From the Manufacturer
Star Ocean overflows with action, exploration, fast-paced combat and an intricate plot, which results in an immensely deep gaming adventure. Character development is versatile and open-ended, allowing for true freedom in character growth through battle. The fully 3D battlefields allow players to move freely and control a party of three simultaneously, utilizing the advanced real-time battle system. Players can execute synchronized attacks and collaborate to unleash a deadly blow to the enemy. While moving from one section of the game to the next, fully polygonal graphics create a magnificent environment for one to explore. The multifaceted story is presented in gorgeous CG movies and event sequences. The entire experience in Star Ocean is also enhanced with Dolby Pro Logic II sound.
Set in SD 772, four hundred years since the climactic battle with the ÒTen Wise Men,Ó humans and aliens now co-exist together in both advanced and less-developed societies, as the Galaxy Federation continues to research the cosmos to gain more influence in Space. The story begins as Star OceanÕs protagonist, Fayt Leingod, brings his family and childhood friend, Sophia Esteed, to the Federation-managed resort planet Hyda for a vacation, but the dreamy holiday is abruptly ended when Hyda is attacked by an unknown space military. In the heat of the attack, Fayt is separated from his family and Sophia, and he begins an emotional quest into the unknown to find his loved ones. Along his journey, he gets caught up in the war of an uncharted planet, but in the end, he learns the terrible untold secret about the world and himself.

Don't get me wrong--the game is a lot of fun. Your characters learn a lot of powerful and fun techniques as they level up, and in my opinion the things some of the monsters say are funny.
As the game proceeded though, I found myself forgetting what the original plot was all about because the subplot on the Medieval-type world took such a long time to develop, until the unknown beings that first attacked Fayt's world suddenly attacked the new world. Then Fayt and his friends, some old, some new, go to investigate why they're being attacked. I won't give these details away too much, but the game for me took a tiny bit of a downturn at this point. The bosses suddenly seem to get a lot harder, more annoying, and more plentiful. There is a fun place to level up at this point though (in the form of an arena), and if you fail it's not an automatic game over, which is nice.
One last thing: the final boss is PHENOMENALLY HARD!!! He has like 3 forms and all told, over a million hp with an attack or two that hits almost the whole screen. I've beaten it, and the ending is fun to watch; but it was all luck--my other characters were all dead except Fayt and I had no healing items or magic left. But--this game is fun. And so I do recommend it.
Havn't played the others in the Star Ocean series? NO WORRIES! It can stand alone, no previous gameplay required. Its set way in the future (from "the second story")
Sometimes the dialouge can become tedious, but HUZZAH! THERE IS A FUNCTION TO SKIP THROUGH ALL THE LONG VIDEO CLIP STYLE PRIVATE FUNCTIONS!!!!
Save points can be few and far between, but that seems standard with the Star Ocean series and wasn't much of a problem to keep track of after you find em the first time (thanks to the handy map function)
A great game with beautiful graphics (same style as Persona 3), I totally reccomend it.
I'd give this a 5 if the main female Sophia wasn't so annoying LOL.
