This game is almost unplayable. I don’t know who is out there defending this battle system, presentation, boring story, and ugly muddy colors cause wow, what a fall from Star Ocean 4! Star Ocean 5 has one of the clunkiest battle systems I have ever had the displeasure of experiencing. All the other characters’ special attacks just get in the way of seeing what exactly is happening between me and the enemy. It really matters that I know what is happening considering the flow of battle is determined by me winning or losing the paper-rock-scissors mechanic introduced here! I feel like a clown playing a battle system like this because the enemies will just stand there, glow for a special attack, hit you quickly, or defend for nothing. It looks awful, presentation wise. Your allies also sometimes zoom back and forth between your enemy and theirs. What is up with the terrible targeting in this game?!?!?! Oh my gosh, I can’t stand how awful the targeting is! It cycles through the enemies in I don’t even know what pattern. There’s also a lot of running around from point A to point B and it doesn’t help that the running animation looks cheap as heck. It looks like a 2021 rpg phone game. The collision between characters in game is also strange. You walk through someone and they act like you bumped them. What? WHO LIKES THIS?!?! Its mediocre at best and unplayable at worst. Not complete trash but not worth money in 2021.
