IGN AUs Review of Lost Oddyssey

8.0 Presentation
The nondescript menu system is wholly JRPG in tradition. Clean, effective, easy to follow. Overall, the game also keeps UI to a minimum.

9.0 Graphics
Outstanding almost every respect - art direction, animation, textures, lighting. It is, unfortunately, hampered by framerate and screen-tearing.

7.0 Sound
Although the voice-acting is mostly solid, the score is forgettable. The environmental audio is excellent, however.

7.5 Gameplay
It all works - despite AI and balancing issues - but the real problem isn't the gameplay itself, but the concepts behind. It's all been done before.

9.0 Lasting Appeal
It's monsterously large, coming on four DVDs and more hours than is probably healthy - which is a good thing for JRPG fans. There's a lot of gameplay for your buck.

Impressive OVERALL
(out of 10 / not an average)

Are we already going back to the days of the PS1?

You get 10-12 hours of gameplay on each disc.

I got over 100hours in FF12, and thats one disc, and still not close to finishing the sidequests yet.

Could it get a 9 in graphics?
I mean seriously its comparable to FFX for gods sake.
Oh well...

This sight didn't like the score but other sites consider Nobuo Uematsu to be as good as ever.

I guess music really is a personal taste thing. So is graphics to an extent but there are the standard things with graphics that can let them down (screen tearing is one).

MK_Red3842d ago

Good review and score though I'd decrease Graphics score to 7 and add to sound and Presentaion. The game does look good but some cities look rather last genish.

ruibing3842d ago

Graphics aren't really important for an RPG, it's the story and gameplay. I just like JRPGs too much to dislike this title despite it being on the 360.

Another Traditional JRPG for the 360. I'll be sure to check this out. I'll be happy when Atlus, SE, and others start putting out more RPGS for these consoles. There are way too many shooters on the market right now.
