Fun RPG, Battles= No fun

Marcos "proletariat", Amazon

  • Summary: I really enjoyed the story, however, I can't get past how boring the battle system is. You "control" one character (if you want to call it that) and the other characters fight based on AI. Essentially, it involves you pressing the x button over and over again until the battle is won (unless you want to cast a spell).

Boring

Anna, Amazon

  • Summary: I love Star Ocean games (except the ones for the Xbox 360. That game is just terrible). I bought this game, First Departure, and was *very* excited to play it. I've only gone a few hours into the game, and I'm already ready to trade it in to Amazon. Horribly disappointed in how utterly *boring* this game is, as well as how tedious and frustrating it is. The characters are shallow and dull. The random battles are *incredibly* annoying.

  • Summary: Pros -Good starter for casual gamers -Cool character development -Beautiful backgrounds and cities Cons -Terribly long time to get from one city to the next via walking -Almost no side quests -Very short -Random battles -Always the same kind of monster, just different color -Terrible story, could be loads better, I could think of a thousand I bought this game, a few months after finishing off the third game on the PS2.

Not as good as two

Clayton Skubis, Amazon
13 January 2009
  • Summary: I really like the second one... this one is wawy to easy. You level up after like every fight and you get like 1000 bucks also so you always can buy anything. There is also next to no stroy and the little that there is, is horrable. Good grahics and good cutsceens though.
