So, did I prefer Final Fantasy XII over Final Fantasy X?

Phantasy Star 2, part 1

I'm having a go at Phantasy Star 2, an RPG from the days of the Sega Mega Drive, now available to play on the Playstation 2 as part of a retro game collection that can be obtained for not very much money. Should keep me busy until Rogue Galaxy comes out, anyway.

Phantasy Star 2 dungeons are infamous for their complexity. The original English-language release came with a full set of paper maps to help the player. I've found a set of them on a web site; I don't think I'd be able to play the game without them! In a modern RPG, dungeons of this complexity wouldn't be a problem because there'd be an in-game map; the RPGs of 1989 didn't have such luxuries!

The story so far. Spoilers!Collapse )
