VGArabia: I just finished FFXIII, and what I can say that it doesn't live up to my expectations. In fact, it isn't as good as Mistwalker's RPG Lost Odyssey, which in my opinion is the best JRPG this generation.
Based on all the complaints about FFXIII I'd say yeah Lost odyssey is better. I played the game and it's one Traditional JRPG and it's one of the best rpgs i've played with Tales of vesperia on next gen consoles.
Well I guess that depends on your opinion. I have played them both and I think FF XIII is a far better game. LO had a good battle system. I played it in 1920x1080 on my PC and even that didn't help the graphics that much. The story was terrible. You know there is a reason why it's sales never reached a million.
That's funny because I wasn't aware there was a PC version of Lost Odyssey... That leads to the question, why are you lying? Hmmm LOL, I know why.
I played LO on 360 and i love it the characters are loveable <3 and the battle system is fun , one thing i really did not like was the loading times i believe now must run better with the full install option i have to try :) FFXIII i only have 2 days playing it on PS3 it is pretty solid and i can not put it down is addictive and the graphics are gorgeous o.o wow :) In the end i love both games but then again i like RPGs a lot is hard for me to find an RPG i don't like :3 BTW N4G should have a OPINION type of news , it would help a lot for stories/blogs like this...
Sorry I got all confused I was thinking of the Last Remenant I bought off Steam. Never played Lost Odyssey my apologies. Please disregard my above post because I don't what I'm talking about.
Fair enough then.
LOLWUT? Lost Odyssey was garbage.
LO was probably the best JRPG i've played on 360 to date. I havn't played FF13 yet, i get my free copy in a few weeks so then i'll pop it in to see. So cud LO be better than FF13? most likely. But I"m gonna hold out on judgement till i play ff13
If you're really into traditional JRPG's then Lost Odyssey is a prime choice, but I personally feel that FFXIII is a brilliant game. I'm not entirely sure why it's CALLED Final Fantasy anything, because other than the presence of chocobo's it has little in common with any of the other games in the series, but I was in awe of the game for its story, battle system, and graphics.
is a great game and imo is the greatest JRPG this generation. FFXIII is a disappointment. Shame on Square-Enix.
Lost Odyssey that's why Exclusives are always better......FFXIII could have been even better if the game was xbox360 exclusive but due to it going Multi ps3 Gimped the game.
Don't feed the troll click disagree, report and move on.
I agreed with him and bubbled him. What he is saying isn't at all accurate but he has spirit.
lol yeah 360 version on multiple disc and 1080p cutscene lol superior my a$$ dammit stop feeding him
I think I too like Lost Odyssey more but both are awesome and neither are anywhere close to best JRPG this gen.
The story in Lost Odessy sucked. The characters were boring, and the graphics were average. However, I liked the turn based system alot better, and I miss it, I wish rpgs in the future still did old school turn based instead of action, but I guess there are enough old schol rpg's to play for the rest of my life, I can deal with the fact that rpgs are dead compared to how good they used to be story and character wise.
"The story in Lost Odessy sucked. The characters were boring" what are you talking about? Lost Odyssey story is one of the best stories in recent memory. Also, the characters are interesting and more human than other characters I have seen in most games.
Yep the story was really good. This guy probs aint even played it.
I thought the characters in Lost Odyssey were pretty good, though I don't understand why some Japanese RPGs always have a child or child-like character. It doesn't make sense "lets go off and butcher monsters, and don't forget to bring the kids"
I Didn't question the kids being there at all. I mean it is their grandchildren and their mother died so they have no one else. Saying that, they were 2 of the 3 characters I found annoying. Them and that damn prince.
no. No it’s not.
I started playing Final Fantasy 10 so that I can see if I would like Final Fantasy 13. Now I'm finding out some people don't like FF13? Lolwut? I'm already like, 50 hours into FF 10. xD
There both awesome, production values go to FF, however, that first fight scene in lost odessy i think was more "blow me away" type of an ordeal.
