I wanna play this game but then I'll have to burn 4 of my DVD+R RL's!
Is it worth it?
As opposed to actually buying a retail copy of the game?
I loved Lost Odyssey. A lot of text and dialogue but the story is awesome. I would recommend copying it the the 360 hard drive to play. The load times are atrocious and it really kills the fun out of it.
you could probably pick up a 2nd hand copy for similar money as the price of 4 decent DL DVDs
not really worth it imo, too generic
I just played the first intro ch and never played it again
I got the game free though (retail copy, not DL) so meh, I would not waste DVD-DL's on it though, especially not 4 of them...
Why not just burn the first disc only and play it just to see if you enjoy first?
So, you have the magical ability to be certain that a 70+ hour game is "not really worth it" or "too generic" based on an hour of gameplay? You were able to predict all the character development (even of the six characters you never met!), the caliber of gameplay mechanics (even the 90% of them that you didn't have access to in the first hour of play!), and the overall quality of the narrative exposition (of which you were exposed to almost none!) all within an hour or so of turning the game on?
Before you even popped in the second of four (yes, that's 4 for all you people at home) discs!
I hope that one day I can acquire this awesome power. Until then I'll pay more attention to 'reviews' given by people who have actually experienced the content they are criticizing.
Here's an example:
It's a long game. The story continues to be "Kaim complains about being immortal." for the entire game. The last boss is the enemy you've known that it was since disc one.
For me, it was too much of a departure from the tried and true generic JRPG formula. I was bored by it. My girlfriend, however, thought that listening to Kaim whine the entire time was emotionally compelling. She thought all the characters were satisfactorily developed, although not to a Final Fantasy extent, much more than you get in most games. All in all, it was worth the $30 i payed for it, used, at GameStop.
the combat is boring as hell, and the story seems dull and not interesting at all
alot of game reviews said the exact same thing (and I basically agreed with them)
not worth it
go dl oblivion and fallout 3, only 1 disk each game and you actually get your money worth there
and lots of expansion packs to make it more worthwhile
