Phantasy Star 2
by SEGA Entertainment, Inc.
You conquered the universe. Then, as an eternal warrior called back from the grave, you exterminated a horde of zombies while now and then turning into a werewolf. To cap the day's video gaming, you donned Ninja garb and then rescued a kidnapped princess.
And yet, you feel strangely unsatisfied. Action games are number one, but for a really different brand of excitement, try Phantasy Star II. This fast-moving and colorful video game has as much depth and challenge as the most advanced computer programs. Phantasy Star II is hard to beat, but easy to learn. Easy menus make it a snap to move the main character through a series of towns to collect objects and news. In shops and buildings, the player can trade for weapons and info.
Phantasy Star II is a science-fantasy epic. It blends monsters and mazes with super science, like the original Phantasy Star, but there are many more places to explore. Each town has its attractions. Paseo Town boasts an interesting collection of science buildings (clone lab, data memory and teleport service), which are very useful to novice adventurers. Zema Town is supposed to be a resort, but if this is vacationing, you'll want to stay home! Oputa Town's armorer and protective gear shops are unsurpassed and a dark mystery beckons in Arima Town! Phantasy Star II is not just a game, it's a complete world. A trip to Phantasy Star II will take you places no arcade game ever has!
TIP: Talk to everyone. That insignificant-looking townperson could have a vital piece of information!
TIP: You can't survive without the right weapon/armor/protection. Take notes on which items are required for each scenario.
TIP: Make maps and use them constantly! Phantasy Star II is a big place, and it's easy to get lost.
