Quoted from The Legend of Heroes III: Song of the Ocean Reviews:
Check out these quotes from The Legend of Heroes III: Song of the Ocean reviews & previews
"A traditionally produced RPG that hits many of the right notes for old-school RPG fans, and even new-school RPG gamers. Because of the intense focus on dialogue in this game, it won't appeal to those who want more action.."
"From what will ultimately be a party of six characters, you can control up to four combatants in battle. The battles in Song of the Ocean are turn-based, but their lack of party formations or grid-based arenas makes them quite unlike those in the majority of RPGs. The area that you fight in will be the same area in which you encountered the monsters, though with the camera zoomed in much closer so that individual party members and enemies (as opposed to just one member representing each group) are clearly visible."
"The Legend of Heroes III: Song of the Ocean is a competent and lengthy role-playing game, but it's painfully generic without the slightest tinge of originality or creative flair."
"Legend of Heroes III is far from a bad game, but it seems content with being merely adequate, and nothing more. It's like the student that constantly turns in C-grade papers since he knows he'll pass the class with those, even when he could aim for a much higher score. If the only system you've got is a PSP and you're totally jonesing for an RPG, Legend of Heroes III might be sufficient enough. Otherwise, there's nothing about it that makes it worth recommending."
"It took a while, but Song of the Ocean is easily the best title of the Legend of Heroes trilogy. Even though it’s a standalone title, it's nice to see a little bonus provided for series fans with the new battle scenes and cameos of previous characters. It's also nice to see a few new features within the battle system. However, even with these changes to the game, Song of the Ocean still falls victim to some of the problems that have hampered the series. It's the strongest title of the trilogy, but it's still a ways away from being a must have RPG."
