Blue Burst is based on the gameplay, back story, and settings established in the Dreamcast's original online console RPG, Phantasy Star Online. Beginning a new chapter in the outer space saga, "Episode IV," the online PC game allows players to create a customized character from a choice of 12 models and three professions. These heroes then join with other adventurers to explore the strange and often dangerous planet of Ragol, gaining experience and recovering powerful equipment from fallen foes as they go. The game supports teams and allows them to compete with one another for rankings. Similar to the contemporary Guild Wars (and unlike the earlier console versions of Phantasy Star Online), Blue Burst characters and saved games are stored on the servers instead of on the user's machine; this discourages hacking and allows gamers to play from any Internet-connected PC with the specs to run the game. ~ T.J.
