Would Phantasy Star III...

Even be worth a fuck, if the Technique buying was removed, as well as "Rowed Attacks" (Slicer, and spells), "Group Attacks" (The needler, and spells), and "Back Row Attacks (Bow, and single targeting spells)"

Honestly, that kind of ruins a lot of the unique elements of PS3... But if everything else was fixed... Would it be worth it?

I understand "static" techs on cyborgs but for human (numan/whatever) I personally don't.
But different styles of attacks (front/back/group/so on) are bonus, IMO. It increases battle strategy level, and I like it.

Before we talk about technical stuff, the first two things that need fixing in III are:

1) The horrible, HORRIBLE battle music. The only saving grace is Falz' theme, and even that is just a 6 second melody looped. Everyone here could probably make catchier tunes with a keyboard while taking a poop.

2) Overall presentation. The colors are muddy, the character sprites are blurry/smudged looking, and the rest of it is just ugly. And not seeing your character in battle is a flat-out no-no in my book.. PSI had an excuse, but then PSII came and kicked it up a notch big time. Colors were pretty, sprites were cute and looked updated from I, enemies were fully animated and neat looking... II was great. Then III came and ruined it all. If you took someone who has never played nor heard of a Phantasy Star game, and then let them play II and III (without seeing the title screen), and then asked them which they thought was the sequel/later release; they'd most likely pick II.

/end PSIII-hate rant

I think graphics are good, but animations aren't.
And what comes to music, I like them (excluding battle musics).
