View Full Version : SMS Phantasy Star
Tell me about this game? Its going to take two weeks for it to get here, and I want to hear some opinions =)
I ordered it, and I enjoy reading reviews and opinions before I play a game, but I haven't found much on this one.

You haven't found much on this one?!? Phantasy Star, the touchstone of all early console RPGs?

COME ON! Wow, go ANYWHERE, type into a search engine, just hints its name at any forum about gaming (except square geeks... they will not lower there guns and admit there is such things as none Square RPGs out there).
This is one LONG, deep, amazing, graphically beautiful (for its date), engrossing, unholy shit storm of fantastic RPGing that defines the freakin' genre of Jap Classic Role-Playing (different from D+D style... this is the what everyone calls FF style RPG).
The game may seem dated if you were introduced to RPGs with the likes of FF7 or Dragon Warrior 6 or some random number up there. But if you have a nice footing in the genre from childhood, back when we suffered such poorly written RPGs as the first DragonWarrior you will be amazed with this. Final Fantasy 1 and 2 can barely stand up to this game.

Be amazed by the 3D scrolling dungeons..! You'll understand once the game arrives.
Get ready for one of the best RPGs ever made. Here's (http://rpg-home.lunar-net.com/psi-web/index.html) a good place for info. The Phantasy Star Pages (http://www.phantasy-star.net) is a great place to check out too.

Perfect RPG. Maxes out most of the Master System's capabilities. Also holds the achievement of being the rarest title available for the Mega Drive.
What more encouragement do you need? =D

Excellent game. At the time, I lived in Mexico and did not know any English, I had to get a dictionary to beat the game.
And just like Elusive says, its a Perfect RPG.

Anyone have an estimate of the going rate for a complete copy of Phantasy Star these days?

I'd guess around $40.
