A grindfest, but a FUN grindfest

  • Summary: One of my biggest complaints about the JRPG genre is the fact that many refuse to innovate, period. They prefer to rely on formula, and apparently fans seem to like it. Unfortunately, I don't.

Ragnarok Rashōmon

  • Excerpt: An ancient prophecy holds that several disasters will ravage the world, and that the survivors will become kings. The destruction of the Valentine Kingdom falls in accordance with this prophecy, with rival nations battling over the Cauldron, a relic that gave the Kingdom great power.

And the PS2 keeps chugging

  • Excerpt: Every so often a game comes along that makes us step back and reevaluate our infatuation with polygons. We are reminded that creative art direction can be infinitely more powerful than the latest cell processor.

Good game

  • Excerpt: Odin Sphere deserves 8 in my opinion. Its a good game, no doubt, with good gameplay mechanics, but the fighting seems a bit too flimsy with unresponsive buttons (at least for me). Gorgeous graphics and brilliant stroyline though. Graphics:10 Storyline:8 Gameplay:7 Audio: 9

Odin-tastic! xD

  • Summary: Great multiple character story's with an enchanting music score and very resourceful way of using food to level up your health! You can use alchemy to make potions from seemingly useless over abundant items and gain weapon experience from the phozons released depending how large you make the 10's...

  • Summary: While the storyline is engaging and the art is beautiful the game does get pretty repetive later on, but it's definitely worth checking out.

2D Never dies

Ricardo Gaspar, Amazon
7 September 2007
  • Summary: One of the things vanillaware gets right in almost all their games is the amazing 2D sprite art coupled with parallax scrolling backgrounds and an amazing soundtrack. And Odin Sphere is no different. The story's main focus is love, war and power.

Another late PS2 gem.

Mr. G. Sturdy, Amazon
7 September 2007
  • Summary: Yet another late PS2 title that continues to show-up the lack of decent titles on the PS3. Wonderful 2Dartwork envelopes a sometimes confusing but never less than enjoyable fantasy storyline. Fans of Disgaea can get a new fix here!
