I've been a star ocean fan since ps1 and I have to say that you should ignore what everyone says about it and give it a shot... I really enjoyed it, was fun to play and (most of) the characters are interesting, I wouldn't go into the game with a trophy hunter mindset because that's a sure fire way to eliminate any fun you may have... and other than a few terrible (my opinion) voice actors, not script really, the game was involving (with the star ocean standard insanity I'm sure your aware of)


long story short, give it a shot

Yeah, I don't get the complaints from the series fans. The characters and stories were never very good(except for 3, screw the haters), and the voice acting from the first two were far worse than 4.

I can see how someone who hadn't played the first few games wouldn't like it, I'm just wondering where the fans got the standards(speaking as a fan).

Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

You might be better off, being a fan if anything will make you hate the game more, the gameplay and very disappointing customization is so bad you hate it that SO could have fallen so far. One of the key points in enjoying the game is the gameplay but as a fan you've been spoiled with better offerings.

i enjoyed it for what it was, it had some neat concepts like boss weak points and whatnot, but that didn't show up too often throughout the game. The arena in the game(which shows up at about halfway through the game) is done extremely well and is really hard to finish

I got my 30-100 hours out of the game as I actually bothered to play the game past the first planet where it picks up.

I don't believe in this "you aren't a star ocean fan if you have played this game", case in point, I believe if you are a fan of the series you should play it, to make the decision for yourself if you like it or not, and the game is probably something like 15 dollars now compared to its 50 dollar release tag.
