Odin Sphere


So I recently had a review posted for Grim Grimoire which I thought was an excellent little RTS-wannabe that was fun and original. The second title to recently come out from developer Vanillaware was handled by Atlus, and it is called Odin Sphere. You...

Despite a few nagging issues this may be one of the best games available for the PS2. Between the cool graphics and the solid plot this is one game that you'll probably come back to more than once.

The most beautiful 2D game you'll ever play is also one of the best titles on the PS2.

Earlier I mentioned that the game and gameplay revolve around Phozons. They do not only serve to provide your character with the energy to use Phozon skills, but at the life force which will grow seeds planted in a stage. These will eventually bear a...

Odin Sphere


Every time a person thinks, “Well, that's it. The PS2 has produced it's last great game. The PS3 will now leave PS2 in the dust as everyone moves on up,” a new PS2 game is release and one realizes that the PS2 still has plenty of life in it; moreso,...

Great character designs and a snappy presentation ; Sharp voice acting ; A side-scrolling, 2D style of game play that fans of the Valkyrie Profile series will love

Alchemy is introduced later in the game than some might wish ; Alchemy tutorial isn’t as helpful or detailed as the combat tutorial

If you’re looking for a PS2 RPG with a unique personality, Odin Sphere’s the game for you!

Audibly, the game's epic soundtrack is scored nicely by Final Fantasy Tactics composer Hiroshi Sakimoto. Although none of the tracks in particular stands-out as being memorable, it still provides a nice ambiance to the game. Just don't expect to hear...

Odin Sphere - ps2


With five character stories to play through, each one taking several hours, the ability to go back to previous stages to level-up and gain items, a huge alchemy and recipe list, and a tightly woven story that takes its time to unfold, Odin Sphere has a...

Odin Sphere - PS2 review at Thunderbolt Games


Odin Sphere is far from normal. While I first thought this 2D action-RPG was a monotonous bore, it slowly grew on me as a nuanced and inventive entry to the genre. There is a surprising amount of unique things to do in this wild hack and slasher, but...

Odin Sphere Review


A charming and memorable adventure for any gamer.

Incessant load times and slowdown notwithstanding, Odin Sphere's blend of vivid art style, marvelous audio and fitting gameplay makes it a game that all players should experience.

Anyone with any interest in RPG's, action RPG's, or things from Japan in general will really enjoy this game"

Odin Sphere


You’d think after years of proliferation of Japanese-themed role playing games that it’d be harder and harder to come up with original concepts, and while this is often the case (more so with each passing year), Odin Sphere is nothing if not original. ...

What Odin Sphere does not do very well, however, is the control, as it is extraordinarily unresponsive at times, as well as poorly mapped on the Playstation 2 controller. In perhaps the worst control mapping ever, the attack button and block button...

Simply, and utterly gorgeous. This is the first thing that came to my mind when setting upon Odin Sphere, Atlus' latest release for the PlayStation 2. In today's age of increasingly complex 3D concoctions it's hardly a mystery that equally intricate...
