So I recently purchased the latest installment of the "Star Ocean" series and believe you me was I impressed. I am an old school player of the SO Series dating back to 1999 when SO: The Second Story came out for the Playstation. "The Last Hope" which is the newest release will keep you on your toes that's for sure. The plot of the game is what you would expect from the series, not too much and not too little. Combat in the game is frantic and will certainly keep you on your heels, although at times it does seem bland and mundane. The graphics are somewhat pristine depending on how you look at it, weapon models change when you acquire a new one but sadly not with armor. For some this may not bother you, but for myself it's just vexatious. If you can look past the bad voice acting and armor models issue I think this game will be perfect for you. The combat system alone gives you the ability to put Hack and Slash and Strategy into dungeon crawling which is what attracted me right away. So for my final opinion, even though this game has been out for some time now. If you have not been able to try it out I without question urge you to. The game itself is more of a "Buy" rather than a rent in my opinion, the game has about 80 hours of gameplay depending on how much of a life you have, lol. So I hope this little review was of some help to a few of you. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.
