"Good Buy"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you're a fan of Japanese style RPGs like final fantasy, Xenogears etc. This is a must buy. The downside to this game is the repetitive hack and slash, which is fairly easy and gets boring, also the game is very linear, with absolutely no options for changes in dialogue and the missions are identical irrespective to your mission performance, finally it suffers from the typical lost in translation stereotype lame japanese dialogue at points. The pros to this game is the fantastic graphics, easy to use controls that have been integrated from an X-box platform to computer, engaging story line with alot of cinematics, an online option (must pay for though), extra game modes allowing endless play as your own highly customisable character (except you can't change attributes, everything else can be changed) and for the price that GP is asking for it!

For those who have never tried final fantasy etc. This game is a good starting point to the genre. Don't be fooled by imitations like WoW and DS, which claim to be RPGs but are really just hack and slash.

Description

Phantasy Star Universe is the first single-player Phantasy Star game to arrive in more than a decade. The Phantasy Star franchise started as a series of turn-based RPGs (Phantasy StarTM I-IV, 1988-1994), evolved into an online multiplayer action-adventure (Phantasy StarTM Online Episode I-IV, 2000-2005), and now hits its stride as the best of both, a single player action-RPG with a multiplayer online component.

This robust action-RPG offers more than 40 hours of single-player gameplay, an emotionally engaging story, traditional cut scenes, and strong character development. The title's hero is Ethan Waber, a 17-year old cadet intent on saving his sister, who is living on a planet under siege by mysterious life forms called THE SEED. The combodriven action gameplay in Phantasy Star Universe provides for a fast-paced, engaging experience, while the game's rich character customization options and enormous world are sure to satisfy RPG fans seeking depth.

The fee-based online mode in Phantasy Star Universe continues where the offline mode's story leaves off. Players are given the opportunity to travel with a squad of other adventurers, enter urban sprawls teeming with hundreds of players, and build their avatars into powerful warriors.

Features:

  • A full-featured single-player campaign spanning more than 40 hours of gameplay.
  • Three different planets to explore.
  • A strong ensemble joins Ethan on his journey; each character has their own unique skill set to bring into battle.
  • Controllable vehicles make transportation easier and more fun.
  • More than 20 dungeons in the single-player adventure.
  • First appearance of Phantasy Star on a PlayStation platform.
  • A giant game world that will evolve with new content online over the course of several years.
