A Game that Could be Played Till the End of Time!

We all know Star Ocean, since it has a good number of games and the anime, but is the third game, Till the End of Time, a good game to add to your collection, or even just to rent?

A simple Heck Yeah is the answer!

The story has you play as Fayt, starting you off at a beach planet with your childhood friend. It's all cool and everything until... well... one thing leads to another (to avoid spoilers!), and you find yourself fighting to stay alive. Later on in the game, you find some allies which really do help you and not be there to be annoying or something. And having an ally, you can play as them, and never play as Fayt again, if you so wish to.

The gameplay is sold... VERY solid and VERY fun. But it CAN get a bit repetitive, but that's why the story is in the game! You can have four special attacks (you need to use your head when making your skill list, for there are A LOT of skills you can use), Long Range to Short Range and from Blockable (X) to Unblockable attacks (O).

Anyway, the story is long... REALLY long, but in a good way. It is also deep with some twists (some voice acting could be better, but that's to be expected, but I love Fayt's voice, it fits him perfectly!), and some events you won't see coming.

After you beat the game, there are SO many thing for you to find, such as extra dungeons, many more bosses... and that real final boss from another game the creators have made... someone from Valkyrie Profile, as a small hint (never played it, but I've heard it was good).

The three (yep! Three!) extra dungeons will keep you busy for a while, especially the last one with over a hundred floors to beat! Just be glad that the level max is 255!... I think...

All in all, I would advice anyone to buy this game. There are so many extra things and the main game itself is so much fun.

Which is probably why Star Ocean 4 wasn't as good as it could have been... in my opinion. Go ahead if and read my review on that, if you want to!

I think this game was ok but i can see where it needs some work. the controls were ok but a little slow, the graphics are nice, the story was also good, but the game sometimes left me wandering around trying to find out what to do next. over all a very good game i would buy it

Multiple endings is cool, I just wish the story was a little better, as it also takes forever for the story to start moving. However, I was interested in the ending I got.
