Annoying characters and story, but quite fun nonetheless,
This review is from: Star Ocean: The Last Hope (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
This is the first Star Ocean game I've played, and although it's a fun game, the story and the characters have been a disappointment for me so far.
The graphics are very good, and the game in general is very pretty. Cut scenes can be quite long, but that doesn't bother me much usually, except I found the characters extremely annoying (and very unoriginal) and the writing is painfully bad at times. However, it is good for a laugh if you're playing it with other people around who know the RPG stereotypes and can laugh at them. People who aren't acquainted with games like this will find parts of this one a bit odd (e.g. my mum; she was very alarmed when a female character with an unfeasibly large chest and very little costume appeared until I explained characters like that are pretty much par for the course).
Overall: pretty good fun but don't expect anything original.

Your mum found the unfeasibly large-chested female character alarming? Oh no! I just ordered this game so what's my 14-year-old daughter going to think!? She's already had a go at me for getting married in Fable 2. Useful to be forewarned. Thanks for the review!
