Still Enjoying Star Ocean

I am quite enjoying the plot of Star Ocean: The Last Hope. Edge has just met up with his old pal Crowe and things are starting to get even more interesting. My party seems filled out and Faize has just left (which is okay – I worry that he may not be a good guy by the end). The cut scenes are incredibly long, but mostly okay. The really slow voice acting of Sarah is quite annoying. Someone should give her a cup of coffee.

I’ve never played a game with cut scenes as long as this one, though I hear Metal Gear Solid 4 also has long ones. I’m beginning to appreciate the artistic style of the game, and some of it is rendered beautifully (particularly the charaters), but other times, the blockiness and aliasing hurt my eyes. The music is very good and sets the mood well.
