    In just less than 6 months apart, Squareenix remakes the Star Ocean 2 game for the PSP. Fans who loved the original will love this new remake as it includes a few new changes, new graphic interface and more fluid animation than its PS1 version. Other than that nothing much noting other than the new remixed Original sound track and a few new additions such as remade Cutscenes.

    This remake of Tri-Ace's Star Ocean the Second Story is very well done. It like the original game is filled with a great story and great characters.

    a very good remake of a hidden gem on the ps 1 during the end of its life cycle. a mix of fantasy and sci fi this game was really something special in a time where not many rpgs made unique sci fi settings . i would compare it to xenogears in that respect. the game play is also very satisfying seeing the battle take place in real time was really cool to look out.

    It still looks a lot like it did on PSOne 10 years ago. [Jan 2009, p.84]

    Square Enix has done an admirable job of updating classic titles from its library and Second Evolution is just the latest example of their commitment to its loyal fanbase. [Feb 2009, p.70]

    Star Ocean: Second Evolution is clearly a better game than First Departure, despite suffering from some of the same issues.
