In the aftermath of World War III, Earth has been ravaged and the population decimated by a deteriorating environment. The countries that survived have joined together to form the Greater Unified Nations and turned their eyes skyward. Edge Maverick and his childhood friend Reimi Saionji are chosen as pioneer members of the Space Reconnaissance Force, created to seek out new worlds beyond the stars. And so, Edge and his crew aboard the Calnus begin their voyage in search of a new haven for humanity ... and a second chance.

The Last Hope remains a solid and mostly fun JRPG with a few character flaws that don't ultimately sink the ship. The international version is condensed onto a single disc, so there's no irritating swapping to deal with. Aside from the optional additional language tracks and the menu design tweaks, it doesn't hold any vast improvements over the Xbox 360 version.

The game's new home on the PlayStation 3 does a great job of opening up the universe for fans on the new console, and the new features may entice a select few super-fans to dive back in to the Star Ocean universe. But if you were expecting new characters or expanded endings (as was rumored to be included in the game pre-release), then you will be disappointed with this repackaged effort. I still recommend Star Ocean: The Last Hope International edition to those who haven't played it yet, but I can't say the new features offered in this version will get most normal fans excited enough to merit a second purchase.

Even though the game suffers from some visual issues, and save point infrequency can be a huge annoyance, I loved playing Last Hope. The battle system is tremendously entertaining, the cast is a charming ensemble of travelers and the Private Actions continue to fuel proper character development and demonstrate the beauty of optional antics. Although Final Fantasy XIII is right around the corner, Star Ocean: The Last Hope International is a must-play for all you JRPG nuts.
