Abyss Odyssey: Extended Dream Edition

Overview -

About one year ago, ACE Team's 'Abyss Odyssey' released on the PS3, 360, and PC. The interesting rouge-like was met with mixed reviews, some loving the game's premise and battle system, while others disliked the difficulty and sometimes sluggish controls.

However, the mid-tier game has another chance to shine with 'Abyss Odyssey: Extended Dream Edition' on the PlayStation 4, which brings the title to 1080p and introduces a few tweaks, revamped combat, and both local and online duel multiplayer. Does this title justify delving into your wallet?

Video Review


The character portraits and stills used in 'Abyss Odyssey' are stylish and fetching. They are quite unique given typical video game art styles, and the change of looks is quite welcome. The bump in resolution to 1080p is welcome as well. It's a shame, then, that the actual game doesn't look nearly as pretty. The models are somewhat bland, and the backgrounds are nice at first, but get repetitive quickly. It's understandable that the art style wasn't kept throughout, but it's a bit disappointing that the graphics that players will see most of the time don't measure up to the game's best.

Audio Review


There is nothing inherently wrong with 'Abyss Odyssey's' soundtrack. It's nothing offensive that would make it stand out as bad, but it's also not particularly memorable. The voice acting is good. The characters having proper accents, and not a single voice actor brings down the presentation.

Final Thoughts

'Abyss Odyssey: Extended Dream Edition' is quite the intriguing title. It offers plenty of content, and is worth checking out on the PS4 for anyone who missed the original release. The always shifting dungeons, the deep and more satisfying than ever before combat system, and the multiplayer gives this title a surprisingly amount of staying power. It's worth a try, alone or with friends; as long as you don't mind a few of the typical rogue-like quirks, 'Abyss Odyssey' is worth the entry price.
