Excerpt: Odin Sphere has garnered a lot of attention so far. Most games are announced well in advance and take time to finally reach the store shelves. Odin Sphere has done exactly the opposite, with its original announcement only a few months ago, and the difference from release in Japan to release in North America only a mere five days. All of these things don't give the fans time to cool off from their original excitement.
Conclusion: For those gamers who think there’s nothing worthwhile to play on the Playstation 2, they need to go out and pick up this title. Not having played 2D games in awhile, I had my doubts about this title, but as you can see, Atlus and Vanillaware made sure this was a memorable experience. This title boast exceptional depth in its gameplay, rich graphics, and story that will have you playing this game multiple tiles.
Excerpt: Back in 1997, Atlus released an Action RPG for the Sega Saturn known as Princess Crown. It was never well known and was never released to US shores, primarily due to how the console flopped in the United States. However, it spawned a cult classic, and 10 years later, a game called Odin Sphere is released, developed by newcomer Vanillaware (who recently released Grim Grimoire) and published by Atlus.
Excerpt: With the PS3 grabbing most of the attention and struggling through the traditional post-launch game draught, it is great to see top-tier games still being released for the PS2. Odin Sphere is a name that probably is not all that well known outside the enthusiast community, but it is one that everyone probably should. Visuals are always the first thing to grab attention and Odin Sphere does it remarkably well.
Conclusion: Gorgeous from top to bottom, simultaneously old-school and yet nicely updated and an absolute joy to play Odin Sphere is a monumental achievement in art design and execution. Now if we could just get it all in HD...
Excerpt: I hope you didn't pack up your PS2 after finishing God of War 2 because there is yet another reason to put your hands on the old dual shock controller. That reason is Odin Sphere. This game can really be described in four simple words: Breath of fresh air. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s how I feel when I sit down to play Odin Sphere. While a lot of the game's concepts arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t entirely revolutionary, they are done right.
