Star Ocean: The Second Story was released in 1999. It was published by Enix (who is now merged with Square) and developed by Tri-Ace. The studio is known for making unique battle systems like the one featured in Valkyrie Profile. The PlayStation game Star Ocean: The Second Story is no different. It features unique gameplay, great music, and an engaging story. Unfortunately, the game was overshadowed by the mega popular Final Fantasy VII from Square.
