Rated 8 out of 10 by Shotgun451 Good but a Sad Addition to the Phantasy Star Series
Ok, this game was disapointing to even me, a hardcore phantasy Star Universe fan. The free play was better in this but the story mode AND WAS WAY TOO SHORT. This is good because of the fact that it gives you more weapon classes and locations but was still a dissapointment to me. This game is like most of your other RPG's but hasone thing different, It has master controls that are simple to play. Dont ask me if this is like Final Fantasy because i havn't played Final Fantasy :( but this is amazing for anyone looking for a good RPG that is from Japan. The upside to this is that it has way more items that you can get, way more room spaces, more weps, more armor, more parts for casts, more clohes, and for once a story mode where u create the dude and play with it. But that sadly dosnt make up for the story mode. Sadly i have to give this a 8/10 when its predecessor a 10/10.
Rated 7 out of 10 by jjsmart Your average si-fi game.
This phantasy star is like your average si-fi game. This game reminds me of The Legend of Zelda The Windwaker and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles. How it is like them is because it is mostly just killing monsters and bosses. If don't no what to do and just start wandering around in any level it will make you feel like you have to throw up. I was dissapointed because I heard on the other Phantsy Star games you could kill people for no reason, and that there was lots of blood. Human blood, monster blood and so on. The character customization is okay. There are a mdium amount of choices . You can pick witch kind of fighter you want to be such as, Newmans, Beasts, Casts ,and Humans. I picked a cast because it makes you look like a robot. This game is not perfect but it is good.
Rated 10 out of 10 Very good, need to understand first though.
This is an amazing EXPANSION to what Phantasy Star Universe is and was. Those who have said something about this "game" is mostly wrong as it is not a game. It is an expansion. I am not entirely sure how PSN was for PS2, but I can assure you there was no store for PSN at the time, and if there was, this would not have been released on a disc, it would have been released on the PSN store as DLC, this "game" is nothing but an expansion to the Phantasy Star Universe saga. I am writing this review to show anyone who gets this that it is not a "game" but rather an expansion. The reason for being short is simply put, it is an expansion and nothing more.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Rodimus2007 Been waiting a while on This One!!!
This is described as an MMORPG but you can also play it in Single-Player Offline Mode which is 10 chapter long. The original one was 13, this one you can create your own character and take it through the single-player offline mode or transfer data from the orginal to unlock hidden content. I cant wait to see how this is connected to the orginal one it was an awesome game in itself and had a wonderful story, and engaging characters that are unforgetable. I will be picking up this game tomorrow at my local gamestop. This is my last Ps2 I am getting until next year so hopefully I will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 10 by Halospartan Not what I expected...
I love the phantasy star series the gameplay and storyline is great, but in playstation 2 version it cuts off and goes straight to credits after Laia Martinez father dies. I was very disappointed.
