Phantasy Star Gaiden

Sega Game Gear

Game Description:

This isa fun little role-playing game. It is a side-story (hence the word ‘Gaiden’) based on the very popular Phantasy Star series (The ass-kicken-est RPG series ever, I might add =]). If Phantasy Star is as Nostalgic for you as it is for me, I suggest you grab the game right now. It plays so remarkably similar to the actual PS games it is uncanny.

Translation Description:

PSTARA.IPS uses the English font that was already present in the game, and PSTARB.IPS uses a new, wider font. All of the above pictures use PSTARB.IPS, but if demand warrants I can maybe whip up some comparison screens.

There’s a major plot twist in the game that was rewritten by Magic Translations (well not rewritten, but changed around a little) because, uhh, well I don’t know why exactly. Rebecca Capowski has retranslated the scene and posted it in a text file on her website, located here: http://home.att.net/~RCgamusic/trans.htm Once I get through the game I’ll be able to figure out what exactly was changed, but for now you’ll have to take her word for it I guess. Naturally, don’t go looking for the retranslated scene thing unless you’ve already played through it or you want to be majorly spoiled. Kay?

This project was originally released by Magic-Destiny which has since merged with Stealth Translations to form Dynamic Designs. It is now offered and maintained by Dynamic Designs.

HORRIBLE!

Reviewed By: obscurumlux01 on 25 Feb 2011

The gameplay of this game is horrible and has some of the worst and most antiquated game mechanics this side of Ultima or Wizardry or any of those old hardcore dungeon crawlers. This is just…horrible game design.

Only near the end is there a connection made to a character from PS1, and a very throwaway connection at that. So sleeping changes hair AND eye color!? What’s in a name if the supposed person doesn’t look anything like how they did in PS1!?

There will be random battles at least every 5 seconds. I’m absolutely not exaggerating in this. There’s a ‘Lets Play’ on YouTube where the poor guy playing this game is literally torturing himself with agony trying to just get from point A to point B without an encounter every few seconds. He ends up doing ‘offscreen grinding’ just to keep it from becoming a 30+ part video.

If you still feel you have the patience for this, go watch the first 2 videos of his Let’s Play on YouTube. If you can sit through that utter tedium, then congrats for having a crapton of patience!

There’s a few mazes, but no space travel or other planets. Aside from planet names and some background story (as minimal as it is), this has nothing much to do with the PS series and you can safely ignore it. Otherwise just watch someone else torture themselves with it.
