    Lost Odyssey Trash/Mediocre

    http://www.metacritic.com/games/plat...60/lostodyssey

    So, Like always I never buy a game before reviews unless im 100% positive it will be good (Mass Effect).

    So far it looks like this game sucks and im not gonna buy it. I guess i'll have to wait for FF13 for PS3.

    Edit: Actually I hope they release a demo and GI review. So far the reviews seem to think this style of RPG is old school and not as fun as it used to be. But some player reviews and blogs seem to think the game is really good and urge to buy the game to make Mistwalker is 1st party company.

    I hate IGN almost as much as I hate GameSpot, they can suck my balls.

    I rent when reviews aren't so good (like this game). But I don't go purely on reviews, they just help me make a decision.

    Basically, if you like the old school FF's (I through to X), there is a big chance you will love Lost Odyssey. Its a turn based JRPG through and through.

    Clearly they don't like it because they think "Old School" turn-based RPG's are no fun anymore. Nothing but an opinion, not a fact. I couldn't care for IGN either, not much different than the other sites, just another editor's opinion. It wouldn't surprise me if Final Fantasy 14 was turn-based, with them hopping all over it and easily forgiving it for returning to it's roots.

    Lost Odyssey clearly appeals to those who can still appreciate the old strategic ways of traditional turn-based RPG's, like a nice a game of chess. I'm definitely getting this game.

    Yea people dont seem to like JRPG's anymore. I never loved but the games I did play I liked it. The hardest thing was starting a new game in JRPG because it gets more exciting as the story goes on.

    Whats ironic is how much people say FF7 was the best FF game of all time. But they seem to now hate JRPG style... I really hope they release a demo. Is their a demo? I don't have my 360, I don't get it back until either tomorrow or Thursday.

    Yeah, it's very ironic that FF7 & FF8 are still looked upon as the greatest Final Fantasies of all time, yet they start disliking a game that has the same gameplay mechanics as FF8... go figure.

    They released a demo disc of Lost Odyssey in Japan, but I didn't hear anything about any demo being released in the US, or the UK.

    I hope there is soon :/

    I also heard Blue Dragon was underrated and that also is a JRPG that people said was actually good. Blue Dragon was also developed by MISTWALKER

    Also the Game Designer of both Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey is the dame game designer from FF1-12
