Star Ocean: Till the End of Time is a PlayStation 2 release that I had the chance to play way back in 2004 when it originally released in North America. If I have to be honest, I really liked the game but, unfortunately, I never got a chance to finish finish it!
As you saw yesterday, I’m digging STAR OCEAN Integrity and Faithlessness on PlayStation 4, a game for which I wrote my impressions yesterday.
Since I’m still playing it (and will be playing it for a while since it’s a massive RPG!), I recorded a small gaming session yesterday when I took on a 5-minute dungeon. There aren’t any spoilers in this video, so you can definitely check it out to see why you have to play this great JRPG!
Star Ocean Integrity and Faithlessness (that’s a long game name!) released last week, and I purchased it as soon as it got out. I haven’t finished the main campaign yet, but I’m having a blast playing it so far! Honestly, this is the type of game the deceiving Tales of Zestiria should have been when it released last year. Read below to find out why I like this game so much and why you should also play it right now!
What a reveal! We already had a confirmation a few weeks ago that Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness was to release this summer, but surprise! Turns out that the game will release right as the summer vacation begins, because it will be out on June 28th!
As you’ve probably already noticed, I’m pretty excited for the new Square-Enix/Tri-Ace Star Ocean game that will hopefully make it to western territories this year, and later this month in Japan.
According to a very interesting post I found on DualShockers, there won’t be any direct difference between the content included in the PS3 and PS4 version of this game, but the PS3 version will run at 720p @30fps (said to be variable in some areas), and the PS4 counterpart will run at 1080p @60fps (also variable in some areas).
The PS4 has higher detail on physics, characters, backgrounds, effects, and higher draw distance for objects and enemies. The PS3 version has shorter draw distance and some parts are “reduced and simplified.”
You can check the video below to see some differences in action. Take note that this video has been recorded in 720p, so you won’t be able to see every differences there are in both versions.
