Xbox World 360 went hands on with Mistwalker's latest Japan-smashing RPG:
"We're just a little disappointed, to be honest. Kaim Argonar, the star of Lost Odyssey, is an immortal. And yet, if you and your party are defeated in combat, then it's still game over. And there we were, secretly hoping for a game that would turn the Japanese RPG format on its head. Nope; quite the opposite, in fact. This is as much a traditional J-RPG outing as Blue Dragon. But, with that expectation junked and dusted, Lost Odyssey is simply four (yep, FOUR) discs of sweet prospect."
