Odin Sphere – Staff Retroview #2

RandomNPC
28 September 2008
  • Excerpt: In a period when many developers shy away from trying new things and instead hold to tried and true formulas for RPGs, games that wander off the beaten path are few and far between. Odin Sphere is one of these few. The game suffers from significant slowdown in some areas and a less than original battle system, but it also offers gorgeous graphics and a deep, memorable storyline.

Why 2D games Rock!

  • Conclusion: Odin Sphere is honestly a game that must be experienced in order to truly decide whether it is a game for you. I know that in a growing market of every genre imaginable that sometimes lesser-known games fall to the sidelines and are not enjoyed until much later in their gaming life. Hence, titles like Shadow of the Colossus are lost in the mix and only a few gamers in the beginning get to appreciate the game without impending fanboys and would be supporters.

Odin Sphere – Staff Review

RandomNPC
17 September 2007
  • Excerpt: Odin Sphere is a game which goes to great lengths to look and feel like a child’s storybook. The game is presented as a series of stories being read by a young girl in her family’s attic, with each book being the story of a different protagonist, the whole tale coming together as their stories intersect.

  • Conclusion: Despite a few nagging issues this may be one of the best games available for the PS2. Between the cool graphics and the solid plot this is one game that you'll probably come back to more than once.

  • Excerpt: Odin Sphere is far from normal. While I first thought this 2D action-RPG was a monotonous bore, it slowly grew on me as a nuanced and inventive entry to the genre. There is a surprising amount of unique things to do in this wild hack and slasher, but after a while, that familiar feeling of repetition begins to creep back, and the final judgment is uncertain of just how good Odin Sphere may or may not be. Early in the game, it just doesn’t feel like there’s enough to do.
