Phantasy Star Universe


Our beloved 360 has not had a very big selection of RPGs thus far, and unfortunately what little we have has not been that great, but the one things that has remained steady is the unique gameplay that can be found in them. Enchanted Arms gave us a...

For non-RPG fans, this might be a little more tolerable because of the free-action battle system, and even for RPG fans it's at least a small departure from the norm, but aside from that, it really is the norm, and doesn't offer anything we haven't...

Let's fighting love!

Fans of the Phantasy Star series are still waiting for a rebirth of the franchise where is older elements and edgy social commentary will return. Sadly, it doesn't happen in Phantasy Star Universe. Instead, what we have here is a sad attempt at conning...

Phantasy Star Universe gives players the best of both worlds by offering the depth of single player adventure and the thrill of online cooperative gameplay. Played offline, Phantasy Star Universe join

Phantasy Star Universe review for the XBOX360


The Little Bang.

Addictive; Slick interface

Repetitive; Terrible A.I.; It's a small, small world; That no one visits; Because it's ten bucks a month

It's commonly accepted that the Universe is huge and pretty damn complex. It's also widely believed that our species is tiny and pretty damn dumb. So when comparing the inner workings of the Universe with humanity's stress over which size latte to buy,...

Phantasy Star Universe


With massively multiplayer online role-playing games dominating the PC platform, the concept of expanding the genre into the next-generation console space has long been alluring. The popularity of Final Fantasy XI proved consoles are fertile ground for...

Unique world and visual style ; New single player campaign

Antiquated role-playing mechanics ; Visuals ported from PlayStation 2 version ; No connection between single player and online experience

Phantasy Star Universe extends the cult classic role-playing game with more online gameplay and a new single player campaign. While series fans will find much to enjoy in this new entry, the outdated gameplay and rather underwhelming visuals pale in...

Phantasy Star Universe Review


It doesn't compare well to past games, but Phantasy Star Universe is enjoyable in its own, though far more expensive, ways.

The missions present another major issue, since there currently isn't a wide variety of them. Because of its emphasis on character development, players are left with little choice but to repeatedly replay the same mission until they've defeated enough...

Phantasy Star Universe Review (Xbox 360)


The video game industry is all about delivering the next big thing. Whatever past games have done, developers must enhance and perfect the dynamics they used in order to create something new and powerful. It sounds easy enough, but it's amazing how...

Phantasy Star Universe seems far too content to wallow in its mediocrity. The story kind of lumbers along until its conclusion, and while there’s fun to be had with character progression, the plotline never really grabs hold of you and demands your...

Phantasy Star Universe


Originally released years ago for the SEGA Dreamcast, Phantasy Star Online quickly became a fan favorite with MMORPG hungry gamers looking for the same experience, but on a console. It was one of the first of its kind but after hitting the other...

Conclusion:The single player campaign will take approximately 18 hours to run through. While most skip the offline section to jump right in to the multiplayer, players new to the game will have a better understanding of PSU if they finish the single...

Phantasy Star Universe Game Review - Xbox 360


Regardless of what version you buy, what you end up with is an interesting package with some surprising ups and disappointing downs, none of which could have truly been expected going into this game

Not Available

Not Available

When you first boot up Phantasy Star Universe, you have two modes available: Story Mode and Online/Xbox Live. You'd think Story Mode is pretty self-explanatory, but it's not; it actually has you playing a full-length adventure as Ethan Waber, main...

Phantasy Star Universe


Three worlds, two modes, one adventure

Dungeon-crawling with friends ; The cool sci-fi theme ; Meaty action RPG gameplay

If you've played PSO, it's nothing new ; Tedious story mode ; Technical glitches, awkward problems
