Summary: I love RPGs and have played (and liked) the majority of Final Fantasy games. However, Lost Odyssey is one of the worst RPGs I have ever played. I would hesitate to even call it an RPG; my idea of an RPG is being able to roam freely and do things in your own time.
Summary: What a load of crap this game is. It is very stagnant, takes ages to do anything and the combat system is one of the worst I have ever seen. Not a big fan of FF by any means, but personally I would rather play that, than troll through FOUR discs of (what is actually pretty good CGI) an interactive...
Summary: I don't normally write reviews (there are plenty already on here), however I feel so strongly about this game I just have to despite reiterating points already made.

Summary: Basically a long, minimally interactive movie. This might be ok, but the movie is badly acted, badly directed, has a terrible script, and makes no sense much of the time. The game looks pretty, but the engine is clunky - character movement looks ugly, for example.
Summary: I am a big fan of rpg's, in particular the final fantasy games, oblivion,and blue dragon. So I bought lost odyssey with high hopes that it would have the same excellent storyline, characterisation and gameplay of the previously mentioned games. Sadly, I found it a let down.
Summary: Argh. This overblown hyped up overly pleased with itself game contains every design that became outdated 2 generations ago. Where it doesn't ccontain archaic design it tries t reinvent the bloody wheel, and gives you little time to learn. If you buy this game prepare to suffer many cheap deaths.
Excerpt: For Final Fantasy Fans only. This game is a real drag. I managed 2 hours before I couldn't take any more. For the first 5 or so fights you enter you have to sit through painful Tutorials where you don't get to learn by doing the required action.
