[JRPG Review Revisited] Star Ocean: The Last Hope International


Star Ocean: The Last Hope is a very good RPG in the Star Ocean franchise, a sci-fi series that is set in the far future. In this game, which is in fact a prequel to the 3 other Star Ocean games, your quest will be to find a new home for the residents of Earth, in the aftermath of WWIII that left our planet as an hostile environment.

I’m revisiting this review today because this is one of the RPGs I loved from my PS3 library. I purchased it as soon as it was released and played it through twice, and I would definitely replay this RPG gem!

You can read the original review right here.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope’s campaign spans over 40 hours of gameplay, and you’ll visit a lot of completely different environment as your crew searches for a new planet to call home. I loved the soundtrack, the battle system and the environments! The only issue I had with this game was how the Save Points were waaaaay too far apart. All in all, you really should give this game a try if you’re into space exploration and RPGs!

    I loved the second story on PSP (which I played a few years ago), but didn’t like the third one very much. I LOVED this one (the fourth), and still recommend it to every JRPG gamer looking for a good game!

    i beat this game during the summer. i really liked the combat, but man those characters were ugly looking and annoying. Still it was pretty fun and the robot guy was so OP
