Good battle system, dumb characters, but great game overall!

  • Summary: This game reminded me of Final Fantasy X.. But with more dumb characters. At least in X most of the older guardians knew what they were doing, in this game, I,, just didn't know what to think sometimes.

Solid Game.

  • Summary: Good game so far. Nothing terribly new as afar as the game mechanics go. Battle system's a bit weird, but you get used to it. The game is an interesting historic fiction.... but it's mostly just a mix of history and fiction, in two separate parts.

Good in Spite of Pointless Plot

  • Summary: Tri-Crescendo is at best a niche videogame developer, their most notable titles being the Baten Kaitos titles for the Nintendo GameCube, which they co-developed with Monolith Soft. In 2007, they developed the Xbox 360 title Trusty Bell: Chopin's Dream, with Namco-Bandai games publishing it, the game...

A silly hearted game that isn't for sissies.

  • Summary: Fans of RPG's JRPG's and/or classical music should enjoy this one. The only downside to this game is they adopted awkward names for familiar items i.e. potions are "cookies." As silly as the whole thing may seem, don't play this one unless you're up for a challenge, you HAVE to grind like a mother...

  • Summary: Beautiful visuals, fun combat and well done voice acting. I really enjoyed the underlying message from the story, which I hope isn't lost on most players. All in all it was a fun game but something about the whole thing felt lacking.

  • Summary: Where do i start? I could give a history lesson of Fredrick Chopin, but Eternal Sonata is nothing like that. Eternal Sonata follow Chopin in his dream as he is dying in reality, spoiler: Chopin dies at the end. it is not really a spoiler the games tells you that at the beginning.

PROS: -Gorgeous graphics and art -Distinct, fun cast of playable characters with (mostly) excellent voiceover, exceptions certainly exist -High level of difficulty to complement the simple-yet-deep battle system -Did I...

Cute JRPG

Reynard Ealisaid, Amazon

  • Summary: 3.5/5 (Rounded up, It's a story thing) Imagine a fantasy fan-fic of Chopin's dying days. You might imagine something along the lines of Eternal Sonata...but it's not likely. Its seems to me like what might come of a less successful collaboration between Tri-Ace and Level 5. It's an action-y JRPG.

A Unique Premise for an RPG...

  • Summary: When I first heard about this game, I was rather excited because there weren't many RPGs available on the PS3 at the time. I've only just now gotten around to playing this game (spent all my money on DS games!).

Great game that the PS3 deserves.

Travis L. Chapman "Anime Nerd", Amazon

  • Summary: The cry of the role-playing fan during the early stages of a new generation is always the same: "where are my RPGs?!" Unfortunately for PlayStation 3 owners, this cry oppressively hung suspended in the air for quite a long time, especially for fans of the old-school JRPG format that has sadly...
