STAR OCEAN First Departure R Switch NSP Free Download Unfitgirl This very first game in the Star Ocean series – a series which eventually grew to include eight titles of varying quality – has been through a handful of iterations over the years. Originally released exclusively in Japan on Super Famicom back in 1996 it was then extensively remade using the Star Ocean 2 engine for PSP in 2007, adding brand new prerendered backdrops, voice acting, 3D battlefields, a world map and beautiful CGI cutscenes courtesy of Production I.G. This updated and enhanced version of the game now finds its way onto PS4 and Nintendo Switch in the form of Star Ocean: First Departure R and what we’ve got here is essentially the same game released on PSP with high definition visuals, some newly drawn character avatars and a handful of combat tweaks to make things a little more challenging. This is still a pretty fun little RPG to play. It runs about twenty hours so doesn’t outstay its welcome and many of its systems – real time battles on 3D battlefields and extremely deep crafting – are still quite impressive to this day. However, it’s also very much a product of its time, nowhere near as complex or gripping as the second game in the series, and it tends to waste a lot of time with endless backtracking and random enemy encounters that make the whole thing a little bit of a chore to grind your way through.

Star Ocean: First Departure R tells the story of Roddick, Millie and Dorne, self-appointed local village defence force and residents of the rather backwards planet of Roak which has found itself in the grip of a mysterious illness that’s been turning its inhabitants to stone. After a chance meeting with Ilia and Ronyx, futuristic space adventurers who have travelled from a much more technologically advanced version of Earth, the gang joins forces and travels through time, harnessing advanced technology in order to get to the bottom of Roak’s problems, learn the truth about their planet’s war-torn past and find a vaccine to help save the population, including Dorne who is struck down and turned to stone early in the game’s storyline. Star Ocean’s mixing of traditional fantasy with sci-fi elements was ahead of the curve back in the 1990s and it’s still a fun and intriguing setup. Early scenes showing the young adventurers as fish out of water, being ushered around a space federation ship where they’re bamboozled by automatically opening doors, wowed by elevators and confounded by computers are still entertaining and, in these early stages, there’s hope for a satisfying and thrilling adventure that, unfortunately, never really comes to fruition. This is mainly because once the characters set out on their quest proper the game loses a lot of its rhythm

Story

Wasting time with simple quests which involve copious amounts of backtracking and those random battle encounters which see you face off time and again against the same handful of enemies – whether you’re in modern day Roak or have travelled 300 years into its past, you’ll come up against the very same foes wearing exactly the same armour – who all too quickly become very easy to beat, more of a hindrance that any kind of satisfying combat challenge. Indeed, the combat here, though certainly something new and impressive back in the day, is a simplistic and often tedious affair compared to more modern RPGs, with real time battles more often than not devolving very quickly into button mashing. It’s still fun to be able freely move your characters around the battlefield to line up attacks but things pretty much always degenerate into spamming your special moves – of which you’ve got two assigned to the L and R buttons – and hacking away, pausing to heal, until all your enemies are dead. During these skirmishes you control one of your party of three and can freely switch control to whomever you prefer whilst issuing various strategic commands such as spreading out to attack or getting stuck in as hard and fast as possible. Much more successful than the combat are the crafting, item creation and skill systems here which still feel surprisingly deep and satisfying and afford Assassin’s Creed III

You plenty of opportunity to tailor your character skills and weapons to suit your playstyle, giving you an edge in the heat of some of the more difficult button-mashing battles against the handful of bosses that pop up over the course of your travels. And we really do mean handful. There is a real dearth of side activities, quests and even dungeons over the course of your adventure here, towns and villages are compact and you’re funnelled pretty quickly through proceedings with that running time beefed out for the most part by the backtracking and constant random encounters we’ve previously mentioned. Star Ocean: First Departure R also features Private Actions – another commendably novel idea when the game first released – which are totally optional and allow you to stop to chat to your party members in order to affect relationships – there’s a basic affinity system at work here that feeds in to the outcome of the narrative – and also learn some more of backstory to characters and events. As we said, it’s totally optional, but it’s also more than worth taking the time to indulge in so you get the most of what little story there is here and it certainly adds some much needed depth to the game that you can influence the narrative in little ways through these instances alongside some basic dialogue options that pop up over the course of proceedings.

LEVELS

In terms of this new version of the game, what’s here is well presented, the newly HD visuals giving the whole thing a fresh energy and those enhanced backdrops from the 2007 PSP update still look pretty good nowadays. You can choose between the old PSP character avatars or newly drawn ones by Katsumi Enami which are based on artwork from the original 1996 game. Controls are easy to get your head around, there are virtually zero loading times transitioning between locations and the whole thing is fully voice-acted in both Japanese and English. The story takes the forefront, as the adventure kicks off with a lovely animated opening and features a variety of narrative-heavy chunks throughout. Solid voice-acting, a good localization, and a sense of wonder help keep the whole adventure engaging. The hero is Roddick, a budding warrior in a small village who lives a trope-heavy and typical JRPG fantasy-inspired life. Early events lead Roddick and his friends Millie and Dorne to come into contact with Ronyx and Ilia, two space travelers trying to help prevent catastrophe. While the game manages to stay grounded with a more typical and traditional fantasy setting, the flavoring of sci-fi elements makes it more distinctive. Still, the basic plot is a little predictable, but ultimately what drew me in was the finer details (and also the great soundtrack from Motoi Sakuraba). Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD

Chief among those details is the affection system. Around towns, you can enter them just as Roddick, which kicks off Private Actions where you can interact with other party members and help or harm an invisible stat that measures how much you get along with them. This also extends to other decisions and choices throughout the adventure, and depending on who you befriend or don’t, a lot of the periphery details of your quest are tweaked. Additionally, the character recruitment brings even more player choice. You can have a total of eight party members but only four of them are 100% necessary. The other four spots can be filled by a combination of six other characters, some which require some insight to bring aboard. However, all of those options can be a bit baffling as you go along; I had to poke around guides and FAQs to really have any insight into the specifics. Even in remade form, Star Ocean hides too much from the player. That’s not to say it’d be better with affection and character recruitment being completely transparent, but some sort of in-game clarification would go a long way. This is especially true considering the skill points that help customize every character and allow them to improve in battle and even learn abilities that allow for everything from cooking and crafting to tweaking enemy encounter rates and using animals to buy items while in a dungeon.

CHALLENGES

Some explanation of these deeper concepts is present, but it’s rarely straightforward. The combat, fortunately, is relatively straightforward. Clearly inspired by the team’s previous game, Tales of Phantasia, Star Ocean’s battle system is real-time action. Enemies are encountered on the overworld and dungeons randomly, and then it cuts to a specific battle screen where you control one character and the computer controls up to three others. Commands are simple: one button attacks and two shoulder buttons trigger limited use special moves. The first few hours are on the easy side as you can get by with just spamming the attack button, but as your party gets larger, more strategy comes into play. Being able to switch between which party member you control and set specific tactics for the ones you aren’t handling gives you an overall control of the battle that makes boss battles tense and rewarding. While I don’t have experience with the Super Famicom original or PSP remake to compare, First Departure R runs well on Switch and displays very nicely with its mixture of sprites, 3D areas, and pre-rendered backgrounds. This specific iteration adds the ability to use either of the two previous Japanese voiceovers in addition to the English PSP one and some new character artwork. The biggest addition might be the ability to run faster in towns and the overworld, which quickens the pace, likely trimming a few minutes off the relatively brisk 20-ish-hour playtime.

If I had any knock against this release, it’s that it does very little to make this 2008 remake a 2019 game other than plop it on a new platform. At the end of the day, that’s not a huge issue, but it certainly compares less favorably to some of the smarter remasters and remakes in recent memory. Regardless, Star Ocean: First Departure R is an overall port of a good game. It stands out in a few ways from its contemporaries, mostly in its Tales-esque battle system and character recruitment and affection minutiae. My best recommendation for First Departure R might be that it’s a story-heavy RPG that spins a yarn compelling enough to keep you engaged while also delivering a battle system that is breezy and not as technical. Star Ocean has a lot of complexities underneath the hood, but taking it at face value can leave you with an approachable and enjoyable adventure. Star Ocean: First Departure R includes everything from the PSP release and has some nice extras. In addition to the original PSP character art, there’s a new portrait option available. Sadly, cutscenes don’t reflect the different portraits. The other big addition is in voice acting. In addition to English voice acting, you can also play the game with the Japanese PSP voice acting or a new Japanese audio track specially done for Star Ocean: First Departure R. In terms of content, those are the only major additions to this release.

If you already played this on PSP, I wouldn’t recommend getting this version just for new voice acting and portrait options. I was hoping there would be some major quality of life improvements. On Nintendo Switch, Star Ocean: First Departure R doesn’t make use of the touchscreen at all. In handheld mode, it suffers from an annoying issue relating to the font choice. The font doesn’t scale well in general from the PSP version to this remaster but in handheld mode, some of the alphabets don’t even look as they should. The environment could’ve used some touching up because while the characters look nice even while moving, the environment looks very dated. Having looked at some footage of the original release for Star Ocean, those environments look like they would scale up to HD displays better. If you’re wondering whether Star Ocean: First Departure R is worth buying on PS4 over Nintendo Switch, I’ve enjoyed it a lot more on Nintendo Switch. The game feels the same on both systems when docked but being able to also play it on the go on Switch makes this version better. It also isn’t a very long JRPG or a very good one on either PS4 or Nintendo Switch but I’m always happy when older games that aren’t available digitally are brought to modern systems. Star Ocean: First Departure R plays great and mostly looks great, too.
