Buy it if you're a RPG or Phantasy Star lover!

By no means a Great game.
Before i write this, i am someone who has played the game offline only so i will not be giving a review of the online portion.

So if you were buying this for PC, you would have to have Gameguard which the game installs on your PC, those that don\'t know what Gameguard is, and what it does, you can always read up, it saves the time explaining and besides PS2 version doesn\'t need this.

Okay.. where to start.

Phantasy Star Universe is the long awaited newest Offline/Online Phantasy Star Game.

It has 12 or so Chapters in its story mode, and around chapter 3 you can play extra mode, which you can make your own character and walk about doing missions, however you need to complete the game to unlock everything in said mode.. think of it as the offline version of online.

the story involves Ethan Waber, a guy/boy that pretty much joins up with GUARDIANS, and goes on missions, and thus the story unfolds

i found the sound average at best, the graphics are basic but livable.

also.. the game does get kinda repetative.

Basically a mission involves Cutscene, text scene, then whacking monsters area after area after area, more scene, and then boss, then end of chapter.

i like the chapter music for each chapter they have this song that plays that feels kinda soap opera like, and the ending part for every chapter is nice too

if you want a game you can just relax in.. well if you don\'t expect a deep game by all means
however if you are looking for a super deep game, stay away.

the online version isnt half bad, just you gotta pay if you wanna use
