Can this 360 exclusive help the series achieve star status?
i have no interest in this game for some reason, it just looks meh to me. I'd rather wait for Mass Effect 2 than be handed this game for free.
wat a wanna be gamer then, this game is awesome, idiots who pass it up will just miss out. why cant u play this then mass effect? w/e im luvin it
I know I'd get in trouble for this, still... According to your logic of "idiots who pass it up..." more than 90% of 360 owners are considered idiots for not buying this game, is that what you're trying to say?
ok i shud have clarified, "idiots who pass it up because they think it looks stupid or want to judge blindly will be missing out. this game in my opinion is coming close to valkyria chronicles....actually i think i like it more. ahhh well i just beat star ocean 1 last month and star ocean 2 yesterday so im updated on the background info, so i know whats going on, its pretty cool. only sad thing is it wud have sold much better if it was multi right away just cuz um star ocean 1 snes, SO2 ps1, SO3 ps2, SO1 psp, SO2 remake psp....SO4 360???? huh lol. but it will be on ps3 later, if theres enough extra stuff i will get it on that too. if new characters and such are announced. the guide tells u its timed exclusive lol, says for 360 version. so duuuh :p
That's much better. Other than Final fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Quest and Level-5's games, JRPGs doesn't usually score higher than 8, most JRPG fans would be satisfied with SO4, as for me, I "might" pass on this game, not because of the review scores though, I'm more of traditional RPG type, action RPGs doesn't interest me that much. I played SO3 from start to finish, so if no great RPGs games show up(console or handheld) until summer, I'll pick this one up. :)
u played SO3 and liked it? glad. but SO4 is atleast 3 times better, the story is so good and has alot of comedy with private actions. and the combat is the best in the series, tho i know wat u mean by wanting traditional but those arent to popular anymore, i still luv em tho *lost oddesy ar tonelico etc, but SO4 has me hooked. hope u played valkyria chronicles, such an awesome game and so unique
trust me the story is not better than Valkryia chronicles story, actually star ocean 4 has very corny dialogue that will leave like wtf are you serious. Most of the dialogue leaves you with an awkward feeling. The combat is great though. But if you go in thinking the story will be really good, you will not get what you are hoping for.
I agree also..SO normally has the some really corny story and dialogue..but we all buy it for the combat cuz it's just pure fun.. SO3 completely ruined the the Franchise for me...the story got lame half way through...thanks in part to that stupid twist...some-one watched to much Matrix while making that game.. but im gonna buy SO4 ne ways....since I am a fan of the games
Was gonna download this game to give it a try but it was 3 discs, fúck that.
lol u have no interest in this game wasn't it u saying square please port SO4 on the ps3.
No you keep it (it's coming anyway), just another medicore JRPG nothing new here... -Playing VC-
Good score,will pick this one up once it hits the bargain bin.
Cause you don't own a 360.
I was in bestbuy today and i broke down and bought this game. I planned on getting it anyway but it wasn't in my budget this period hahaha. But one look inside the game guide and i couldn't resist. It is a very solid game and I'm glad i bought it.
GT said the English voice acting is horrible. That's the problem with dvd folks, as the dev can't utilize the Japanese dub due to the lack of space. By the way, GT seems to like VC a lot more as they gave the game a 9.1 :)
OK...But..But...Gametrailer is bias ....... OT: Star Ocean is a great game. Been playing it for 2 days now. When is the next PS3 RPG going to be out????? Have fun waiting Obama.
Cross Edge is out in May 2009 in North America.
Too bad you don't have much to choose from Obama maybe you and PirateThom should check cross edge! looks real solid! Famitsu - X Edge 6/6/7/4 = 23/40 *goes back to playing Star Ocean* =)
voice r great!, sept lymle's.....robotic sounding lil girl lol otherwise they have emotion unlike most western games. i mean acting may not be as good as valkyria chronicles but still very good
Haze - 9/8/9/8 - (34/40) Lair - 9/7/8/9 - (33/40) The Last Remnant - 10/10/9/9 (38/40) Yeah, Famitsu aren't exactly reliable.... unless you think Haze, Lair and The Last Remnant are worth checking out as well.
ujum...japanese mag reviewing 2 american games...except for last remnant .. those are the only games people bring up..2 american games? that means they must suk ..and so do all of their reviews...right?? Metal Gear Solid 4- 40/40 Little Big Planet -38/40 Valkyria Chronicles-34/40 Uncharted-36/40
When it comes to jrpg, I have really high standard. I would rather have VC than all the 360 jrpg combined at this point. However, I must say I like Tales of Vesperia a lot, and can't for the ps3 version with extra content. :)
i dont understand what the problem is. shiitty voice acting has nothing to do with the dvd space, its just has to do with them and the actores they hired. it having more space wouldnt make a diffrence. even if it was in japanese voices it be worse cause youd have to read the text which is even more lame than listening to voice even if its bad.
I always find the original voice of, whether it be movies or games, better than dub. Without a doubt the Japanese voice acting of SO4 is better than its counterpart, and the only reason it is not utilized is because of the lack of storage. We all know it. Also how is reading text lame? Unless you have some sort of reading problems I don't find a problem with reading text and listening in game dialogue at the same time. It's called multi-tasking.
VC is still the best HD rpg on meta, have fun playing a mediocre rpg.... goes back to playing demon's soul and KZ2 famitsu HAZE 9/8/9/8 = 34, Star Ocean 4 9/9/8/8 = 34 hhmmm....
No it isn't ...Fable II is rated higher
he must be talking about jrpg not wrpg.
looks like someones a little butthurt about all the exclusive 360 jrpgs eh.. came in here just to flame lol
why disagreed on fact?
what Fact? ...you didn't specify Japanese or western and Fable II is a Next Gen RPG and is rated higher ..so thats why you get a disagree
are you talking about WRPG or JPRG?
okay i see your point.... i won't bother you anymore until i find the way to defeat this annoying boss on demon's soul have fun playing SO4 btw
okey =) have fun :)
DEmon Soul...LMFAO...So when is this GREAT RPG coming out in the English speaking world again??? Lost Odyssey, Tales of Vesperia, and SO4, those are some serious RPG there and is AVAILBLE for NA/EU fans to play.
import the asian version is all in english.... PS3 is region free, ring a bell?
That's a decent review and how come loads of PS3 fanboys have come just to say "our game was rated higher!". Persona 4's still the highest rated JRPG in the last 2 or 3 years. I'd recommend The Last Remnant by the way and I'd love to see what people say when it makes it way to the PS3, it will all of a sudden be a great game I reckon. I would say I hope it goes multiplatform for the benefit of the PS3 owners who are missing out but I'm not sure if you deserve it to be honest. I bet my bubbles will go down now.:(
BUBBLES DOWN BUBBLES DOWN!!! Mods, suspend him to the openzone!!! lol, jk ;)
Infesting this site. Good 360 game reviews??? NOOOOOO!!!!! It's pathetic. All these great KZ2 reviews, which, by the way, are more than justified after I played it yesterday, are simply praised and doom and gloom is spouted by the Sony fans saying 360 is about to lose. But a good JRPG (another one) that PS3 fans don't get? Time to get out the hammer and start bashing, right N4G? This game is the first truly incredible JRPG experience of the next-gen. It's got everything, and while it doesn't push the envelope, it has everything you love in JRPGs and then some. It is better than SO3 and Tales of Vesperia (I hate the GT thinks Tales is more exposed than Star Ocean, F*** they're stupid). Sony fans, blow off to some Killzone 2 review and leave a good 360 exclusive alone.
I love that when your aboard "the calnus" track and the second world that you travel to, out in the open field. I'm lever 23, 12 hrs in and just picked up Lymle.. This Game is the sh!t, Kay!!!
can't wait till it gets here.
like Final Fantast Tactics and Shining Force 1 - 3. It is a fun game but it is still a Strategy game and not a full RPG. For those that say to import, yea right try spending $80 plus with shippig and Japanese Menu, no thanks. Sony fanboys please join us and get a x360 to get your JRPG fix.
That's just stupid. FF tactic is a jrpg as much as ff12 is one, as you wouldn't rule out ff12 as a jrpg simply because it has different battle mechanics. Like I said before VC > SO4. SO4 seems to be really mediocre with score ranging from 6 to 8. The only great jrpg that the 360 has is TOV, which is coming to the ps3.
Obama your ignorance is a disgrace to your user name and avatar. Tales is not coming to the PS3, get it through that thick head. Do you have a magic crystal ball? I remember you preaching not to make predictions but here you are...........
is another FLLLLLOPP. Just like Halo wars and exclusive DLC. They tried pullin out all the guns just against one game that is killzone 2, and they failed, again.
great reason to own a 360, its the rpg heaven right now. I have been enjoying this game. Square Enix has gotten it right, but I think this is coming onto ps3 as well, there is no only on 360 on the cover or book. Be expecting this to port soon
Star Ocean games are always fun. I prefer this combat over turn based and these games always have tons of customizations that actually make you feel as though your characters are getting stronger and better. This one looks hot too.
Seems fairly decent, judging by the reviews it has received.
Looks pretty lame considering all the other quality titles out there that aren't of this gen. Honestly if you want a good quality JRPG experience just buy a PS2! Surely you all haven't played through the PS2's immense catalogue? Oh and for the record VC trounces all the games from the SO series IMO and the PS3 will be getting WKC, now that's the title to be waiting for!
