So I just finished Star Ocean 5. Still going to go back and play the post game stuff. But over all not a bad game but it was in my opinion the worst of the Star Oceans.
The Story was good. I loved that they started the game differently by starting with the main character being from the underdeveloped planet. Change up the formula a bit is good. The battle system was fun as always. Welch is always fun. I liked the role system being the tactics for the characters.
Even though I felt the story was good it was a bit generic and lacking in much space travel at all. In fact you do not ever go to a different planet other then faykreed. The world of the game is small and annoying because for most of the game you have to travel by foot to each location. If I had to guess the size of Faykreed by the world I would guess it being smaller then Great Britain (by a long ways). On top of the world being small the game story was not as in-depth as I am use to for a star ocean game. The Battle system while fun felt slower then older versions and more simplified. Leveling was extremely easy. was 99 when I should have been 70.
Ultimately a good JRPG but lacking in places.
