One of the best on-line RPGs ever.

The Good
Awesome weapons,characters.An incredibly intersesting story.It kept me guessing.Exciting quests and boss battles.I like the fact that you can fight boss's over and over again.

The Bad
There could have been more areas to explore.I would have liked to see a more variety of environments.I wanted more robotic enemies.

The Bottom Line
If your getting tired of fantasy/mythical/medieval style RPGs,pick up this game.

Phantasy Star Online is a nice mix between RPG and action games.

The Good
the level design is nice, and i liked the randomization for characters and such. it has a better plot than most games nowadays.

The Bad
there are too many enemy's in each room, the camera angle is confusing, and it's hard to hit your enemy's.

The Bottom Line
a good mix of RPG and action, but don't get it unless you want to pay for the "online" part because, otherwise it's kind of boring unless someone is playing with you.
