PSO2 English Installation
This provides an English program to install Phantasy Star Online 2: EPISODE 5, with a lot of updates integrated into it. It's much faster and a LOT less painful than downloading the Japanese client directly. You can grab the setup file here (Updated 8/1/2017). You will need a BitTorrent client to download it. (We recommend qBittorrent, click here to visit their homepage.) The game requires DirectX to play, you can grab the setup here, if you do not have it installed on your computer. Stop by the sign up page if you need help making an account, and download the Tweaker to apply the English patches after installation.

On lowest settings, the game isn't very demanding and still playable, so don't worry about meeting the minimum requirements. If you've bought a computer in the last few years, it should at least run the game. For a point of comparison, you can consult, this list for CPU benchmarks, and this list for video card benchmarks. If your CPU listed has a score better than 1100 (Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 is 1117) for your CPU, and 200 or better (Geforce 7800 GT is 203), then your computer should be able to at least run the game. It's not an exact science, but this method may give you a point of reference if you plan on buying hardware to play the game.
