Attention all Hunters - a new mission awaits you. To begin your assignment, you must land on Planet Ragol via an alternate spaceship known as...the Nintendo GameCube! In this latest version of Sonic Team's award-winning RPG series, you get two games in one. Episode I gives you all the hit content and gameplay from the original PSO and PSO ver.2. Episode II brings a new full-length adventure that's exclusive to the Nintendo GameCube. You'll face real-time combat with enemies that are more powerful than ever before. New levels, like the breath-taking mountain and beach stages, give you expanded areas of gameplay and deep, lush worlds to explore. You'll also be given all-new quests to complete, additional weapons to master, and lots more rare items to find. Choose your character from the original 3 classes, each with a fourth new being, or from two brand new classes. For intense offline gameplay, team up or compete with up to three of your fellow Hunters on the same console for a split-screen battle. Go forth Hunter, and bring glory to the Guild...

IGN Cube:
"Online, I can tell you, the experience is completely different and the sense of being in a whole new world shines through brilliantly. There's no question in my mind to buy this game. Sega's online RPG is a dream come true for GameCube. That's why it gets an Editor's Choice award from me."

"In the 40 hours I spent playing PSO for review, I finished every stage from both episodes on the default setting, but have really yet to scratch the surface of what the game has to offer. You'll easily squeeze 150 hours of awesome gameplay out of it. See you online."


"Sonic Team's PSO is already significant in the annals of video game history. If Episode I & II is the first chance you have to experience the series, then that fee shouldn't be quite as intimidating, because, despite the game's flaws, it's still as addictive as ever, and you'll find yourself playing for hours on end."
