Fun for Final Fantasy Fans, Annoying for anyone who hates being stuck in front of the TV for ages!,
This review is from: Lost Odyssey (Video Game)
As a fan of the Final Fantasy games, I rather enjoy playing this one. It's nothing new, but I knew that when I bought it. The one thing that has spurred me to write this review today is that I have just spent over 2 hrs playing this game and did not manage to save it- and this isn't the first time.
The Maps are SO difficult to read (I'm not playing on a HD TV) but if there is a save point around, you may not be aware of it because it might be on another level. Since the first time this happened, I have made sure I search for save points but I couldn't find one today. It's all well and good if I have hours to spend on my Xbox- BUT I DON'T. I have never felt so frustrated when that 'game over' title came up!
It can be rather tedious in places, with random mini games put in which are unimaginative and extremely boring. Some of the characters lack a bit of personality, and don't expect some of the top animation sequences from Final Fantasy- this animation is pretty awful (and I should know, I'm an animator!)
Basically, get the game if you like Final Fantasy since you will enjoy it but be warned- you may have no choice but to play it for hours on end!
