1UP: Star Ocean: First Departure Hands On Preview

1UP writes: "Japanese role-playing games tend to run on the fumes of good ideas from a decade ago, typically rehashing timeworn concepts to the point where they cease to be formulaic so much as simply "the way things are done." Needless to say, it's pretty rare for a JRPG to catch me off-guard with a plot twist these days, let alone genuinely surprise me. But Star Ocean: First Departure pulled it off, and in less than an hour of playtime at that".
