Odin Sphere


$49.00 Released May, 2007

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Breathtaking 2d graphics breathe off the screen. Great story.

The Cons:Not many places to go to, you'll find yourself going to the same place over and over but just as different characters, which can get a little boring.

Odin Sphere is the spiritual successor to the Japanese-only Saturn game Princess Crown. For the 30 people in the world that played the original game the Odin Sphere should be familiar, for the rest of us the game plays as a side scrolling action RPG similar to Viewtiful Joe.

Product Shot 2  The main attraction to the game is through its presentation with hand drawn characters and painted backgrounds the developers aimed for the feeling of a playable cartoon. Developers Vanillaware also spent a substantial amount of effort into the game's story to try and create an epic tale that is estimated to last up to 40 hours.

The story and graphical representation are merged together as the game plays through the context of a children's story book. Each of the five chapters each with their own playable main character begins with a narration from a child reading from the book. Players then take control of the character and defeat enemies using combos, air attacks and magic spells. Each stage, as the name suggests, is a never ending sphere
that players constantly move across until all the enemies in the particular sphere are defeated.

Killed enemies release their souls which can be collected and used to purchase new items, upgrade stored items, and upgrade the character's capabilities. Items can be combined to create new potions that have different status effects and abilities.

Storyline

In the world of Erion there exist powerful nations that live in strained peace. When the most powerful nation is destroyed two nations fight out to take the top position in the world, unknowingly fulfilling a prophecy that predicts the end of the world. You control various characters that take sides among the nations and as the game progresses discover the secrets to how the nation was obliterated and how the prophecy can be stopped.
