Star Ocean was a tedious and linear RPG. 0

This is my first Star Ocean game, not exactly a good start with the series I guess. This game was a very tedious and linear experience. A few things that bugged me was the poor controls. While Star Ocean is similar to a modern Tales of.. game, it just isn't as user friendly as one. You can switch between the characters on the fly in battle, but you have to make sure the character you are changing from is turned on "Auto" or else he will just stand there. Targeting is very difficult too, for exam...

It doesn't take any risks... (story aside) 0

But it does what it does right. GameplayThe gameplay is interestingly complex, while at the same time being easily accesible. The combat takes place in real-time, and there are no random encounters.

Its presentation and VA lag behind even early cycle entry FFX, while the story driven space opera narrative doesn't hack it with Xenosaga.The story was interesting at times, but overal...

Star Ocean: Till the end of time 0

Star ocean started with a great opening cut scene but then things started to get worse, the most annoying thing seemed to be the little amount of time you actually get to play the game after being constantly interrupted by really slow and unnecessary dialogue, the in game graphics seemed ok but nothing special and everything seemed to be playing out inside a space station or ship with all gloomy, grey walled rooms. however the more i started to play, the more i started to really enjoy it. the gr...

Few games emphasize the "G" in RPG. 0

NOTE: This review was written by me years ago, but it's never been posted on GB, so enjoy!***************Star Ocean: Till the End of Time (SO3 hereafter) is the third game in tri-Ace’s flagship series. tri-Ace (yes, the “t” is lowercase) is a relatively unknown developer, but with four games under their belt (Star Ocean: the Second Story, Valkyrie Profile, Star Ocean: Blue Sphere, and now SO3), they are making quite a name for themselves. The RPGs they have introduced to the genre thus far have ...
