Phantasy Star Portable w/ PSO Elements

First off, I want to say that this Phantasy Star has a great story that follows right after PSP1. I don't want to mention much since there would be spoilers.

In terms of gameplay there are several elements kept from the regular PSP1. The changes made include the PSO feel. You're just in 1 town and don't have to worry about hopping to different planets to take on missions; instead you can take all your missions from Iron Clad 6 (Your Ship); just like PSO.
Another change that was made that I wasn't too happy about, but brings good old PSO memories is the Disk Lvl system. They fused the idea of being able to reuse a Photon Art + the Disk Level all together. This means you CANNOT progress your Photon Arts through using them over and over; but instead you're stuck finding disks of different levels.
I won't say when, but there are stages that relate to Forest & Cave stages from PSO.
A great thing they brought back from PSO is the "1, 2, 3" timed hits. Hitting the button at the right time will engage critical damage , whereas if you're just mashing the button; it will only do default/regular damage.
Online play has given this game a great edge on the market, and again; similar to PSO.

This is a great game I downloaded directly to my PSPGo and have enjoyed it for a great amount of time. I recommend anyone to try it at the least if you're a MMORPG player or enjoyed PSO.

This is such an awesome game. It's very epic; and easily the best out of the Phantasy Star series!
I can't think of anything wrong with this game; it's an epic RPG that will keep you hooked for a long time! And it's got a lot of little thing added to it, that make it very cool and worthwhile!
I will certainly keep it awhile. ;) You should to; if you're looking for a fantastic RPG that's totally worth the time...

This game is exactly what you want if you enjoyed the original PSO games. Not much has changed but thats a good thing. The small changes are a welcome addition. I will be playing this for a long time to come.
