It's hard to sum up how fantastic this game is. I myself grew up playing Phantasy Star One on the sega master system, and its amazing to me that nearly 20 years later I am still in love with this great title. Dont let the fact that these games are "old" push you towards something else. If you have never experienced one of the first phantasy star games, then take advantage of the oppertunity to do so right now. Phantasy Star One stands out, far out, above the other two games included simply because of the fantastic story, insanely unique and fun characters, and a great amount of different monsters for you to fight. Two and three i feel are a little bit..of a step down compared to one, but those too are great games nontheless. If you are an rpg fan of any sorts, you absolutely must rent this game. With three full chapters of rpg goodness, be thankful gamefly doesnt have late fees because you will be playing this one for a very long time. Trust me, this is even better than Final Fantasy 1 & 2 Dawn of Souls, this is better than Lunar, this is one of the best. The only rpg I would seriously hold over Phantasy Star One is Chrono Trigger. Im even bold enough to say this is better than Final Fantasy Seven. Yes people, it is really THAT good. RENT THIS GAME IMMEDIATELY!!!
