Product Description

Edition: Mercenary Edition

Amazon.com

Ragnarok Odyssey is an Action Role-Playing game (RPG) for PlayStation Vita, that is set in a unique environment based in Norse mythology. Loosely built upon the world of the South Korean MMORPG Ragnarok Online, Ragnarok Odyssey challenges players to protect their home of Rune Midgard from a rampaging mass of invading giants, set on destruction. To do so they will have to master a challenging battle system full of fluid combos and chain attacks, and enlist the help of friends online. Additional features include: deep character customization, six job classes, and beautiful cutscenes that take advantage of the PS Vita's superior graphics capabilities.

The special Mercenary Edition contains a variety of exclusive physical items. See the complete list of these below.

Fight Against the Giants, and Survive!

Since ancient times, mankind and the Isolated Land were always divided by what was called the "Thousand Year Mountains" -- a range of mountains even a flying dragon couldn't cross. Naturally, mankind had thus always been curious about the seemingly inaccessible Isolated Land, wondering what secrets it may hold. And in an ironic twist of fate, that curiosity and thirst for knowledge and adventure would be fulfilled in a most unwelcome way. With a thunderous sound that shook the entire land, the Thousand Year Mountains came crumbling down, unveiling ancient ruins from the era of the gods. People could finally bear witness to what had been hidden away in the Isolated Land for nearly an eternity - and unfortunately, it turned out to be hundreds and thousands of giants. It became immediately apparent that these were not friendly creatures as they mercilessly turned cities to rubble with mere swings of their gigantic arms, crushing families and histories alike.

Now, the kingdom of Rune Midgard is fighting valiantly for the survival of their country against the invading giants. The war has been fierce thus far, with massive casualties, but the resilient humans have managed to keep the giants at bay - if only temporarily. In an effort to prevent any recurrence of this massive tragedy, those in power ordered an enormous fortress called "The Shield" built at the entrance to the Isolated Land, to stand as a last barrier of hope and help fend off any inevitable future invasions. The residents of the kingdom may never return to their once peaceful way of life, but they will fight for whatever measure of prosperity they can still find. Their one and only reason to be has been ingrained into every citizen and turned into a rallying cry that echoes throughout the land: "Fight against the giants, and survive!"

Gameplay

Ragnarok Odyssey is an Action RPG set in an original world based on Norse mythology where a battle is being waged between humans and giants after the fall of the gods had previously separated the races. Players create their characters from over 20,000 possible combinations based on customizable physical features, then select one of six specialized job classes. The game's real-time battles are fast and furious as players can fling enemies skyward, follow them into the air for gravity-defying strikes, then finish off the combo by smacking them clear across the stage. Gameplay is driven forward by story-advancing and optional quests, and up to four players can fight together in online co-op mode.

Mercenary Edition Items Included

  • Ragnarok Odyssey for PlayStation Vita
  • CD game soundtrack
  • The "Guild of Midgard Mercenary Guide" containing art and strategy tips
  • A pack of 10 monster cards

5.0 out of 5 stars Ragnarok Odyssey sets the standard for Vita box sets November 1, 2012
By Cheska
Edition:Mercenary Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
XSeed had some of the best overall created box sets for the PSP during its run, and their first effort for the Vita title Ragnarok Odyssey, they could not have done a better job. The box is crafted out of shiny, bright and poppy aluminum styled material that shines and looks beautiful on the shelf. Inside, you will find a "Mercenary Guide, collector's CD album, a set of playing cards, and the game itself.

Aside from the immaculate box, the first thing that drew my eye was the Mercenary Guide: Guide of Midgard. At first, I assumed it would be more an art-book than anything, but to my woe and surprise, it was a very detailed miniature guidebook that spans 92 pages. The pictures are clean, the design is nice, and I can see it being really helpful the more I get into the game. I know many Vita owners, including myself, are really irritated and bummed that the Vita does not come with manuals (digital only), but this totally fixes the problem for this game and then some. World maps, area maps, character and monster bios, and extra info makes this purchase all the more worth it. The book itself is made of outstanding paper materials. This is really a treat.

After the joy of looking through the book, I quickly tore the plastic off of the CD case to see get a hear of the album, and the music is just about what I expected from a game of this genre. It hits all the same tonal areas out of what you would expect from Monster Hunter for instance, but it keeps a more anime tone to match the visual aspect of the game. The theme is good but nothing that inspired. I've only listened fully to about 6 tracks and skimmed through the rest, but it's decent for a random listen and it's better than I expected. I would say the slip cover case it more inspired and provoking of love than the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars RPG to go! November 1, 2012
By V. Sun
Edition:Mercenary Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I received the Mercenary Edition of Ragnarok Odyssey (hereon abbreviated to RO) earlier today and am glad I picked this game up. From the get-go, a few things resonate this games predecessor Ragnarok Online, but is different enough that it doesn't feel old or outdated. Gameplay is structured around the completion of picked up missions/quests, which are obtained from either the guild's or pub's counter. Unfortunately, there aren't any additional cities/towns to explore and this may disappoint some players.

In regards to how the box or bonuses look, I won't be covering it as others have already done so. However, for those collectors out there or those who want to gift this, the extras are nice for the extra 10 USD (especially when other games easily charge 20+ USD for extras/preorder bonuses).

Experiencing all the missions in RO took me roughly 70 hours; that aside, there are still many hidden crafting quests that I have not finished finding so I cannot say that I've fully completed this game. The drop rates for most items are fairly decent and frequent that I don't really find myself getting annoyed unless it's that rare boss material/drop. Progress may feel a bit slow to some, but I honestly liked the pace since it gave me time to polish up my timing and learn new combos.

There is a trading feature that wasn't entirely obvious and utilizes the PSV app called Near. As far as I can tell currently, you can only trade one item at a time. The nice thing about this system is that you don't really lose the item itself as a copy is sent to the recipient, but an individual character may only have 5 items obtained from Near. Any additional ones will require you to sell off a previously picked up one to make room for another.

Overall, it is a fun game that any RPGer or MMO gamer will enjoy (especially since it's portable). Recommended.

THE GAME
Ragnarok Odyssey isn't a traditional JRPG, it isn't a story-driven game, and it isn't for everyone. This is important to note before setting any expectations for this game. It's a lighthearted, quest-based, and combat-focused game that is designed specifically for a handheld. Progression isn't based on character levels, but instead on loot and gear. The level of difficulty varies based on quest and character class.

There are a lot of reviews out there that rate this game based on how it compares to other games, which I think is pretty ridiculous. I'll be honest. When I got my Vita, Ragnarok Odyssey wasn't a game I was targeting. In fact, I hadn't even heard of the game until a few days before its release. However, I was pleasantly surprised with how fun and inviting it is as a handheld game. I'd go as far as saying it's one of my favorite Vita games so far.

If you're the kind of gamer that's looking for a lighthearted yet surprisingly deep action RPG, Ragnarok Odyssey is worth a try. It can be repetitive, and it can also be tons of fun, but it's definitely not for everyone. Don't go into this game thinking it's something else. There's a town hub where you can buy, sell, and trade loot, get quests, and customize your character. The bulk of the game is questing and combat. The quest designs can range in difficulty, and enemies are your typical beastly RPG baddies. The bosses are pretty awesome.

I recommend this game to anyone who's interested in a fun, lighthearted portable experience.

THE MERCENARY EDITION
The booklet was a pretty big help since I honestly had no idea what I was doing when I first started playing. I also am a fan of artbooks and concept art, so I like the addition of the book. Honestly, for $10 extra, this was a great deal for me.
