Is Phantasy Star Zero (Zero) a worthy portable edition of the classic online game? Almost. The same core gameplay remains intact with you grinding it out for hours and hours. You'll have your hunter trying to get to that next level before you call it quits for the night. You'll find yourself picking over items looking for the next piece of rare loot. While Zero keeps some elements untouched (in a good way) other pieces of the game fall a little short of letting Zero completely shine."
