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.Read more ›
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.
