Phantasy Star est ce qu’il se faisait de mieux à l’époque. Proposant une aventure de longue haleine, des environnements diversifiés ainsi que de nombreuses originalités, tant scénaristiques qu’au niveau du gameplay, le jeu reste une référence du genre. A réserver néanmoins aux joueurs les plus chevronnés, les affres du temps n’étant pas des plus clémentes avec ce type de jeu.

Phantasy Star is not perfect, but its flaws are all very minor, making this game easily one the best of the 8-bit console roleplaying games. The title is well-made, well-presented, enthralling and innovative, and while the leap in power with the 16-bit generation meant that the top RPGs of that era, including a couple of Phantasy Star's own sequels, are better products on the whole, that is no reason to overlook this early gem from a time before Square dominated the genre. For RPG fans, this is an essential Virtual Console purchase.
