Play Phantasy Star Online 2 and experience revolutionary combat in an action-driven, free-to-play multiplayer online RPG from SEGA. Take a journey into an immersive sci-fi fantasy narrative and explore mysterious worlds to unravel their secrets. Join fellow adventurers and fight against the legions of darkness to banish them from the galaxy.

 

Score explanation: Less than 2000: Please adjust your game settings because the processing load is quite heavy.

2000 through 5000: The game runs fine at the setting, if you have room, you can adjust some settings.

5001+: The game works wonderfully at this setting.

PSO2 numbers are strong, being well above the 5,000+ point recommendation that SEGA says we want. We're actually ahead of the R9 290X 4GB here when it's running in Quiet mode, but you can see it is behind when it's running in Uber mode.

 

Against both the top NVIDIA offerings, you can see it is a bit behind, but ultimately we've just got very strong performance here with our in-game settings maxed out.
