  • Summary: A wonderful predecessor to the amazing PSO 2. Totally worth playing on one of the fan-made servers. The game features many large maps, which are pseudo-randomly generated. The music is beyond fantastic. The graphics - for their time - are beautiful. It takes many hours to be able to get to even level 100, and that is only half-way through the levels. You really need to grind to get the rare items, which is disappointing, but it sure gives you an objective!

  • Summary: Still the ultimate dungeon crawler that was one of the grandfathers to MMO games. There has not been any game since that comes close to PSOBB. It was truly one of a kind and sadly yet to be remade if even on a P2P style of play.

It had further incarnations on the Megadrive and has now been bought fully up to date for the Dreamcast, and soon the X-Box and Gamecube, and possibly ...

  • Excerpt: "...of one "proper" online game. Phantasy Star Online is the second - an addition to the groundbreaking Megadrive RPG series of the same name. A classic, dungeon-crawling, item-collecting adventure, PSO is very similar to games like Gauntlet or Diablo for PC. After choosing a character from the list of nine types available - specialising in ranged combat, close melee fighting, psychic "techniques" or a combination of these - you can customise his or ...
  • Pros: Hugely addictive online play, Efficient match - making system
  • Cons: Dull in single player, Online play expense is prohibitive

This online (or offline) RPG game will set the standard of all RPG games for years to come, this is the best game I've seen around for ages, I mean, what it lacks in epic storylines like any of the Final Fantasy games, it makes up in sheer fun in being able to ...
  • Pros: online play, the cool stuff you can find in the game and build the ultimate fighting character
  • Cons: a few petty annoyances, nothing major or that will flaw the game
