I'm not such a great fan of this , prefering final fantasy instead and maybe because i only have 1,2 and 3 (i think) only completed 3 as the first 2 were way too slow for my liking but the 3rd was good (assuming its the one with chaz? as the main hero).

Phantasy Star 2 was the one with Chaz. At the begining you are accompined by Nei (one of my all time favorite Phantasy Star Characters... WHY'D SHE HAVE TO... um, won't spoil).

3 was seen as a let down, no prfound Darkness, No Dark Falz/Force.
The random encounter rate was too high for it to be sane.

But its best point was story.

4, is seen as one of the best of all time.
and the two game gear games never got out of japan one of them lets Aaisa join you, Alisa being Alis from PS1 (stupid four character limit in the names).

Phantasy Star set new rules in RPG's when it was made. No game before it had a Female character in the lead role... and not as a sex or high romantic icon. Thats the most noticeible one... but nowaday's people overlook that fact because their used to it.

Phantasy Star is the world only TRUE contender with Final Fantasy. And with a New Phantasy Star game being made... FULL 3D, NOT a PS Online. It's defintly gonna be giving FF a real run for it money for the first time in years.

Ive really enjoyed all the Phantasy Star games, especially 4, dang I cant get enough of that one. The third was a big let down for me, yet I played throught it, and there was some enjoyable times. I actually thought that the third one was older than the second, I just thought that the graphics and gameplay looked ALOT older than that of 2.

Infact I belive 3 wasn't the official 3. It was not made by the original creator, so 4 (End of the Millineum) was really 3. But they didn't want to confuse people so they called it EoM. But you can put 3 into timeline with 4, and 4 dose seem to reconise 3 at some points (like when you visit the crashed ship early in the game).

If someone could confirm that it would be great.
