  • Excerpt: I have to admit, I’m not the sharpest tool in the box first thing in the morning. I’m not sure if it’s the lack of caffeine, the mild hangover, or the console induced late night that’s to blame, but I’m starting to realise that I should really stop and think before I do anything before the 10am watershed.

  • Summary: Phantasy Star Collection is a nice trip down memory lane for fans of the series but it's equally as good for those who want to see where the Phantasy Star series started. As each games progresses it gets better and overall you'll get anything between 50-100 hours of play through all the games. The gameplay can be a little repititious and tedious at times but overall it's not a bad set of RPG's.

Phantasy Star Collection

  • Excerpt: Sega has treated handheld gamers with even more ports of old games. This collection features Phantasy Star (published in 1988 for the Sega Master System), Phantasy Star II , and Phantasy Star III: Generation of Doom (both released for the Sega Genesis). All three of these classic titles on one tiny cart. It's almost too good to be true, but thankfully - it is that good.
  • Pros: 100+ hours of gameplay, Phantasy Star I & II are excellent titles
  • Cons: Nothing new here, Phantasy Star III didn't stand the test of time

  • Excerpt: Nostalgia is a funny thing -- it often has the tendency to make games from the past look much better than they truly were. However, just like some wise pundit pointed out, 'you can't go home again' -- and you can't go back to old games, either -- at least not without shattering the fond memories of how things were. This is particularly true of games from the 8-bit and earlier era.

  • Excerpt: PSC features the first Phantasy Star, which was originally released for Sega's Master System console, and Phantasy Stars II and III, which were released for Sega's Genesis console. These games have been ported over to the GBA with a few minor tweaks, but with nothing in the way or a graphical update. Much like playing a collection of Namco's arcade classics, PSC is all about the storyline and the gameplay...

Phantasy Star Collection

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: While I played my share of Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy on 8-bit console machines, I never really touched on Phantasy Star. Sure, I knew about it. I knew that it was good enough that someone decided to do a spoof of it on the PC, as we on the PC never got many of the console style RPGs. Coming to it now, after religiously playing Phantasy Star Online, the whole Phantasy Star corpus on one Game Boy Advance cartridge appears like the best ticket to RPG heaven.

  • Excerpt: Sega's venerable Phantasy Star series has found a home on a lot of consoles lately, but fans haven't forgotten the glory days of old school RPG enjoyment. Phantasy Star Collection packs more than a hundred hours of classic RPG gameplay on a GBA cart, which ain't bad at all. Click here.

  • Summary: Three games, one cartridge, nice price. But are they any good? Well, that just depends... but I'm smiling.
