Showing 1-10 of 34
Beautiful nonsense, with a lot of shouting

Summary: I haven't finished this game yet. My thoughts thus far: -Beautiful, colorful landscapes -Interesting battle system, but it can be difficult to control targeting -Even the Japanese voices are annoying with the female characters. There's altogether too much shouting, male and female characters alike.
Summary: I'm an RPG fan through and through I'm also into science fiction as well so when I heard of Star Ocean I just had to try it out. My first Ocean game was "till the end of time" on the PS2 and that was one of greatest adventures I've ever taken.
Summary: A really fun game with lots of depth and the ability to pull hours and hours of entertainment from. However it has a huge flaw in it that had me debating many times as I played it if it was worth the trouble to find all the good stuff. The flaw?
Summary: In the star ocean series one thing always got me until I was able to see the ending credits, and unfortunately that's not the story. The general plot-line in the star ocean is the space and the travels to various planets and even though this concept is very old and overused the interest of space...
Summary: ...I'm forced to average the two. I commiserate with another reviewer about the "This was on the X-Box, so it's worse here by definition!" reviews, but I can't co-sign on grade inflation. And honestly, while this game has a lot going for it, its flaws can be severe.
Difficult to recommend without making some reservations

Summary: I like grinding dungeon crawlers and if you like that kind of game, Star Ocean is an 8 out of 10 game. There are some annoyances worth mentioning: 1. the characters look good enough but it is all in the typical anime fashion -- big eyed girls wearing tiny skirts.
Summary: Star Ocean: The Last Hope International is a great game. The combat is good, the progression is good, the storyline is ok. Unfortunately though the game is let down by an archaic and very poorly implemented save system.
Summary: the characters were simply annoying. I finished the game but did not bother to do any extra's I just couldn't get into it. The battle sysytem is alright, the graphics and music too, it just wasn't to my taste.
