Acegamez: Star Ocean: Second Evolution Review

Acegamez: "Second Evolution is a far cry from the whole new experience that Square Enix teased its loyal base of gamers with but there's enough new about it that some new issues have cropped up. None of them are so intrusive that they should spoil anyone's enjoyment of the game though and if you can muscle past the snail's pace story and a disappointing battle system, Second Evolution is absolutely worth the not inconsiderable amount of time that you'll spend with it. It shows its age, but what of it? Only a very few games are better a decade on and this PSP reworking fixes and updates just enough of The Second Story that this classic experience is now distinctly more palatable for today's gaming public. The graphics really are much improved, even side-by-side with last year's First Departure; the interface has never been better; the sound is spot on if you've a decent pair of headphones at hand; and the production values, for a glorified port, are not to be sneezed at." (PSP, Star Ocean: Second Evolution) 8/10
