Yeah I was debating these two games for a long time. I understand that they  are completely different games, but which one do you guys like better? I'm sort of leaning in on Lost Odyssey because I have a lot of shooters. Still, I need your opinions. Thanks

If you have alot of shooters UT3 will just be the same kick in the guts for you... Its a great game but as what you are looking at doing, go for Lost Odyssey.

Hope i helped you abit :P

UT3 is just another shooter so I guess I would recommend Lost Odyssey out of default. I haven't played it, but I've heard good things from some friends...I just don't really want to read a game.

I would recommend waiting. Fall has a LOT of games coming out, and Soul Calibur IV is right around the corner.

I would recommend Lost Odyssey more then Unreal Tournament III just because you get more of a storyline and a longer game with a JRPG.

Wow, those are 2 totally different games.

I'd say if you own Halo 3, COD4, R6V2, or Battlefield: Bad Company then take a pass on Unreal Tournament.

If you don't own any of those games, go out and buy them because they're all better than Unreal Tournament.

Then buy Lost Odyssey on the cheap.

Yeah, true... I just won't have much time to enjoy those games with school. Right now I am basically doing nothing

It depends on which genre you favor more.

I would agree that you should get Lost Odyssey. I haven't played it myself but I have played UT3 and can say that if you have more shooters, you aren't really getting anything real new, just updated really.

It depends on wether you enjoyed the PSX Final Fantasies. Lost Odyssey is basically a 1998 game with a little 2008 touch-up. For many gamers, including myself, that's a great thing. But for a gamer who is seriously considering UT over LO? Well, I don't know.

Lost Odyssey I guess. UTIII seems to have a poor online community so far. (On the PC there are more people playing UT2004 than UTIII).

I say Lost Odyssey.

UT3 is basically a different shooter, Im sure you have about 6 or more shooters in your game library. Xbox 360 is the shooter console after all. Buying Lost odyssey will give you a really fun game that last really long but also gives support to a new franchise that might get sequels if it has good sales. LO already has been getting some DLC love so you know that Mistwalker cares about the game.

As a first JRPG, Lost Odyssey will win your love before the first DVD ends.

I love the Unreal Tournament franchise, but epic seems to have failed flat with 3.. especially on the pc where its hard even finding a server for the frikken thing.
Anyway, Lost Odyssey is truly a great game, it doesn’t really add many new innovating features to the traditional turn based RPG, but it doesn’t need to. It offers around 40 hours game play with a decent story.
If you like JRPG's i promise you will like LO.

enjoy!

You'll probably get a better experience out of the original Unreal Tournament or UT2K4, you could probably get one of those cheap if you don't already have them and buy Lost Odyssey as well.

Lost Odyssey can last 100 hours if you want it to, and it's a great RPG.

I agree with him. LO is longer and the story is really good.

Lost Odyssey, bc Gears of War has become more fun than UT3 nowadays, it's so sad.

LO is one of the better, if not one of the best, RPGs of the year. I would pass on Unreal, which I have on PS3. It's fun at first, but it doesn't last. There's not alot of replay value, imo. It gets tedious. Everyone is a rocket launcher whore.

UT3 is a rare shooter nowadays.  Just a plain old shooter that you can't get in Halo or CoD4.  Its the last of its kind.  I would say get that, I have had a lot of fun with it.  Also, if you have a friend, the campaign coop, while lame in story and stuff is a lot of fun.  JRPGs are not my thing, they are just too boring for me.  Oblivion, Mass Effect and Fallout 3 are what RPGs really should be.

I want both of these games myself but I would probably choose UT3.

I want a shooting game where if I'm bored I can just play against bots. Plus the fact that I would have to change disks for Lost Odyssey kind of brings me down.

Every 10-15 hours, not that big of a deal. People are that lazy?

Thanks guys, I am going to go with Lost Odyssey. Besides, I came up with another solution...Instead of UT 3 I can just wait for Gears 2 and play that.

Grinding=bad.


UT3=One of the most unique shooters on the Xbox 360

It already sounds as if you'll prefer shooters anyways.

I just made the mistake of buying UT3 without ever playing it before for $50, I wanna go back in time 5 hours.

Unreal Tournament has always been great, so you probably can't go wrong with getting it.

UT3 is for a select few, twitchy shooters aren't my thing, personally.

I would say get Lost Odyssey first and get it used. Most people traded it in before they even got to another disc. But the game is well written and the characters are memorable and its the first JRPG worth noting of this generation.

Those two games are so different but I would get Lost Odyssey because there are not that many people playing UT3 on 360 any more.
