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.
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!"
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.

I only put a few hours into the game last night, but I can tell that I'll be putting quite a few more into it in the future. Here's what I liked:
-Instance based quests
-Crafting system based on collecting items from defeated monsters
-No stat upgrades, game is clearly gear-based
-Card system on your gear has me interested. I like mixing and matching skills. In MonHun, this was accomplished through different armor choices, where this game has a single piece of socketable armor you load skill-cards into.
-You can jump and perform aerial combos. I haven't grasped the combo system quite yet, but there are a lot of moves you can perform.
-Very pretty visuals, definitely one of the best looking portable games I've played to date. (I only have the Vita, not 3DS)
-Easy to pick up and play short missions, great for a portable device
-You can pause, although you need to enter a menu to do so.
-Touch-screen potions and emotes is VERY well done. 99% of the game relies on standard button control, while you drink potions by tapping your quick-slots on the touchscreen.
-Virtually non-existent load times when inside an area, and very short load times to get access to it in the first place. By the time you walk through an area portal, you're already in the next part of the map. No waiting around, which is awesome.
-Very easy to use interfaces.
-Detailed information on skills, cards, items, etc.Read more ›
When you first start the game you will be given a selection of 6 different selectable classes -
Hammersmith (A slow heavy hitting warrior that uses a hammer)
Sword Warrior (A jack of all trades medium speed character that uses a 2h sword)
Assassin (A fast character that dual wields katars)
Cleric (A mix between magic and melee character that uses a shield and 1h mace)
Hunter (An Archer)
and Mage (magic user)
All of these classes are available immediately to you, and each offer their own unique play style that requires a different strategy when using each one. While they do seem to play the same in the very basics (do damage, avoid damage), they will make the game more challenging or easier depending on precisely who you pick. Fortunately, if you don't like your initial class you are given the chance to change it later on, and from that point can change and swap out what class your playing as much as you would like.
When it comes to the game its self, it can seem extremely basic. You pick up a mission from the job board, and immediately head out. The jobs are all pretty simple, you either have to kill X amount of Y, or collect X amount of Y which drop off the mobs you will encounter.Read more ›
My only complaint about the game is the camera. You can get stuck against the wall and have no idea where your character is to get him away from the monsters.
I'll try to update this review as I progress through more chapters, I currently just beat Chapter 3-9.
This past weekend I pretty much played this game non stop. I'm currently on Chapter 8-2. It's a lot of fun playing co-op with other people who are the same rank as you. It's no fun when a high level rank joins your game and just owns everything in sight. Some of the boss fights are really fun. I like the really tall ones where you need to jump several times to reach your target and need to keep yourself "floating" in the same area to attack before running out of AP. And I'm loving the splash potion card. Any potion I use it turns it into an aoe potion.
This will be my final update on the game. I beat this game a few weeks ago and I have still been playing it daily. I only need 3 more cards to collect until I platinium the game. I'm sure this will take a long time since the drop rates on cards can be very low.Read more ›
