Gameplay

I'm on the fence about this game. What's the gameplay like? I haven't played the D&D games people mention here, but I have played Odin Sphere a little.

Ever played any of the Golden Axe games? As far as the theme goes, it's pure fantasy like those games. As for actual gameplay, try to picture any old school sidescrolling beat em up: Streets of Rage, Final Fight, Double Dragon, etc. Only it's hi-res hand drawn graphics with light RPG levelling-up elements.

Here is the main site, and all current footage of the game featuring every character, and a few basic trailers.

I don't recognize any of those games listed above. The trailers tell me nothing about the gameplay -- only the graphics and what the characters look like.

The article didn't say much, but it made the controls for PS3 sound awkward -- hopefully you don't need to use items while moving. Also, I wasn't sure about the way that if you fall behind, then you get less experience, which causes you to fall further behind, etc.

The trailers do tell you about the gameplay...look at them...it's a hack and slash...party based Odin Sphere.

And go play the D&D games...roms are easy to find or you can just download the trial on PSN.

I used to be a Street Fighter like you...then I took a Spiral Arrow to the knee.

It's hack and slash, side-scrolling RPG. Odin Sphere is like this, you can look up gameplay videos of Odin Sphere to get a gist.

The videos do show combat though, albeit it's got them cut into few second segments.
