Till the End of Time is the third instalment of the widely popular
Star Ocean series, Star Ocean 2 being claimed as one of the greatest
Playstation RPG game ever. This would be my first Star Ocean game
Ive played since the previous Star Ocean games are extremely
rare to find over here in England.
So when I saw an advertisement in magazines, since I was looking
for some RPGs to play around Christmas time, I stumbled across Star
Ocean. Two things caught my eyes, SquareEnix and 60
Hours of Gameplay. Any RPG by Square RPG with 60 hours plus was
good enough for me.
So I managed to get hold of the game around Christmas alongside
with the Final Fantasy 12 demo disk. When I got the game home I
realised it had two disks! I hadnt seen an RPG with multiple
disk since Final Fantasy 9! But after completing the game, I wished
theyd had left it at only one disk.
Star Ocean is a great RPG which I would recommend to any RPG fan
however, the game loses strong marks due to the second half of the
game which in my opinion is all over the place and really, really
messy. After playing the first half of the game which is loaded
with lots of brilliant ideas and moments, the second disk almost
utterly fails to do so..
This is mainly due to a plot twist which will just about change
every single thing youve been doing for the last 20 hours
of Gameplay. It makes everything youve done up till that point
stupid and meaningless. However the plot twist will not necessarily
ruin the game for everyone, but the majority of gamers will hate
the game for it
