Summary: Just a warning, I ordered this new from Amazon and the case had no UMD inside it. I was able to return it and they sent me a replacement copy that, again, was missing the UMD. I returned that asking for a refund but it's been over a month and I've yet to get a response. I ended up downloading the game off PSN and it's great so far. If you played the original PSU you will definitely enjoy it. They've added a lot of new items, mission modes, etc.
Summary: I started on this series at phantasy star portable around 2010, and after playing that game to near death(3 save files, over 1500 hours total), I wanted more after getting all that I could. lo and behold, Phantasy star portable 2 (PSP2)comes out months after I learn about it.
Get for your PSP before you can't find it anymore! Best PSP RPG.

Summary: *originially bought a PSP to play Gods Eater Burst, but then bought Phatnasy Star Portable. I liked so much, that i bought the sequel. *Mass improvements in this successor from story, gameplay, and online play (although the servers don't seem to be up anymore, but you can try services like Xlink Kai to find other players). Phantasy Star has a special place for gamers who enjoy good dungeon-crawling with rpg sci-fi elements.
Summary: If you get this game because of the opinion that, this is Sega's monster hunter portable,you'll definitely going to be regret,this consider as ARPG and nothing much similar with MHP series except than 4 player coop,nothing to complain for its graphic since it is on PSP,but unacceptable loading speed.
