That aside, this game is surprisingly well put-together, for an 8-bit game. The first-person dungeons are well animated, in my opinion, better animated than some of the late SNES first-person ungeon crawlers (hello, MegaTen, even though I love you to death, your dungeons were very static).
The story is well-written, which is kind of sad, in a way. Sega did such an awesome job with this Phantasy Star's story. It makes you wonder where these writers went when it came time for the sequels. PS II & III's stories weren't ba, but neither of them got me as interested as the first game's did. Only when IV came out did I get interested in the game's characters again. Too bad they can't create a better narrative for the PSO games.
If you love old-school RPG goodness, play this game. If you want a lesser challenge, go play Final Fantasy. Before all you fanboys attack me, I'm a big fan of the Fantasy games...they're just too easy. Money & EXP in a FF game comes way too easily. In PS, you have to WORK for your EXP and Meseta. I love that, which is why I'm a fan of the "traditional" RPGs like Dragon Quest & Phantasy Star.
