"There will never be another Phantasy Star Online.
The preceding is a self-proclaimed statement I've refused to accept until undertaking review duties for Sega's latest Phantasy Star outing on the Sony PSP. Believe me, a week long internal battle was carried out that delayed this review. And you know, we all scream for updated versions of Goldeneye 64, Final Fantasy VII, and other unforgettable classics from our gaming past. But here's the thing - a truth that is impossibly difficult to embrace - reality never lives up to nostalgia.
As someone who strives to be an objective but not yawn-inducing video game enthusiast, I knew some palate-cleansing had to occur before I put critical words to screen, and for my fellow Phantasy Star junkies in the audience: you're best served heeding the same advice before you venture back into Gurhal, portable style."
