To fill the void left by the absence of Kingdom Hearts 2 and Final Fantasy 12, I decided to buy this game, as it looked good in the shop... This game is very good, and traditional RPG gamers will love it as much as new fans of role players. The first thing I noticed about this game, was the stunning graphics. The graphics are some of the best I have seen on the Playstation 2.

The story revolves around a group of fighters called The Tears Of Blood, headed by a man named Calintz (who looks a lot like a women!). You join forces with comrades in the upcoming war against the Yason, the ultimate enemy of humans.

The battle system can be quite overwhelming at first, but you go through a large tutorial at the start (but there is a lot of information to take in at once, so, battle understanding grows while playing). The battles are almost turn-based, with the turns being decided by the Leadership Bar. You can swap to which of your party you wish to control, but you can only control one at a time. Attacks are carried out by using the Trinity Circle, where you must press either X or 0 at the correct time, or you fail.

Plays of Star Ocean may see a very small resemblance between Star Ocean and Magnacarta. Magnacarta borrows from traditional RPGs, with things such as Levelling Up and HP etc.

So, if you are a huge RPG fan, who likes a mixture of old and new RPG gaming, then this is for you...

Graphics - 10/10

Gameplay - 7/10

Music - 6/10

Longativity - 7.5/10

Overall - 8/10

Like the other reviewer I brought this game to fill the gap left by Final Fantasy in my gaming life. As far as RPGs go, it contains good graphics, interesting and likeable characters and a long life span however this is servely ruined by its hateful battle system and dissapointing storyline.

When battling monsters you are faced with a spinning circle of three images corresponding to buttons on the gamepad. In order to perform any move (attack, heal, and so on) you have to press the right button in the right order and at the right time. This means that essentially you are playing more a bust-a-move game then a RPG and you usually miss time a button just when you need to heal or deal the finishing blow!!!

As for the storyline, it starts off as involving. You care about the characters, follow their plight and at times can be moved. However after about two thirds in things are made really confusing (one character is revealled to also be another one, which makes no sense), while the ending is so unsatisfying that I felt completly ripped off!!! What's more, you have a opening music video before the game loads in which most the events depicted never occur just adding to your confusion and anger by the end of the game.

If you are looking for a RPG fix give it a whirl but if you love involving and satisfying storylines you may wish to stear clear!!!!!

I dont recommend buying this game.the game is good in terms of storyline, character design etc, but the battle system is aweful.If you havent already bought it, buy final fantasy 12 instead.

whats so wrong with the battle system you say?

Well for starters you can only control one character at a time(out of 3, the others just stand there - boring)

Combo system is a good idea - poorly executed (you need to complete a 3 button combo to do an attack - if you miss one u dont get a turn, and have to wait another 10mins for the bar to fill -_-)

if your hand slips or you make a mistake, you have to wait again, whilst your getting caned by the monsters(v.irritating)

when a character dies, your bar gets longer, and your enemies shorter - so an even LONGER wait, and quicker attacks from monsters(death prominent)
You have to wait for the bar to fill to use an item(i.e rez)

you cant use a single character for too long or your "chi" in the area runs out (again, annoying) - chi can be restored, but character chi types are not mentioned or included within the manu apart from the main character, and some random japaneese symbols are used for each type, who anybody who isnt japanesse wont have a clue, so this is very confusing

Whole system makes you want to smash your pad into your TV screen

so basically, dont buy this game unless you want to envoke a killing rampage. But if aweful battlesystems bother you, or you like a challenge, then this may be the game for you.I gave this 2 stars as all other aspects were good, but 3 stars seemed a little too kind considering the battle system.
