Odin Sphere Leifthrasir
Even after I finished playing, I wanted to go back and explore more areas, fight more enemies and collect more loot. It's a continuous loop of fun, and I hope it never ends.
A highly successful remake that fixes the technical and design flaws of the original and turns it into one of the year's best looking action role-players.
The changes add a fun modern edge to combat and progression. However, the storytelling and repetition are more noticeable problems in today's gaming landscape
Odin Sphere returns in a beautiful package sure to bring glee to even the most jaded among us.
I never thought we'd see Odin Sphere again, but here we are with Leifthrasir. Even if it kept all of the classic frustrations as is it would still be worth checking out, but Vanillaware and Atlus have somehow managed to cater to both crowds with the remake. This game is required reading, and now is the time to curl up and see what you've been missing.
Odin Sphere Leifthrasir's distinct painterly graphics, free-flowing combat and intuitive RPG systems make it a joy, whether you're a newcomer or a returning fan. While some remakes are largely unnecessary, Vanillaware have taken a forgotten classic and made it an essential title for the current generation.
Odin Sphere Leifthrasir reworks a title that already at the time showed great potential, turning it into an extraordinary experience. Artistically sublime, deep, captivating, the game of Vanillaware is a great title for every gamer.

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir raises the bar for all remakes with its inclusion of an enhanced version of the original game, and also because of its refined mode, which offers sublime gameplay and some of the best looking visuals on PlayStation.
Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir is the remake this story justly deserves, marred only by slight signs of age, and a time capsule that perfectly preserves the magic of Odin Sphere, for the many years it's lost and the many years to come.
My only regret is that I didn't play Odin Sphere enough back in the day to truly appreciate the overhaul that VanillaWare has given it.
