What Gamespot Users have to say about Phantasy Star Universe

  • User Rating 8

    A fun action RPG to pass the time, but that's about it.

    Rated on May 27, 2008 by NinjaBrownie

    The action in the game is great for an action RPG, and the weapons look cool. Plus fighting can be enjoying if you can stand repetition. But while fighting is fun, the story is just plain boring. ...

    Well, if you are a hardcore MMORPG gamer, this may be your game.

    When I first watched the gameplay videos online, I expected a reasonable storyline, with some great gameplay. However, what I got was far from what I expected. Priced at $50 new, this game may be th...

    Not what it use to be but still satisfying

    Rated on October 26, 2006 by ant1218

    Let me start by saying I loved PSO on DC / GC, so I had high hopes for PSU but im pretty disappointed so far. Let me start by saying the control scheme is a pain in the azz. It took me about 2 hours...

    A really big letdown. I was hoping for a much better game. Overall a shell of what it used to be.

    To be fair, i will review this with all of the areas of importance. Summary: Phantasy Star Universe isn't that bad of a game if you're prepared to dish out 10 $ every month, but with great free onl...

    The Phantasy Star series returns with Phantasy star universe, which in my opinion, is better than all the rest.

    Rated on October 28, 2006 by Tok3d

    Phantasy star universe is the best Phantasy Star game yet. Period. It adds a new story mode into play, in which you can enjoy the full-fledged, 30-40 hour game that has its twists and turns. But more ...

    I enjoyed countless hours on the previous Phantasy Star games, but nothing would prepare me for Sega's new and improved Phantasy Star Universe. I loved PSO I&II, but Sega improved and expanded wit...
