EDIT: It doesn't say so on the product page, but I went to the checkout screen and apparently it does ship free.

Good price. The International version (PS3) is the one to get, as the 360 version only has the English voice track... and it's kind of not-good.

Yeah I paid $19.99 for it at NewEgg a few months back, it's back up to 39.99 there now. Haven't touched it yet, trying to clear some short games from my backlog. Looking forward to it though. Haven't played a JRPG since Eternal Sonata in 2011.

I've used them before, and wouldn't hesitate to order from them again. They supposedly just offer free shipping on select items. However, this game doesn't list free shipping on the product page, but there is no shipping charge at the checkout screen.

I liked this game a lot, however there were a lot of flaws from my perspective. I hated that there was so much missable stuff in the game. Whether or not you got everyone's endings required painstaking planning with little room for error. I also despised the trophies. Well a lot of them. Some of them were ridiculous like "deal exactly 23456 damage with a single attack" or "kill 3000 enemies with this character" or deal the killing blow to the optional superboss with the weakest playable character. But it was a good solid game with a decent story and mostly enjoyable gameplay.

I get a $2 shipping for this game (also got Fist of the Northstar: Ken's Rage (ps3) which upped it to $7 total shipping). Weird that others got it for free. Maybe it was a glitch or something. Ah well.

Yeah, that's the only payment option they accept.

That's odd, maybe it depends on where you live? No idea why it would be an extra $5 to add one game to the order either. If you decide to just go with Star Ocean though, $18.99 shipped is still a good price.

Didn't even think to check Amazon, when I had it on my wish list it was still $40. Thanks for pointing that out.

This is a good description of the game.

http://www.whysohost...s.php?P=623&F=1

I've been playing JRPG's since they were first created as a genre and have probably played more than 99% of gamers. This game is NOT a good JRPG. It's below average at best. You'd be better off replaying Xenosaga for a sci-fi space travel JRPG. That game is a gift from god compared to SO4.

The game has its flaws, but it's a long adventure that should appease RPG fanatics. I still think the battle system is among the best of any RPG I've played. As someone said earlier, some of the trophies are ridiculous, but there are plenty of free guides available to make the process less painful if that's your type of deal.

At this price, I'd recommend this to someone who might be interested. This is easily the one to get as you don't the Japanese voice track on the 360 version and that alone made me quit playing that version. The game has its other flaws but it's a decent RPG and it'll last you quite awhile. But it won't change your mind if you don't already like JRPGs.

I'm working on this game right now, and I'm near the end. Not sure what the haters are talking about, it's been well worth the time I've put in it. Is it something I'll platinum or do much trophy-chase on? No. But that's not why I play games anyway.

Pick it up. At $.33/hr., there's really little to complain about.

Many people that enjoy JRPG's line myself don't like it. There's something different about the generation of gamers that didnt find out about JRPG's until the PS2. I don't know if you're in that category or not but I've noticed a trend that they tend to defend all JRPG's.
