All-in-all, Star Ocean: The Last Hope is a tri-Ace title. It's amazingly fun and amazingly flawed in many ways. Just about every system in the game is breakable, but that's a tri-Ace hallmark. It's a game that most RPG fans will find to be a worthy purchase, but don't expect a world-class game out of it. As long as players are willing to find that mute button on their remote and can stand up to an overly-sappy story, there's no reason not to pick up Star Ocean: The Last Hope.
