Sega Ages from start to now

ps2gen.jpgIn Japan Sega has been remaking some of their older games into 3D and polishing/repackaging their Saturn games on the PS2 as part of the Sega Ages collection. There are some absolutely brilliant games released in the series such as Vol. 29: Monster World Complete Collection, Vol. 25: Gunstar Heroes Treasure Box and my favorite Vol. 18: Dragon Force. Over at Hardcore Gaming 101, Kurt Kalata compiled a lengthy article featuring all of the Playstation 2 Sega Ages series to date. It’s a rare look at stuff we’re never going to see like Phantasy Star Generation 2, a remake of Phantasy Star II. Let’s see what Kurt has to say about it…


Worth it? – Hell yes. It still might be too brutally difficult for most novice RPGers, but the graphical facelift, quicker walking speed and slightly faster battles definitely makes this superior to the original. The quest is mostly the same as the original, so the language barrier shouldn't be a problem if you use a guide.


I agree about the difficulty of Phantasy Star II, it’s probably too tough for people who are used to playing RPGs just for their story. However, if you’re a hardcore RPG fan go get it and prove your level grinding skills!

    Wow guys, between here and Kotaku, you are really putting HG101 on the map. Good thing we’re expanding because we’re sure to get many new users because of the recent plugs. Thanks for the support Siliconera!

  • No problem! Always glad to support Hardcore Gaming 101, the unofficial encyclopedia of gaming on the internet.

    what an amazing article… HG101 = wikipedia for hardcore gamers. That Ys article is simply the best out there!!!

    I’m glad he didn’t trash Alien Syndrome… that game is a lot of fun for 2 players.

    think one day he’ll go through the entire Simple 2000 series?

    Actually, Kurt has expressed some interest in doing a Simple 2000 article. He actually went to Japan this summer and picked up all of the Sega Ages games to do this article. Maybe next year, if he goes, he can pick up all of the Simple 2000 games. Heck, I may even do it because I want to go to Japan next year. Who knows?
