Odin Sphere Review (Ps2)



vid upped by duckroll

A 2D fantasy action RPG with an emphasis on battle tactics and elaborate storytelling. A pretty exceptional offering and perhaps the last great RPG for the Ps2.
Scoring 84% from 38 reviews on Metacritic.com

Ps2 Reviews Summary
As close to perfection as you're going to get on the PS2
Never have I seen a game so visually pleasing.
A fun game with solid concepts, along with a great musical score and interesting plot.
Animations and graphics all that is worth recommending.
Unique, deep battle and level system, a good storyline, interesting characters and well balanced gameplay
They don't make too many like it anymore.
Repetition is frustratingly similar to that of countless other games
40+ hour adventure, one of the best RPGs to come out on the PS2 in a while

Wow! We don't need the PS3 in our world do we Elderly?

This is surely the future of gaming!
There's a backwards compatible version for the Saturn isn't there?

I'm in a fantasy world aren't I?

Ross from Pro-gamer (see sidebar links) put me on to it, I must admit I'm enthralled by it as well... so many games, so little time
