Star Ocean: The Last Hope International won't make occasional RPG dabblers dump Final Fantasy or Fallout 3, but for fans of the genre, it's a worthy addition to your library. Everything about the game feels massive, from the story to the exploration to the combat. It all has a fantastic sense of scope to it that really makes you feel like you are part of this universe-sized adventure.
There are tons of places to go, people to meet, things to build, enemies to kill, skills to learn, sights to see, all in addition to smooth and satisfying combat. Even if you aren't a fan of the genre, you owe it to yourself to check it out. You won't be disappointed.
