I'd like to say 'thanks' to the western reviewers so far who have managed to do full reviews for the US version without comparing it to a game that won't be out for another 18-24 months and about which we know pretty much nothing.

April 24th for Europe's release is the current pencilled in date for those awaiting Last Hope with baited breath, and it looks like BradyGames are doing the paperback guide which should be available by the end of February if you want to swot up beforehand.

FYI: Famitsu scored it 9/9/8/8 (34/40), their main concerns being wonky camera outside of battle and the voice acting, aside from that they were very glowing about it.

In comparison Famitsu scored:

Last Remnant 38/40
Blue Dragon 37/40
Lost Odyssey 36/40
Tales of Vesperia 35/40
Infinite Undiscovery 31/40

Star Ocean fans don't really care, they just want to get their mitts on it.
