Summary: This game actually wasn't bad. By the time I'd gotten to it though, the servers had already been shut down so I couldn't get the full experience of it all. The combat system could have used some work and the dubbing was pretty lousy, but these games have always kind of shined with their multiplayer. I played a little of it via system link with some friends and I could see how well it could all work.
Summary: Really is not better than the PS2 version. Graphics are barely improved... nothing is really different, and it's just a repeat of the same game on a newer system IMO. The gameplay is smoother, and everything kinda flows better, but aside from that... not better at all. I advise to buy Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of the Illuminus on PS2 for a better game experience.
Summary: I for one truly enjoyed this game, unfortunately i rented it from gamefly only recently. The add-on, Ambition of the Iluminus is no longer available from the marketplace, and online play has been discontinued for those who do not possess AOTI. With a brand new Phantasy Star online in the future in 2013, All servers for PSU will close down this November, or have already done so. I recommend this game for those who do not care about online play.
Amazing Game, Don't Like The Paid Online. Still love the game overall!

Summary: Awesome game! One of the few games that NEVER get old. I'd rate it 5 stars if you didn't have to pay for the online aspect, which is really the greatest part of the game! I played years ago and it was never a paid service. If the fee was lower ($15 here in Canada), I'd definitely pay for it as well.
