Phantasy Star Online – Review

GameCritics.com
15 November 2004
  • Excerpt: In the realm of science-fiction, a reoccurring theme that has been explored countless times is man's relationship with technology. The popular consensus seems to be that machines will either be utilized to elevate our existence, or they will eventually rob us of our humanity and lead to our downfall. Films like The Matrix , The Terminator and Star Wars seem to exemplify the bleak latter.

Phantasy Star Online – Second Opinion

GameCritics.com
15 November 2004
  • Excerpt: For starters, Phantasy Star Online seems more like a first step in establishing the framework for an online world, rather than a fully-fleshed game. It's a very bold first step forward, and it gets much respect for that. There's a seed with a lot of potential here, but the game in its current form isn't very much fun. While Chi seems to have enjoyed the various chat portions of the game far more than I did, that's all the game really is—a chat.

Phantasy Star Online

Defunct Games
14 August 2004
  • Excerpt: I have suffered for more than 15 years enjoying Role Playing Games. I have endured companies not releasing games in the United States based on "supposed" lack of interest (Final Fantasy II, III, and V). I have settled for renamed characters and poor translations (Phantasy Star IV). And I have put up with over priced RPGs (all Role Playing Games). So why do I do it? Why do I put up with it?

Phantasy Star Online (DC)

25 June 2004
  • Excerpt: Faced with the imminent destruction of their home world, a large-scale evacuation plan known as the Pioneer Project was established to find a new home planet. Unmanned probes sent into deep space discovered a habitable planet they dubbed Ragol and the first interstellar transport ship Pioneer 1 was sent to establish a colony. After confirming Ragol was suitable, the initial colonists began preparing the planet starting with construction of the central dome.

Expert Review

20 December 2003
  • Excerpt: Many gamers looked forward to Phantasy Star Online with enthusiasm; I know I did. The revival of the famed series' name was enough to get me psyched. However, after playing the game through and then some, I have come to the sad conclusion that all Phantasy Star Online happens to be is a boring Diablo II clone without being enjoyable like the aforementioned PC hit.

  • Excerpt: Phantasy Star Online is a science fiction style role-playing game that is actually two games in one. There is the online game. Here you create or join a team of up to four members. You can play through each level from the beginning, or you can join a game already in progress. Then there is the offline game mode where you play by yourself. Your character can be used in both offline and online modes.

Phantasy Star Online is Ultima for Console

GIN
26 February 2001
  • Excerpt: Ok, it's no secret to anyone out there; I don't like RPGs! I do not see how anyone can sit there for hours on end watching FMV look-alike characters getting slaughtered by opponents who use the cheap all out attack (cough, Super Nova, cough, Final Fantasy series, cough) over and over again. Not to mention that I hate having to stay in one small area all day beating foes that cheaply pop out of nowhere in order to get a high enough level to beat a boss.
