I finally beat Odin Sphere and the ending is...amazing! Such a breathtaking, emotional final few scenes and it ties together everything that had come before it in the story. I won't give any spoilers because I don't like getting games, anime or movies etc spoiled for me. I'll simply recommend the game, it definitely is way up there among my favourite games. Yeah, there are some bits and aspects I didn't like, perhaps it was a tad too drawn out, slightly repetitive, it often lags and is quite hard at times, but all of those flaws are only minor superficial scratches and really don't take too much away from the overall experience of the game.
My final clear time was 65 hrs 20 and I got the true ending (yeah, I had a peek at Gamefaqs to find out what order to do things in to get it =p) and it is such a beautiful ending to an incredible game.
I'm going to sleep now. ^o^
