"Great depth of gameplay"
5 stars"

A great game. Much better than Mass Effect in my opinion. It takes a long time to finish and the art & music direction is just superb, the dream sequences being parts of the game to definitely look forward to. Top this off with great visuals (especially for an RPG, it runs on the Unreal 3 engine), deep and engrossing combat and gameplay which keeps you coming back for more, and you have a winner. A must buy for RPG fans.

"An RPG not to be missed!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Lost Odyssey is an enjoyable role playing game.

The original minds behind Final Fantasy have come together under the Mistwalker label and created a game that, in my opinion, rivals it's Square-Enix counterparts.

The characters are well drawn out, and there are moments that will have you entertained, laugh out loud and also parts which will pull on your heart strings. It's a fine story played out well.

The music is done by legendary, Nobua Uematsu or Final Fantasy fame. The melodies are well placed and suite the mood of each setting. Also, if you're running a surround sound system, the 5.1 channel audio is immersive. i.e. You can hear crisp droplets around you while you walk around in a dank cave or sewer system.

The battle system is still very standard Japanese role playing fare. You open the menu, choose the attack, spell or item then let rip! There is a ring system for attacks as well, where you hold down the right trigger and release when both circles overlap, to create an additional effect on your enemy. It's a nice touch and keeps the gameplay fresh.

Overall, it was a wonderful story that entertained me over the expanse of all 4 discs and is now one of my favourite RPGs.

If you enjoy role playing games, this one should not be missed.

"Brilliant Story Telling and mind blowing graphics!"
5 stars"

as omst reviews have stated this is a great game. I especialy like the fact that there are no summons/GF's/E­idolons or Aeons in this game as they have kinda gotten repetative and JPRG's needed a new pace. becides this game doesnt need them.

This game should keep any Final Fantasy (pre XII fan)Happy as the creators of the first 12 games (including X-2) are behind this (not square enix but the people). They did absolutley fantastic work on this game and i hope to see a sequel that lives up to this.

Description

Lost Odyssey is a revolutionary next-gen RPG developed by the Father of the Final Fantasy franchise, Hironobu Sakaguchi.

Lost Odyssey is the story of Kaim, an immortal character who has lived more than 1,000 years and doesn’t remember his past and doesn’t know where his future lies. Throughout Kaim’s journey, a handful of characters will join him on an odyssey to discover their intricate past and destiny, leading players through a dramatic story of massive scale. Lost Odyssey will feature breathtaking visuals and an epic adventure made possible only by the power of Xbox 360.

Features:
  • Innovative RPG gameplay features. “Lost Odyssey” blends massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) elements into the game’s traditional RPG system, enabling players to make strategic decisions for a more immersive and deep gameplay experience.
  • Engaging and unparalleled emotional story. With story sequences penned by award-winning Japanese novelist Kiyoshi Shigematsu in cooperation with producer Hironobu Sakaguchi, “Lost Odyssey” sets a new benchmark for the RPG genre with a combination of true-to-life cinematics and the story of an immortal man who has been suffering in many ways for 1,000 years. Players will witness Kaim’s life as he lives through many generations, becomes part of numerous families, falls in and out of love, and confronts all of the conflicts that arise. Kaim’s struggles are set in a world that is on the verge of a “mystical industrial revolution,” where mankind has attained dark powers.
  • Massive scope and engrossing environments. The massively scoped worlds, memorable characters and epic story line of “Lost Odyssey” play out like an intense and unsettling blockbuster action film. Heading up the artistic demands of the title is famed Japanese comic artist Takehiko Inoue; renowned composer Nobuo Uematsu has been recruited to create a contemporary soundtrack.
  • Realistic graphics in next-generation gaming. Powered by Unreal Engine 3 technology, “Lost Odyssey” boasts stunning visual fidelity and rendering quality. The Unreal Engine 3 technology pushes high-definition visual designs to a higher level and brings out the smallest details in the largest battles. Gamers will experience a rich dynamic world with an unprecedented level of detail. Users can experience the true-to-life gameplay and facial expressions of emotionally distressed characters in the world of “Lost Odyssey.”
