Fans of Squareenix is given another gift
from the company as in the form of the
Star Ocean series, the cult classic from
the SNES era comes back fully remade
with new remixes and a few new additions
that were not seen in the original game.
The audio improved, gameplay tuned and
the graphics incredible for a 2D game,
fans will surely be remembering this
classic for years! 9/10

Its only 70k in America, why is this is

Selling 500K is actually
quite good for a JRPG that is not part
of the big three series(FF, DQ, KH). I
am more dissapionted in the NA sales for
the game. SO3 sold 740K in the US
alone. Then again, the game ha sa
disadvantage of being released around
many big game. I hope that doesn't
mean SO:TLH bombs.

SO1 in SO2's engine... It's an
interesting experience, though it keeps
reminding me that it isn't actually SO2
by the less intuitive menu system.
Also, they really did a bit of a poor
job of distributing skill point
requirements for this one; I had all
skillsets mastered long before level 99,
let alone level 255.

But it is a
good game. Overall, I think I prefer
SO2, just the same. Mostly because
I've played SO2 to death and know it
like the back of my hand, admittedly.
