Star Ocean: The Last Hope Xbox 360

on 1/1/2012

I've played Star Ocean for as long as I can remember, and RPG's are a big part of my life. I played RPG's before the first Zelda game came out and everything was just text-based and I have to say that the Star Ocean series is my favorite "get away from reality" series. The Good: Lasting appeal can be about 30 hours or a few hundred hours. To finish absolutely everything in the game might take you about 300-500 hours. The fighting system takes a getting used to just like any other star ocean game, but ultimately it's your choice how far you want to go. You can challenge yourself and defeat the final boss at level 40 if you dare, I've done it and it took about 3 hours to beat without counting the few times that I have died. Like other Star Ocean games, there are post-game events and tons of stuff to do. The graphics are decent as what you'd expect from a A+ title for the Xbox 360 or PS3. This game is a jRPG and like a jRPG expect the difficulty level to be rather high for novice gamers. Once you unlock the final difficulty level, you will find yourself going insane but ultimately become an unstoppable machine by the post-game dungeons. The story is decent, and gets even better if you're familiar with the ancient astronaut theory and related theories because this game is designed with similar ideas and concepts that can be appreciated for what it's worth.

Pretty good RPG. Decent graphics. Decent plot (though it does get really abstract and Sci-Fi towards the middle/end). Pretty decent gameplay, thought the camera angles could be better and they do tend to throw off the controls at time. AI is pretty stupid, and you will have to switch between characters during some harder battles to keep people alive. Overall it was very entertaining, and a pretty solid game Read More
