I can Honestly say, this was one of the more terrible Rpgs I've played. Worth $10-$15 at most Imo.

It's SO5 technically, to prevent confusion.

Star Ocean 4 is the one on 360/PS3 - as already stated, this is the fifth game. I like to pretend the series died after the third one, though.

i dont think you have to pretend, the name of the game goes on but the soul is long dead

I'm waiting for it to drop last time it dropped to the 16s then shot up back to 49.99

I've read a lot of negative feedback about the game and it's making me hold out for $10-15.  It was downhill for me since the ps1, but I did like the ps3/360 game.  Is this one worse than that?

I liked this game, but $20 would be a fair price for me. They stripped down Star Ocean even more for this iteration. Pretty game with the exception of the one woman character that's wearing a very revealing outfit.

If you're not very tolerant of mediocre RPGs, I would keep waiting. Otherwise, I would say this is a fair deal :)

I've been watching it drop pennies on the hour recently. Wait on it to hit $15 so I can get it first

So we all agree that Second Story was the apex of the series, right? Top five games of all time for me.

You're being way too generous to this game.

60 cents or 60 dollars a piece of shit waste of time is a piece of shit waste of time.


Never stop making them pay.

Is it still barf-inducing? That camera was nuts.

Yes, they never fixed the camera jitter when running, at least to my knowledge. Hard to believe that made it through QA and hasn't been fixed.

Without a doubt, SS is / was the apex of the series. Not in my top five, but I can definitely say it was the RPG that took up more of my time on the PS1 than any other.

Have to disagree and go with SO3 here. Battle system was much more robust and I liked the world/characters/story better. SO2 did have a fun affinity system, but aside from that I don't remember much about it.


I'm not just a gamer, I'm a writer, too--check out my story "Worried About" if you're into Stephen King style horror.

SO5 is a perfectly fine JRPG if you like JRPGs.  JRGPs just don't receive good metacritic scores these days.  There were only two games on the PS4 that I would consider traditional JRPGs that scored over a 75 last year (edit: 2013-2015 weren't any better), and those were the two Final Fantasy games, which also didn't score all that high (77 and 82).  The story in SO5 probably isn't the greatest, but if you play JRPGs because you actually like the mechanics of JRPGs, it's hard to find half a dozen JRPGs released for the PS4 last year that were better.

I love JRPGS. Don't regret buying the CE at all. Normally I sell something in the CEs to get a little money back and did so with the art cards. Steelbook/box is one of my favorites. I've heard all the negatives and I'm waiting till I can play SAO 3 and 4 first.

I noticed this doesn't have exclusively to Sony/Console only. I'm either waiting for a either steeper drop to $10/$15 or not getting it at this rate if a PC port is inevitable.

agree, fine if you like playing jrpg's as most dont come over here, couldn't stomach a new game plus since you couldn't skip the scenes to speed up game play, visually great but alot of annoyances so picked it up when it was 28.00, only other jrpg's i am trying to get into is going back to sao since they should be pushing an update soon but even that is tuff to get into

Bought the limited edition from the U.K. On release week and never opened it. Just decided to sell it on eBay and sold it for $50

Honestly surprised Squenix even made another Star Ocean game -- wasn't the last one touted as the final game in this franchise?  Isn't that why they called it the Last Hope?  

 

Anyways, the Star Ocean series has long overstayed their welcome.  The last *decent* one was the PS2 game, and even that one started to drag.  

 

This one is like Sony's Wild Arms -- just retire it already and move onto something else.

Last Hope as in Last Hope for the franchise to continue.

 

And I disagree that SO4 was bad. I really don't see what the problem people had with it was. It's a well made game and I had a good time with it.


you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.
