Read a lot of mixed reviews before I bought this game and the sales numbers seemed low ... But the demo videos were so beautiful and developers from Square Enix were involved meant that I still tried. Which I do not regret!
It is clearly the overall best rpg game for the Xbox 360 I've played. And I've played the most. Game environments are beautiful, the music is wonderful (especially the one that is playing when the world map is displayed, I often got stuck at the world map longer than planned just to hear the sweet tones) and the characters have some depth, particularly the immortals.
To have the immortal characters made me wonder how the gameplay mechanics would work, but in retrospect I can say that the developers did it all brilliantly. Characteristics of the deadly unlocks at leveling or can benefit from temporary using his armor, they immortals learn from their kinsmen. And if they immortal fall in battle they revived after a certain time (if all die at the same time, the game ends). Otherwise it's a fairly common rpg.
But the very best thing about this game is the dream / memory sequences are unlocked as a take through the game. They are among the most well-written texts I've ever read in games. It happened more than once that I cried a few tears for the sequences were so beautiful and sad at the same time.
Personally, I love also that it is possible to choose the audio language, something I wish more games did (some English dub makes me almost want to stop playing: it is said that the English speech is okay in Lost Odyssey, which I have not tried it myself).
House any time, for those who like Final fantasy but thought the series might have been better in the past and for those who like jrpg in general, try it!
