TGR: Star Ocean: The Last Hope Review

Everyone's got their little idiosyncratic loves in life – those little things they just love despite every reason they shouldn't. For instance, I absolutely love gas station food. Pre-packaged sandwiches, beef jerky, hot dogs on those little rollers that have been there for hours; don't ask me why, I couldn't explain it to you. I'm sure you have something similar, so keep that in mind when thinking about Star Ocean: The Last Hope. The latest entry in the Star Ocean series from Japanese developer tri-Ace is horrendously stale, dated, and cliché to the point of absurdity. There's a million reasons why this game should be boring and completely unremarkable, but for some reason the game is so damn charming that players who are able to look past all its shortcomings will have a great time.

Can i ask why? The majority of the reviews are pretty good and the average score is 8.0

Don't be so dramatic..this is only 1 review...bigger sites like IGN rated the game above 8

I would like to play this game, but I have to admit I have no clue what gameplay is like. I just like the graphics lol. Very pretty

ViceKingz4275d ago

II Necroplasm II4275d ago (Edited 4275d ago )

It's a JRPG. What high scores you expect most reviewers to give it?

Poor troll.

Why not check out Final Fantasy 7,8,9,10 and 12? DQVIII? KH1&2? Suikoden, Chrono Cross etc etc.

italianbreadman4275d ago

Me too. Star Ocean: The Second Story

Power_Of_Flops_4275d ago

Flop again.

But the title is misleading, it probably won't be the last flop for the 360.

Back to Killzone 2 (best fps ever... only on PS3)

And you wonder why xbox fans come into PS3 threads and troll??

STFU, if trolls like you stop, maybe xbox fans might stop

Microsoft Xbox 3604275d ago (Edited 4275d ago )

Flop no doubt.

Another franchise ruined by the 360.

Well I have the game and I think this guy just doesn't like RPG's. I'm 25 hours in, sure it has some down sides, bad voice acting is one of them but overall it's a fun game. It's better then 6.5, the gameplay alone merits a higher score.
