Re: Please Rate This Review: Lost Odyssey

What's a memorable ingratiating victory song? What's a victory song? This reviews seems to assume the reader knows everything about the game already and does little explanation.

For example:

"Lost Odyssey being from Mistwalker, is the brainchild of Hironobu Sakaguchi, creator of the Final Fantasy series. As such, it maintains many of the sensibilities and conventions synonymous with the Square titles"

This sentence is meaningless without the additional statement: "One of the Square titles was the FF series in which Sakaguchi was the creator". Not all readers can be expected to link Square with FF with Sakaguchi.

You seem to know your Jap RPGs but if you don't explain where your ideas are coming from, that might lose some readers.
