Achtung! Langes Review!

[h1]Nicht für jeden geeignet.[/h1]


Vor fast 9 Jahren habe ich Star Ocean - The Last Hope auf der Xbox 360 gespielt und war als JRPG Zocker bis auf ein paar Mängel sehr angetan von dem Spiel. Damals fand ich die Story gut, die Charktere ganz brauchbar und das Kampfsystem blieb mir in guter Erinnerung. Nun, einige Jahre später, wird man jedoch von der Realität eingeholt und es wird Zeit die rosarote Brille abzusetzen. Es ist immer noch ein gutes Spiel, besonders für den Preis. Verglichen mit heutigen JRPGs muss man sich jedoch auf eine gehörige Zeitreise gefasst machen.

1. Die Charaktere: Von nervig bis liebenswürdig und von süß bis sexy ist alles dabei. Auch so ziemlich jedes Klischee wird erfüllt. Schon damals hatte der Hauptprotagonist, Edge Maverick, polarisiert. Entweder man mochte ihn oder man hasste ihn. Einfach aus dem Grund weil viele Zwischensequenzen mit ihm wirklich arg overacted wirken und weil er eine totale Dramaqueen ist. Darauf muss man sich einstellen und damit umgehen können, ansonsten sollte man von dem Spiel die Finger lassen. Andere Charaktere der Crew wie Reimi, Lymle, Faize oder Meracle sind bedeutend weniger aufdringlich und nicht so fürchterlich overacted.

2. Das Kampfsystem: Star Ocean 4 kommt mit einem Echtzeitkampfsystem daher, das einem viele Freiheiten gibt. Man kann jederzeit zwischen den Charakteren wechseln, die Skills und Taktiken können im Kampf angepasst werden und man kann zwischen automatisierten oder komplett manuellen Angriffen umschalten. Die KI der Mitstreiter ist mal mehr, mal weniger brauchbar. Stellt man z.B. Edges KI nicht so ein, dass sie den Verbrauch von Mana meidet, haut sie das Mana raus aus gäbe es kein morgen mehr. Bei den stellensweise extrem langen und zähen Dungeons (dazu gleich mehr) ist das nicht nur unglaublich nervig, sondern auch gefährlich. Von den Mana auffüllenden Beeren kann man max. nur 20 Stück dabei haben. Lässt man Edges KI ständig alles raushauen, steht man schnell ohne Mana da. Die anderen Mitstreiter und man selber verbraucht schließlich ebenfalls Mana.

Unbrauchbar ist die KI bei Bosskämpfen. Die Bosse in dem Spiel haben fast immer eine bestimmte Schwachstelle, die meist nur kurz angegriffen werden kann. Die KI der Mitstreiter interessiert das jedoch nicht, es wird fröhlich angegriffen und Mana verschwendet obwohl sie praktisch keinen Damage austeilen weil sie nicht auf die Schwachstelle gehen. Es wird daher oft vorkommen, dass eure Mitstreiter ohne Mana dastehen und fast nicht mehr zu gebrauchen sind. Entweder ihr frischt das Mana mittels der Beeren wieder auf oder ihr lasst sie links liegen und kümmert euch alleine um den Boss. Letzteres ist meist effektiver, so merkwürdig das auch klingen mag.

3. Die Welten/Dungeons: Die Welten und Dungeons sind abwechslungsreich aber auch strikt linear. Die Monster laufen frei auf ihr herum, es gibt also keine Zufallskämpfe. Gefüllt sind die Gebiete wie für ein JRPG typisch mit Beutetruhen und verschiedenen Spots, um Erze oder Kräuter abzubauen. Ohne zu spoilern kann ich an dieser Stelle nicht viel mehr schreiben. Was ich allerdings sagen kann und das gilt auch gleich als Warnung: Bringt viel Durchhaltevermögen mit. Es artet teileweise so sehr aus, dass ihr 2-3h am Stück in Gebieten oder Dungeons hängt und nichts anders macht als kämpfen, kämpfen und noch mal kämpfen. Selbstverständlich werden die Areale mit zunehmenden Fortschritt immer nerviger. Man muss viele Umwege laufen weil der direkte Weg z.B. durch Laserwände oder defekte Türen blockiert ist. Um die Laser sichtbar zu machen oder Türen zu öffnen, muss man zu gewissen Schaltern, die natürlich auch nicht auf direkten Weg erreichbar sind. Das ist fast wie ein Teufelskreis und für mich aus heutiger Sicht unglaublich nervig. Ist man von so was schnell gefrustet, muss man eine große Portion Selbstmotivation mitbringen, sonst kann es schnell passieren, dass man das Spiel nie wieder anrührt.

4. Story und Grafik: Wer auf Sci-Fi Storys mit Anime Touch steht, der wird viel Freude mit diesem Spiel haben. Vorangetrieben wird die Story primär durch Zwischensequen, die wirklich lange gehen können. Die längsten gehen 25-30 Minuten, solltet ihr z.B. mit dem Wireless Xbox One Controller spielen, kann es durchaus passieren, dass der sich wegen Inaktivität ausschaltet :D. Nach der pompösen Einleitung mit dem Start der Raumschiffe fällt man storytechnisch leider erst mal in ein sehr tiefes Loch. Es braucht unwahrscheinlich viel Zeit(8-9h), bis die Story langsam wieder in Gang kommt. Belohnt wird man dafür mit einigen vorhersehbaren und einigen überraschenden Wendungen, Themen wie Zeitreisen und Parallelwelten werden angeschnitten. Die große Bedrohung, die sich im Laufe der Story herauskristallisiert wirkt auch tatsächlich bedrohlich. Alle beteiligten müssen ihre Kräfte bündeln, um den Feind zu besiegen.

Abschließend noch ein paar Worte zur Grafik: Damals auf der Xbox 360 oder PS3 war das Spiel schon kein optischer Leckerbissen und das ist es auch heute nicht. Gut gealtert ist das Spiel nur bedingt. Die Texturen sind oft extrem niedrig aufgelöst, außer bei den Hauptcharakteren herrscht akute Polygonarmut und die vielen Specular Maps flimmern fröhlich vor sich hin. Letzter Punkt ist auf PC dank deutlich höherer Auflösung und AA kein großes Problem mehr. Ganz weg ist es aber auch nicht. Die Schatten, insbesondere die auf den Charakteren (Haare!) sind ebenfalls sehr niedrig aufgelöst und flimmern deutlich sichtbar. Dagegen hilft leider auch keine 4K Auflösung. High-End PCs zaubert das Spiel nur ein müdes Lächeln ins virtuelle Gesicht. Selbst in 4K ist eine GTX 1080 völlig unterfordert, die Auslastung schwankt zwischen 20-40% und der Takt bewegt sich weit unter dem Maximum. Wichtig für alle mit einem 144 Hz Monitor: Die FPS auf 60 limitieren! Star Ocean 4 läuft sonst viel zu schnell und ist logischerweise komplett unspielbar.

Star Ocean - The Last Hope hab ich schon auf der X360 gespielt und war bisher von der Story, Gameplay usw begeistert.
Ist halt ein typisches JRPG.

Die Portierung auf den PC ist allerdings nicht so gut gelungen.
Im Fenstermodus kann man gut spielen, allerdings lässt sich die Fenstergröße nicht ändern.
Im Vollbildmodus ist das Spiel leider unspielbar bisher.
Ich hoffe mal das da bald ein Update kommt und es auch im Vollbildmodus spielbar wird.

Zu meinem Kritikpunkt im Volbildmodus:

Im Menue und in der Spielwelt bewegt man sich zu schnell (wie im Zeitraffer) genauso auch die Zwischensequenzen, dort überlappen sich die Gesprächspartner und man versteht nichts, vor lauter Stimmern wirrwarr. Im Fenstermodus ist dann alles ganz normal, wie es sein sollte.

Sobald sich was durch Updates tut, werde ich meine Review dem entsprechend anpassen und eine Positivwertung abgeben. Aber bis dahin gibt's nur die negative.


Nachtrag: 30.11.2017

Nach hilfreichen Tipps der Community (schaut einfach in die Kommentare), Läuft The Last Hope nun auch im Vollbild flüssig und ich kann meine Wertung ins Positive setzen.

Exhilarating and bombastic in equal measure, even tho' its story never reaches the same euphoria as its predecessor.
It makes up for this with a tactical and action combat system, interesting crew management system, tons of content, and a marvellous remaster job that has the game running beautifully on my pc

Decent large scale JRPG but also has all the worst things JRPGs offer. Long drawn out dungeons, endless combat encounters, empty large scale world, plot turns to a mess, xp and item grind. It just failed to grab my attention.

having played this game completely through on both the xbox360 and ps3, several times through, I am happy to say that this is by far the best gameplay in the Star Ocean series to this point. the combat controls so fluidly, that it makes battles enjoyable. it's also nice to see how humanity began its emergence to the stars before the pangalactic federation and the stumbles they had because they hadn't created the UP3 yet.

Pros:
Really nothing. This is a dated game with zero to offer of interest in the first few hours. If a game doesn't grab you immediately (w/o 30 mins of initial cutscenes), it will never get you.

Mehs
Graphics
Music
Enemy design (for its time)

Cons
Camera control is atrocious
Stereotypical characters
Lack of personality and diversity (everything.... EVERYTHING is predictable)
A lot of meaningless text and interactions
Combat is so droll it makes tic tac toe look dynamic
Too waifu for me.

I don't recommend this at all. Probably go play any Final Fantasy game.

It's still a good game, even though it is plagued by an infinite list of annoying things

PRO :
-Arumat, the only character that make sense in the whole game
-Myura (i think you know why)
-Your character end up god like (at the end of the game)
-You can teleport (at the end of the game)
-Synthesis is nice (at the end of the game)
-Fighting is nice (at the end of the game)
-You can drink everytime they say universe (at the end of the game)
-Bacchus (well he's trying at least)
-The music is nice (at the end of the game ?)
-The bunny is cool (at least)
-Meracle (cat girl)

CONS :
-they literally went out of their way to fix some bugs that made the game better, like the overflow trick, but they didn't try to make the game better at all
-Edge (is too edgy)
-you can't change the walking character, you are stuck with Edge forever (i can feel your disappointment from here)
-you can't zoom or move the map, one of the worst idea ever
-The story is generally bad (but hopefully i didn't came for the story)
-Myura (yes she's in both, no it's not a mistake)
-Faize (hello i have a super ship but no let's walk ???, so much more to say but hey no spoiler)
-Sarah (too slow)
-Lymle (why is there a kid in the party ???)
-Reimi (too annoying)
-You take forever to walk everywhere
-You get a bunny to go faster but you actually go slower
-Did i say Edge ?
-I can't hear the word universe anymore

SO: TLH is a generally poor follow-up to the spectacular Star Oceans 1, 2 and 3. It's not a new game anymore, certainly not by the time I got around to writing this review, but it is indeed a game, and it does the Star Ocean thing.

So apparently it's a Star Ocean game.

Just don't go looking for strong characterization (there really isn't any; they're all weird and unrealistic in often over the top ways that smack of bad writing and general shallowness); it isn't here.

It's not terrible though. The gameplay's fine. The characters are boring weird AF JRPG third-rate manga tropes that add exactly nothing memorable but also don't really deviate from their tropes either.

Ever heard the saying 'C's get degrees'?

This game got its 'I'm A Real Game' degree with straight C's.

It excels nowhere and leaves a lot of potential on the table, but doesn't really strike out hard anywhere either.

It might be a more interesting game if it did.

Do not be discouraged by the overwhelming time intensive looking trophies and definitely do not let the battle simulator / tutorial fool you - it's uncharacteristically hard and doesn't represent the actual game's combat at all. Also don't let the second real boss discourage you either, that's also uncharacteristically hard compared to the rest of the game.

While not as good as the older Star Ocean games, still an absolutely fantastic and fun ARPG, Blindsiding is one of the most satisfying things I've ever done in a game. Absolutely deserves more attention for it's quality. By the numbers compared to it's siblings in the series, but sometimes that isn't a bad thing at all.

For the price, worth it. Don't let the overly rabid community fool you, this game is still considerably better than some of the weaker Tales Of games, and WELL above the bar for a good ARPG, albeit, I tend to like playing games being a more passive affair that I can do while watching youtube or TV shows, with bursts of storytelling, so your taste may vary.

As for performance, on my particular rig (i5 6400 and GTX 1060 6GB ), it plays like a dream, buttery smooth, and looking absolutely fantastic, on 1080p max settings. In fact, this is one of the few games that RUNS at 4K 60FPS on this rig, with some drops to 40 FPS. Incredible considering most games choke and die when I turn on 4K. I've seen absolutely none of the issues mentioned in some of the other reviews, granted if I can't use borderless by default I always use Borderless Gaming or Magic Borderless to make it work.

I am a very big fan of Tri-Ace's style and I would hope that the Tri-Ace games currently on PC encourage them to port more games to PC.

Ok hear me out.. the game play is fluid, fun. That being said..Its story is horrible when compared to other star ocean games prior, do not get me started on the after this one. I recommend it only for the game play if you want a story play one the previous titles ((yes I have low hours on this only because I played, beat it on PS4))

On my AMD Radeon Sapphire Nitro+ Rx 580 8 GB, everything is a smooth 1080p / 60 fps. i enjoyed the previous iterations stories like Star Ocean 3 more but this (over a decade old) game (SO4) is still better gameplay wise than other rpgs created today lol. if only square truly supported Star Ocean like they did FF series.. Hopefully they release Star ocean remasters of 1 & 2 or even an HD rework of Star ocean 3 for Steam.

I've had stuttering issues with this game for some reason as soon as I got off the ship. 16 GB RAM, Geforce GTX 1660 Ti, and an i5-9400F. Even with 250 GB free space on the hard drive, it just seems to have performance issues. If you buy it, I highly recommend you test it out quickly so that you don't end up stuck with the game like I did because I had to wait until I had free time to actually try it. I doubt they're going to have patches to fix performance issues at this point.

It is true to what you would expect of Star Ocean, a bit of a rough start when you're not familiar with this particular game but a solid addition to the franchise. Overall the story and game play are exactly what you'd want from a star ocean game, I think it was a very good installment.

Just play it. It is NOT Star Ocean: The 2nd Story, despite the nice nostalgia at times. It is halfway between 2 and 3, in terms of quality, I believe (I know that 3 killed a lot of the series' die-hard fanship, but still, I personally loved it, so...). Just play it, and enjoy. Not worth a full $50, but hey, here it is at $20 :)

A few years ago this game caught my attention as one similar to Final Fantasy and other JRPGs out there. I bought it on sale awhile ago and now that I have had the chance to play it's reminiscent of the advances of gameplay of its time. It's a good classic with just enough challenge and engaging story to keep me hooked enough to finish. Might be a little childish though, but mature enough for kids below 18 to appreciate it.

Pros:
- great battle system (good enough to outweigh all cons)
- awesome music (something to expect from genius Motoi Sakuraba)
- simple and self explanatory invention/item creation system (but not Welch!)

Cons:
- cringy writing and voice acting
- large, empty and boring dungeons with unnecessary disintegration ring variations and boring puzzles and repeating textures

In short: if one is able to get over cringiness, one will enjoy the game. I was, and I enjoy the game.

Although Star Ocean 4 lacks compelling characters and most of them can be very annoying, it has a great story that suits as very pleasant prequel to all other titles previously released.
The cornerstones of this game are the battle mechanics and the exploration of different planets, while some are recurring from others previously Star Oceans.
Back in the release to the XBOX 360, Star Ocean 4 already had astonishing graphics, and with this HD Remaster, it wouldn't be different. It clearly brings joy and turns things more vivid thus making you binge play it.
If you haven't got the chance to play in the XBOX 360, it's a must to play .

Godawful plot. Mediocre gameplay. Mediocre everything. After receiving an achievement for pressing the attack button a certain number of times, I had a moment of clarity and decided to put this game down and reevaluate my life.

Is it pretty? Sure.
Does it have all of the core elements of a Star Ocean game? Yes.
Is there any reason at all to play this? No.

Do not waste your life playing this game.
3.5/10, at least it's not malware

Pacing is a little slow, but its a classic JRPG and replaying this reminds me of the love I had when I first really got into video games. Even if it is a little slow, the plot is thought provoking, the characters are immensely likable, and the combat still one of the more unique ones I have played.

The story is good, but the controls are a little frustrating. I can't alt+tab out of the program without it making the game windowed again, which forces me to go into the settings and revert the change frequently. I also wish I could customize the controls. As they are, I frequently press buttons that do nothing in combat or try to open a menu, but cannot. I'm 26 hours in... it's either me or the game just doesn't have intuitive controls.

This game is far from perfect and I couldn't bring myself to finish it, but I still like it to an extent.

The story is unique, it's a space opera similar to Uchuu Senkan Yamato or Star Trek, or Mass Effect. While it's not life-changing (at least for me), the writing and especially cutscenes are enjoyable. Gameplay wasn't interesting to me and it's the main reason why I dropped it - I'm not a fan of Tales of style of combat, so maybe that's why. The only Tales of I like a lot is Zestiria, and even that mostly because of the story.
I was quite surprised when I saw that the entire ship is open for exploration, however there's not much to do on it compared to Mass Effect 1-3.
The artistic style is very good, as expected from Japanese developers. The ship, while lacking activities, is nice looking, the character design is spot-on and the locations manage to hide the game's old engine.

Star Ocean The Last Hope is an enjoyable ARPG. Last Hope, First Departure and Second Evolution, also Tales of Zestiria are so far the only games from the franchise of Star Ocean / Tales of that I like. Vesperia was close but I couldn't identify with the majority of its characters.

TL:DR: Star Ocean The Last Hope is a really good game especially if you know to go into a tri-ace RPG not expecting a good story for that you'd play Star Ocean 2 and Valkyrie Profile 2 (The Best Game No one played)


Graphics: 8/10 - The Character Faces can be of at times but for the most part It's solid.

Music: 10/10 - I Beat off to Motoi Sakuraba on a daily.

Voice Acting: 7/10 - Decent Performances Except Lymle and Sarah, better than(Most FUNimation Dubs)

Story - You don't play Tri-Ace games for a decent Story well except Valkyrie Profile 2 and Star Ocean 2.

Gameplay: 10/10 - This combat Is very Tales of but with free movement and the Special Arts Chain on their own none of that Base Art, Arcane Art Shit.

Characters: 7/10 - I think a good chunk of these characters had pretty good Development Myuria being a stand out.

Overall: 7/10 - Star Ocean 4 is a really good game I Beat off to this shit (not as much as Star Ocean 3 tho) but FUCK!
Play this game and If you listen to reviews who shit talk this game they need to eat some pills and wash it down with Acetone.

Ah, star ocean....my favourite series that gets shafted by square ( and in SO5 case gets very little budget) in favour of DQ and FF.
Star ocean 4 was one of the big reason why i bought a XBox360 ( other was because it was cheaper ) and i put in about 250hrs into. I then bought it for the ps3 when i finally got one and i bought it again on PC because i love this franchise and i hope to see the First and Second come to the PC.
Its a very long game and if you love your JRPGS packed full of sidequest and anime cliches you won't be disappointed. The star ocean series also have Battle Trophies which are for the hardcore fans of the series and it requires multiple playthroughs on different diffculties ( it carries over in New Game+ )
The port is really good tbh, i don't have a 4k monitor so i can't say how good it looks in 4k.

IMO the weakest thing about this game is the characters and its not because of the cliches ( its what SO is known for ) they just look bland, the best characters are meracle ( a skimpy cat girl who uses her claws in battle ) and Myuria ( Sexy milf mage who i think is better then lymle). it also doesn't help that the characters give off a very creepy doll look but the anime concept art looks really nice ( they should of done something like Tales )

The strongest part of the game is the Battle system its very enjoyable and can be complex but again if you don't like the characters this can be a chore which doesn't help when you grind to finish quest. I also really like the private action in this game which you get if you develope a close relationship with your party members which ties in to the endings you can get ( every character has a ending in this game which i really like ).

in the end, this game is really long it will take you up to 50hrs+ especially if you want to get the battle trophies, unlock endings, unlock recipes, complete dungeons ect and its well worth the price and is a better game then SO5

Great Game!

It's a lot of fun. The graphics are really good & I liked the story. Kay? I wan't expecting much going by the reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised. The combat system is fun, and the music is good. The voice acting is like others have said, but I liked the story, so it worked. Kay? The space ships are totally awesome! And the space cut scenes are epic! This was a fun game to play! Kay!

My 2nd favorite J-RPG after Magna Carta 2 a XBOX360 Exclusive, this game was originally a PS3 game until it got ported to PC. Almost threw my PC off the window in the fight vs the Phantom Soldiers :)

Pros -

- Space exploration, what more needs to be said.
- Awesome combat, love all the visual effects and how over the top it all is. Every character gets a lot of variety for combat as well.
- 5 out of the 8 playable characters are really likable, though some do have a more cliche setting than others. Myuria was my favourite as she came across the least generic imo.
- Story is nice, but nothing groundbreaking. It had some bad moments, but also really great.
- Love the music, especially on the second from last planet. Reminded me of the music in Vermilion City in Pokémon Soul silver.
- Graphics are nice, not spectacular, but they hold up enough to still give off some nice visuals and aesthetics.

Cons -

- 3 out of the 8 playables are just horrible character wise, mainly due to their one tone voice acting. They are atleast fun to use, but otherwise terrible.
- English voice acting in general isn't great.
- Crafting system is a tedious mess, don't even bother trying to learn it for yourself. Look it all up online.
- A couple of storylines trap you in areas a bit too long for my liking.
- Backtracking is present and in quite hefty amounts. Not a massive deal but must be mentioned, especially as there's no mounts or anything to get around.
- Hate that the weapon skins don't show up in cutscenes. This is obviously a port of the PS3 version, where all the cutscenes are pre rendered.
- Side quests are generic fetch and kill rubbish.

Conclusion -

A fun time sink with a good story, great combat and a cast of characters where the majority are likable. Just don't go in expecting this to be a Witcher 3 level game with mass amounts of depth, and you'll have fun! Oh and one last tip....Put the voices in Japanese, you'll thank me later.

7/10.

20 hours of the 26 i played are grinding, i play games not to spend my life levelling up, i would do that irl.

I was interested in the convoluted story, but the bosses are way too bs, you have to target this one specific boss in one specific place specifically, with one specific stick with one specific element with one specific character you didn't bother to level. (Easy mode is not fucking easy) (your characters don't all level at the same time) grind more peasant.

sure you can battle him for an hour and a half but that wont kill him because reasons.
Watch on youtube so you don't waste 100 hours of your life on monotony.

Not a bad game if you aren't going to cry about bosses being too hard, regularly level your characters, and use item creation to create elemental grenades to help you beat the first few sets of bs bosses. Not particularly hard to level as the bonus board is pretty easy to fill up with +10% exp stacks. Once you are sufficiently leveled and have pumped up your equipped battle skills and arts etc. and equipped some decent weapons and armor the bosses get much easier. Over all not a bad game just not an easy one.

Anime star trek in 4k. Listen, this is just a ps3 port with a bump in resolution and steady frame rate. I've read some people had issues but maybe im lucky, i just installed it and it works as intended and as good as i can expect from a ported JRPG from the ps3 days. It didnt give me any headaches. Its anime star trek.... a fun mix of anime and scifi clearly star trek inspired in many ways.... The combat is average but once you level up and get stronger abilities it gets fun, dont judge it off of how you start out.

Go into this expecting a res and fps bumped up ps3 game (it still looks like a ps3 era game, just clearer) and hot space chicks and chicks that may be dudes but it dont matter just dont ask and star trek inspired space adventures....... its worth it.

Ok, so I have played this game multiple times on multiple platforms but never completely finished the story. I absolutely love the updated graphics and the controller controls (which you should use cause they are way better than the M&K controls) still feel really good. If you've ever played a Star Ocean game before you should know what to expect other for all others I recommend starting on easy to beat the game once just so you get the story. Then after that play on harder for the battle trophies and achievements cause just like any other JRPG it will suck your life away (30+ hours just for story) and you should totally just follow a walk through so you can have some life while playing this. And if you've played it more than once like me You should also be excited because cheat engine works for this so you can easily get a play through in faster than you usually would be able to.









Please don't whine and gripe at me for being a cheater I just don't have the time to play jrpgs like I did back in college. And this is a single player game so what I do with mine doesn't affect you at all, that being said I don't condone cheating in pvp/multiplayer games where cheating actually can effect another players enjoyment of the game.

Have fun with this game!

TL;DR - Has some flaws, but still enjoyable.

Pros:
- Battle system is fun.
- Most of the story is pretty decent, enjoyable, emotional and funny at times.
- Characters are well developed and you feel an attachment to them.
- Runs much better than the PS3 version.
- The bonus board mechanic is unique.
- XP distribution is good, no sharing, everyone gets the same XP.
- Map is useful, once you can see the chests.

Neutral:
- People complain about the voice acting, but I thought the English one was fine, much better than looking at the translation with Japanese voice acting.

Cons:
- Lack of save points. Once I played 1.5 hrs before I saw a save point.
- No fast travel, have to run back and forth, for ages.
- No quest or current objective marker or record.
- Only fetch side quests.
- Long Cut scenes, I enjoyed most of them, but one of them lasted 30 mins.
- Crafting system is too much work.
- No way to know upcoming skills / symbols so as to save up skill points for them.
- Too much backtracking to get items.
- No way to reset skills later in game, bad decisions are stuck.
- Last boss has a huge difficulty spike.

Score: 7.5 / 10

Buy at Your Own Risk:

I actually like this game. The Star Ocean series is basically Anime Star Trek.
The difficulty spikes, mediocre voice acting, inconsistent textures, backtracking, etc. don't bother me. What does bother me is that the game will crash at seemingly random intervals for some people (myself included). It wasn't much of a problem for most of the game (only got hit twice in non-critical areas), but it's really frustrating when you've attempted to beat the last boss SEVEN TIMES only for the game to crash mid-battle for no apparent reason. I've tried all of the troubleshoots I can find (including uninstalling and reinstalling) and the problem persists. I'm sure I'll get lucky and finish the battle one day, but I'm done with this game for the time being.

Unless a patch or mod fixes the crashing issue (unlikely at this late stage), I can't in good conscience recommend buying it.

Fun game to kill time, but the plot sometimes feels incoherent or rushed, and some characters are added to the party out of nowhere. The story sometimes feels quite slow as well and the planets sometimes don't feel quite original. However, the battle system is magnificent, as well as the world exploration. So, good gameplay, but lacks in creativity.

Having sunk 95 hours into it, and not even getting into Post Game (I don't think I will) It's obvious that I recommend it.

Do you like leveling, do you like choice of characters with very different play styles. Is Meracle such incredible destructive fun to play? Then it's probably for you.

The dialog and voice acting is cringe, so I went for Japanese voices (I'm English) and subtitles. A LOT more bearable.
The side quests are crap
Lot's of QOL features pretty much universal to RPGs now are missing. Simple thinks like marking current quest destination are missing. So you spend a lot of time talking to everyone again and again. Unless of course you're sensible and jot down notes on bits of paper!

Lot's of other things I can't remember are annoying, but I played the story all the way through and loved it!

The combat is fun without frustration, I didn't find the difficulty spikes that other people mentioned, it all seemed very reasonable. Maybe because I chomp up sidequests and am happy to do a bit of lvl grinding I was a bit OP, but hey. I like being OP

Honestly pretty fun. though, there are some frustrating parts like the amount of enemies in a dungeon (some in tight corridors), the weird camera, the fact that only the xbox button prompt is available (install mod if you want other button prompt). and lastly, how hard some of the bosses are.

OK there are some slight flaws to this version of the game, however for fans of tales I think it's more about the story. For all those haters out there that's your opinion. I'm going to enjoy.

I'd like to start by saying that i think Star Ocean as a franchise is very underrated. It never revolutionized the rpg genre, but it was always an excelent saga with some very nice elements to it like a very solid and fun battle system, good stories and character development. This chapter falls in this description perfectly, though not as well as it's predecessor (one of the top 5 rpg of all times in my opinion). It has some weaknesses in the technical department, though nothing major, and some of the protagonists feel a bit underdeveloped or downright annoying at times. There's quite a bit of content to play through but it still manages to be engaging to the end. In short a very good game.

A classic RPG which I thoroughly enjoyed from days gone by. With a controller, it is still one of the best classics to play. The controls are not smooth with a keyboard set up but can be done. The story is wide ranging and the characters are traditional but the dialog is well done and entertaining.

Another one of those ps3/360 games I just re-bought on steam. I beat this game a long time ago, kind of liked it then and I have to say I like it a bit more now.

It’s nothing spectacular, in fact, the game is a bit grindy, the story is melodramatic and heavy-handed. The combat, while fun is either just grinding through easy battles with the exception of a few enemies that just frustrate the living hell out of you.

If you like that ps2-classic style of JRPG – this game will give you that. The characters are little weird because the game is EXTREMY Japanize. That aside, they are fun, feel very unique when you play them and even the most irritating ones have their heap of charm as well.

This game tries, it really does and it has a few tropes of Star Ocean that is pretty great. The game play usually is the best aspect of Star Ocean games. Star Ocean is maybe not an underrated series, but I often feel like people don’t give this franchise a chance. It’s a bit of a problem to play some of the older games which are said to be some of the better ones. I’ve yet to play all the games, but I have played some – all-together, Star Ocean is a fun and interesting series with solid character and fun interactions and some of the best gameplay in the genre. Last hope doesn’t quite archive all that it can, but it is a damn blast if you are tolerant of some of the things I mention above.

New to JRPGs? Sit this one out until you played some more.
If you are a veteran and haven’t played this game; I think you should.

Story is decent, definitely not the best out of the games before this. The story kinda jumps around and makes it seem like some of the arcs or missions are kinda worthless. The gameplay is better than SO3 in my opinion, but it's still repetitive in a way. The characters are likeable with the exception of maybe one. Meracle best character though hands down.

It's like the Deadly Premonition of RPGs, only without the memorable characters, gripping story, or charm. What can I say about this game...

It has one of the worst casts I have ever seen in a JRPG. Tired tropes and annoying, unfunny comic relief are substituted for genuine personality in pretty much every case. Their creepy doll eyes also remind me of the puppets from Team America. On top of that they love to hear themselves talk, rambling on and on about nothing in particular during half hour long cutscenes. This cast could seriously turn a lunch order into the epic of Gilgamesh. What passes for a plot here is utter nonsense. Things just suddenly happen with no build up and seemingly for no reason at all. Characters make baffling decisions that will have will infuriate you if you care and leave you laughing if you don't. I've heard people compare this to a Tommy Wiseau movie, and they're absolutely spot on.

Gameplay is equally terrible and lacks quality of life features that would be considered mandatory today. There is no town portal until the very end of the game, crafting can only be done in one specific location, and reserve party members gain no xp. The realtime combat is fiddly and imprecise due to the computer taking control away from you while attacking. Pressing attack will autopilot you towards the enemy and execute a canned combo animation that bolts you in place, preventing you from following the enemy who has now moved just out of reach. There is no command queue for you party members, so if you want to quickly switch characters to cast a spell or use an item, you have to wait until they're done whatever the computer currently has them doing. You can brute force your way to success using certain battle skills and level grinding, but it's just not a good time no matter how you slice it. The game also has several aggravating gimmick bosses who are virtually invincible outside of a specific, three second attack animation. Your AI party will pound on them for zero damage, buffing their rush meter to full and causing them to go super sayan, at which point they take you behind the wood shed and it's all over. Have fun with that.

On top of everything else this game is lacking a lot of the features that make this series special to begin with. You have no control over your party composition and are stuck with the characters the main story gives you. Private actions have been eliminated from towns and are only available on the ship at a few predetermined points in the story. Skills no longer provide passive stat buffs, making most of them not worth the investment. Item creation is all but useless until the endgame since the materials you need to make anything even remotely useful are unavailable until then.

I forced myself to finish this game, and I pretty much wish I hadn't. Only a small minority of the people who purchased it actually have, and I can see why. If you played this game on xbox back in the day, and it was your first rpg and 'the bestest game ever', then I apologize for my harsh review. If you are literally anyone else, forget this busted up fossil of a game and play literally anything else.
