I had no idea what Ragnarok Odyssey even was until coming across the demo and I just luv the game!! I luv epic hard boss fights and this game seems like it has a whole lot going on, what is the full game like? does it have online? and how long does it take to finish?

I'm curious too, though my initial impressions of the demo are pretty much the exact opposite, with me hoping there's more to it than the barebones quest structure that seems to be the entire game. Game seems really shallow and I'm hoping it's just the demo giving a poor impression.

It is my fav game atm. The best part about it is the 4 player online co-op, especially against bosses. Weapon and card hunting is addicting imo. There is suppose to be new weapon and missions DLC to be announced too. It is a really good game to have.

I share DJ-Lae's thoughts about the demo. The combat just felt awful to me. As in, you have to watch your character do his move before you can do anything(they feel somehow longer than Monster Hunter!), and there's no sense of progression or chaining to attacks. Maybe I'd have to try a different character class, but considering I picked the one with the highest agility, I was left pretty disappointed with how clunky everything felt. Monster Hunter gets by with its slow animations because every one is totally predictable, and controls are always accurate. Not to mention that tactics and attack placement are so important. This ends up feeling slow and clunky, and the combat is far from tactical from what I could tell.

Really well If I am not a Ragnarok Online Fan I might not like it, then it's like Phantasy Star and Monster Hunter gameplay that attracts me a lot.

Same here. I loved Ragnarok Online and probably have my nostalgia goggles when I see this game. I think this game's "meh" specially if you loved the depth of MH mechanics and was never a fan of Ragnarok Online. In the end it's up to you and thank God there's a demo at the very least.

I am currently playing it. It is pretty good. It stays solid in what it sets out to do, but it is quite generic. Pretty graphics, decent music, and fun h&s fighting. It does have a very shallow story though IMO. I went in blind with this one and I don't regret it. However, I am about halfway through chapter 3 and it is getting very, very repetitive. It is a hack and slash though so that is a given. I would give it like a 6.5 - 7 so far as nothing has blown me away. I doubt the game will have any pinnacle moment to remember it down the road. I think I have seen mostly everything this game offers, but I could be wrong. Just my 2 cents.

My inital impressions of the demo were "meh". Whatever, I got Persona 4: Golden coming in today.

it's fun online but pretty boring solo. the only thing that is bad is sometimes you can't find people to help complete the quest you need (i.e. if you like to play really late at night). and if someone else has a bad connection, it makes others lag until that person gets d/ced

That's pretty much how I felt. I didn't think it was an awful demo, but I felt like the character was still kind of slow and clunky. And there didn't seem to be any real decent combos or attack chains. It could have benefitted from being more like Kingdom Hearts in that respect.

Same here. The game felt kind of like PSO, more than I'd really expected it to. But I still think Phantasy Star Online 2 will be a much better game when it comes out for the VITA.
