Star Ocean review

 

If you like final fantasy style games that include crafting and obtaining rare items and such this game is a blast.

Looks beautiful and smooth game play like all its predecessors. The combat system is still awesome, real time actions not turn based

Wasnt free ;)

I really dont know who this game's target audience is but it's not straight adult males. Youve been warned.

I really dont know

This game has no appeal to an adult male. EXTREMELY asian. The girls are googly eyed and unbearably annoying. The combat system is bland. The story line is totally uninspired. I quit after the third or fourth time I was subjected to the super high...

one of my favorites

 

I beat the main story in around 50 hours. Currently I am finishing up all the side quest and the bonus dungeon, only available once the the primary game has been finished, and I have and additional 5 hours so far. I'm going to guess that it will be an...

Great story for fans of quirky anime. The story really drove me to press on, just to hear the rest of it. Gameplay is enjoyable, and the weapon synthesis system is a great add for any RPG

The battle system is fairly simplistic. It has the potential to be very deep, and if you take the time to learn it ( and chase the trophies ) it can become complex and rewarding. However, it is not necessary to do so in order to beat the game

Good potential, horrendous execution

 

I've got around 50 hours sunk in to the game and I'm very close to the end. I have to say the worst thing about the game is the cut-scenes. Imagine, you beat a boss and are "treated" to a 5-minute cut-scene. You go back to your ship and head back in to...

Battle is fun. 8 characters to choose from and there is some overlap in their abilities. The crafting system is interesting. AI does not do stupid things

Collecting materials for crafting ends up being something of a grind for rare drops, or you just plug through the story-line until you can purchase the mats from a store. Story-line is awful. AWFUL. Too many cut-scenes, and many of them are boring and...

Star Ocean Last Hope International (PS3)

 

This game is awesome and holds its own. all and all the pros heavily out way the cons. once you start playing this game its kinda hard to put it down like with any good game.

This game is great I just cant put it down. If you like games like the Final Fantasy series or Phantasy Star Universe series. You will more than likely get hooked to this game like i am. all the game is on one disc unlike the xbox 360 version that has...

There are a few things that kinda held me back from giving this game 5 eggs like the emotionless faces. The word .....kay..... gets old very quickly thanks to lymle every sentence she says ends with kay?.... The story line is a little weak at times

Better than the 360 version...at a few prices to pay.

 

Was hoping to pilot the Calnus in an Ace Combat style battle on the way to the Missing Procedure. Would've been a very nice feature. Heard there was an extra charecter added in, lies abound. Other than that, great game. Only 4 eggs because of the hit...

Game is absolutely amazing. To fit a game that was on 3 discs onto one Blu-Ray, is simply amazing. The option for anime style pictures is a much welcomed feature, since the original CG faces are a bit stupid sometimes. Especially Lymle's fat face...

The graphics have taken a SEVERE blow. I can tell just how much they've been stepped down. But it's to be expected when shoving 3 discs into one, a hit has to be taken somewhere. Not horrible to look at, but noticable to me. Also some of the Cutscenes...

Surprised there was nothing else included except for the extra language packs.

Very fun and challenging battle system ; The game looks incredibly beautiful ; Load times are very quick ; Its better than star ocean 3

Story is weak ; Characters are annoying and emotionless. They will drive you crazy and wish you never bought this game at full price like I did. Only thing you can do about them is to turn off their battle sounds and skip a lot of cinematics. A lot of...

Not one of the better Star Oceans but some nice addons for the later PS3 release

Choice of English or Japanese Voices ; Retro or CG Menus ; Uncompressed audio

Emotionless Faces ; AA is still terrible ; Story is a little weak ; Walking in environments feels sluggish
