VG Music Spotlight: "Battle Theme" - Lost Odyssey

"Lost Odyssey is one of my favorite JRPGs of all time and with Nobuo Uematsu composing the score of course the music is just as legendary as the story being told in the game. The Battle Theme being one of the main highlights of the OST definitely deserved a spotlight." - FirstDropShow

Um no. The characters and battle system was extremely boring and generic. The only good thing about the game was the battle theme. It was really amazing. Everything else was just generic.

I don't understand how everyone can go around and love this game but bash ff113. Im srry but the characters were more developed in ff13. The music was really beautiful. "Blinded by light" and in 13-2, "Knight of the goddess" are beautiful songs. Battle system was more active. It was just overall the better game.

"Best" is subjective, it was *awesome*. Because Lost Odyssey was much more old school than 13--it was very much like an old Square Soft RPG in HD. The characters personalities were much better than they were in FF13. Admittedly, the costume designs were a bit ridiculous, but they may have something to do with it being the same character designer from FF12!

All together, if it wasn't for technical issues and this game only being available on Xbox360 where the JRPG market isn't as big, this game could've totally got more success and critical reception that it deserved.

In the back of my deilusional mind, I still pray for Lost Odyssey or Lost Odyssey 2 on PS3.

Are you serious? Honestly, I can't tell if you're joking. I think you're just parroting words you've heard before, without understanding what they mean. "More developed", "more active".. there's no way you actually understand the meaning behinds those words if you've described FFXIII with them.

Lost Odyssey was one of the worst RPGs this gen. Mistwalker just doesn't know how to make good games.

Seriously, Eternal Sonata is way better than Lost Odyssey as well as a lot of other RPGs this gen.

Overall, this gen sucks when it comes to RPGs. Even the low budget JRPGs are looking better than games like FF13.

amen :D i couldn't even finish the first DVD of Lost Odyssey...

Megaman_nerd2541d ago (Edited 2541d ago )

I agree too. Tales of Vesperia, Eternal Sonata were both better rpg's than Lost Odyssey and even their metacritic scores reflect it.

It's Uematsu.. would you expect anything less than awesomeness?

The music was incredible but the game as a whole was a miss. I actually stopped playing it for about a year and forced myself to finish it. Still has one of the coolest opening cinematics though.
