Ive never played a star ocean game before, and I usualy prefer the turn based combat RPG's. But with a lack of turn based RPG's in recent history i throught id give this game a try.
20 odd hours in and im enjoying it. Its not perfect, but its definatly entertaining. The graphics are something to marvel at. Its a real treat for any RPG gamer who has been gaming since before PS1 days, and literaly do drop you jaw at times. The the battle gameplay is fun, sometimes frustrating, but hasnt stopped me from progressing the story as of yet. Gameplay in terms of explring towns, talking to people is spot on. Its what youd expect, some people just have a simple sentace to say to you regarding something thats happening in their lives, others wil give you a quest to help them with something etc etc, its what you expect, but coupled with the nice look of this game makes it entertaining.
There have been a few things i wasnt too happy with, its not always informative enough on what you should do next. A few times i found myself just ploughing on through somewhere, not entirely sure if it was where i was supposed to be going. One time i was stuck in an area, and only after speaking to a person id spoken to 3 times allready (and they just said the same thing) they triggered a scene that let me proress. apart from that and the occasinal annoyance of battle, its a game worth playing!
