The year is A.D. 2087. In the aftermath of World War III, Earth has been ravaged and the population decimated by a deteriorating environment. The countries that survived have joined together to form the Greater Unified Nations and turned their eyes skyward…to space. Edge Maverick and his childhood friend Reimi Saionji are chosen as pioneer members of the Space Reconnaissance Force, which was created to seek out new worlds beyond the stars. Their ship, the Calnus, takes its place on the lunar launch pad along with four other starships of the first reconnaissance fleet. These ships – humanity’s last hope – blast off one-by-one and sail into the awaiting wormhole that leads to the vast star ocean. And so, Edge and his crew begin their voyage in search of a new haven for humanity...and a second chance.

"...this is a great one for PS3 owners who missed out when the game hit the 360 last year.  Steven Hopper, GameZone.com

    Expert Review Star Ocean: The Last Hope - International - PS3 Review
    By: Luigi Bastardo Blogcritics.org Reviews
    Published on: 3/4/2010 8:20 PM
    Having grown up in the era of the Atari 5200, ColecoVision, and Nintendo 8-bit systems, the only RPG that ever crossed my path was the original Zelda game. Since then, there have been many games that have caused boys and men alike to sit in front of their television sets for weeks on end and challenge every aspect of their personal and business lives. Sweethearts get ignored, caffeinated beverages and junk foods are consumed en masse, and nerd points are accumulated as one video game geek after another calls in sick to their workplace in order to beat the game....read the full review

    The Star Ocean franchise has been around the Japanese role-playing game scene for a long time. While it might not have quite the same infamy as Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, I've always had a sentimental attachment to the series. I can still remember the profound impact Star Ocean: The Second Story had on me when I played it on the original PlayStation, and I had the pleasure of reviewing both PSP remakes: Star Ocean: First Departure and Star Ocean: Second Evolution. So this marks the third time I've reviewed a Star Ocean game, as Star Ocean: The Last Hope International is now available for the PS3...Star Ocean: The Last Hope, the fourth game in the Star Ocean series, first hit the 360 in early 2009. Like other JRPGs before it (Eternal Sonata being a good example), Star Ocean: The Last Hope is now available for eager PlayStation 3 owners looking for another intergalactic quest. The "International" part of the title mainly refers to the very welcome inclusion of the original Japanese language track, as well as a minor but still appreciated option to change the HUD to its original design, which features stylish anime portraits...Some of the most notable differences between Last Hope and other Star Ocean titles include the Blindside system and the Bonus Board, both elements being huge improvements to the formula. By holding down the circle button, players can charge up their Rush gauge (which, when filled, boosts the character's speed and strength) but also enter a defensive state. In this state, hitting the left analog stick before an enemy attacks you will execute a Blindside, which confuses the enemy and causes your character to rush around to the enemy's back. This is an extremely helpful technique and it also adds a much needed layer of strategy to a system that traditionally just required the mashing of one or two buttons...Star Ocean: The Last Hope International is a great JRPG and the inclusion of the original Japanese language track is always a welcome addition, especially when dealing with very Japanese characters...Even though the game suffers from some visual issues, and save point infrequency can be a huge annoyance, I loved playing Last Hope. The battle system is tremendously entertaining, the cast is a charming ensemble of travelers and the Private Actions continue to fuel proper character development and demonstrate the beauty of optional antics. Although Final Fantasy XIII is right around the corner, Star Ocean: The Last Hope International is a must-play for all you JRPG nuts. - Ryan Clements
