Lost Odyssey - The best JRPG yet for the 360

If you're anything like Gameplayer, you'll pop the first disc of Lost Odyssey into your Xbox 360 and start the mantra, "please be better than Blue Dragon, please be better than Blue Dragon..." Yes, Hironobu Sakaguchi (the creator of Final Fantasy) and his new Mistwalker team are at it again, ticking all those fantasy RPG boxes and ensuring that all the cutscenes are long enough to make you want to go to the toilet.

It's Final Fantasy in sheep's clothing, once again. But it's a damn fine looking sheep.

Complete review after the jump...

Talk about not giving credit where credit is do. It is not only best JRPG for the 360 it is the best JRPG for ANY next generation system! And its little brother Blue Dragon is number two on all systems. These two are WAY ahead of everything else. Only thing that has a chance against them is Final fantasy XIII. This game is like Gunstar hero, everywhere you go (will not everywhere, but most places) you see average scores, but the actual players are giving it much higher scores. It is easily the best RPG I have played since FFVII but then again I rally like turn based JRPG's. It looks like the people that rated gunstar hero where influenced by other reviews. And reading the average reviews especially the ones that say its the same old story(what rpg ever had stories like these?), or it's not next gen, you know they are influenced. Question what is a next generation JRPG? It seems when you break it down to the changes that they want the JRPGs are not 'action rpgs' Now I want to know. What retard decided that being a 'action rpg' made you next generation? Last time I checked Action rpgs have been around as long as turn based rpgs. Think outside the box. Stop being a drune!

with ps2 graphics and mechanics!

Yeah it's a good game, but it's not as good as your saying. The have been better RPGs since FF7 than Lost Odyssey. Although Lost Odyssey is a very good game, almost like a FF clone, but to be honest the gameplay graphics are like very good PS2 graphics and the FMV graphics are much much better.

It's about 10 hours each disc and the 4th disc is longer because it has most of the side quests on it.

Only thing that has a chance against them is Final fantasy XIII.

Thats funny, I thought sappy JRPGs weren't supposed to hit the "hardcore " console..... Seems like you all bought it anyways...

kwicksandz3369d ago

The Killer3369d ago (Edited 3369d ago )

Lol so the "best JRPG on 360" can't even get the above 80% in overall reviews? It flopped, getting 6's and 7's across the board.

PS3 has all the JRPG's that people care about. (White Knight, FFXIII, Versus XIII, etc..)

Antan3369d ago

Oops, wrong zone there fella.

George Washington3369d ago

oh really?? which of those games can i go buy to play on my ps3 right now?

George Washington3369d ago (Edited 3369d ago )

gaffyh3369d ago

Folklore is technically an RPG.

SL1M DADDY3369d ago

I started it on my gold account and couldn't finish it. I then brought it to my uncles house and finished it there. it's an OK RPG but nothing to write home about.
