"Still, outside of my few gripes, I really did enjoy playing Star Ocean: The Last Hope. I've never been a diehard fan of the series, and while I did get most of the story revelations shown here, nothing really stood out to me as amazing. The reason I really enjoyed this title was simply because the combat was actually fun to play, and I thought the crafting system was easy to understand but still provided quite a bit of depth. There's a ton of stuff you can make within the game, and a lot of special items and weapons to uncover if you want to put the time into it. Also, the game seems to be tailor-made for multiple plays, so it's definitely something I can see myself going back to for another high-level run or two. Definitely worth checking out, and Tri-Ace's best effort on current gen systems so far."
