Excerpt: Soon after Enix released Star Ocean: Till the End of Time in Japan to criticism that it was buggy, they merged with Square, a company that had only recently begun its nasty habit of releasing so-called "international" Director's Cut versions of its games, such as Final Fantasy X and its direct sequel.
Summary: Another entry in the Star Ocean series has finally arrived, and luckily, it is a long and worthwhile journey that will keep you entertained for well over 100 hours. If you like Japanese RPGs and Star Trek, you will love this game. You are Fayt Leingod, whisked away into space after being attack by aliens while on vacation. It turns out that they are after you, and are willing to do anything to have you in their custody.
Summary: This game from the company square enix is, this title is not the first and has other predesesors, the story is well done and the grafix of the game is rather detailed, but dull when it come to the human figers, the game play is rather long but keeps the player involved for the whole journey with twist and turns along they way, the detail of the game itself is huge, with a dictornary given to you to learn the words and meanings in the games, the details go as far as laws...
Summary: Everything you can expect from Square Enix is in the game: Great graphics, wonderful storyline, great battle system, and the creative part of being an inventor. The graphics just shine in the game, from going into outerspace or staying on a planet. The story is great, it can keep you interested for hours on in, the only problem is that characters can become too chatty.
Summary: This game is so close to being perfect it actually deserves a 4.85, if only they would have fixed the lip-synching the graphics would be unmatched. For battles only the magic system needs a tune-up with some hotkeys. Also the out of battle controls could be a bit more fine- tuned. other than those easy to ignore faults Star Ocean: Till The End of Time is worth every penny.
Star Ocean: Fayt Leingod's travels across the stars!

Excerpt: "...the third installment in the Star ocean series although I don't think you need to play the first two to understand what's happening. The hero of the game is Fayt Leingod, a young college student who is on vacation with his parents and childhood friend Sophia. The twist? This is a thousand years into the future and their vacation is on a different planet. A battleship attacks the planet and everyone is evacuated, Fayt's escape pod crashes on an underdeveloped ...
Summary: I have to say that as a big FF fan I was a little wary of this game, however I am glad I decided to try it. It is an incredibly fun game to play with a really good story behind it. I love how it has managed to combine sci fi with the traditional fantasy elements of people driving around by horse and carriage, fighting with a sword and of course, dragons (what's fantasy without dragons right? :-P ) I do have one slight criticism.
Summary: Star ocean...always trying to be as good as Final Fantasy. They tried and they definetely beat FF12. But this is NOT a final fantasy experience. What you may notice is that the battle system isn't random. Now this non-random thing is pretty debatable because think of it this way: when it's random every now and then you would have to engage in battle no questions asked.
Summary: As a huge Final Fantasy fan, I thought I'd give this game a try, and it didn't disappoint. Sure, this isn't the best RPG in existence, but it's still a lot of fun and definitely worth your money. I found the characters in the game endearing and interesting, and the voice acting is very good, which is a relief seeing as that can often be a weak point in games. The soundtrack in general is pretty solid, with plenty of catchy tunes to be heard along the way.
Summary: i have played this game for quite a while, and i understand some of the complaints below - some puzzles are ridiculously hard, some random encounters are harder than the bosses at the end of the section (go figure?) and i think magic and items are not very well expanded on like in other games. the storyline is very sci-fi, so if youre not interested youl probably hold reserve against the game. i wont explain - people below already have.
