  • Excerpt: Although Tales of Symphonia 2 was recently released on the Wii, the original GameCube title is still very tough to get hold of, but I managed to pick it up from a GameStation for a bargain £18 a few months back (it regularly goes on Ebay for approx £30).
  • Pros: Interesting and effective combat system, Decent plot, Huge scope for customisation and collecting
  • Cons: Some corny dialogue

Excellent RPG... but NOT the best

  • Summary: This is arguably the best Gamecube RPG and any roleplaying fan will enjoy it. The story starts like a rip-off of Final Fantasy X, but several twists ensure it carves out its own identity in the second half of the game.

The Masterpiece that is Tales of Symphonia

  • Excerpt: Tales of Symphonia is, in my opinion, the best RPG to date on the Nintendo Gamecube. The game is spread across two disks and follows the tale of Lloyd and his Companions as they travel the two worlds of Sylverant and Tethe'alla on a quest to save the fate of the two worlds.
  • Pros: Awesome story and Battle System, lots of sidequests and likeable characters
  • Cons: Leaves a few unanswered questions

not as good as everyone told me!

Paul Wetherhill, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I originally got into RPGs through Final Fantasy 7, which unfortunately sets a very high benchmark for others to follow. This game does deliver, im just not sure that it would be suitable for an entry level RPG player. First of all, its not turn based as most websites will tell you.
