Star Ocean 5 is such fail

One of the most anticipated PS4 games of the year, Star Ocean -Integrity and Faithlessness- is a joke, according to most gamers. It's so bad that Amazon are already selling it almost half price (4,799 yen down from 8,618 yen).

The main points of criticism are:
  • Bad camera: it constantly wobbles around, making people sick.
  • No way to skip cut scenes.
  • Uninspired story and characters (just see how ugly the main heroine is).
  • Badly scripted cut scenes (dialogue that makes you cringe).
  • Small number of maps: mostly on a single planet or in a spaceship.
  • Unbalanced and confusing battle (e.g. the special effects actually block the view).
  • Too short: most people are saying around 20 hours.
 Are quality JRPGs a dying breed? Let's hope Persona 5 and Final Fantasy 15 will be good.


  1. Darn, that's pretty disappointing. Thanks for the heads up! I should have seen this coming after the previous couple Star Ocean titles...

    1. Got Dark Souls 3 instead. It rules, just like Bloodborne.
