A silly hearted game that isn't for sissies.

Zuul, Amazon
11 April 2014
  • 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 all throughout the game, otherwise every single boss you encounter is going to wipe the floor with you.

Likable characters and great co-op gameplay

Christopher Lankford, Amazon

  • Summary: I found this cute game to be very fun, with an engaging cast of characters. 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 mention a good voiceover? -Thought-provoking, if not somewhat random, plotline.

Cute JRPG

Reynard Ealisaid, Amazon
5 March 2012
  • 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. It has a Level 5 look and sound to it. I'll try and be concise. I enjoyed the game. The world and characters are colorful and beautifully cell-shaded.

A Unique Premise for an RPG...

Feelah the tigress, Amazon

  • 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!). When I first heard the game's premise (that you are experiencing the fever dream of famed composer Frederic Chopin), I was really intrigued. It's a very unique premise for an RPG and has the potential to be deep, artistically meaningful experience.

Great game, if you like RPGs

  • Summary: First off, Eternal Sonata is not for everyone. On a personal not, I have enjoyed this game very much. It's a standard RPG where you have a party, you travel through a mystical world in non-random encounters and boss battles will test your ability. That being said, the way it is put together might not be very attractive for everyone. The animation style makes the cutscenes seem a little bit slow.

Great game with great graphics and sound. Good Value for money definitely.

  • Summary: I read about this game through some online game site reviews and most of them have good comments. I have always been a RPG fan especially of this genre with cartoon like characters. That is the reason why i chose to get this product and i must say i am happy i make this decision. The graphics and sound is very good, bright and nice. I particularly like the battle system. Something different and after a while you will get the hang of it.

Sealed Wrap

tchangster, Ebay

  • Summary: The order was good and for such a low price, I had to give it a GOOD rating. Con with product, however, is the manual book. Seems copied hence the unclear image depictions and the fact that the shrink wrap did not have the ps3 logo embossed around it. Other than that, I'm stoked to play this game!

This Game is awesome!

Giovanna Spanti "Giovanna", Amazon
11 May 2010
  • Summary: I was very pleased with my purchase. The game is fun, far from being gore or violent and it is great for just kicking back after an end of term exam! I have yet to finish the game, but the monsters are a little repetitive and the dungeons are slightly dull, but the movie sequences compensate for the two. Not to mention that the graphics and the music are absolutely mesmerizing, all in all I give the game a four out of five.

Eternal Sonata: PS3 Edition Reviewed

whizzer902, Ebay
15 April 2010
  • Summary: Here's your opener: this is a wonderful game. Eternal Sonata tells the story of a critically ill Frederic Chopin's deathbed dream-world. It is a traditional Japanese style RPG and playing it will make you wish that RPG designers in the 16 bit era had had access to PS3 level technology. The HD-era glory never obstructs the core package here as in some titles. Rather, it augments it wonderfully and the game itself comes shining through.

Leveling is a B

B. Romer, Amazon
26 December 2009
  • Summary: The game is really well done. Its super colorful so beware if you have emo eyes. The story is really good but it takes a little to get going. The characters are very realistice and distinct and you can watch them grow and change which is always a plus. The one problem with this game is the leveling. It seems to me that the bosses are easier later in the game but early on i had to go level up for two hours before i even had a chance.
