"Even better than PSO..."
4 stars"

Being a big fan of Phantasy Star Online 1, 2 and 3 on GameCube, I had to get a copy of Phantasy Star Universe. Currently I'm waiting to get a crack at the online multiplayer mode as purchase of a Guardians License is needed via Xbox Live, and Microsoft still has not added that option into Marketplace as of this morning.

However, to the initiated and uninitiated, who may know about Phantasy Star Online, PSO featured no solid single player story. Yes, there was story but it was told via nodes found scattered throughout the levels. Where PSO shined was in online/offscreen mutliplayer.

Phantasy Star Universe has solved this by having a complete offline story included. There are cutscenes using in-game graphics, some with fmv and others done in anime. These follow the life of Ethan Weber, the main character. The Xbox Live Gamer Points come a-plenty with a large amount awarded for each boss you take down. So if you're looking for a rewarding RPG, you may find it here.

Once again, I'm looking forward to online play and once I manage to play for a while, I will submit another review. But for now, I'm enjoying the offline story. Give it a look in! ^_^

"Loved it"

I like this game because this game offers two complete RPG experiences – a single-player action-adventure spanning multiple planets, and a robust online multi-player component. In offline mode, this action-RPG offers more than 40 hours of gameplay, an emotionally engaging story, traditional cut scenes, and strong character development. In online mode, players are given the opportunity to travel with a squad of other adventurers, enter urban sprawls teeming with hundreds of players, and build their unique avatars into powerful warriors. Cool aye?

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.
