  • Summary: (Currently available in Japan only) Blue Burst is essentially the PC version of Phantasy Star Online: Episode 1 & 2 with a few revisions. Shortcut commands are now visible at the bottom of the screen. Momoka, a new character, appears in the game lobby and provides additional quests. A new team system allows players to communicate with other team members from across ships. Another major revision is a means of cheating prevention. Because Blue Burst is an Online-only experience, character data is stored on the game servers and is well out of reach of those who might attempt to illegally enhance their characters. Expand

    A wonderful predecessor to the amazing PSO 2. Totally worth playing on one of the fan-made servers.

    The game features many large maps,
    which are pseudo-randomly generated. The music is beyond fantastic. The graphics - for their time - are beautiful. It takes many hours to be able to get to even level 100, and that is only half-way through the levels. You really need to grind to get the rare items, which is disappointing, but it sure gives you an objective!

    The boss battles are pretty neat, featuring dragons, worms, computers, mutants and massive demons. I would put this game above Sonic Heroes, Shining Force, Ecco the dolphin, Shinobi 3 and Vectorman, this has got to be my favorite game made by SEGA.

    Still the ultimate dungeon crawler that was one of the grandfathers to MMO games. There has not been any game since that comes close to PSOBB. It was truly one of a kind and sadly yet to be remade if even on a P2P style of play. Expand
