Easily one of the best or the best action dungeon crawler made to date. Touting innovation after innovation, Sega nails it! From a previously well established character generators to well defined combat system that is deep but accessible to new players. The pace of the game is fluid with enemies keeping the player on their toes and deeply interested with such well implemented features like blocks, rolls and counters. The game is already doing what many of us have always wanted as kids and is delivering features that even colossal games like Diablo 3 will not have. Being able to go into first person and targeting enemy weak spots or doing a timed 5 hit combo with customized weapon to your liking are only things that will be seen in this dungeon crawler.
The multi-player is great and offers new modes of game-play like "VS" mode. Sega has gone out of their way to make playing worth other members easy and with great thought out user preference system, it really takes teaming up or meeting with players to a whole new level.
Design and sound wise it is AAA, with well designed areas and bosses the game sure shows a great level of polish and easily one of the must have portables of all time.
Sega really listened to its fan-base and fixed all the old issues the previous version suffered from and is on its way to push the dungeon crawler once again.

It took me back to the Dreamcast days of playing PSO online but actually plays better. I never picked up the 1st PSO portable due to the lack of the online component and I was not too into the PSO Universe although I passed it and played a little online. This one is the best PSO since the Dremcast/Xbox days.… Expand
As close as you will be able to get to having an MMO on your PSP. The amount of effort and care that went into to detailing the little things found in this game is noticeable. While the story mode is OK to get you going, to get the most out of this game your going to definitely need access to the internet to play online or a couple of buddies with the game. While some camera and lock on issues can sometimes frustrate, overall this is a very fun, addicting dungeon crawl game for the PSP.… Expand
