    This pint-sized racer is so playable and packed with fan-service that Sega fans will want to hop on board as soon as possible - but it doesn't quite match Mario Kart when it comes to raw enjoyment and multiplayer brilliance.

    A vast improvement over its offline-only predecessor, Phantasy Star Portable 2 is a worthy challenger to Monster Hunter's crown, but isn't a game to be taken lightly as its depth and complexity is considerable.
