the story mode is fantastic and the choice of charaters is huge. the online play is fun but with limited chat. the combat is kinda like dragon age with guns i seriously reccomend this to anyone who has a ds.

I enjoyed the game and story. The main problem I had was that the gameplay was almost too simple. The gameplay didn't have the same excitement as PSO 1 and 2, nor were the monsters anywhere near as exciting to face as the ones in PSO.
Still, the simple gameplay was quite fun for a while, but did get a little old by the end. The other problems was that killing most the monsters was most easily done by a simple hack, slash, and heal method that got too repetitive by the end. By the time I beat the normal mode, though, I didn't really want to keep doing it any more.
The storyline was also simple, but enjoyable. It has some interesting moments and even a few that are quite powerful. A lot of it follows many of the things one might expect from this genre, but not in a bad way.
Overall, it was a fun game and I rate it a little higher than I would purely for the awesome Phantasy Star nostalgia factor. But, truthfully, I think I'd have just as much or more fun playing through Phantasy Star episode 1 and 2 again.
