Ragnarok Odyssey Review | Destructoid

Jim Sterling writes, "If handheld developers don't take any cues from this one, they're absolutely doing it wrong." (PS Vita, Ragnarok Odyssey) 9/10

Nice quote!
I will say that just based on the JP demo I played, it gave me a lot of meat.

The 2-3 missions on the demo's where beatable and I could not make all the kanji out, but the world of "Ragnarok Odyssey" seems really solid.

I gave the demo a 10/10. lol

Same here.
Shame to see that this is Jim Sterling, yet his haters won't give him the props he deserves. He says some crap to stir the pot once in a while, but he backs up his opinions, at least. So he goes and gives a game a great review like this, but it won't be anything the haters will remember.

I hope XSeed's decision to publish Ragnarok Odyssey in NA will give the company a good reward.

He's just prone to petty nitpicking, is all. I don't necessarily disagree with the points he brings up about the games he reviews, but he tends to treat every tiny quibble or annoyance as a game-breaking catastrophe, and consequently his scores end up looking like traffic-bait.

VERY excited about Ragnarok, though. This is exactly the kind of game the Vita needed right now.

What are you his defense shield or something. He acts like an @$$hole to get attention most of the time and somewhere in all the crap he says if you feel like wading through it he makes a few good points. So what? Does that make him reviewer of the year or something? He doesn't deserves any 'props' as you put it and I don't think he asked you to defend him. Who really cares?

Jim gives shit games great scores and the great games shit scores. Its how he gets hits and stays talked about. Without that nobody would care about his ass. Worst reviewer ever.

Then again he gave a ps game a good score so we love him... Until the next time when he gives the next ps game a 3.5 then we'll all hate him again. That about right N4G?

I don't think there's a single reviewer that I "hate" or "love." We're all humans with different opinions and different ways of expressing them. I can deal with that ^_^

Ragnificent!
"Ragnarok Odyssey is such a success because it gets the PlayStation Vita. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that it's damn near perfect as an example of exactly how Vita games should be. This, right here, is a masterclass in handheld software design."

Well said Jim.

@ smashcrashbash

I have never seen a game review in great detail such as this one in a very long while.

LMAO At least he is not a sell out like the annoying, Greg Miller?

See that's what I'm talking about. This is a great review but then there's people waiting to donkey punch me in the crotch for giving the writer behind it a rare compliment, ironically fulfilling what I said earlier >_>

It's one of the best-written reviews of a great game. Relax, smash :P No need to crucify me over something as trivial as an opinion expressed on the internet.

damn a 9 from them on a vita game?? good thing i got the CE sitting here.. Ill play it after i finish liberation
TooTall19  +   1035d ago
How is liberation? I'm getting Smart As and NFS. Target has buy 2 get one free, but I would have to get Liberation instead of Ragnarok.

This is the game that makes me want to get a Vita the most :)

IGN is bad as usual.

GS didn't have my preorder of this game yet. I'm so sad I've been looking forward to this game more than AC3 oh well maybe tomorrow.

is this really a destructoid review?
izumo_lee  +   1035d ago
Wow a surprisingly deep & thorough review by Big Jim! I am amazed that he has given this game such a glowing reception. A lot of other game sites see it as another Monster Hunter clone but kudos to Jim to look past that comparison & judge it on its own merits.

Will pick this up when i get the chance cause right now Okami HD, Mugen Souls, Project Diva F has me swamped for the time being....DOH!
TooTall19  +   1035d ago
Okami is awesome. I'm not getting the HD update cause there's so many new games to play.
mi_titan27  +   1034d ago
how do you like mugen souls? i picked up the collectors edition stright from NIS, but havnt decided if im gonna open it or save it
LiViNgLeGaCY  +   1035d ago
This is such a fantastic game. I'm enjoying the heck out of it so far. Every action/RPG fan needs to pick this game up asap.
