    The problem is, Phantasy Star Online 2 still feels like a game nearing a decade old mark. Like man MMOs of our current generation, however fun they continue to be, and however nostalgic PSO players may feel when playing, it still has a quality of being a little dated. Still, there is plenty of fight left in PSO2, and if you haven’t played it, or any version of Phantasy Star Online before, then it’s going to be new to you. Phantasy Star Online 2 is a fantastic game with a lot to offer. With a generous Free 2 Play payment model, PSO2 is certainly one of the best options out there for gamers looking to try something different, without overspending.

    Phantasy Star Online 2 is a great combat system wrapped up in a bloated and sometimes confusing MMO-lite package that uses its charming anime flair to stand out from the competition.

Loved PSO on the Dreamcast back in the day and this game builds off of that with a limitless amount of quests and ways to customize your characters. Very generous free to play but I'd recommend buying at least one month of premium since you get a lot more and its only about $15. Expand

My perception of PSU at the time was it felt like a good starting point but I wanted more. Even thought PSO2 is not necessarily new, I am finding it entertaining to play alone or with friends. I gave it a 9 as I feel there are elements that could be described in depth upfront that would make learning nuanced aspects of the game somewhat easier to recognize and understand. Expand

    Phantasy Star Online 2 is a Sci-Fi Fantasy MMORPG. The game is the newest installment to SEGA's ever-growing Phantasy Star franchise thatPhantasy Star Online 2 is a Sci-Fi Fantasy MMORPG. The game is the newest installment to SEGA's ever-growing Phantasy Star franchise that started on the Master System in 1987. PSO2 has a huge, rich progression system that allows players to not only level their characters up but also increase the power of their gear. The first thing you do is create your character. PSO2 allows you to choose from four races (Male or Female) and start with one of six classes. Hunter, Ranger, Force, Braver, Bouncer, or Summoner can be chosen to start with, but you can change your class as you play the game to increase the abilities you have access to. If you played enough you could potentially max out ALL six classes on the same character! The Character customization is incredible, allowing you to look and play how you want to! The main gameplay is mission-based, giving you various missions with many different tasks. Each mission has varying difficulties, each with a recommended character level. These quests are nearly endless allowing for hours of action. The combat system is incredible with open action battles and seamless control over your characters actions. If you get a bit tired of running missions, take your ARKS operative over to the casino and burn off some steam, and Casino Coins. There is also purchasable cosmetics, allowing for even further customizing of your character. SEGA has succeeded at making another incredible story in the Phantasy Star Universe, as well as giving us an incredible Sci-Fi setting loaded with Fantasy elements. JRPG gone MMORPG in a nearly endless game is a dream come ture to fans of this Genre! Expand

    Game mechanics do not port well to Xbox and nobody seems to join parties. It's like playing an mmo solo and you can't do a lot of the missions solo.
