Tales of the Abyss 3DS Review

Console Obsession
26 June 2012
  • Excerpt: This 3DS version of Tales of the Abyss marks the first time that the 2006 game has made it to European shores. Whilst we’re on the subject of firsts, it may be the eighth game in the enduring series but it’s also the first JRPG on Nintendo’s handheld system.

Tales of the Abyss 3DS review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Namco’s Tales series is among the most popular RPG franchises in Japan, yet it has an odd on-again, off-again localization history in the West. Tales of the Abyss was one of the games fortunate enough to get the English-language treatment, releasing on the PS2 back in the fall of 2006.
  • Pros: Fast-paced, strategic action combat, Amusing character interactions, Clever dungeon puzzles and hidden secrets
  • Cons: Muddy textures and jaggy edges, Lack of new features over the original, Mieu in general

RPG meets 3D

GIN
21 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Tales of the Abyss was actually the first role playing game I got to play for the 3DS, so I was excited. Before the main menu appeared there was a fairly short opening movie that was really adrenaline-pumping.

Review: Tales of the Abyss for 3DS

TechnologyTell
6 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Times were tough for fans of the Tales series for a long time. Namco Bandai seemed determined to pretend its stellar line of RPGs didn’t exist, with the exception of localizations of Tales of Vesperia and a handful of other entries.
  • Pros: Fantastic 30-40 hour RPG, wonderful storyline, in-game events slightly influence economy, occasional side-skits pop up during the story, can cook to restore health, can customize character’s attacks and the active battle system works really well.
  • Cons: 3D effects seem tacked on. Skits aren’t voiced. Touchscreen isn’t really used. Cooperative multiplayer for battles has been removed.
