Review by Psycho Penguin
"Great start for what i hope will become a great series"
Star Ocean is a perfect game for those who don't like RPGs because they are "boring". i can tell you that you probably won't be bored because it has a great storyline and the battle sytem is real time, with no menus. Too bad you'll have to import it to play it...
Cool graphics. First off, the character designs are briliant and rival Final Fantasy's. Secondly, the enemies are also well designed. Also, the backgrounds and menus are well done and perfectly designed. GREAT graphics and some of the best on the Super Famicom.
What else can i say? Perfect control and the batle screens are real time so you don't have to navigate through menus.
The gameplay is fantastic as well, with great characters, lots of modes, and the battle system is great for those who don' like menus. Yep, the battles are done in real time. If you need to use an item or magic, you can pull up a ring menu, just like Secret of Mana. great gameplay.
FUN FACTOR 10/10
trust me, you can't go wrong with Star Ocean!
