Phantasy Star Portable 2
A Very Solid Game
I started on this series at phantasy star portable around 2010, and after playing that game to near death(3 save files, over 1500 hours total), I wanted more after getting all that I could. lo and behold, Phantasy star portable 2 (PSP2)comes out months after I learn about it.
To those familiar with the franchise, PSP2 is the epitome of the phantasy star series in America, japan hasn't given us any of the newer ones in the series yet. but as far as PSP2 goes, it's still among the greatest games you can get for your psp/vita. The story is your pretty basic evil king revives scenario, but the story isn't what you'll be playing for, the gameplay, and the style of the world are fantastic, the controls are simple, but effective, and you can easily put in over 500 hours before you even realize it. the music suits the atmosphere, but there's not too many memorable tracks besides some of the bosses and the story ending theme.
Overall, while I might not have painted the best picture with my words, the game speaks for itself, go pick it up and give it a shot. although I should warn you, the game is pretty hard to find nowadays, so if you get a copy, and you like this game, do not lose it.
PSU on PSP
This game is great and is a must have for ps fans. Although im new to the series, I instantly fell in love with it. Now i played PSU online for about a month (due to the dumb fee of 10$) and it was fantastic. This is all of that but better! Online is really fun and there is TONS of weapons and loot. The story wasnt all that bad either and was pretty long and its pretty epic. But the thing i really liked is you can use your story character offline AND online! Both modes are fun and havent bored me a bit. I just love the satisfaction of getting that new weapon or costume and going online to show it off! Although there is one thing that did dissapoint me was that there is only one lobby in the game for shops and such. Again not a deal breaker. So if your new to the series or a fan and wondering if this game is worth it, IT IS! This is a great offline and online game and you should be playing it right now!!
I will admit that PSU was a fun MMO and it was unfortunate that it really didn't take off with more updates and stuff...But for all of us PSU fans, we are in luck! PSP2 is pretty much a FREE version of PSU but BETTER! Of course there are some differences...(you have to join a party before you can interact in the town, also your in a different 'town' than in PSU) But you get to visit similar (or the same) places as in PSU plus more content! And its FREE ONLINE with WiFi!! Also, don't worry about trying to level up two different characters for Story and Online modes..A huge perk is that you can use the same character for both online play and story play! If you are any kind of a Phantasy Star fan, this is what we have been waiting for since PSO!
I imported the JP Version.
Imported the JP version of this game, and I can tell you now. Everything you have ever loved about PSO/PSU is in this game, but done right. This is the definitive PS experience, and It's on a handheld. Also, the infrastructure mode is always updated with new events and missions that can even be played offline. This game overall offers 1000's of hours of gameplay due to all the hunting for weapons, unlocking titles, level chatacters, and so much more. 10/10 Also, hai Pso-world :3
This is a great addition to the phantasy star franchise. Download the demo to get a taste of the greatness this game is. The gameplay is classic yet its feels like a fresh experience from the psp1. If your a fan this is a must get for veteran and rookie players alike.
Phantasy Star Portable 2
This game is a must have if you like adventure games with great storys and multiplayer and the online play is very great from playing the demo its also showed improvements from the first game so if ur interested in a game that gives more then just a story line go for it!!!!
Not many people may buy this game because it's one of those "you either like it or not games" but this is one of the many good games on the psp library. The graphics are really good for the psp and so is the sound but game play can get really repetitive by cheap deaths or health depleting much to fast. The online is really good besides some constant lag it well helps the replay value. If you have a psp and your looking for a good rpg try this out.
Changed the way I looked at PS's!!!
Literally can not wait til it comes out! Been playing the demo a week now and I'm totally hooked on it!
This game is one of the best out there and plus it was made by the sonic team and it's not even about sonic. Game play was amazing, music went well with all missions. Graphics were good, the weapon's to me were badass but your teamate's AI was okay but not great besides that the game is still really, really good. The story line was exciting and fun. The boss battles were epic not like the ones in games like Kingdom Hearts were as you know when there going to die but in PSU2 it was unexpected which was the fun of it. The free missions you acquire throughout the game as you lvl. up the missions get harder instead of staying the same you can choose which lvl mission its C is the lowest were as lvl S is the highest. The cool thing is unlike every other game when you beat it you can still continue and lvl up your character the story doesn't end you can still keep your weapons your money photon arts (skills you can buy or obtain on speacial missions) and everything else!! if you are a hardcore gamer and likes RPG's i recommend this game for you
New Game, Old Tricks
Phantasy Star has always been a badass game in my opinion. Ever since they started added PSO features, the game has only gotten better. Now, we see a new interface with of course new weapons, items and armor, but we also have the feature of Level 10 Blast Gauge abilities and the Mirage Blast for Humans and Newmans. I am so getting this tomorrow before class. Can't wait!!
