For a long while, finding a decent adventure game was an adventure within itself. With Halo becoming the world’s most popular game, the demand for titles in which the players is tasked with investigating an area with a fine toothed comb while slogging through a books worth of text had simply diminished. You would have been hard pressed to find a customer for a game where the action could only be found in words. The release of Capcom’s first US entry into the Phoenix Wright series was the first step in changing all of that. Phoenix Wright is an Ace Attorney, it says so in the title of his game, and he’s on a crusade for justice.

Phantasy Star Online is and always will have a special place in my heart. I am not sure how long I played Phantasy Star on the Gamecube, all I know is that I loved every second of it and spent many hours spent killing monsters and gathering loot.
I longed for a sequel to the game that reinvigorated my love for RPGs. Unfortunately a sequel did release, but in the form of Phantasy Star Universe. While Universe was not a bad game and did improve upon the lackluster campaign and story of Online, it did not seem to recapture the magic that permeated throughout Online. So I have waited patiently for the game that could give me that Phantasy Star Online feel.

It follows Ethan Kairos, a 17 year old student who comes across a device called the Hollow Pen, which allows him to open holes in time and manipulate the events on the other side.
