Well its hard to not get it right back then since they had only made like 3 games by PSOne era. But if you're not so critical than some of the tri-ace stuff won't really bother you but heres what I know alot of my friends and I didnt like about their recent titles.

-Valkyrie Profile 2 left alot to be desired on what was an amazing setup by the first game, it stumbled over itself in story.

-Star Ocean 3 played like the retarded cousin of the "Tales of" games and story wasn't much better either also a general criticism is how we're in a high tech future and still look like hobos.

-Infinite Undicsovery is pretty much uncontested the worst RPG ever made this generation. Unplayable, uninteresting and some of the worst game design ever.

-Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume had a horrendous soundtrack and messed up game balance with essentially only two difficulty modes. Boring walk in the park and I'LL KILL ALL YOUR FIRST BORN CHILDREN, no middle ground.

-Star Ocean 4 had irritating dialogue, bizzarre localization changes, really creepy character designs which looked more like out of a eroge and level design was rather annoying. However unlike 3 it actually had a pretty good plot which at least puts it at pretty decent since story is important for RPG's.

-Radiata Stories was pretty much the best thing they did recently and that was like the first game they made for PS2.
