Summary: There are may things i would have liked to see differently to make this game better, like voices, saving times are soooo far apart plan to play for at least 2 hours at a time or more if you do the side missions but overall still a decent game, but the last one was they made for PS2 was still sooo much better in comparison.
Summary: for all the hours of voice work people put into this game they certainly didnt give the actors much of a storyline to work with. Ive been a fan of this franchise since "the second story" and while i will always have a place in my heart for the series i cant say that this one really did anything wonderful with the plot. Trying to work the camera in this game to avoid being ambushed or more around using the map as a guide is.. its MADDENING.
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. So fast forward to about a month ago when I got the game and all those familiar feelings of wonder and excitement came whisking back!
Summary: This game is absolutely horrible for a star ocean fan or someone that has played any quality games. They made the game ridiciously hard and it is way off balanced. The characters and story are not the greatest.
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? It has one of the worst camera systems in any game that stresses penalties and bonuses for how you encounter enemies.
Summary: I went into this game with high expectations from what I had read from other reviewers. I had fun playing it, however there were some huge flaws in my opinion. First, at least 25% of the game is scenes where you are simply watching. There are at least 2 or 3 that are probably close to 20 minutes long. I want to play a game, not watch TV, thanks. Second, the quest are grind heavy. I don't want to have to fight 40 battles to get 1 of the 10 items I need.
Summary: First of all, I have to say the I'm a HUGE fan of Star Ocean: Til The End Of Time. It wasn't a perfect game, but I loved almost all the characters, the worlds you visit, and, for the most part, I enjoyed the story (even though it was slow at parts). Sadly, I can't say the same for this game. Story: I can't tell you how many times I wanted to just fall asleep because most of the storyline is so boring.
Summary: Start Ocean the Last Hope follows the trend of current Japanese RPGs, hence storytelling, theme, anime characters that become easily annoying, instead of amusing, and archaic gameplay concepts and graphics that make the player wonder, if this is not another PS2 title. Let's break it down; the presentation of the game is good, but doesn't offer anything we haven't seen before.
Summary: With the severe lack of JRPGs this gen average games like this are getting more praise than they should. It's nothing we haven't seen before, and feels like there just wasn't that much changed from the last game. The battle system is fun, and offers a good amount of challenge towards the end of the game, and through the post game dungeons. The story is boring and very predictable, and the dialogue is full of those cringe worthy moments.
