    For all its missteps as an action-RPG, it is simply flawless as an example of how to make a Vita experience work. Judicious use of touchscreen controls, beautiful visuals, a smartly broken-up mission structure and eerily swift loading times makes this the gold standard for Sony's portable.

    A Vita game that you need to pick up and enjoy, because it is one of the best experiences on Sony's handheld yet. Sure the game has some frustrating moments and can become a bit repetitive, but it delivers intense action, smooth visuals, and an online experience that will have you coming back for more.

    I enjoyed my time with Ragnarok Odyssey and thought it to be a great fit for the Vita. The "pick up and play" nature of the contract system makes it the perfect game to play while sitting on a train, plane or bus. Those who have already tackled Monster Hunter for the PSP and are looking for more would do well to give this one a gander.

    Despite its issues in just about every department, the core of Ragnarok Odyssey is a competent Monster Hunter-style adventure. For the right audience, the fast-paced combat counterbalances any issues with repetition and awkwardness.

    Game Art seeks to create a title that'll give Monster Hunter a run for its money. Though it's not quite there, it's a very solid first attempt to an exclusive title that should continue to grace the PlayStation Vita.

    Missions become repetitive. [May 2013, p.84]

    Ragnarok Odyssey is a polished offering with tight controls and nice graphics, but a little innovation would have gone a long way. In terms of both style and gameplay, this is little more than a generic RPG offering that fails to build on solid foundations.

    Very good game, good music, tons of playtime, customisation and more! i was having doubts because of the official review but i soon learnedVery good game, good music, tons of playtime, customisation and more! i was having doubts because of the official review but i soon learned that user score is what people should actually look instead of ''officials'' one, some complain that you have to ''come back to get materials'' ...that's what rpg are about, if you don't like it, don't play! i don't like seafood, i'm not going to review seafood even if it was made by a 5 star cook, why? because i can't appreciate it, someone who like seafood will say it's amazing, so that's why, when you don't like X type of game, DON'T REVIEW IT!

    Ragnarok Odyssey is a very pretty co-op action RPG, but it has far more up it's sleeve than just looks. This game has personality too! UnlikeRagnarok Odyssey is a very pretty co-op action RPG, but it has far more up it's sleeve than just looks. This game has personality too! Unlike the Dungeon Hunter: Alliance, this hack slash adventure has heart and it has soul, and as such it's earned itself a bit of a 'cult hero' status a moniker that it's fully deserving of. Highly recommended for adventure fans. (8.5 out of 10). Expand
