Summary: The game looks amazing for a ps vita game. You can customize your character with all the equipment the game has to offer. Each equipment looks different and you can change the colors! The only drawback is the game is pretty linear. You just go to the quest shop and do your mission and repeat. Over and over and over and over again.
Summary: This game is a lot of fun but after playing for a solid 10 or even after beating the game gets kinda old because there isn't much variety to the monsters you face or the moves used. On the other hand, I loved the game for the fact it was a hack and slash and even being able to play with your friend either online or with ad-hoc.
Summary: I like RO because of the multiplayer elements, but I also like the game because it is really fun. A lot of people don't like the leveling system, but I'm fine with it. I've heard a lot of people call it a "low-budget Monster Hunter", but I've never played MH so I can't really say. The one thing I don't really like is that the Archer class is absolute garbage, but hey, that's just a personal let down, as I usually always play with archers.
Summary: This game is awesome! It reminds me a whole lot of the first Phantasy Star online...simple town hub with several shops, and then the rest of the game is basically built around doing quests. There's a bit of story but nothing too deep, so don't buy this expecting a deep, story driven jrpg..just buy it if you want well done, quality combat and multiplayer fun!
RO is one of the better titles available for the Vita

Summary: Slick graphics, a smooth combat system, and gameplay reminiscent of Monster Hunter on the PSP, Ragnarok Odyssey delivers a solid Vita title that fans of the genre will want in their collection. The gameplay is there, but I question its longevity. I'm a huge fan of the MonHun games, so I'll be comparing the two a little bit throughout my review. I only put a few hours into the game last night, but I can tell that I'll be putting quite a few more into it in the future.
Summary: For any one who is familiar with or looking for a game that has a similar style to Monster Hunter, this game might be for you, but it should be noted that while it does have elements reminiscent of Monster Hunter it lacks the difficulty and selection of customization, and couples it with styles of Korean MMORPGs.
Summary: I was really looking forward to this game before it was released. Then the poor reviews came in and I lost interest in the game. I'm really glad I decided to buy this game. I don't mind repetitive games since I've played several mmo's over the years, and I don't mind linear games since I usually lose interest in sand box type of games. A lot of people don't like how you only level after completing a chapter, but it keeps the game challenging.
Summary: Amongst many weeaboo jrpgs and dungeon crawlers comes Ragnarok Odyssey, descending from South Korean MMO Ragnarok Online, Odyssey brings a helluva game to the table for fans of Phantasy Star, Monster Hunter, God Eater, etc., you get the drift. The PS Vita's OLED screen shows the beautiful artwork and detail put into this game, sporting bright colors and vibrant scenery that looks so good you might just want to stare at it for a while (something I haven't done since...
Summary: I bought the game through the PSN and honestly, the game is really nice. I do not regret buying the game. Of course you cannot compare it to the RO Online... but the game still is pretty good in my opinion. Cons: -One big disadvantage it has over the Online version, is the fact that you do not level up by killing monsters, you level up Ranks, that you only obtain by completing the Chapters, giving you a limit of Rank 10 (10 Chapters :P) -Also, armors are only obtained...
Summary: I only have logged on less than a couple of hours on this game but I can already tell this is going to take awhile to finish enough to satisfy me. I wanted a game that can kill time. Ragnarok Odyssey delivers that wonderfully to me with all it's "busy work" missions as I like to call them and of course the main story-line missions when I get tired of them and want something new to distract me.
