  1. These are fantastic (albeit amazingly difficult) games that every RPG should experience. [Feb 2003, p.75]
  2. With the most gameplay in a single title for the Game Boy Advance, it’s hard to pass this title up... If you’re a fan of RPGs, you obviously MUST have this title.
  3. I can not stress how much you need to stop reading this and go pick up this game now! There have been only a few good RPG’s released since GBA launch, this game makes it one more.
  4. Huge bang for the buck for old-timers or newbies. [Spring 2003, p.36]

    These faithful ports feature re-sized graphics and direct emulation, yet lack simple fixes that may have resolved issues still haunting the series- particularly the defense bug in Phantasy Star 1. Full Review »
