Summary: Phantasy Star is a fairly popular franchise dating since the days of Sega Genesis type games as a straight up turn-based rpg. Through the years, it has gone under much development and evolutions until it hit the basic Phantasy Star formula we know today, in Phantasy Star Online (originally on Dreamcast). Since then, the real-time combat with npc mates have been carried over (with good improvements) to the further installments in the franchise.
Summary: I received the right packaging but the game was wrong(it was a final fantasy game not phantsy star). I had to return it...but the sad thing was they didn't even have a replacement for it. You think they would of since they did give me the wrong once. But anyways..
Summary: this game is realy a good one in the category press x and y during hours to kill quite similar monsters and so on. the history is as dull as you can get but if u want to spend hours in a cheap game this is kind of a good option since your main objective is to achieve increase levels (15 hours and im in the level 52 or so). the dreamcast version is a kind of obvious reference with some of the same monsters and stages in a update and better designed scheme.
Summary: Hey all, this was a great game,over all its a good way to pass time on a flight or roadtrip my only little problem was just da assisting from the cpu lol,took it a bit to catch on and make my helpers help.other then that I have no complaints and am looking foward to beating it soon and making my way to the second game ;).
Summary: I'll be honest, I only got this because I was getting a PSP and wanted to have more than one game to play, and I was already fond of Phantasy Star Universe. Nothing complicated there, right? Right. At any rate, the game features a story separate from the others, featuring a prototype CAST, Vivienne. Throughout conversations, you are given choices in how you respond to her, which I believe garner different endings.
Summary: The main story is drab. The 40 minute per shot of reading useless back story is nauseating. But if you hook it up in the online mode (just enable the Wifi on the PSP and start your own map, no need to connect to anything) you will find a wonderful, addictive game that strongly reminds me of the classic Phantasy Star Online (DreamCast/GameCube). It's a classic hack-and-slash with a space theme. The graphics are good, the controls are tight.
Summary: I've been a fan of the Phantasy Star series since Phantasy Star Online on the Dreamcast. Back then it was obviously meant for multiplayer, but still enjoyable in single player. Phantasy Star Pocket is a continuation of the story from Phantasy Star Universe. I like the fact that any character race can have any job and even switch job types by paying a relatively small amount of meseta (the in game curancy) but I miss some aspects of the old MAG system.

Summary: I'm a big fan of dungeon crawlers, games that have their roots in the very old "Rogue," and were brought into the mainstream most successfully by Blizzard with their Diablo series. Basically, in these games, you wander around in a maze, killing bad things, taking their stuff for your own, and finding the gateway to the next area. Along the way, you get stronger, and so do the enemies.
