  1. One of the best videogames ever created, something that should forever be remembered.
  2. Version 2 is essentially the same game with new material scattered along the outskirts. [Nov 2001, p.124]

    For all these great additions, there's that black cloud of worry when the concerns of lag, timing out, and cheating come into the equation.

    The whole experience feels more like a dedicated group of fans got hold of a level editor rather than a fully equipped second effort.
  5. With its better balance, new features, and addictive gameplay, PSO Version 2 stands out as one of the last great games for the system.
  6. If you haven’t tried this series yet, you are really missing out on the nicotine/booze/sugar/sex of video gaming. [Nov 2001, p.214]
  7. PSOv2 really doesn't give fans enough to warrant the steep dip in the wallet. With the right online experience, PSO can be a really fun game, but between the original and Version 2, the scales just don¹t add up.

    NOTE: This rating is only for offline mode. Even without going online you get your money's worth! Every character has his own style, and NOTE: This rating is only for offline mode. Even without going online you get your money's worth! Every character has his own style, and that is like playing nine different games for the same game. As a Zelda fan (Mostly), I found the experience quite wonderful and am going back for more. Well Done Sega!!! Expand

    Single player is really boring/dull/sickens me. Multiplayer Online is funner but not all that great. Worth the $ no... Gettting it free = yes.
