Phantasy Star Online Is To The Phantasy Star Series...

  • May 23, 2001

...what "Final Fantasy Tacitcs" was to the Final Fantasy series! They both didn't have a lot to do with the series they were based off of. Yet they are both so addictive and fun you just don't care! "Phantasy Star Online" is one of Dreamcast's best game and it's a no brainer as to why it was! First of all it was made by Sonic Team (Which is lead by video game master Yugi Naka!), who has a record of making games based on how fun they are (Games like "Sonic Adventure," "Samba de Amigo," and "Chu Chu Rocket" to name a few!), and not on how good they look (Although they do look good too!!!)! The main idea is to log online with up to four friends and chat with them as you kill monsters, unlock doors, find rare weapons, and blow up boxs!!! Although this sounds like it would get boring fast it actually keeps you entertained with the chating part as you and your team-mates can make jokes, flirt with each other, cuss out the bad guys(Although there is a cencor that blocks cussing! Sorry, but kids could be playing!), creat your own charicter, and blow up boxes!!! Sound fun yet? Well if this doesn't sound fun to you yet make sure you still have a pulse, you may be dead! Although I do admitt that unless your online this stuff will be more than boring after 30 minutes! And since the story is so non-existent playing this game for the story doesn't make much sense either! Basicly, unless you plan on playing this online, you won't get your moneys worth if you play it offline! But Sonic Team has proved one thing: They sure do make some darn good games!

About this topic


Phantasy Star Onlinecontinues in the tradition of the popular series and is the first worldwide, online role-playing game for a console. The story revolves around the Pioneer Project, a plan conceived in response to the imminent destruction of the home worlds. Seven years prior, Pioneer 1 was sent to establish a colony on Planet Ragol, which included construction of the Central Dome. As Pioneer 2 is about to arrive with the main wave of refugees, a gigantic explosion shakes the entire planet, cutting off all communication with the members of Pioneer 1. Players from around the world must now unite via SegaNet to unravel the mystery.

In order to form parties, the game's People Finder option allows players to locate each other on giant servers. Once inside the Virtual Lobby, players can choose up to three other team members. Language barriers between players are broken down by a communication system featuring a universal icon system, preset phrases, and keyword translations. Players can create their own character by modifying their physical appearance and personality traits. Real-time combat features many of the original weapons and enemies from previous Phantasy Star games. Gamers can play completely online, completely offline, or a combination of the two.
