Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still a great series! The first time I played Star Ocean was for PS2 and it was Til The End Of Time and I loved it. I switched platforms and I wasn't quite sure how I would like it on the 360. The game was great. Wasn't as good as Til the end of time. I liked the story line better on that one. This one last hope, is up to par. I was not dissatisfied with game at all. If your tired of the Final Fantasy series, (which should never happen) I would recommend this to any RPG gamer or someone looking to try RPG. I beat the game a while ago, so I can't remember much details, but I did like the fighting system and the weapons.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Slow, boring, and difficult I bought this game thinking it would be mildly enjoyable. I played one of the older games long ago for just a bit, and thought it was alright. I've played games with similar mechanics and enjoyed them (Tales of Vesperia) and games with similar visual styles and enjoyed them (Phantasy Star Universe) so it seemed like an obvious choice. I played for a bit, and was struck by a couple of things, at first. The graphics are PS2 quality; The render distance is pitiful and the environments could almost even be from an N64 game. I can deal with that. The combat is needlessly complicated, and feels very clunky. I'm not expecting massive polish here, either, but it's just downright awkward. Camera controls in and out of combat are strange, and half the time the camera seems to be making things intentionally difficult for you. Speaking of difficult, the difficulty curve in this game isn't a curve, it's a ledge, and when you hit it, all your characters die and you lose. If you really want to get further in the game you need to grind for XP, and that means a lot of empty battles against pointless monsters, with clunky controls and frankly irritating characters. To top all of this off the game seems to be comprised of equal parts gameplay and cutscenes. You can skip the cutscenes, and in their one, sad flash of brilliance the devs give you a quick text summary of each cutscene. Unfortunately, whether you watch the cutscenes or not you have no way of knowing what to do afterward. Probably half the time I spent playing was wandering, talking to everyone I could find, trying to figure out what I'm supposed to be doing. It even worked occasionally. Put all that together and you have a pretty irritating experience. Three disks worth of it, which seems absolutely insane to me. Definitely not worth my $10, and I can't possibly recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing JRPG One of the best JRPGs I have ever played. The storyline is pretty decent and the characters are likeable. I love the fact that you can switch between characters in battle and how there's a variety of moves to choose from. The combat is pretty unique, however it can get repetitive at times. I personally love how there's a secret dungeon called the wondering dungeon at the end after you finish the story. The only thing i don't like about in this game is the lack of save points. Overall it is a satisfying game to play if you want a challenge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Game 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
