Phantasy Star Portable 2 review: Grind. Loot. Rinse. Repeat.

Phantasy Star Portable 2[originally posted at Total PlayStation]

Phantasy Star Online was one of the first games I played online. My buddy and I dialed our Dreamcasts onto the Internet using his family’s two phone lines to play together in the same house, and I was instantly hooked. Several spinoffs, sequels and systems later, Phantasy Star Portable 2 brings a very familiar experience to Sony’s PlayStation Portable, along with some updates that hope to freshen up the franchise.
