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.

    This game is fantastic! I do not understand the bad reviews. I will admit that the voice acting is pretty bad at times, but at other times it This game is fantastic! 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

    This is one of the best rpg's i have ever played. I really like RPG's but they tend to drag out and i lose interest in them. But IF This is one of the best rpg's i have ever played. 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

I was expecting something completely awful, like Star Ocean TillI gotta say, I was genuinely surprised by how DECENT (emphasis added) IU was. I was expecting something completely awful, like Star Ocean Till the End of Time. I really liked the characterizations, and while the plot was kinda typical, the former made up for it. The battle system is extremely satisfying as well: seeing multiple parties out on the field is really neat. Graphics are above average in some areas and merely average in others. Infinite Undiscovery definitely has the Tri-Ace charm. It's not really worth more than $30 though, so I can see why the critics might have been a bit..critical of it. A solid 8 at <=$30, but a 7 if you're paying the full $60 price tag. 7.5 average, rounded to an 8. Expand

    This RPG reminds me a lot of Tales of Vesperia; which isn't a bad thing at all. My biggest gripe with this game is how childish it is. Now, IThis RPG reminds me a lot of Tales of Vesperia; which isn't a bad thing at all. My biggest gripe with this game is how childish it is. Now, I don't mind child silliness, I mean, I love Blue Dragon after all, but it goes too far for my taste. Especially when it's trying to have somewhat serious elements. The game is good, and it provides many hours of gameplay, but I know too many people who stopped playing this game because it was really childish. The flaw doesn't come from the game itself, but the voice actors who make it sound so childish. If they would've done better with the voice actors, this game would've been ten times better, but I can't hate it solely because I thought it was childish. If you can look past its silliness and enjoy the game for what it is, then it's worth your time. Expand

    I had very high hopes for this game given all the hype plus this being a S-E & Tri-Ace project. However, I can't give this game more I had very high hopes for this game given all the hype plus this being a S-E & Tri-Ace project. However, I can't give this game more than a mediocre rating because that's exactly what it was, a very mediocre RPG. The game feels unpolished and probably could've used a few more months in development for refinement. The story is lackluster and poorly execute, with the main quest being way too short and the cast of characters way too large for a 20-hour game. The visuals are nice but not really up to the usual S-E standards. All in all the game was a disappointment given the lofty reputations that both the developer and publisher have. Expand
