No AI teammates for offline play. It's nice Ad Hoc and Infrastructure are included, especially because few games have Ad Hoc on the Vita, for some freaking reason, but finding people at your level early on is impossible. You have to play the game by yourself before you can be of comparable strength to other players. The combat system is OK, but not great. It's like countless other tedious JRPGs before it, where you just accept quests and go through the same areas over and over fighting different enemies. There was some popular game on the PSP where you had giant laser swords that was like this, but that game had AI teammates. I want to be able to have a good experience offline on my portable game without having to rely on lots of single player grinding and then finally being able to do co-op in order to have any amount of fun.

So there is really only one way to describe this game, and that is Bland, its the definition of eh Japanese RPGs. The devs were not content to just be bland though, they've gone a step further to make things stupid, Mage, and Cleric both can only cast after a melee combo, a mage should NEVER be in ANY way reliant on Melee, that ruins the point of a mage, there now just flashy melee people, a fireball for a mage here is not as useful as a warrior with a flame weapon. So you have 4 warriors, ranger, and rogue, assuming rouge is much more than a fast warrior, I didn't have time to test, honestly ruining the mage was enough to tick me off, and convince me the developers are incompetent. If this is any example of how Ragnarok Online 2 is, then dear god I hope it dies, and that RO1 continues to grow, RO Was actually pretty entertaining in both mechanics, and art style, everything here tells me that they just wanted to make a Multiplayer JRPG, and just picked whatever seemed popular and then did it poorly. BLANDNESS THY NAME IS RAGNAROK ODYSSEY!
Avoid this, and go play RO on the DS much better title, and a good example of the original.
Well i thought this game was a RPG not a cheap version of Dynasty Warriors without being fun. its really just pick up a quest go to a non free roam zone and kill them go to next area rinse and repeat very boring. played it 1 hour sent it back very terrible addition to the vita wish they could make a good rpg for vita but til then this game is just bad.
