Pros:

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.

Cons:

Slightly repetitive in parts and noticeably suffers from slow-down in parts where the action on the screen is intense.

Verdict:

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.
