Wish they had released this on PS3 in US.  Great deal for series fans.


Activision can suck a dik.

I was reading some reviews of this game last night, and I'm not sure series fans are the ones who want it.

Couldn't get into it the 3 times I tried. Gameplay is super lacking.

Is gameplay similar to the last hope?

I like the series but think this did get pretty horrendous reviews -- even from fans.

Thank you, I needed this to convince me not to buy this despite the price.

Good, I wanted to like it so bad, but it just wasn't good.  So many other games out that are better.

Star Ocean should have died with the last game, which was aptly titled the "last hope."  Wasn't it titled that way because it was supposed to be the last one in the series?  

 

Anyways, I think Last Hope was the final Star Ocean game to be developed by the original group, Tri-Ace.  After that game, Tri-Ace was disbanded and this one was helmed by other developers.

 

Doesn't surprise me that it's bad.  Frankly, SO is basically today's Wild Arms -- a series that might as well just close shop.  The game mechanics are antiquated; the animation/characters are poorly developed, and the writing is god-awful and amateurish.

 

With so many good to great games nowadays (and so little free time among older gamers), this sort of mediocrity is harder to support.  We already have Tales to fill that spot, and I'm not sure there's anything unique about SO anymore that can't be filled in by games published by NIS and Atlus.

Going by what I am reading here I'll pass even at that price. I've been trying to find a great rpg, sadly I think I'm hampered by fuzzy memories of phantasy star 2 and final Fantasy 3 and earthbound as a kid.

Have been wanting this one for a while but since Persona 5 is coming out in a couple of weeks, I'm going to have to skip.

There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

Really want to want this one. Reviews just rip it apart in so many ways, but if it had been this price 6 months ago I still would hace tried it. No way to justify wasting time on it now with so much gold having just relased or about to release.

I'm tempted at this price, but I know I'll regret it if it hits $10 in a few months.

Tempted to buy both this and the Suicide Squad steelbook for $15...  but they I remembered they're both horrible pieces of "entertainment", and after working my way though SO4, I'd rather spend those 40 hours working.

Savage.

Sigh.. now I wish I hadn't jumped on this for $22. Doesn't sound like it's worth it. But for about $15 I'd have given it a shot.

Yeah think I will wait a bit longer myself after looking at my backlog and games coming out soon. Can't justify it

Thanks for the info. Neither store near me had any, unfortunately, so I ended up purchasing it at Best Buy. Now hopefully they'll send one that's not loose in the case like so many PS4 games they sell. I assume this will hit $10 at Sqenix store sometime this year, but their shipping charge might offset the deal.

It's a scam there are multiple just launched sellers with thousands of $6 games. They are all basically fishing for user information and then disappearing.

Yup and they usually request that you contact them first before you place an order.

The movie should have just been named "Deadshot". I know Will Smith is supposedly a big deal, but they focused WAY too much on him. Sorta the same thing with the past couple X-Men movies having focused way too much on Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique (who I don't think anybody gives a damn about in the comics). In both cases it has it caused the movies to be less than they could have been.

Thanks for telling me that, figured much. Thought amazon would of gotten rid of them.
