    Default 1UP's Phantasy Star Zero Review

    Yeah, for a few days I was beginning to think PS0 was being severely neglected, cause there has been only 2 official reviews of the game. The main video game news/review site I follow, 1UP, finally put out their review.

    Honestly, I really don't like this guy's review. I don't feel like he fully justified the score he gave, and his negative slant on pretty much all of his reviews makes me grit my teeth (whoever lets him formally write for 1up should be reprimanded). What do you guys think? Did this review do the game justice?

    To say the least, there are people who just hate the game to start, and then theres hardcore fans like us who enjoy this game no matter what. I take pride in being one of those hardcore fans :3

    even from an unbiased standpoint, this review is trash, sounds like he only played for 10 minutes

    yeah the paid reviewer seems a total tool.

    what did he expect a damn xbox360/high end PC in a handheld cartridge based game.

    I'm still puzzled by the lack of media attention this game is getting (as far as I can see at least). Hell, I have never even seen the game at any stores in my area (bought it online, even though I pass by stores daily). I thought that the point of the game was to draw in new players to the PSO experience, but it's relying mostly on word of mouth and the Nintendo Power review.

    It stings a little that the only other review doesn't sound too positive, but B- is I guess not a very bad score. For a DS title that is able to pull off what this game does and that offers a free and enjoyable online experience, I think it deserves higher though.

    This review is accurate. If we weren't busy being butthurt (no offense but seriously), most of his points are valid within this review. The single-player campaign is trash and mind-numbing after four hours, and the online gets beaten with a cane for having no lobbies and FCs instead. It's all on target.

    It's not overly negative. It's not a particularly meaty or well done review either though. It reads like a brief overview. The user review down below it though is just a fanboy comeback though.

    I totally agree. I don't think PSZ should get a A+++ or some other ungodly score, but it deserves a lot of merit. It's one (of hopefully two) attempts to bring a series out from the pit of failure, as many people have condemned the series to be in. A feat such as that, as Zero has demonstrated, should be mentioned in a "quality" review. Welp, I'll be finishing my own review of it over the weekend, and it'll get posted right under his for good measure.
