Lost Odyssey Review
- Reviewed on:
Lost Odyssey doesn't rewrite the rules for turn-based role-playing games, but its great story and minor formula tweaks will keep you entertained.

I can't believe the people who mark this game down because of techinical problems or that it has nothing new. Well first of all, the loading, at most, can take about 20-25 seconds, at most. Secondly, you barely notice ... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
For quite some time there was no decent release of traditional JRPG. On the last genration of games we had to stand with Final Fantasy X, Xenosaga, and a few others. None of those games had a good story and they were als... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
