Product Description

Famed game producer Hironobu Sakaguchi of Mistwalker game studio, along with feelplus Inc. and Microsoft Game Studios, leads a staff of gaming masters to bring a truly next-generation role-playing experience to Xbox 360 in Lost Odyssey.

Lost Odyssey is the story of Kaim, an immortal character who has lived more than 1,000 years and doesn't remember his past and doesn't know where his future lies. Throughout Kaim's journey, a handful of characters will join him on an odyssey to discover their intricate past and destiny, leading players through a dramatic story of massive scale. "Lost Odyssey" will feature breathtaking visuals and an epic adventure made possible only by the power of Xbox 360.

An Engaging and Unparalleled Emotional Story
With story sequences penned by award-winning Japanese novelist Kiyoshi Shigematsu in cooperation with producer Hironobu Sakaguchi, "Lost Odyssey" sets a new benchmark for the RPG genre with a combination of true-to-life cinematics and the story of an immortal man who has been suffering in many ways for 1,000 years. Players will witness Kaim's life as he lives through many generations, becomes part of numerous families, falls in and out of love, and confronts all of the conflicts that arise. Kaim's struggles are set in a world that is on the verge of a "mystical industrial revolution," where mankind has attained dark powers.

Innovative Gameplay Features
Lost Odyssey blends massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) elements into the game's traditional RPG system, enabling players to make strategic decisions for a more immersive and deep gameplay experience.

Massive scope and engrossing environments
The massively scoped worlds, memorable characters and epic story line of Lost Odyssey play out like an intense and unsettling blockbuster action film. Heading up the artistic demands of the title is famed Japanese comic artist Takehiko Inoue; renowned composer Nobuo Uematsu has been recruited to create a contemporary soundtrack.

Realistic Graphics in Next-Generation Gaming
Powered by Unreal Engine 3 technology, Lost Odyssey boasts stunning visual fidelity and rendering quality. The Unreal Engine 3 technology pushes high-definition visual designs to a higher level and brings out the smallest details in the largest battles. Gamers will experience a rich dynamic world with an unprecedented level of detail. Users can experience the true-to-life gameplay and facial expressions of emotionally distressed characters in the world of Lost Odyssey.

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting Lost in an Odyssey February 19, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
One prominent feature of JRPGs is the emo male protagonist. Only a handful of games break this mold. One such game would be Lunar: Silver Star Story and Eternal Blue. While Lunar held to the same themes as most JRPGs by discussing the importance of friendship, the battle of Good versus Evil, it maintained a general sense of joviality. Even when things inevitably went dark, the characters kept their happy-go-lucky attitude.

Lost Odyssey is the antithesis of Lunar.

Kaim is your typical tortured soul protagonist, except that, unlike most others who write bad poetry while metaphorically slitting their wrists and bemoaning their wretched life, he actually has a reason to be. He's an immortal, apparently cursed to live forever and has already lived 1,000 years. So, when the game begins with a climactic battle involving a meteor, he's had many lifetimes of sorrow, guilt, death and tragedy that would obviously make anyone's existence incredibly dour. If you're a sucker for sad stories, Kaim's tale will undoubtably tug at your heart strings.

Basically, two stories are going on at once in Lost Odyssey. There's the current story that I'll get to in a bit. There's also the back story that comes flitting through in written form every once in awhile. You see, Kaim suffers from another JRPG staple: the amnesiac hero. He, and other immortals like him, don't remember much about their past for some reason. And so, as Kaim continues his quest, events will trigger memories and you have the option of reading them. These little vignettes are written by Kiyoshi Shigematsu, an award-winning Japanese novelist, and it shows.

These 34 stories, in fact, often overshadow the main story line.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprise! February 14, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got my copy of the game and I have to say I am shocked. The game consists of four discs. I'm on the fourth disc of the game at the moment, and the story is amazing. The graphics are a lot better than what I would expect from a JRPG and the cinematic scenes are even better (I am not playing the game in HD, so its hard to give a comparison, but I would say the graphics are on par with Gears of War) . It looks like the character designers spent a WHOLE lot of time doing each and every character ( I also like how every character has his/her own name, like Quest 64 lol) The battle system is a normal turn based battle system with some "press the buttons with good timing" feature that makes it not as boring as most turn based battle systems, the battles in the game are like candy for your eyes (the kind of candy that will give you a mind orgasm every once and a while). The farther I get into the game the deeper and more complex the story gets. I didn't know about this game until a few days before it released. I am so happy that I pre-ordered it. If you own an Xbox 360 and like RPGs, then I highly recommend purchasing this game. It feels a lot like a Final Fantasy game, but the story is unique and complex. The memories and the story combined will have you riding on an emotional roller-coaster. I have already been sucked into the game and I don't think I will be able to play many other video games until I finish this one. The sound and music in the game is also excellent; it adds more suspense to the battles and cinematic action scenes in the game and makes the whole game feel like a good "epic" movie. Some of the boss battles that I've experienced are pretty challenging, and you really have to strategize to beat them (A lot like Final Fantasy). Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Game! February 20, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is such a wonderful game. Yes, it really does nothing to improve upon the genre, but this is part of its strength, in my opinion. Lost Odyssey has returned the RPG's focus to the most important aspect of role-playing: a compelling story. It doesn't hurt that the visuals are nothing short of stunning. As others have said, if you loved FF VII and FF X, you'll like this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Game. This is what FF 13 should have been December 3, 2010
By G Ninja
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a 30 year old gamer, and this really brings me back to the late 80's and early 90's. It's classic JRPG. When we think of classic JRPGs we think of a game being story driven, having a great battle system, and challenging. This game has all these elements. You really need to be prepared to commit 30+ hours to enjoy this game. It gets better and better as you go through the game. Pick this game up, you will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest XBOX 360 RPG November 15, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
While the original XBOX was known for some great cult hit RPGs, the 360 has been vastly lacking in exclusives. We've had Oblivion, which ran much smoother on PS3 and PC, Fallout 3, which suffered a similar fate, and Fable 2, which wasn't nearly as good as everyone had hoped. Let me make one thing clear: Lost Odyssey is the best adult RPG on the XBOX 360.

The games graphics were incredible, I know it sounds cliched, but within the first half hour alone their were two times that I didnt know I was supposed to start playing after a cutscene. I just stared at the screen waiting for more. The graphics are really that good.

The sound is incredible, from every step Kaim takes to the sound of a sword slicing through flesh to the tiny clank of mail rubbing against each other, the sound is incredible. The soundtrack also has a reminiscent feel to it, really taking you to theyre world.

Gameplay, which people argue is its weakest point, in my opinion is its best. This game was developed by the original designer of Final Fantasy. It plays like every turn based RPG should. Anyone who complains about this is an idiot; its not the games fault, its yours. Don't buy a turn based RPG if you dont LIKE turn based RPGs! Regardless, I have to legitimately say, this game is the best turn based RPG ever. Ive played every kind, from Final Fantasy, to Wild Arms, to .Hack, Ive played them all. This is the epitome of the genre.

Story wise, dont even try. Ive played alot of good games, some which I really do believe are better than this. But as a grown man, I am not ashamed to say this: This game made me cry. I won't go any further. Thats all you need to know. It really is that good.

If you have a 360, do yourself a favor and buy this game. It is so cheap nowadays, and it is the only multi-disc game on 360, which must say something. Its huge. Your fifteen bucks will keep you entertained for months.
