Not as good as the first 3 star ocean games. Square Enix should re-release them on steam or Android so they can be enjoyed too. I don't have a playstation and don't plan on buying one, so i would prefer a steam version. I'm sure others would agree.
i didn't really like the protagonist, he seemed like a loser. the visuals are good, the game play is alright. i had issues with remote play. it's worth playing if you like Star Ocean and don't have a PS3 or XBOX anymore.
Square Enix still should release the other games on steam as well!

Review from Steam

After playing for almost 20 hours I've decided I wanted to talk about this game, as someone who isn't a fan of the series and is just having her first impressions. Honestly I think this game has flaws and it's definitely not the best thing I've played this year, nor it's the worst... I'd say it's pretty mid and that's okay, because I know it's not supposed to be at the same level as fan-favorites like SO2 and SO3. And I'm enjoying it a lot anyway, or else I would have dropped it by now.
So let's talk about the good: graphics look great, combat system is pretty simple (and could be better) but it's efficient and it works, and story is actually very intriguing and probably the thing that keeps me going the most. I'm always looking forward to whatever's next and I think that's very important for this genre. There's also a lot of diversity in races and creatures which is very cool.
But now it's time for the bad... the characters. I will say and I'm not even exaggerating, that they might be the worst characters I've ever seen in a JRPG. Think of the cringiest anime tropes you can imagine... they are probably in this game. And it's such a shame because characters are so important in JRPGs but sadly, they failed here (except with Faize, he's a good boy). I believe that if only they were better, this game would rank higher in everyone's lists.
Despite this however, I'm still having a good time and I recommend it to anyone who can tolerate these kind of anime characterization. If you can't then... probably don't play it, but it's still a fun experience and I think the story is worth it.

Review from Steam

This game is a guilty pleasure of mine. I have put in hundreds of hours here on Steam and on the Xbox 360 version. I adore this game, and it is for all the wrong reasons. The characters are generic cutouts, the story is trying so hard to be deep, the gameplay movement is a bit rubbish and tedious, and so many more flaws that I just can stack up on here. But there's just this charm to the game that I can't break from. It is so likeably unlikeable that I honestly compare it to being a JRPG version of The Room. If you are looking for something with a story with exceptional writing, character investment, and intuitive gameplay, this is NOT your game. But I've grown to love all of it, even down to the silliest flaws.
I have heard other reviews saying there is some gameplay issues, but for me, I have no such problems on my 2070 Super or my 3070 Ti upgrade. I have also played it on my G14 Zephyrus laptop (Ryzen 9 with a 2060 mobile GPU) and it ran that comfortably at 1080p (with baited breath I might add, for those who remember the dreaded softlocking days of the 360). I personally have not experienced these issues on multiple system configs is my point.
I do genuinely love the combat and the equipment / crafting system. They can be tedious to deal with, but once you get an understanding of what you're doing, I feel like I could grind for hours with it. It's a joyous time for myself, blindsiding enemies and blasting enemies on a jumper jet (Bacchus, anyone?). Even rolling around as Lymle was a blast. I have no idea who was sadistic enough to put Battle Trophies for each character. 100 trophies. For ALL OF THEM. But hey, I like doing them.
All in all, solid game if you are willing to just indulge this game and be charmed by the bad stuff. Because trust me, there is bad stuff in this, but if you're like me, you'll get so much more than you could have signed up for. Turn off your critical side and hop on this goofy little JRPG.

Played this on steam deck, loads up fine, cut scenes has audio, controls are working.. didnt get far in but initial testing seems to be working

Review from Steam

A lot of people seem to be very critical of this game, I think it is unwarranted personally.
I'm a huge fan of the Star Ocean IP. Even putting that aside, the game has great graphics, music, combat, and I thought the story was good too.
I waited until I beat the Ethereal Queen to post a review, now that I've done pretty much everything you can in the game, besides playing through on the higher difficulties, I think it was awesome all around. Not perfect of course, every game has some flaws, but they don't detract too much from the overall awesomeness of this game.
If you think it looks like something you might enjoy, just grab it cheap on sale and it's worth every penny in my opinion.

Review from Steam

It's not as good as Star Ocean 3 or 2. The story and characters are a mixed bag. The long final post game dungeon where you can't save between floors is another fault I have with the game. I still however found myself enjoying this game. I think the battle system is pretty solid. I always found it pretty satisfying when you're able to pull off a blindside and also spam rush combos for massive damage. If you're into action based rpgs I can recommend this game.
