Summary: good transaction but the game itself wasn't what I was expecting. The game gets 3 stars from me... It was just very... lame... I bought it cause I thought it was an action-rpg but instead its like a mix of both turn based RPGs and action RPGs... plus random encounters suck alot...
Summary: I think it was science-fiction author J. G. Ballard who wrote that the ocean signified memory, while space symbolises the unconscious. As poetic and thoughtful as this may be, could this combination of these two realms inspire an interesting game?
Summary: I would have to say this game is, sadly, a bit disappointing. Really, it's only because of one simple thing: it is simply not challenging. After logging in around 20 hours in to this game, I have yet to encounter more than 2 challenging fights.
Summary: This game sounded great on paper but the story is weak, the characters aren't very well developed and (though it should theoretically have a good replay value) I was more than happy to trade it in after the first play through.
Star Ocean First Departure: The First Star Ocean Game
1 June 2010
Excerpt: Star Ocean: First Departure is a remake of the SNES game Star Ocean and was released for the PSP in 2008. This was the first time that the first Star Ocean game had been officially released in Europe. The remake uses the engine from the sequel, Star Ocean The Second Story for the most part.
Good game definatly play it if you are into Star Ocean, if not shame on you! get into it now :)

Excerpt: I suggest this game for review and could not believe it was not already here! I am a huge fan of the Star Ocean games even though I did not play them until a few years ago. I first played the ps2 star ocean: till the end of time and loved it I then wanted to go back and play the older games but...
Summary: But nothing really right either. With games like Crisis Core and Chains of Olympus showing us what the PSP can do there is no excuse to continue re-releasing 10-year old products, even if they have been brushed up.
