I have now put almost forty hours into Lost Odyssey and I can’t wait to finally finish this game. The enjoyment I found early in the game has significantly decreased thanks to some tedious dungeons, boring “grinding runs”, and a story that has become more and more uninteresting the deeper I go. That being said, Lost Odyssey is still a solid jRPG and I would recommend the game for (sorry, but I can’t help but use this cliché right now) fans of the genre, but I can’t see the game keeping many gamer’s interest after finishing disc 2.
I really loved Lost Odyssey in the beginning, but the game took a bit of a tumble once I inserted disc 3. The story has become rather dull and I can’t even be bothered to read the dream sequences anymore, though their degree of frequency has declined, which is a positive in my eyes. I can’t quite put my finger on the reason why I’ve lost interest, but I really have no desire to see how this story concludes, though I am still determined to finish the game.
The fundamentals of the gameplay haven’t changed, but the game tries to mix things up with puzzle-like dungeons, as well as splitting up the group in a way to give a more detailed back-story for each character. A few new characters have been added to the group, but these characters feel rather useless and can be a tad annoying at time. If there’s one thing that hasn’t nosedived in Lost Odyssey, it would have to be the music. I am still enjoying the soundtrack and may actually consider picking it up sometime in the future.
This concludes the LTTP feature for Lost Odyssey and I hope you enjoying reading it as much as I’ve enjoying writing it. I’ll be following this up with a full review for the game and will be using my lovely sausage system! I think my opinion of the game should be rather clear right now, but things could change after I finish the end-game. Look forward to more LTTP features in the future. Sausage out.
