A Truly Amazing Gem for a Truly Amazing Time of Gaming.
Let's be honest here, the Playstation 2 was one of the greatest gaming systems of all time not due to the volume of games it had, but because of the quality ones Sony decided not to shrug off. Atlus, who are renowned for their quality RPGs, brings us another amazing game in the form of Odin Sphere.
Odin Sphere is a 2D sidescrolling RPG with an interesting method of storytelling divided among five different character viewpoints. Each of the five characters has their own storyline as well as their own unique repertoire of abilities. The game also sports its Alchemy system, which allows the user to make and brew potions of many varieties to defend yourself or assail your enemies.
Gameplay wise, Odin Sphere sort of goes back to those sidescrolling beat-em-ups you played back in the Arcade when Arcades still existed, giving you that unique feeling of gameplay while delivering unto you the nice nostalgic feel gamers just seem to adore.
Graphically, Odin Sphere looks beautiful, so beautiful in fact that there are certain portions of the game where it actually slows down! This however, is not a general problem as the slowdown is mild (and, in my opinion, sometimes appreciated) and doesn't take away from the experience.
Sound, ah, this game has an incredible soundtrack, and sports some very good voice acting as well. You might even hear some familiar voices while you play as well!
Character wise, this game has very lovable characters, each having their own stories that change them all in some way.
All in all, Odin Sphere is a fantastic RPG and if you like RPGs, this is one of those games you should own.Vollständige Rezension lesen
