Excerpt: Instaurée par Tri-Ace sur Super Famicom, la série Star Ocean s'est rapidement présentée comme un RPG novateur en son genre. En effet, le projet avait le mérite de proposer une grande aventure basée sur l'exploration au travers des époques et des planètes, tout en offrant un système de combat très dynamique à une époque où le tour par tour était presque toujours de mise.
Excerpt: From a presentation standpoint, Star Ocean: The Last Hope International is a mixed bag. Let's start with the good. The game is technically sound; you won't see any screen-tearing or framerate issues. The interior of the Calnus has a great space-opera vibe to it, though it doesn't even come close to Mass Effect 2 's Normandy SR-2. The environments look nice, but they are often quite empty.
Summary: I really enjoyed my play-through of this game. In fact, it’s all I could think about as I sat at work each day, just waiting to get back to see how the story was going to unfold. But with the long cut scenes and few and far between save spots, you really need to dedicate about 2 hours each time you want to play this game.
Excerpt: Last summer, when I probably should have been frolicking on a beach somewhere or throwing a Frisbee around with scantily clad women, I was instead holed up in my room with my Xbox 360 and a copy of Star Ocean: The Last Hope. And in no way did I find that depressing. To date, I've invested a total of 132 hours and 59 minutes into the game (yes, really), and so hopefully I'm deemed qualified to offer an opinion on the game.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is The JRPG genre has been an unexplored territory for me for many years now. Even with all the good titles and the positive reviews they seem to be getting over the past years, the idea of a bunch teens saving the world has never appealed to me. So when I got the chance to review Star Ocean: The Last Hope International, I had a couple of doubts in my mind: one, is it going to be fair to the game for me to play and review it?

25 March 2010
Excerpt: After a painfully long wait for many, the PS3’s version of Star Ocean: The Last Hope is finally here with Star Ocean: The Last Hope International. The new edition of the game boasts Japanese voice tracks and anime menus that were cut out of the English version. Even with the late port and high price, this action RPG is worth a look. In the year 2064 the Earth almost destroys itself in a massive nuclear world war, forcing humans to begin searching for a new home in space.
Excerpt: Stop me if you have heard this one before: It is the future, shortly after the big WW3. Everything is destroyed except the White House. Since Earth can no longer sustain life, the surviving humans have teamed up to find another suitable planet. They are mankind’s last hope! All eyes are upon these heroic pioneers, risking their lives for our salvation! Can they find the answers to our survival in the infinite expanse of the great Star Ocean?
Excerpt: launched for the Xbox 360, another in a string of exclusive RPGs that PlayStation 3 owners didn’t receive. Most of these titles did eventually make their way to Sony’s machine but we typically have to wait a while, and Tri-Ace’s effort is no exception.
