Excerpt: After some serious delays, Max Five's strategy RPG has finally come out for the Playstation. During development of the game, many people were drawing comparisons between Hoshigami and Final Fantasy Tactics . While the visual layout of the overworld map and the combat grid are extremely similar, that is where most of the similarities come to an end.
Pros: Actually requires strategy to win, RAP system is fresh addition to combat
Cons: High level of difficulty, Average graphics, Story takes a while to get rolling
Excerpt: Atlus of America placed a lot of faith in Max Five, securing the rights to Hoshigami: Ruining Blue Earth before the title was even completed. On the surface, this faith seemed to be well founded. Max Five is the company formed by the development group that worked on the watershed Playstation Strategy RPGs, Tactics Ogre and Final Fantasy Tactics. What Atlus ended up with was a title long on promise and short on balance and execution.
