Star Ocean: The Last Hope
Single biggest flaw
The game overall is good the story is detailed and decently long, the character advancement is great, but the thing that kills the game is its single biggest flaw. There is no targeting system you literally have to run around and hope you can change your camera angle and hope you switch to the monster you want to kill. this makes beating some of the latter bosses next to impossible.
its not a bad game except for voice acting other than that most of the characters are good and there is a lot of content
i thought all sandbox games were fun,until i played this game,it just sucks,the graphics look like a drawing,just leave it on mute,it will save your ear this is just a head ache waiting to happen,just don't get it
I bought this game a couple of days ago, and at first it seems like a boring RPG then the opening cinematic takes off and the game takes on a life of it's own. I am hooked on this game and the story seems good so far and game play is flawless. Great game all around
this game is worth it to buy i mean only for people who love to play game like this i mean i myself came from many game series and this game is old and seem good to me , okay i know it came from japan but who cares the control are kinda odd not enough special attack and the attack is only 3 hit base which make me mad i mean tale of vespiera is a really amazing game and all with a 4 hit base but more combo and special but this game is worth it to collect cause you never know it might worth money in the future.HOW EVER the grapic is great the sound is great the control need more improvement the quest are good the storyline are worth it to understand
DO NOT BUY
Do not buy this game uncurable glitching and no real direction in the story just a complete waste of money and time seriously buy mass effect or even fable.
I fell in love with the series after The Second Story on the original PS and was always fascinated with the universe and storyline. This is a good game with a fairly interesting story. Combat is always excellent in Star Ocean and there are a multitude of things to do in the game beyond the main storyline. My issue is with some of the voice acting and melodramatics. The lead character, Edge, is a bit of a drama-queen and the little girl is preposterously weird. Kay? Seeing this come out for the 360 gives me at least a little hope that they will restore the series on the next-gen systems.
We brought the game we got to disc 2 then when we were fighting a big boss the game freezed we even went to get another and still had the same problem.
My favorite RPG
Ive been an RPG Fan since waaaaay back in the FF3 days. Ive played pretty much everything sqaure and tri ace put out and this is by far my favorite game. The story is amazing, some complain about the graphics but they are very smooth and definitely nothing to cry about. Its a typical star ocean game so if you didnt like the last you probably wont like this one.
Read before you buy
Unfortunately I listened to all the glowing reviews for this game on how great it really was. I stopped 1/3 of the way through because I couldn't stand the awful character interaction and script anymore. The graphics are good, the battle system works, but the story and character development is just bloody awful. I know it was made by the Japanese, and you can tell when you play it. It's all translated from formal Japanese, and it sounds just terrible in English. They bow and nod their heads annoyingly and half the conversations make no sense. I do not recommend this game to any serious gamer. Go buy Dragon Age, Mass Effect, even 3D Dot Game Heroes is better scripted than this stealing pile.
