“Ragnarok Odyssey is a PlayStation Vita game that serves as another addition into the Ragnarok Online universe, but manages to borrow, or sometimes straight up copy, from other games. But this actually isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

For context, Ragnarok Online is a popular 2D MMO based on the Korean manhwa called Ragnarok by Lee Myung-jin. The world is heavily based on Norse mythology, so anyone with at least limited knowledge of the mythology can pick out names such as Valhalla, Odin, and Thor. Odyssey is a departure from the MMO and features much more fast paced “Hunter style” gameplay. Admittedly, I don’t know much about Norse mythology and I know even less about Ragnarok Online. Players familiar with the MMO are bound to find plenty of parallels between Odyssey and Online, such as the main classes, enemies, and small details like armor similarity.

Despite that, I jumped into this game eager to pick up anything worthwhile for my dormant Vita. After reviewing some images of it online and finding some gameplay of it, I decided to give it a shot and for the most part, it works. But all is not right in Valhalla.”
