so where do i start with Lost Sphear, well the graphics are great (what you expect from this type of game cute and colourful) and the controls are easy to use even in combat, the only thing i wish for when in combat, it was more clear what character you where on, or when you want to aid a different character ( i use an xbox controller to play the game). The music is ok, not great but ok, it is nothing special, the stuff you again expect from this type of game. The story well lets start at the beginning, now a days for a game to make peeps feel part of it, the game needs an intro clip/clips scenes, this is where Lost Sphear falls down there is not one, which is a pitty. the story its self is the normal stuff, something happens you go to fix it, getting pulled into something bigger, then the peeps you are helping turn out to be the bad guys, others turn on you etc, the norm stuff. The game also fails on no spoken word, gamers now expect games to be fully voiced, which puzzles me why this was not, with Square Enix and Tokyo Factory behind this game. The game does have some good elements behind it, like having to bring back lost zones and the towers so you can can unlock world map etc, the story is what will save this game, i don't want to go to much in to it, to spoil it, but it does have elements to the game which make it stand out. Is there anything i would have liked for the game, well yes voiced acted, zone map when you where in a town or dungeon, its just i like them, not just the world map. so would I recommend this game, yes i would, even with its flaws, its a great game, I am enjoying playing it, but with the things missing i can only give this game a 8.2/10 i wish it was more, but sadly not, hopefully when they make Lost Sphear 2, they will iron out these things and i can give it a 10, we will have to wait and see
Lost Sphear is a game heavily inspired by Chrono Trigger, and since it is published (and created) by Square, it's no coincidence, but deliberate. Graphics are nice and crisp, with art direction taking some inspiration from Chrono Trigger. Soundtrack is pretty good, but then again, Tomoki Miyoshi also did a pretty good job in I am Setsuna. Gameplay-wise, it is turn based jRPG just like I am Setsuna, so if you liked that game, you will also enjoy this one. Game itself is pretty solid, but biggest issue is that it lacks identity and instead of creating its own, it heavily relies on everything that worked in the past. It also isn't anything new for the genre, so if you're only looking for earth shattering titles, this one will be a pass for you. If you're season jRPG player or fan of the genre, you will enjoy it, because you won't compare it much to previous great titles and instead judge it on its own merits. Collector's Edition is little disappointing, though, because all you get is OST, no artbook or anything of this sort. Shame, because artbooks in those games are most of the time really nice. But OST is pretty solid, so you won't regret it much. Good game on its own, but at the same time outshined by any other game it tries to mimic.
