Phantasy Star Universe

Phantasy Star Universe is an action role-playing video game by Sega's Sonic Team for the PC, PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360.

Its North American release was on October 24, 2006, available in all formats. The European release date was November 24.

While Phantasy Star Universe is an action role-playing game similar to the Phantasy Star Online games, it takes place in a different time period and location and has many new features. Like most of the PSO titles, PSU is playable in both a persistent online network mode and a full featured single-player story mode.

Phantasy Star Universe Plot

Phantasy Star Universe's story is continued in its expansion pack, Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of the Illuminus, picking up where Phantasy Star Universe left off. Players use their own avatars and take the role as instructors to younger GUARDIANS recruits while investigating the evil organization of "human supremacists" known as the Illuminus. Along with new missions, new weapons are introduced as well as new Photon Arts, classes, enemies, bosses, and more. The user's personal avatar is the main character. In Phantasy Star Universe, players experienced the story through the eyes of Ethan Waber. In Ambition of the Illuminus, they will complete missions using their own customized avatar, working to restore peace in the Gurhal System.

Metacritic gave the game a 68 out of 100.

Erik Brudvig of IGN gave Phantasy Star Universe a passable score of 6.4 out of 10, saying "The result is an unsatisfying and stale experience that feels like an update to an old game that has had its day rather than a new title." James Mielke of 1UP.com gave an average rating of "B+"
