I would have rated this game higher. It has excellent graphics, a decent story line, and engaging game play. Unfortunately, a few things drop it down: You have to sit through extremely long cut scenes, the build up before fighting drags on forever, and load times are slow. All in all, it's a typical Japanese RPG ala Final Fantasy, but not as good. It's complex turn-based fighting system is not easy to learn. Also, you'd better learn quick because the first two boss fights can be difficult and frustrating. If you're not adept at this type of gaming you'll find yourself playing boss fights over and over before you can progress in the game. Some may enjoy this, but I don't.
This game is pretty cool and very unique. The story line to me is a little sappy but it plays out nicely as you get into the game. This is very long game compared to other games. You get to know the characters verry well. Its also Kind of cool that they spilt the screne when the characters are talking in cutscenes. Lost ODyssey is a turn based game with active role to it too. You will never find yourself bored because every battle plays out differently. This game can get annoying when the bosses keep beating you but its one of the best RPGs. Good characters, Good storyline, Good game.
