AV Club: Phantasy Star Zero Review

Game developers take a few shortcuts here and there. That isn't necessarily bad; so long as players aren't made aware, they'll ignore the occasional repeat background or suspiciously recolored enemy. But Phantasy Star 0, ostensibly a story-based RPG, recycles almost everything, from quests down to character types, and couples those repetitive elements with one of the most complex gameplay explanations known to man. So not only is it difficult to get going, the reward is a little enjoyable slashing, a lot of head-scratching, and an overwhelming feeling of déjà vu.

The story is too old to be commented.
