Example: You're stranded in the middle of the desert and most of your party is dead, and you have a Force Claw handy. You can use it to revive your members free of charge and TP!! I have a mostly complete list of usable items, if anyone cares to see it.

I'd like to see that list. :O

I'm currently replaying Phantasy Star I and also playing Phantasy Star IV for the first time. When I'm done with IV, I'll move on to III. I have played a little bit of III already (on GBA), and I have to admit that I wasn't blown away at first. I'd like to give it a honest chance, and hopefully I'll enjoy it as much as some of you have.

At the rate I'm going, I don't think I'll get to III until mid- or late April. When I do get the chance to play it (and finish it), I'll post my thoughts on it in this thread.

That's the right attitude: Not to just ignore the whole game and say it sucks only by one hour of play. :)

Nope. It was a reference to all those, sadly many, people who give their judgement before they even have much of experience of the thing they judge.

PSIII wasn't bad, it was just kinda odd. I played it first 'cause I liked the medieval feeling it has. I didn't understand the battle system at all. There was too much walking during the game and the characters move so SLOW. Music was pretty good though not even close to PSIV. Storyline was partially great but it sure had some f*cked up scenes too, like "Lyle is a dragon, Lyle dies" -part.

But the game didn't leave bad taste, it had its moments.

The battle system is almost the same as in PSII, but a bit more advanced. Only thing I noticed which wasn't very well planned was when choosing a target - where ever you might point the d-pad, the selection always just jumps forward one target. So no moving to left when choosing a target.

It's basically same as in PSII, but there's long-distance weapons and maxium of four groups of enemies.


Yeah the speed of PSII bored me too. And i'm complaining about the symboly on the battle system - also i didnt know about long distance weapons ^^


The speed of PS3 really irritated me, but not so much with PS2... I don't know, maybe it's just me, but PS2 was simply more interesting.

The walking speed was the same in both games. It's just that in PSIII there's longer distances. One of the reasons for this is that the devs hadn't time to add more places. :|

Longer distances mean more battles which means more EXP and more gold which means higher levels and better gear.
I'm weird.

Yes, we know...

But still... perhaps it's simply my taste for games, but the grind in PS2 was easier (meaning: it didn't make me feel like someone was squeezing on my brain) than in PS3.

I've always said PS3 had a lot of problems... And I mean a LOT of problems... A lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot... but I never said I didn't like the game.


Yes... I watch too many cartoons. It's a problem when you have younger brothers and sisters.
