RPGamer: Star Ocean: The Last Hope Review

RPGamer writes: " Star Ocean: The Last Hope's drawing power is really its battle system and little else. Despite a solid plot and strong item creation, the shoddy localization and terrible level design mar the experience beyond salvaging. The game's saving grace is the fact that cutscenes can be skipped, the process of which is followed by a brief text summary of what occurred, meaning that players who get fed up with the length or quality can simply skip through and get back to the gameplay. The Last Hope should take most players roughly forty hours to complete, but keep in mind that a significant portion of that is spent watching cutscenes. Skipping those, the game is likely completable in less than thirty. It's sad to see tri-Ace dropping the ball so horribly with this console generation, first with Infinite Undiscovery and now with Star Ocean: The Last Hope. If The Last Hope was theirs, the company may be in trouble. This reviewer, at least, will be looking at their future games a bit more cautiously".

Thats sad,, im looking for a good reason to buy this game. All I hear from these noob sites like Gameinformer the like is that the gameplay is great. I hate action rpgs, besides morrowind, oblivion, and fallout. Those 3 games show exactly how action rpgs should be done. I dont care if it has great graphics or not. My favorite rpgs are on the NES.

F them I am picking it up on Tuesday and you should do the same if you are REALLY interested in it, if you let these people hold you back then it won't ever end, games you look forward to will be reviewed badly sometimes and then you will have nothing to look forward to because some turd expected the world and all they got was a damn video game, I say rent it at the very least.

I am buying, I don't rent, I go all the way, like a drunk prom date on her period.

When it comes to RPGs I tend to trust RPGamer more than other sites. But damn 2.5/5? That seems extremely low, I will be getting the game when it release in EU, but I was hoping for a great quality game, guess it will only be OK again.

because so many ps3 gamers (myself included) have seriously enjoyed the F out of Killzone 2, despite the delusional rantings of idiot fanboys like you who instantly tried to discredit any and all AAA reviews Killzone 2 received, which we all know it has received plenty of them.

"PS: I never heard of RPGamer"

Most of you would have said the same thing about Edge Magazine, if it weren't for the ridiculous review score it gave of Killzone 2. With that low score though, idiot fanboys like you praised and defended Edge like it has the definitive say in the gaming industry.
