  • Excerpt: Star Ocean: Till the End of Time (SO3 hereafter) is the third game in tri-Ace’s flagship series. tri-Ace is a relatively unknown developer, but with four games under their belt (Star Ocean: the Second Story, Valkyrie Profile, Star Ocean: Blue Sphere, and now SO3), they are making quite a name for themselves.

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time review (PS2)

  • Excerpt: , you don't exist in some primitive medieval world dominated by swords and sorcery. Nope, you're in a massive galaxy with all sorts of planets — many of which are quite advanced technologically. You get teased by this in the early going as protagonist Fayt (pronounced "fate") and family are chilling out in some futuristic resort. Then all hell breaks loose, Fayt gets separated from everyone and winds up in an escape pod that crashes...on a primitive medieval world.

  • Excerpt: 1969: Man lands on the moon. And then, for a long time, nothing happened. While writers in the latter half of the 20th century were fascinated by the potential of future space exploration, the progression of technology has simply not matched up to their expectations. Although many projected that space travel would be a reality by this point in time, others took a more realistic approach. One such franchise is tri-Ace's Star Ocean .

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: are going with SO3, you really need to wonder if indeed it won’t be released until somewhere around the end of time. Bringing back the Star Ocean series’ sci-fi flair, this latest installment takes place about 700 years after the battle against the Ten Wise Men, with the Space Federation exploring deeper and deeper into the cosmos. The game’s hero, Fate Linegod, starts the game taking his family and old friend Sophia to a resort colony called Hida.

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time

Game Over Online
17 March 2006
  • Excerpt: Let’s face it: American gamers often get the short end of the stick when it comes to “extras.” We don’t usually receive the special soundtracks, action figures, comic books or other tchotchkes that our Japanese brethren do, so when we get our hands on a game with extra schwag, it’s an occasion for fanfare. It’s even more noteworthy if we get a Director’s Cut with extra cutscenes, features and characters.

Star Ocean: Till The End of Time

Into Liquid Sky
12 January 2006
  • Excerpt: The Star Ocean series, while not as popular as Square-Enix's two flagship series ( Final Fantasy , Dragon Warrior ), has been a solid offering that chose to be more sci-fi than fantasy. The third installment finally made it to North America in the form of Till the End of Time which is actually the Director's Edition of the Japanese version.
  • Pros: Great combat, Huge game world, No random battles, Tons of customization
  • Cons: Story and game is poorly paced, Graphics are showing their age, Combat boils down to spamming healing spells on allies

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time – Review

GameCritics.com
18 December 2005
  • Excerpt: If I were to distill the essence of Star Ocean: Till the End of Time into a single word, it would be "vast." Like the reaches of the universe (and beyond) that it took me through, Star Ocean: Till the End of Time is simply a vast game, whether viewed in terms of playtime, sidequests, story, intricacies of battle or its centerpiece item creation system.

Expert Review

19 November 2005
  • Excerpt: The Star Ocean series has managed one iteration per console generation since the SNES era, and each time it has stood out as one of the best JRPGs in its class. The first Star Ocean, arriving late in the SNES' lifespan and thus never seeing a North American release, remains to this day as one of the most complex and engaging JRPGs ever made.
