Game Play
Phantasy Star Online 2 is a MMORPG that gives a cyberpunk with monster hunter feel to the enemies.
The characters you choose will determine how your game play will be like.
The game let's you play in solo mode, and allows you to add an AI NPC in later stages of the game.
In using the AI NPC, you can use it to aid you in mini attacks and do auto heal or use items to make your quest a tad easier.
However, if you are to die during a boss fight, raid event, the AI will stop attacking and only uses the resurrection potion on you if you have any.
It will cease to attack and keep using heal until it's dead too. This weird feature is supposed to prevent the AI from completing the quest for you while you are dead.

Each main quest feels like a side quest as they are just slightly longer than those side quests, so the game feels fresh and constantly engaging you with lots of new plots and actions.

Boss fights feels great when going out in a larger group of players online.

The class system offers tons of unique characters which have some basic customizations.
There are 6 classes available, namely Hunter, Braver, Ranger, Force, Bouncer, and Summoner.
The class will define your character looks, kind of attributes, and weapon type used.
