Took a long time but in the end it's all worth it
I'll be honest; i took a break on this game. It was so dreadfully long at first but as the story progresses, I fell in love with the plot. There are tons of extra quests and there are 4 disks to play. That's how long the game is! But it has great graphics, great story, great people, and great ending. I cried. I'm a baby.
the next best thing to final fantasy games!
AWESOME! the story had the perfect amount of that melodrama i always crave from final fantasy games-comedy and love are a fun twist in this game :) nothing beats an rpg that actually holds a GOOD in-depth story line and has good characteristics all throughout. This game was like being addicted to a really good anime, but you have control of the characters-LOVE this game!
Really Enjoyable and Memorable
This reminds me of the Final Fantasy games. I love the stories of games like these. Beautifully done. This game comes in 4-disc and there is an issue with the 4th one. The Xbox cant read the 4th disc which really frustrated me. 4 disc not working is a common problem for this game since it happened to many people. By the time I got to disc 4, you cant return the game cause the policy will expire.
It has taken me some time to find a JRPG on the new gen that wasn't a wreck of a story line, over complicated battle system, or was cursed with bad voice acting. Now I haven't played all the JRPGs that I've wanted to play yet, but this game is the first step in a good direction. It's characters are memorable and the battle system feels like what Final Fantasy should have been developing. This game is rivaling Legend of Dragoon for my favorite JRPG! I also like the fact that it's a 4 disc game it takes me back to the golden age of PS one.
Better than mass effect.
A fun game with likable characters, the game only has some minor flaws the length is too long if you ask me and the gameplay isn't very inventive but those are small compared to the wonderlful visual novels in the game. The visual novels are very in depth and gives you more insight on the main character Kaim. The voice acting is very well done as are the character models with their facial expressions. Fantastic sound and great visuals that hold up three or four years after the release of the game. Like the title says better than mass effect.
Why does everyone like this the controls are bad and IT TAKES 7 DISCS FOR PETES SAKE. For everyone it takes to long to load the the story is only good thing. DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
amazing story and gameplay
This was one of the first 360 games that I owned when i first purchased one, and i must say that its amazing. This game has one of the best stories I've seen in a rpg before and the gameplay its great too, (if you like turn based combat). I wasn't sure if i was going to like it at first but once you reach certain key parts in the game, the story starts too unfold and you finally understand whats going on. Bottom line, i recommend it to those rpg lovers out there.
Just wanted to say...
That I love this game and their isn't many (material) things in this world I would use that word for. I played it a long time ago and never wrote a review and with The Last Story on the horizon and reminded me of this epic game. The reigning king of this generation's consoles in my opinion honestly. Simply put if your a true rpg gamer like myself and KNOW that story line is the most important aspect of a rpg game. Then Lost Odyssey is for you. It will never receive the recognition it deserves cause final fantasy isn't written in it's title but make no mistake this is more of a true Final Fantasy experience then the newer Final Fantasy games easily.
This game is amazing, the type of gameplay is very unusual its a turn based rpg its like Pokemon mixed with the anime of soulcaliber and your the Pokemon. The graphics are stunning how people have enough time to pack this much detail in this much space is beyond me!
This game is nothing short of extraordinary. A fantastic storyline, great graphics--considering the game was made in 2008, like many who have played I was really hoping for Lost Odyssey 2. Colorful characters, treasure hunts, and other side adventures, you can easily spend 50-100 hours...It would have been an intriguing franchise...Highly recommended at $12.99 it is a steal. It has lasting appeal. I'm sure this isn't the best review, bottom line, I would grab this one.
