Star Ocean: The Last Hope; This year's overlooked RPG?

Gamer Limit writes "As spring begins to rear its beautiful, beautiful head, a new string of games prepares themselves for release towards the final half of the first quarter. With releases like Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil 5, Halo Wars, and Guitar Hero: Metallica, many titles will inevitably be overlooked. Titles that will offer closure; that will offer innovation; that will not be the afterbirth of Age of Empires (yes, I'm talking to you Halo Wars).

Fear not though, my young gaming padawans, for I am your guide amongst these highly anticipated beasts, and promise you will not get lost in the fray, nor will you be consumed by the hype being vomited out faster than Lindsay Lohan can binge and purge her last supper."

I definitely plan to give this a go

Yeah me too, hopefully Square Enix finally has made a proper next-gen RPG for the 360 (cos The Last Remnant is not very good, even though i completed the game)

CryofSilence3398d ago

It's Tri-Ace who made this one (owned by Square Enix), so it should be good since they made all of the other ones.

Funny,the one game that has the most attention from the gaming press and gamers right now is the exact game you chose not to mention.

If Star Ocean is half as good as Killzone 2,I'll try it.

Seriously, you are comparing a JRPG to a FPS....

KZ2 may be overlooked.

Big names like Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Halo, and Guitar Hero can cause anyone to overlook an exclusive that hasn't been marketed and is only exclusive to 1 platform.

Only us net users are in the know of KZ2 and truthfully not alot of people even know of the game including all of my co workers and classmates.

KZ2 is sort of like a new IP if you think about how it's previous games weren't smash hits. Unlike Resident Evil and Street Fighter it's going to take more than followers of the series for KZ2 to succeed.

Sony needs to market.

Seriously, I am so tired of hearing fanboys ramble on about Killzone.

Killzone is not everyone's cup of tea, so it's good if your getting a game that you like, but don't expect the entire world to stand next to you waving pompoms. I'll take Star Ocean and Resident Evil over Killzone, thank you very much.

Hmm, how dare you man.
