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 (PS2) Review

411mania.com
27 July 2007
  • Summary: Is the innovative RPG that'll topple the juggernaut off the top of the mountain? Is it a complete waste of your gaming dollar? Is it even an accurate interpretation of the Norse mythology from which it heavily borrows? Answers to all those questions is a resounding "no." is equal parts good and bad, with pick-up-and-play mechanics and a unique visual style duking it out with brutal crafting systems and a dialogue script soaking in melodrama.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Offering up a battle system that would seem more at home in a side-scrolling brawler than an RPG and a storytelling style that allows you to play as multiple main characters, Odin Sphere offers up a very different, and flawed adventure for RPG fans. It allows you to play as five characters, telling their stories one after the other, as the game’s adventure unfolds inside a storybook.
