'Lost Odyssey' A Strong RPG for Xbox 360 - Poughkeepiejournal Review

There was a time when Traditional turn-based Japanese role playing games were only developed for Nintendo consoles and Sony PlayStations.

Times have changed.

With Xbox 360 sales in Japan still struggling to eclipse the one-million mark, producer Hironobu Sakaguchi of Mistwalker game studio, and creator of the "Final Fantasy" series, has brought the genre back to Microsoft's console with "Lost Odyssey."

You play as Kaim, an immortal who has lived for over a thousand years. In the introduction to the game, you are fighting in an intense battle between Magic Republic of Uhra and Khent, when out of nowhere a huge meteor appears in the horizon and starts raining lava upon the battlefield - leaving no survivors besides you and another immortal named Seth.

LO finally getting some loving I see. Great game. Love it.

MaximusPrime3973d ago

i like final fantasy 7. Hope to see it on PS3 soon.

decapitator3973d ago

That will depend on how well FXIII and Versus do on the PS3 in terms of sales. If it is very successful, am sure we will see it someday. If not, is very unlikely.

RecSpec3973d ago

Haha, what? Sales of FFXIII will be huge, being unsuccessful is impossible. Saleswise anyways. But that doesn't necessarily mean that there will be a FF7 for PS3, unless it's off the store.

I guess that shows how good LO is, if it is in the same conversation as FF.

If Super Smash Bros Brawl sold that well, I can't imagine how good MGS4 or FXIII and Versus will. Just look at how much DMC4 sold in Japan.

FF will sell just by name alone... a lot like Halo.
They're franchises with a huge fan base

Yep, loving this game so far.

Yes I must say its good but to say its the best RPG I wont agree Mass effect and Oblivion where also good. But I can say that LO is definitely great its one of the games which you can compare in quality of entertainment with Onimusha, Hitman Blood Money. I mean these games where great but all will not agree that they are AAA and but some would say that they are one of the best games ever made so is the case with LO.
I can definitely say if you have a 360 and Eternal Sonata and Blue Dragon didnt fulfilled your JRPG dreams this game will surely do it.

damn i really, really really want this game! it's probably the first game i get when i pick up my 360

I liked the idea of Odyssey from the start but i wasn't terrible keen that it was a turn based RPG.I bought this knowing there was every chance i just wouldn't be able to get on with it.

I can honestly say that i have now been converted to how satisfying turn base can be.Maybe it's this game though that has converted me.Give it a shot, like me you'll probably end up loving the hell out of LO
