Odin Sphere’s HD Remake Runs Like A Dream

Odin Sphere’s HD Remake Runs Like A Dream

Odin Sphere for the PlayStation 2 is a gorgeous 2D masterpiece of an action role-playing game with a big slowdown problem. The high-definition remake, due out this month for the PlayStation 3, 4 and Vita, does away with the game’s one glaring flaw.

I’ve been playing an awful lot of Atlus and Vanillaware’s Odin Sphere Leifthrasir over the past week, clocking in around 28 hours despite attending an anime convention over the weekend and being blessed with two ridiculous children. Having played through the original back in 2007, I was not expecting to be so hooked by the remake, but it just runs so damn well. See for yourself.

All the beauty and charm of the original remains intact. The deep crafting and cooking system, the interwoven stories, the satisfying and varied combat system — it’s all here, only bigger and smoother than ever. It’s like they took a classic car and retrofitted it with a souped-up modern engine.

If you played and loved Odin Sphere back on the PlayStation 2, definitely check out the high definition version. If you didn’t play Odin Sphere back on the PlayStation 2, that’s an unfortunate oversight that’s easily remedied this month.
