Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II 

 

We have been really enjoying Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II on the Xbox. This is an online video game that is inclusive by including a completely offline game mode. Families can take up to four members of the family and enjoy Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II locally and completely offline. Sega shut down the servers many years ago so offline is the only way Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II can be played. I wish more online games had the total game available in the offline mode.

That does not mean I have no criticism for Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II. In fact Sega made a monster blunder with Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II. There is no way to save the offline game play in Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II. You can save your character, but not your progress. We have beaten that dragon in the Forest area of Episode 1 so many times we are sick of beating him. How could Sega fall flat on their face with that one? Were they trying to force families into the paid online game mode?

Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II contains violence, lack of attire, enticement to lust, blood, death, resurrection, magic, false gods, and more. We love cooperating and communicating together locally with Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II. We share the loot, and look out for one another. This to me is the coolest part about Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II. If only the saves had been done properly offline.

There are a variety of characters to play with in Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II. You can be ranged, a tank, or somewhere in between. Give those mags items to help them level up. Otherwise Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II is nearly unplayable due to slow grinding. I got bored going into the same rooms, and defeating the same enemies over and over again in Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II.

The camera is a real pain on some of the boss levels with the multiplayer offline modes. Why can't we see the ground when the dragon is flying? Makes it hard to revive a dead party member. I am surprised Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II had these glitches in it too. From graphical to invisible walls blocking shots. Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II certainly earns its thirteen and older rating.

I wish more online games would include offline game modes like Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II did. I also wish we could talk to NPCs in the offline multiplayer mode of Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II. It would have been great to progress the story while playing Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II in the local multiplayer. All in all we had fun playing Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II on the Xbox.
