Herald Rating: * * * *
Highly imaginative storytelling and artwork draw on myths and legends to create a well-drawn fantasy world. Five characters are featured adding variety to the many fight sequences and the game overall has tremendous depth.
Slightly repetitive in parts and noticeably suffers from slow-down in parts where the action on the screen is intense.
There's plenty of novelty value in Odin Sphere, which comes with that quirky Japanese touch of melodrama and shows there's ife in 2D action adventure games.
