Last I checked it wasn't made by capcom but by sega. the game itself isn't bad, personally since it moved to 3d I prefered Phantasy star online for it's online play. Though the increase in character customization is very nice. Playing PSU online just felt too random to be really fun. though it's single player campaign was very nice, the characters felt fleshed out which had never really been the case in previous PS games. Though I got attached to the wrong character in the story mode. I really liked Karen, but she had to leave the party, and ethan is such a GOOBER! If you're interested in the storyline for PSU look into Phantasy Star Portable on the psp. it fits in between PSU and the Illuminus expansion story-wise though it's not 100% connected.

Okay I actually have this game that I bought for $15 and after taking I'd say a month to beat it, I really wish the game was longer and more options offline play than online play. PSU is alright but it could've been better, but it's a good game and worth getting. Part 2 I've seen but never played (and probably won't) is alright I suppose, I only wish that the online option didn't have so much power in that game compared to the first game in which became an option right AFTER you beat it.

After playing Phantasy Star Online on gamecube, I was dissapointed with it. I couldn't get into it and just found it a waster of money. I found the single player ok but thats about it.

Agreed. Phantasy Star only proved many facts..

1. After 4 sequels and a few remakes, it loses its nostalgic factor after it tries going 'Online'
2. Universe had a nice premise going, had it gone two-player..it might've been slightly better
3. Universe didn't need anything after that

(Add if you got anything more folks)

I used to play PSU. I noticed that Sega just did not put in the resources into fixing the game right though they did minor things. Since Sega closed up the PC side to me it is clear they are now in maintence mode to milk the game as far as they can.

I would not recommend it to people knowing what I know about it.

It could have been great IMO but I think Sega wrapped up that chance long ago in favor of other things.
