How To Have A Good Experience With Lost Odyssey
Many of the articles I have read about Lost Odyssey talk about how tough the bosses are and how you simply need to power level and grind for hours prior to the big battles. They couldn’t be more wrong. The battles in Lost Odyssey are very challenging, yet there’s really no need for power leveling at all. I have a feeling that a lot of gamers and game reviewers have grown so accustomed to simple games that something like Lost Odyssey simply frustrates them.
The truth of the matter is that Lost Odyssey is the best RPG available on the Xbox 360. It’s also the most challenging. There’s a lengthy learning curve to the game and it takes a lot of strategy to win.
Here are my tips on how to make your Lost Odyssey experience the most enjoyable:
- Understand the GC system. If you don’t understand it, there’s no way you will do well.
- Keep your non-immortals alive at all costs. The name of the game in Lost Odyssey is defense. As long as you keep everyone healthy and get a good defensive strategy going, there is plenty of time for attacking. Don’t get greedy with attacking too early! Immortals will re-spawn after a few turns, so it’s crucial that the non-immortals stay at a high level of health whenever possible.
- Do not miss any items. You simply have to talk to everyone in the game and pick up all of the items. There are some items that you simply have to pick up in order to do well against bosses later in the game.
- Do not power level. This will just create a long drawn out gameplay for you. Leveling starts to taper off anyway. If you notice you are not getting much experience for battles, that means you are either at or above the proper level.
- Finally, experiment a little when possible. Equipment changes are necessary nearly every time you travel to a new area. Every enemy has a weakness like all RPGs and you need to figure out their weaknesses and patterns.
In the end, Lost Odyssey is an awesome game with a great story to back it up. If you have patience and intelligence, this is the game for you. I haven’t experiences a story like this since Final Fantasy 7. Don’t let the negative reviews keep you from trying out this game either. Anyone who doesn’t like this game obviously isn’t big on RPGs. My only complaint about the game is that there are way too many cut scenes. Fortunately, you can skip them if they get too annoying.
