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.

they want to relive the JRPG genre, it's good actually, graphics is good, story is.. Star Ocean, game play is quite old style JRPG, but somehow the world is just feel lacking, empty, and kind of boring i guess to explore the city, but good enough looking for enemy to grinding experience and loot, but it's not there yet for JRPG Genre

Combat is fun, but the game is too easy and too hectic to rely on some of its strategic elements. These glaring flaws make Star Ocean difficult to recommend to anyone beyond hardcore JRPG fans and diehard loyalists of the series. Even then, this game struggles to be anything more than generic.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness feels like a solid title that got trapped in old gimmicks. It’s beautiful, but empty. There’s nostalgia, but in the wrong places. I still enjoyed much of my time with it, and I’ll even revisit it soon for the bonus dungeons. So many little things hold Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness back, but there’s still something under the flawed surface that’s worth giving a shot.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness is an RPG that merely fulfills its obligations. It's not awful thanks to a cast of likeable characters and an interesting premise, but an abundance of clichés, uneven polish, and messy combat and AI make it less than memorable. And as its main story only provides around 20 hours of playtime instead of the 60 or more the series usually delivers, some of those obligations aren’t met in full.
