Star Ocean: The Last Hope is a top 5 PS3 JRPG

#1OnDiscDLCPosted 12/30/2012 10:51:38 AM
It's up there with Valkyria Chronicles, Dark Souls, Tales of Graces f, and Nier. Sure the story isn't the greatest, but it's still enjoyable. And the characters are all memorable(except that soulless shell of a human also known as Lymle). But the gameplay is why it's one of the best. And the soundtrack is beautifully composed. Fits well with each planet you visit. Speaking of planets, they are just BREATHTAKING. The graphics overall are some of the best this generation. Any JRPG fan must check out this underrated gem ASAP. It can be hard to find it in store, but you can get it online for under $30(I got my copy off Amazon for $30 a few years ago, so it may be $20 now).

Not since people started claiming Justin Beiber has talent has someone been so completely WRONG.

Really? I felt Faize and Lymle were the stars of SO4. Her story was great and I've never seen another character just like her.
I love it too in a different way I guess.

You are wrong again for thinking you aren't wrong.

Both of their stories were well done (and sad),but after what happened on Lymles home planet, she was kind of annoying.

I guess I'm not as critical on people that have suffered heavy mental/physical trauma.

I have never played SO2 so I can't judge it, but put SO4 on top of your PS3 games to play list.
