Star Ocean : The Last Hope – Gameplay Reviews
Star Ocean: The Last Hope is a role-playing game with real-time combo-based combat. Ten years ago, that would have been a huge badge of honor. These days, real-time combat in an RPG is pretty old-hat. And to be fair, the way in which The Last Hope implements the combat system is fairly archaic in its own right. When you run across the field, you encounter monsters. Once you encounter monsters, you leave the field and transition to a special combat-arena: a small enclosed space (generally only one per area). After you load the fight, the game’s camera will zoom in on each enemy individually. Ostensibly this would happen to alert the player to the type of enemies he or she will be fighting, so the player can plan accordingly… only there’s really not a lot of room to plan in an action-RPG. Frequently, you will be spending more time waiting for combat-areas to load and the camera to display each enemy than you will actually fighting those enemies. And once you win, you must endure the typical post-victory fanfare—all of which consumes just a little bit more time than it ought to, and quickly becomes no more than an annoyance.

The combat itself is fast-paced and fun, though there are a few things I didn’t care for with the basic mechanics and controls. Fortunately, all of the buttons can be assigned to different commands, so most issues are easy to resolve. You can directly control any of the party-members, almost all of which are fun (and effective) to use, and can switch between them mid-battle with ease. Combos can be built up with normal attacks, special attacks and various symbolic (read: magic) techniques, and can be quite rewarding depending on how much time you invest. The addition of several other elements—rush mode and and blindsiding—make combat a whole lot of fun. Though, admittedly, at the easier difficulties most battles entail little more than tapping the attack button and waiting for everything to die.

Similar to the other big science-fiction epic role-playing game on the Xbox 360, Mass Effect, The Last Hope gives the player a galaxy map and several different planets to explore. The number of locations you can visit is rather limited, though each planet has a unique “identity” to it, but each area is very large with tons of areas to explore–and rest assured, you will be revisiting planets plenty of times, finding new treasures and toppling new foes.

Rating: 18/20

STAR OCEAN: THE LAST HOPE continues the franchise’s soaring space opera, blending science fiction with fantasy for a unique RPG experience. The refined gameplay features four party members and team-oriented combat, while maintaining the innovative real-time battle system that has become a trademark of the STAR OCEAN franchise. The year is S.D. 10. In the aftermath of World War III, humanity voyages into the stars in search of a new home – and a second chance. A prequel that combines sci-fi and fantasy elements, spanning multiple planets and the vastness of space itself to recount the origins of the STAR OCEAN universe. Exhilarating combat expands upon the franchise’s famous real-time battle system, including the amazing graphics and visual effects only possible on Xbox 360. Features CG movies by Visual Works, the cutting-edge studio whose previous work includes cut scenes for the acclaimed Final Fantasy RPG series.
