Man I loved this game, I hope they do a LO2 oneday...

I never did beat it but I loved the game. I stopped playing at some huge factory/lab near or on last disc (don't remember) due to a pain of a boss fight and just never went back for some reason.

Some of the emotional storytelling was great (first disc especially, think near the end of it).

I think that's very close to where I stopped playing LOL! Too many games. I play a little of this, a little of that... and eventually beat some here and there. I should pick this one back up and finish it.

I stopped playing The Last Story after getting smacked repeatedly by some tentacle filled hydra thing. Eventually I need to get back to that one too.

It was the true FF13 game of this gen in my opinion

It was basically a classic FF game updated for this gen. I don't get how these guys can do it yet Square couldn't. They were like "Oh yeah lets change everything and ruin what the game is about

Side quests

Open map to travel to and from

Likeable characters...JANSEN was AMAZING :D ....however Cooke and Mac were annoying. Only kept Cooke in my team since she was a great healer.

Turn based combat with a twist

Great theme song...I'd take Sheena Easton over crappy Leona Lewis any day. It was like Jansens and Mings theme song :)

Great soundtrack

Lots to unlock, find, upgrade and explore

Yet there isn't a sequel yet...what gives. Is it they realised RPGs don't sell on the Xbox 360, if that's the case do it for Sony instead.

zerocrossing2149d ago

LOL Jansen's character ark was something else right? :D

Im really hoping for a direct sequel or FF style successor but It doesn't look much like we'll ever see one, the franchise has way too much potential to just be left collecting dust...

Microsoft owns Lost Odyssey so it won't be making any PS appearances. I guess you can dream tho.. I guess your right that JRPGs don't sell well on Xbox but that doesn't mean MS can't try again!! Lost Odyssey deserves a sequal!!

Sorry Hironobu Sakaguchi will never make a game on the ps3. Sony tried to destroy Hironobu because of one big flop which is FF Spirits Within. He said in an interview that he hates the father of playstation.

He did almost make Squaresoft close down. Seems like the reason Square and Enix combined because of him. Don't know if they would of combined still or not.

But he made great games with Squaresoft but almost killed them.

Sucks he won't make a game for ps3. He needs to get over his vendetta. I'm sorry anyone that usually makes something and loses that much money usually might get fired. U think FF14 was bad? This was much bigger blow to squaresoft.

I am suprised that he thought it was a great idea to make the movie westernized.

Really I don't know if his hate is just towards the father of the playstation(which is no longer with them) or playstation in general. I don't see him making a ps3 game but since the father steped down he might reconsider.... hopefully.

I think I heard he was working on 3 games and there all ios games.

I regret not playing this game... I owned it for a little while and played perhaps 2 hours, however never really touched it again. Ended up trading it in at a later point in time (back before I realized how stupid it is to trade in games most of the time.)

It's definitely one of those ones I really want to go back to and give another try.

zerocrossing2149d ago (Edited 2149d ago )

You should go back and play it if you ever get a chance.

The characters are very likeable, Kaim seems a little one dimensional at first but he opens up and becomes more fleshed out as you progress through the story, the RPG gameplay is top notch IMO, truly great if you're a fan of the old school like me, the 1000 years of dreams segments are something else too, most of them are compelling story's and are incredibly well written.

N4GDgAPc2149d ago

The thing I was suprised about of the game was the short stories u could read. If someone tried to explain me about it I would of thought it would be stupid. But it almost became my favorite part of the game. It would be awsome to read a hole book like that.

cleft52149d ago

This is easily one of the best games this generation. The short stories in this game left me in tears, such an amazing game.

karlowma2149d ago

Same, man. Both me and my roommate teared up a few times through this game. Made for some awkward moments between a couple of "tough guys". Lol.

nupes982149d ago

I hope there is another one made. AMAZING game

Gamer392149d ago

Lost Odyssey and Xenoblade best JRPG this generation.

SolidDuck2149d ago

I would put ni no kuni in there too.
