WorthPlaying reviews Lost Odyssey

"Although the Xbox 360 has little to offer in the RPG area, it is difficult to recommend Lost Odyssey over RPG offerings on other consoles. The gameplay is fun enough, but so agonizingly slow that the enjoyment of combat is seriously marred. For the most part, the story line is average and clichéd, and the dramatic moments don't entirely make up for that. The best part is the Kaim's 'Thousand Years of Dreams' short stories, but the lackluster graphics and average soundtrack do little to make this game feel next-gen, and the few times it does shine are not enough to make up for the many times that it doesn't. If you're a die-hard RPG fan with a 360, Lost Odyssey is worth buying simply due to the lack of other choices. However, beyond that, it has little lasting appeal, and once you've finished it once, you probably won't pick it up again."

Besides last gen consoles (and PCs), what console has more RPGs then the 360 at the moment?

BTW I just played Eternal Sonata...my first JRPG, thought it was decent enough and will probably give LO a try. Still debating on BD and looking at Dark Messiah as well.

Eternal Sonata, are you doing Encore mode? This game had some twist but it was a good story and the Music was awesome...

Picking up Lost Odyssey today. I had it reserved.

I don't get contradiction..

-"If you're a die-hard RPG fan with a 360, Lost Odyssey is worth buying simply due to the "lack of other choices"."

then said this earlier..

-"Although the Xbox 360 has little to offer in the RPG area, it is difficult to recommend Lost Odyssey over RPG offerings on "other consoles"."

"it is difficult to recommend Lost Odyssey over RPG offerings on "other consoles"."

on other consoles?? what other consoles? im assuming he means PS2 cause the wii and ps3 dont have any rpgs. the last time i checked the ps3 only had 1 rgp.. folklore. it isnt any better than lost O.

Sakaguchi has become the Uwe Boll of game development.

This would be true if both of his offerings so far averaged low scores that rivaled the likes of Lair, Bomberman Zero, etc.

Whats with the bad reveiws? I was looking forward to this game damn it. Maybe its the lame reveiwers. Iam thinking about changing my mind and getting Eternal Sonata...I havent touched my 360 for serveral weeks and on the verge of being sold.
