The game has some stellar visuals, awesome animated cut-scenes and a lengthy, well-told story behind it. The story is a little slow to start with, but becomes increasingly captivating as players explore new worlds, recruit additional comrades and further unravel the nuances of the tale. Players who like a little bit of substance and character building in their RPGs will love Star Ocean, the game is jam-packed full of storytelling goodness.
