One word to describe this game is "Repetative". There are 3 modes Easy, Hard, and Super Hard. By default you play easy, which allows even the newest gamer to easily get through the game. You have to get to level 30 before you can even try out the other modes, or really get any challenge out of the game. The controls are at best: okay, and the Moving the camera around is a bit annoying. You are able to use 3 hot-keys which allow you to attack, use magic, or roll. Since there are 11 magic techniques, and 2 attack techniques(one weak attack, and 1 strong one), you are very limited when it comes to actually using the hot-keys. The music get's really old, and annoying after a while. The only thing you can customize is your weapon. Though most weapons are the same just a different color. For the Nintendo DS the graphics are fantastic, the detail put into the boss's is on par with PS2 graphics(Not saying alot, but pretty good for a handheld system). The game on easy takes about a day to play, and get's progressively harder with each difficulty mode. The Storyline is unique and original; it is probally the best part about the game. The first time playing through the game, it's exciting your absorbed in the story, and you won't want to put the game down. As you unlock harder modes it gets boring and repetative. Once you clear Super hard mode, there isn't alot more to do other than playing the same exact levels you've already played with your friends using the multiplayer function. I give this game a 7/10 because after you beat it, it'll go into your gaming library never to be picked up again. Phantasy Star Zero is a fun experience for about 3 days.
