Lost Odyssey: Big, Dumb and Pretty?

by KM Retro:

"This would have been a solid game, ten years ago.
Is it the climate? Is it that I'm impatient? Is it that I'm somehow unfairly expecting games to have grown up other than in terms of aesthetics in the last decade?
Or is it that Lost Odyssey is just big, dumb and pretty?"

Did this douchebag even bother to get into the story, or did he just decide that finding gold behind a poster was too far-fetched (like there haven't been stranger items in stranger places in other games)?

The game isn't even pretty that's giving the game too much credit.

How can you know that much about how good or bad a game is when you haven't even scratched the surface.

Would like to give him the benefit of the doubt, but from what I read... he seemed to want to find something bad about it (or just has little patience--most JRPG take a couple hours to really pick up). I will agree the start isn't that great (well first 30m isn't bad, but then like next hour is slow going in comparison--especially if you just run around looking for loose change everywhere).

I went in knowing it had alot of cutscenes/dialogue (all JRPG do, but at times LO does have 'more' at specific instances). Also, combat evolves much, much more the longer you play (as characters progress, new characters are introduced, new items are found, etc). Its start may be 'slow' but it progresses much better than most and is definately my favorite JRPG this generation (but not all that much competition so far to be perfectly honest--still, one of best in years at the very least, imho).

I played Eternal Sonata first, after that I found the cutscenes in Lost Odyssey to be quite brief.

Good point, ohh my did the cutscenes in Eternal Sonaty go on and on.

The gaming media is on their whole bash everything 360 for 3 months kick, after that they will be back to pointing out the negatives on PS3. They seem to go back and forth every few months so they have no credibility in my book, at least not most of them. Pretty much every non professional reviewer of this game loved it. It has not changed much from past JRPGs, it just improved a few things, that is what people wanted, the reviewers are just morons, DMC4 is a last gen game with next gen graphics, but it got a bunch of 8s and 9s across the board from reviewers, so whatever. Take these reviews with a grain of salt.

I hate reviewers, and I hate fanboys. I use bad reviews to bash the 360, you use bad reviews to bash the PS3. You insult the PS3, I insult the 360 (well, at least people like you and I).

Opinions are opinions, and they should stay that way. They should never serve as an influence to us, only our opinions can dictate our lives. If we love a game, then by God Damnit, we're gonna get it.

Enjoy your Lost Odyssey, i'm sure its a fine game. And I don't care if I have to shout that out across the other side of the fence.

"The gaming media is on their whole bash everything 360 for 3 months kick, after that they will be back to pointing out the negatives on PS3."

DMC4 20 minute install, crappy Lost Planet port with another install and you think the media is on some bash 360 crap? Oh get real, there just pointing out valid and true arguments. LO wasn't the big hit M$ wanted it to end up being. Lair wasn't the big hit Sony wanted it to end up being. Everyone is going to have there ups and downs.

"DMC4 is a last gen game with next gen graphics, but it got a bunch of 8s and 9s across the board from reviewers, so whatever. Take these reviews with a grain of salt."

Lost Odyessy > DMC4

IMO, DMC4 deserved lower after beating it.

gambare3429d ago

it's the way they got to earn attention and money

supremacy3429d ago

Bill Gates3429d ago (Edited 3429d ago )

That's two thirds of what makes up a BABOON. Big, and Dumb.......AHAHAHHAHAHHA

NO_PUDding3429d ago

Nill, you are sayign one of gams makes up 2/3 of a baboon.

I can see you ahve low self esteem, but don't shout about it.

Lost Odyssey defitnely wasn't that bad by the way, jokes aside.

Bill Gates3428d ago

Oh brother, where do I begin?.......

I will not knock you for your grammar do to my assumption that English is not your first language, but I would tell you so much more, if I could only understand what tha hell you were trying to say.....AHAHHAHAHHAHAHA
