      Famitsu love their Phantasy star games. All i care about is the fact that PS0 won't suck hard. like Sonic Team's other endevors, and according to Famitsu it dosen't. what a relief. i wonder what they mean by "softness": low volume, or lame and boring sound.

      Believe the term Softness used for music is often identified as to "Quiet" or Light hearted (cheery music)... meaning in more easily understood... your probably going into the options menu and tweaking the settings.
      This is good news to be hearing... considering I'm picking up a DS or a PSP soon.

      Well so far so good, 33/40 is actually a pretty good score. Shame I no longer put much faith in Famitsu's review scores. And as others have pointed, technically PSU got a higher score than Phantasy Star Zero. Still, I read the translated review and it seems to be very thorough, I liked alot of what I heard. I really want this game to be awesome but I'm afraid to keep my expectations too high. Untill I play it for myself I'm just going to have to ignore all the hype.
