'Star Ocean: The Last Hope International' game logo

The year is A.D. 2087. In the aftermath of World War III, Earth has been ravaged and the population decimated by a deteriorating environment. The countries that survived have joined together to form the Greater Unified Nations and turned their eyes skyward...to space.

Edge Maverick and his childhood friend Reimi Saionji are chosen as pioneer members of the Space Reconnaissance Force, which was created to seek out new worlds beyond the stars. Their ship, the Calnus, takes its place on the lunar launch pad along with four other starships of the first reconnaissance fleet. These ships — humanity’s last hope — blast off one-by-one and sail into the awaiting wormhole that leads to the vast star ocean.

And so, Edge and his crew begin their voyage in search of a new haven for humanity...and a second chance.

I was about a year late to the party with this one. I had just finished clearing Final Fantasy XIII and was looking for another RPG to sink some time into. I read some good things about this and decided to give it a go. Aside from the awesome intro movie, it started out slow, but after a few hours I really started to enjoy myself. This is classic JRPG style with "next gen" polish. If you like exploring maps, bumping into an enemy and it cuts to a fight - this is definitely for you. Not only that, the fights are very hands-on. You can switch between characters while you fight, using their skills as appropriate for the situation, and the AI will back you up with your other guys (and you can configure how they will battle from one of several AI settings). So far - and I almost unlocked all the characters now - there's been very little to slow the pace. There are TONS of side quests and trophies to unlock. The characters are cute and nice to look at. There's a good variety of enemies - you won't see the same kind for very long. You can level up your abilities and battle skills, find and equip any number of awesome weapons, armor and accessories. There's chests to loot (don't miss picking up the Treasure Sense ability!), decent cut-scenes, and I'm always looking forward to see what happens next. The International version comes with both English and Japanese voice.. I'm playing through with Japanese and subtitles for my first run to get a solid feel for the characters, and then I'll play on a harder difficulty with English. This will surely become one of your favorite JRPGs in the collection. Highly recommended.

Most games nowadays have the notion of just trying to look pretty and leave the gameplay behind (FFXIII anyone?). Not this game. If you enjoyed older Star Ocean games like Till the End of Time, then you will certainly enjoy this game as well. It is basically Till the End of Time on the PS3/X360 - fun and intense combat system, comical characters and a lackluster story with its own funny moments. The game also has very good pace, slowly teaching you the basics while testing you at the same time. The user interface is also very well done. The voice acting is terrible just like the previous games, but thankfully the Japanese audio is available to bail this one out. This is the definition of a JRPG, something that next-gen consoles have been missing dearly. It has all the elements of a generic RPG - items, weapons/armors, towns, sidequests, leveling up, gain new skills, etc. Again, what makes this game very fun is its battle system. You will not find a more intense, challenging and fun combat system as this one. If you liked Star Ocean games and Final Fantasy games, give this one a try. And obviously if you're into CoD-type games or Uncharted, this is a hard knock for you, but this game is also a good choice for people interested in trying out the JRPG genre.

+ One of the best, if not the best, combat systems in RPGs
+ Incredible amount of content will make you come back for more even after beating the game
+ Japanese voice acting is great
+ The pacing is very well done
+ Some fanservice is present for those who are curious :P

- Lackluster story with some pointless dialogues
- Some characters can be annoying
- English voice acting is horrid

The game came in a thin opaque plastic. I was amazed that the game case did not have a single crack on in. I was expecting it to arrive early, but it did not, fairly because I just paid for the basic delivery.

Game
The game was very fun. For me it was like an MMO but minus the online and multiplayer aspect. The story was very good and the ending was very satisfying. There were times that I felt like watching a Japanese cartoon/anime from playing.
The characters were very lovable and have broad personalities.
The gameplay was quite challenging and fun. There were times that it felt very repetitive but the variety of opponents and their difficulty made it very enjoyable. The Maps of each location is fairly large, and some puzzles, dungeons or locations are quite hard to finish, especially when you don't have that much knowledge about RPGs. Some locations require the character to move quite a long distance to advance the story, and travelling in the game is the only thing I thought was the most challenging part of it.
The graphics is what you expect from a 2008-2010 game on the PS3. The only character that made me question if I liked the graphics of the game was Welch. Welch was the only one that looked special, very special. All other characters and locations looked good and did not look like Welch.

If you are looking for an MMO without the Multiplayer and Online aspects, then this is the game for you. The story was worth enough playing for. And if you are wondering if this is the typical fan service game for horny teenagers then you are wrong.

it has it's flaws, but if you've ever enjoyed a tales game, this is a absolute MUST BUY.

There are some incredibly annoying systems that you're entirely free to skip. IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU DON'T TRY TO 100% everything. Seriously. I was enjoying the S*** out of this game, until i started trying to 100% everything.
I was practically glued to my TV because of this game... Until i tried to 100%.

Seriously. Don't. Ruin. The. Experience.

my only gripe about the character interaction system is that the romances are, at best, left to the imagination.
