Summary: If there's anything the Gamecube lacks (or most of Nintendo consoles, for that matter) it's an assortment of roleplaying games and online functionality. Because the console doesn't even come with its own modem, whereas the Dreamcast did some years before this console's release, Nintendo hadn't really cared for online play at the time, but regardless they still could've made an effort.
Summary: I adore this game, I always have and was happy to finally receive it through the post. Beyond a couple of freezing issues (which is probably my battered old GameCube, not the game itself) it plays almost perfectly. Going through the episodes again has been a blast and this seriously was an RPG game ahead of it's time.
Summary: I say a gamble as I was unsure,despite hours looking online,whether this worKed on the Gamecube without needing to set up an account or need either of the adaptors (Modem or Broadband),thankfully it's exactly like the Dreamcast version and not the Xbox one,so yes it'll work offline,you will need a memory card though. Almost identical to the Dreamcast,with only a slightly rejigged interface and a 'cast' shadow,not a blob.
Summary: I got this game about 3 years ago i saw it in a shop i thought 'i got some time to kill looks alright' i took it home and played and didn't know how to clear the calendar so i didn't play it for about 2 months but got the courage and tried again and well... Wow this game even though it has low character design and a pretty thin main storyline this game has no end really because you can unlock hard,very hard and ultimate mode challenging your character to the edge.
Summary: Many may feel that they do not want to fork out £40 for a last-gen console game. This is not without a point, the graphics are lacking, there are precious few levels and the online support is weakened by Nintendos fear of the internet. Its the only online game out. However, taking all of these things into account, I still cant possibly give Phantasy Star Online anything remotely less than 5 stars, why? Because of the multiplayer!
Excerpt: "When you play offline, theres only so far you can go.. In This RPG, you play as either a Hunter, Ranger or Force charecter subset, each subset has 4 different types of that charector e.g HUmar, FOmar, HUcast. sent to the planet ragol to search for the crew of Pioneer 1, who mysteriously vanished, mere moments after your ship, Pioneer 2, enters the systems.

Pros: Long Game Life
Cons: You Need A Modem, then it cost £5 . 99 per month to play online
Phantasy Star returns and brings yet another excellent game!

Summary: I love the Phantasy Star games, let me tell you that, ALL OF THEM!!! From the original game series from 1988 - 1994 on the Sega Master System/Mega Drive and this classic multiplayer game from heaven. First of all, this is a must have for a RPG fans but also people who like ation type games as well. The game play is that there are 12 different character to choose from in three diffeent sectors: Hunters, Rangers and Forces.
