Phantasy Star Universe, in the end, is just more of the same thing: simple dungeon crawling. It's fun online; it's not fun offline. This is a hard one to rate, as it's pretty convoluted. It ultimately depends on what type of experience you're looking for when you load it up. If you're looking for an adventure you can enjoy with friends online, then this will definitely do the trick. If you want a single-player epic, though, we can't find any justification to travel to this universe.
