Shadowprophet commented on Phantasy Star II:

I remember the first time i got ps2, it was in the heat of the 16 bit console wars. i had decided to trade my snes to a genesis. and i got phantasy star 2 and sevral other games. over all in my entire genesis experience the phantasy star series left the deepest impression on me. A story to an rpg that wasn't crucified for the sake of translation for an american audience?

More ever an rpg brought to the states that wasnt dumbed down assuming that americans where too stupid to play an rpg, (like certain ff games where at the time.- I personaly find such tactics insulting from the japanese market) I have nothing but love for the phantasy star series. it was the first rpg I had ever played that didnt rely on corny catch phrases (example- final fantasy 6, what does; she is loaded for bear mean? till this day I still dont know o.0) and drippingly cute environments to hide a rough story translation.
this game has a beautiful story. and I say this with all honesty,. I will remember this game fondly till my dieing day.

To all the ney sayers about phantasy star 2,
Phantasy star in the old 16 bit days was the only true competition final fantasy ever had. I have to be fair. this game looks dated by todays standards and in honesty will feel dated when played with its static matrix like wire frame image background that is used for most battles through out the game. however, it's a truly great rpg with a stunning story, I dont recommend to noobs of the series. "but only because they arent worthy" No the real joy of phantasy star belongs to the vets of the series that played and enjoyed these in the genesis days.. Those people will find this game to be a treasure, However. I would recommend phantasy star 4 to one and all when and if it hits the vc. its a much more graphically beautiful game for those of you that would need that kind of
crutch to lean on..
As for phantasy star 2 being the worst phantasy star game. All I can say to that is, well.. I cant really say anything but that person apparently never played phantasy star 3, a true travesty that game was :(

But thats okay, phantasy 4, made up for the bomb ps3 droped.

No one took the time to notice that this snes classic controller has no analog sticks? its pretty, sure... but it lacks features. This is only good for half the games the original classic would play.

Shadowprophet commented on Castlevania II: Simon's Quest:

Bummer three stars, Im such a castlevania fan, Three stars seem almost unfair. But in reality considering the graphics and game play of this one. By todays Views, This game probibly doesnt even deserve that. Its sad really,, I'll still pick this up. Its not a timeless classic as you can see. But its a classic never the less.
