The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

What do these ratings mean?

When Phantasy Star came out for the Dreamcast a few years ago, I remember watching my grades drop as I attempted to immerse myself in the game.  Phantasy Star was the WoW before WoW came out.

But this game just is dissapointing... really.  I was excited for the sequel for Phantasy Star Online, and I wanted this to rival WoW so badly... you know, America vs Japan, PC vs console, medieval vs futuristic.  First, let me tell you that the single player mode is REALLY BAD.  The game is so reptative, but I would have let that go... except for multiplayer mode.

They did do some stuff right, allowing you to strafe and the interface is a lot more streamlined and helpful.  But that's about it.  First of all, I hate the $10 a month and $50ish up front.  (WoW is $20 up front and $13 a month... and no, I don't play WoW.)

What I was dissapointed this time with the game was the fact that there are so few people in the Gutral Star System...maybe they're all in Azeroth on holdiay?  The game is repetative and the quests unimaginative, and this game just was... boring!  Yes, boring!  I loved the dystopyian Phantasy Star II (one of my favorite games ever!), Phantasy Star IV and Online... but this is sad.  The AI has the classic, sad, stupid, grunt level of intelligence that would lose to an Orc (Zug-Zug!) in a game of Jeporady!.  It's too small, and no one is there... or too few.

This game is addictive for all of you people who don't play WoW alot.  Still, I would recommend Azeroth over Gutral.  That's just me... this pains me to give this score.  Oh, well.  Zug-Zug.
