"Lost Odyssey is a solid RPG, but sadly, doesn't take any real chances to move the genre forward. It's firmly stuck in the past, and that's going to cause a love/hate relationship with the game. There will be those who love its old school feel, and those who hate it for that same reason. I fall firmly in the middle. While I don't hate the game, I wouldn't say I love it either. It was an enjoyable experience, but not one I think will ever be brought up in "Best. RPG. EVER!" discussions."
