    A game with no flaws worth paying attention to. An amazingly enjoyable adventure, and beautifully spun tale.

    Rated on April 20, 2008 by roseice

    Odin Sphere has some of the most enjoyable gameplay I've experienced. It's very fun and has a system you want to return to and keep playing. The Phozon, Psypher and HP leveling system is ingenius, and...

    Alright, upon reaching Chapter 4 of Gwendolyn's story, I finally got to see the sheer depth of this amazingly gorgeous graphical and epic tale. In the beginning you didn't have much for special abilit...

    A kiss from Goddess of Death.

    Rated on May 24, 2007 by TriangleHard

    It seems Gamespot is rather stingy when it comes to side scrolling RPG with Norse mythology theme. Both Valkyrie Profile received rather unimpressive rating from Gamespot and Odin Sphere again receive...

    Refreshing & Ambitious with little to complain about!

    Rated on May 25, 2007 by lazurusKfP

    Everyone seems to obscure this game by focusing on 2 points which are present albeit in small portions: 1. Slowdown 2. Difficulty In reviewing this game I can honestly say that the slowdown has...

    Simply brilliant, brilliantly simple...A beautiful game in every way. The power of sprites prevails over polygons.

    Rated on May 26, 2007 by dreamsteel

    This game is stunningly beautiful. It is a testament to the possibilities of sprite rendered graphics. It's basically a side-scrolling action game with RPG elements. Not a complex game by any means...

    Odin Sphere is an amazingly beautiful RPG that grows on you.

    Rated on May 26, 2007 by sa_jcfan

    Odin Sphere is hands down the most beautiful looking game since Okami. It makes a 2D side scroller look cool again. Along with the great presentation is an engaging storyline that links the 5 main cha...

    Spellbinding, universally engaging, and meticulously crafted—this is what video game magic is all about.

    Rated on June 27, 2007 by liquidShake

    The next generation of game consoles is already among us. However, that fails to stop the flow of quality titles still coming out of the woodwork for Sony’s old system. This notion is no better proven...

    One of the last great RPGs for the PS2

    Rated on May 28, 2007 by Spike_Foxx

    One more time Atlus doesn't disappoint (even if they just localized it). Anyone looking for a good 40-50 hour, just plain fun RPG romp would do well to run out a snag a copy of this game. Unlike most ...
