Format: Paperback
I brought this guide after purchasing the PS3 International addition of the game and I do have to say that overall the book is very useful. The walkthrough is great (although watch out for a few spoilers) and the extensive information on the bonus dungeons is also very nice.

However there are a few issues I would like to raise. The guide isn't always 100% accurate. For instance, after completing the main story it told me to go and collect one of the main characters ultimate battle skills. Unfortunately, I didn't find out (until after a long in-game detour) that the skill wasn't available at that specific point on the PS3. As this book claims to cater for bother 360 and PS3 versions, this was a little dissapointing.

Secondly, I would have preferred more on the colliseum and item synthesis aspects of the game as I did end up having to search the internet for further information.

Finally, the metal scumbag levelling trick (which is possible on both 360 and PS3 with some minor setup differences) which was clearly put into the game for a purpose and is very useful for the all needed power levelling through the final dungeons was sadly not present in this guide at all.

Anyway, I would definitely recommend this guide, it was generally very good and despite a few minor problems, I did find it to be very helpful.

The book constantly refers to the PS3 version as the 360 version and looks totally rushed which is a shame but has all the info you need to get the platinum trophy if you really need it :)

Positive: excellent guide full of maps, tips of all kinds, updated to the PS3 version of the game, very colorful, easy to see ^ _ ^

Negative: With all the available time and exit when the Xbox 360 version, you could add other users tips on how to increase the level of more 'easily, or strategies to address the coliseum

Overall: Good

Great guide, but purchase elsewhere ... 13 May 2010
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are like me, and like to have a companion strategy guide for lengthy role-playing games, this is a must-have for those that purchase/have purchased Star Ocean for Xbox 360 or PS3.

However, I strongly suggest looking elsewhere for this strategy guide. I originally ordered the Star Ocean guide from amazon for under $14, shipped for free as part of the Super Saver Shipping and the item was listed as "in stock" from Amazon. Once purchased, I was notified a couple weeks later that Amazon could not locate the item, and that I could either continue to wait until they could locate a copy or cancel the order. I really wanted to have the guide in my possession before I started playing this game, which I bought nearly a year ago (and have been waiting patiently to play), and all of the other sellers are asking ridiculous prices for their copy, so I decided to play the waiting game.

Well, after waiting over a month for this strategy guide and no further notification concerning the availability of the guide from Amazon, and no other reasonable options from other sellers on Amazon, I decided to look elsewhere for the guide. Luckily, the local Game Stop had a copy for $20, so I bought that one and canceled my Amazon order. A $6 convenience fee is reasonable to me since I have no idea when Amazon would ever fulfill their end of the deal ... hell, for all I know, I could be waiting for this book until Christmas.

So, all in all, this is a great guide to own if you like to have the strategy guides for a long RPG experience, but DO NOT GET SUCKERED IN TO THE HIGH PRICES offered by Amazon's sellers. Do yourself a huge favor and go to Game Stop's website, look up the item and check its availability in your area. The book retails for $19.99 or less (if you can find a used copy) and the book is definitely not worth the $40 plus that these jerks are asking for it.

Expensive due to being out of print, but at least I could find it 27 Jun. 2011
By Patrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of those things I wish I bought a year ago when they were plentiful and prices were normal. The book is well written and covers everything in the game very well with lots of pictures to enjoy, so if you're a Star Ocean fan and want to get everything in the game and all the post-game goodies, this guide is a nice thing to pick up.

This guide is very helpful - and it does provide everything you'll need for it. Be glad this was released due to the lack of guides for PORTED games that are out now. BUY.
