CheatCC Review: Lost Odyssey (4 out of 5) - A Beautiful Dream

CheatCC writes: "We've been waiting for Hironobu Sakaguchi's Lost Odyssey for quite some time now. In fact, ever since the stunning trailer released in September 06 at TGS, 360 owners have been chomping at the bit while waiting to get their hands on this title. That amazing cinematic glimpse turned out to be the opening cut-scene of a beautiful and complex Japanese RPG. Fans of the action/adventure genre will not find this title to be nearly as engaging as the initial trailer made it out to be. If the high-paced intensity of the God of War or Halo franchises is ideal, then this game won't be for you. This is a title for the patient, methodical gamer. The visuals are fantastic, the story is complex and intriguing, and the battle mechanic is bolstered by clever nuances that make the familiar JRPG experience feel fresh and engaging."

The story is too old to be commented.

, which is why I love it more is, it is actually challenging, the Bosses actually level up with you, so you really have to be tactical in finding what works between your army.

Good example is the first Boss. I thought he was going to be a piece of cake, since I flew through Eternal Sonata, but was in for a suprise.

This is what I like..I hate easy RPGs that don't require much thought.

Though I agree, the game is not perfect, but this is as close as it has come to Final Fantasy 10 since it was released. I can only hope more from Mistwalker Studios.
