Current Mood:En forme emoticon En forme

A new episode of the Star Ocean saga, with the usual recipes and quests…

Graphics
Waaaaooow 😛 Well, more seriously, with a HD tv, the images of Earth and of the planet created for the game, you would think those are photos. Still with a manga/drawing side rather present (and some fanservice, too).

Grade: 9 / 10

Music
Despite using the Star Ocean themes in its own way, the sound track is nothing special. But still nice.
Grade: 7.5 / 10

Gameplay
The manipulation outside combat is really easy, in combat it is a bit more difficult, especially since the AI of some characters is… (casting fire on a fire elemental ? Yeaaaah -_-). The recipes system is still simple as always. Only problem, you cannot pause the videos, only pass them and get a summary.

Grade: 8 / 10

Length / Sidequests
No problem on this side, with all the “quests” and the recipes and the things to do in combat and all. The main plot is not very long, but you have to take in account that this game is (from the start) supposed to be played several times.
Grade: 8 / 10

Story / characters
Nothing terribly original, the earth was tremendously hurt, so you have to go in space. Some ideas taken backwards or differently inside the game, but I will not say what so as not to spoil it. The characters seem to me largely more elaborate than in a majority of rpg in their personal story / background.

Grade: 8 / 10

In the end…
A good rpg in the line of the Star Ocean (yes, the bunny is present). Do not hesitate…
Final grade: 8.1 / 10
