Heat a game I want but playing Fable 2 and very much enjoying it.

Great Price

hot from me

Great price. Slightly underrated game imo.

It's not amazing but the battle system is great fun, it looks fantastic and whilst the story is very slow to pick up, its decent once it gets going-not as bad as some would have you believe. The voice acting is terrible though. Even the best voice acting in it is simply ok and the worst is painful.

I got this for 17.95 from zavvi but would happily have paid up to £25 for it having played it for 40-50 hours now, so this is a good price. I wouldnt touch it if your not a fan of JRPGs though-bit of an aquired taste.

i agree with most of the comments here i cant believe this hasnt sold that well so far. Either its totally underated or the JRPG is dying everywhere except....err..Japan!

I got this for 17.95 also in the Zavvi deal a few weeks ago and its not come out of my 360 yet. Granted its no pick up and play title you have to have at least an hour to spare each time you play it as its quite slow moving but the battle system is one of the best. Graphics and sound are also top notch (apart from the slightly cheesy voiceovers)

I too have now put in around 20 hours or so, and am still on disc 1 of 3, so no complaints whatsoever about value for money

Good price for a good game, this is a very solid JRPG. They are what they are, no need to change a formula that works imo.

Hot deal but with so much to play already im gonig to wait - it will surely drop further by the time i get round to it - hot deal though!

This is a super hot deal, 'Kay?



:thumbsup: youve obviously played it then! :-D

I feel many JRPG producers need to start upping their game. I'm not saying Star Ocean in particular is bad or anything, but generally I find JRPGs need to introduce more comprehensive depth, stronger narrative and character development along with a lot more satisfying gameplay elements. Many of the next gen JRPGS no longer have enough to keep veteran RPG gamers happy IMO. If I'm gonna be spending 50-100 hours of my life on an RPG I wanna get to the end and think that was amazing fun! Not that was a waste of my life, which is a statement I've found myself repeating a lot recently with games

I've still got Eternal Sonata to play and was gonna get through that first- anyone know how that compares to Star Ocean?
