Your a little boy who is looking to be the captain of a ship. You have a older brother who is captain and gets lost in outer space when warping through the space and time continuem. You try and find your brother whilst facing other dangers that you come across in your path. I havent completed the game but im addicted.
The reason I bought this game was because the best RPG creators created it and i heard the battle system was different in a good way. So far i am enjoying the battle system and i have never got tired of it so leveling up is really enjoyable. The storyline is really easy to understand and come by, if you completely forget where to go next you can look up the synopsis.
I am enjoying the dialogue of each of the characters. None of them are ennoying in anyway, instead they are incredibly funny. I have played alot of RPG games from the best to the worst and i think that this is up with the best. The first couple of hours can get a bit boring until you get into the action.
Unlike some RPGs you can pick the difficulty from easy, normal, hard or extreme but you have to unlock hard and extreme by completing the game. Increasing your symbology (MAGIC) and skills hasnt been made easier. Every fight you do gets you individual xp and party xp this is what you use to level your skills.
This is like the length of final fantasy IX on PS2 (15 hours or more on each disk). The graphics are not that bad but the cut scenes can take along time. There are side quests that you can do not just the storyline. Unlike some RPGs where you spend most of your time doing the minimum amount of battling you have to do where as its completely the opposite with star ocean. I spend as much time as i can whilst enjoying the experience.
You wont be dissapointed with the amount of money you have to spend on this game. This is definately a game that can take alot of time to complete whilst waiting for all the other superb games announced on E3 to come out in November.
