Ondanks z'n verslavende gameplay is dit spel niet voor iedereen weggelegd, en vooral de liefhebbers van rustige Puzzel/Strategy games kunnen moeite krijgen met het hectische tempo.

Liquid Dragon has created a game that will keep you on the edge of your seat by alternating between action sequences and strategic challenges. Even better is the sheer joy of interacting with The Odyssey's detailed world. You can grab boulders in midair, ground electricity from storm clouds, slap Sirens upside their head and more. Some elements even interact with each other. (Try dropping a boulder onto the head of a Cyclops.) Guiding the boats to safety using natural forces isn't easy, as they go astray unless you have a firm hand on the waters, but the satisfaction of rising to a new challenge is a rare thing and well worth pursuing.

The Odyssey: Winds of Athena is a very unique game and there’s nothing else quite like it available. The game is very easy to learn and control and this should appeal to all age groups. The game can become quite challenging when numerous obstacles are presented on the maps. However, the game does suffer from some repetition as the controls don’t change and consist of only two movements, so in some ways the simplicity of the game works to its disadvantage. You can interact with a lot of the objects around the map by grabbing rocks or slapping characters, but these are minor diversions in the grand scheme of things. The Odyssey: Winds of Athena gets major points for being a completely unique idea, but the gameplay might become boring after a while to people who aren’t fully enthralled by the title. Still, The Odyssey: Winds of Athena is not just another puzzle game and its originality goes a long way to making it both enjoyable and distinguished.

When the gods have ceased their antics and the tempests subside, where does that leave The Odyssey: Winds of Athena? Well, if you like a voyage that sets sail on calm seas but is soon fraught with disasters sure to confine you to the briny deep, this game delivers in godlike proportions. If, on the other hand, you prefer a more leisurely cruise from start to finish, too many stormy seas and rocky cliffs may lie ahead. It all depends on your disposition - if you're more like Homer the poet or Homer Simpson.
