The actions taken by the player with each discovery have a real-time impact on the world. Situational Battles: Players are confronted with a variety of dramatic “situational battles” such as executing a daring escape while a gigantic ogre follows in hot pursuit, or waging battle amidst towering tidal waves. The dynamic environments change and respond in real-time to player commands, creating an entirely new experience never before seen in the genre. A Seamless World and Real-time Action: Combat, exploration, and other actions all take place within the same environment, seamlessly shifting between each game facet. Battles are carried out in real-time, bringing the vibrant fighting sequences of the STAR OCEAN series out of the traditional battle screen into a beautiful and lush environment. [Square Enix] Expand

  1. Overall Infinite Undiscovery is a very enjoyable experience and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is either a Square Enix, Tri-Ace or just an role playing game fan in general.

    Infinite Undiscovery isn't the epic JRPG for the X360 we have been waiting for, but it's a great stop gap for the expected ones (Final Fantasy XIII and Star Ocean: The Last Hope) and certainly the most fun I have had in a JRPG on the X360 yet.
  3. Infinite Undiscovery isn’t the greatest RPG out there, but with charming characters and an interesting story (despite being dipped in rather an abundance of cliché) it certainly is well worth looking into if you like RPGs.
  4. Infinite Undiscovery is a great addition to the slowly-rising stock of Xbox 360 RPG titles, and a worthy inclusion to the library of Square Enix titles as well.

    It's absolutely recommendable, but it ccould've been so much more. [Nov 2008, p.78]
  6. It's not every day that Square Enix releases a game for Xbox 360, so we expected Infinite Undiscovery to be an original and exciting action RPG. What we received is a boring, by-the-numbers adventure that once again casts us as a weak and at times clueless young boy that must destroy evil.
  7. Take away all the mind-numbingly painful design choices and there may be a game deserving of the Square Enix name here, but all the extraneous material makes that nearly impossible. A game that you will soon undiscover… infinitely.

I do not understand the bad reviews. I will admit that the voice acting is pretty bad at times, but at other times it is good. And the mouths are not in sync with the words, which is annoying. Also, the dialofue is pretty poorly written at times. And it is also true that the plot is generic, but it has kept my attention. Lastly the graphics are not as good as Lost Odyssey. But the gameplay is great!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And there is SOOOO much depth to this game. And it is so fun! It is very rewarding to advance the plot and accomplish the many, many sidequest available along the way. But I recommend that you buy the strategy guide! It is a MUST if you do not want to miss LOTS and LOTS of items, situation bonuses, achievements, events, and other secrets. This game is freaking awesome! Expand

I really like RPG's but they tend to drag out and i lose interest in them. But IF kept me hooked with the amazing story and maybe the best combat mechanics i have ever seen and not just in the RPG catagory. I can not recommend this game enough it is simply amazing on ever level. Look the game has a low score (even though i don't care for revews) If you are still iffy about getting this give it a rent. The game is worth a try and in my opinion deffinitly worth a buy. Expand

    This is a game that is flawed by poor lip syncing as well as shoddy acting, but that is about all I have found wrong with the game. I was This is a game that is flawed by poor lip syncing as well as shoddy acting, but that is about all I have found wrong with the game. I was playing about 2 hours in and really started getting a feel for the main character. This is a must have for any die hard RPG gamer and I am honored to say it will remain a part of my collection.

    Do yourself a big favor and unlike a lot of others, play through Infinite Undiscovery to the end and make sure you get to the second halfDo yourself a big favor and unlike a lot of others, play through Infinite Undiscovery to the end and make sure you get to the second half first. This game starts off a bit slow to a wide range of people, because the first disc just doesn't grab you with the plot. Most of the time, you are kept wondering about this guy Capel and why he does nothing but complain. However after you get past that rather rushed part of the story, it gets whole hell of a lot better. Disc 2 in particular starts out very strong, you figure out what the main protagonist's motivations are and definitely it's at this point that the game really pulls you in. The second half is like a nine point five in comparison to the first half, and just a very unforgettable journey seeing Sigmund again and understanding why things happened. Overall, this is a very enjoyable journey which deserves a play through. It lasts a good twenty hours and I'd say it is well done. Give it a whirl and whatever you do, don't try to think about the beginning too much. Expand

    A lot of good ideas -- horribly executed. For all the cool things about it, the stupid plot and the unfun battles make it a pointless play. A lot of good ideas -- horribly executed.
