Trading Card Games (TCGs) are always a lot of fun to play especially if you have either lots of friends to trade with or a huge amount of cards to make your deck from. However, considering the various TCGs that are available now a days, one can’t help but feel a bit overwhelmed as almost all of them have the same format. That being said, there are a few which do tend to stand out from the herd. A prime example of such a TCG is Namco’s Outcast Odyssey which is a RPG game that has you battle various monsters with the help of your awesome and all so might card deck.
Now, I won’t really try to explain the intricate details of the game as they will require a lot of effort and write-up on my part. Instead I will take a more in depth look at the general gameplay of Outcast Odyssey. The game has players explore and plunder through various dungeons in its single player campaign, facing off against various monsters which can only be brought to their knees with the help of the cards you draw from your deck.
Of course Outcast Odyssey also has the traditional (real world) TCG elements such as being able to trade cards with your friends, facing off against real world enemies, the ability to evolve creatures by merging two or more cards etc. The game also offers players the change to join guilds which more or less serve as a meeting point for new friends and trading buddies as well as the chance to win great rewards by facing off against outcasts of opposing guilds.
Since this is a game from Namco, the graphics as well as the sound effects for various in game events are just superb. With colorful background sceneries and well detailed colorful monsters, and adventurous background music, you will soon find yourself immersed in the game deeply.
All in all, Outcast Odyssey is quite a unique TCG that manages to not only bring something new to the table while keeping all the traditional elements of the genre alive. Of course, there are a few pesky in app purchases that might be pushed in your face to make your game easier but you can very well do without them as well. So, if you’re someone who’s always in the lookout for an exciting new TCG to try out, I highly recommend that you think about trying this game out as soon as possible.
