  • Conclusion: This poorly designed iOS port of Tales of Phantasia nearly drove me to hate one of my favorite JRPGs of all time.
  • Pros: It's Tales of Phantasia for free (well, almost…).
  • Cons: Players need to be online to play at all times, the opening music is not the Yukari Yoshida vocal song, myriad control issues and disabled save points goad players into micro-transactions just to make the game playable.

12 November 2006
  • Excerpt: All videogame genres have their own set of clichés, but role-playing games (RPGs) have always been among the worst offenders for me. Pick up any RPG at random, and you'll probably find 1) a young male hero with a funny name who must set out “all alone” on an adventure, 2) magic (and 2a: a female...

  • Summary: The Tales RPGs started out with Nintendo, with Tales of Phantasia launching as one of the most impressive Super Nintendo RPGs of that time, out-classing many early PSone efforts. The game was so big that it was unfortunately never (officially) translated for the West.

  • Excerpt: The game begins with teenaged hero Cress going out on a hunting trip with his best bud, Chester. While they're away from the village they find the great tree of mana, Yggdrasil - which doesn't look exactly like it's in tip top shape, either.

Tales of Phantasia

Nintendo World Report
6 March 2006
  • Summary: Buy Tales of Phantasia! Arche will make it "worth your while".
  • Pros: Art design is great and shines on the GBA., The active battle system works well in 2D without really losing anything., The story is refreshingly honest. People die, and it makes others angry.
  • Cons: Aspects of the story are similar to other games in the Tales series., Random battles happen often and can lead to feeling over-leveled.
