Summary: One of the things vanillaware gets right in almost all their games is the amazing 2D sprite art coupled with parallax scrolling backgrounds and an amazing soundtrack. And Odin Sphere is no different. The story's main focus is love, war and power. You play the roll of various characters and their personal adventures through a single timeline, every now and then their paths cross and character A meets with character B.
Summary: George Kamitami "King of 2D" has done it again. The artwork is so divine. The gameplay, boss fights, and storyline keep me soo hooked into this game. That it was simply a must own. The localized voices are good but nothin beats the original voice cast. Not to mention the music is amazing. The characters and their personalities you just fall in love with. And the vibrant colors are very pleasing to the eye. Its a must own.
Got my game fast and not a single scratch on the disk! Thanks Goodwill!

Summary: Excellent game. RPG side scrolling action. This is one of JRPG's classic clowning achievements folks. Its not just run in and hack and slash, you gotta plan your energy, back off against tougher foes, read attack patterns, etc. And then there's the art - OH THE ART! Its lush and gorgeous filling the entire frame with gorgeousness. Its an amazing 10/10.
Summary: When I first played the game I thought I had wasted my money. Graphics are in 2D and it is a circular almost old school gameplay system. But I stuck with it, and was amazed!! The characters, designs, colouring and art of the game is second to none! People talk about the amazing new FFXIII HD graphics, but this shows a precedent to make non HD art inspiring.
Summary: Great multiple character story's with an enchanting music score and very resourceful way of using food to level up your health! You can use alchemy to make potions from seemingly useless over abundant items and gain weapon experience from the phozons released depending how large you make the 10's multiple A-potion (99 being highest)!
Summary: Odin Sphere isn't a very well-known game, but it should be! It's got an amazing storyline that involves 5 seperate characters whose stories are interwoven as they progress. Each of their stories offers a lot of depth and elements of doubt, despair, anger, self-growth, romance, and happiness. It's a really beautiful story, honestly, and that's what many RPG fans like. The music catchy, the graphics are stylish 2D and well-executed.
Summary: Odin Sphere towers over most PS2 games in sheer brilliance! It's stunning visuals, orchestral soundtrack and gripping storyline(s) make it a cinematic masterpiece that pushes the system beyond it's limits, literally.
A Truly Amazing Gem for a Truly Amazing Time of Gaming.

Summary: Let's be honest here, the Playstation 2 was one of the greatest gaming systems of all time not due to the volume of games it had, but because of the quality ones Sony decided not to shrug off. Atlus, who are renowned for their quality RPGs, brings us another amazing game in the form of Odin Sphere. Odin Sphere is a 2D sidescrolling RPG with an interesting method of storytelling divided among five different character viewpoints.
