Tales of Symphonia Chronicles Review – PlayStation 3
6 April 2014
Excerpt: As a long-time gamer I often find myself looking back at the games I loved growing up with certain levels of nostalgia. Those moments of remembering the good times are coming at an even faster pace these days, as several amazing RPG titles are making a comeback at the impending end of the last-generation consoles. The system of choice to make these comebacks has been the PS3 even if the games never originated there in the first place.
Excerpt: Unlike a lot of gamers today, I'm a big fan of HD ports, remakes and collections. Having the ability to play upgraded versions of games I either loved or missed is extremely attractive, and its even better when those games are available on a portable system, i.e the Vita. Tales of Symphonia Chronicles is PS3 only (sigh), but it gave me the chance to revisit my favorite Gamecube RPG, as well as experience the sequel I never got around to playing.
Excerpt: Tales of Symphonia Chronicles is a new high definition re-release of the two Tales of Symphonia games released on the GameCube and Wii. For PlayStation owners it provides the first version of either game for your platform and those looking for a meaty action RPG adventure will enjoy the pack.

Conclusion: Tales of Symphonia Chronicles provides two games with a reasonable $40 price tag. Honestly I’d drop $40 for just the Tales of Symphonia remaster even without Dawn of the New World , so I look at the packaged deal as an added bonus. If you never got to experience the Tales of Symphonia universe either because of your age or the fact that they were on Nintendo consoles do yourself a favor, and pick up Tales of Symphonia Chronicles - you won’t be disappointed.
Conclusion: However, one of the cool things about most Tales games is that during battles, up to four human players can control the characters on screen. When my brother Jeff was young, that’s how we played the original Tales of Symphonia on the GameCube, so honestly, I’d be OK with kids younger than teens playing this game, too. Especially if they can join in with an older gamer.
Excerpt: JRPG’s can sometimes be a hit and miss affair but one thing’s for sure is that the Tales Of series, along with Final Fantasy, have been stand out titles in the genre with Tales Of Symphonia, first time around , being regarded as one of the greatest titles ever to. JRPG’s have had a bit of a resurgence lately as well with Namco hitting the ground running with Ni No Kuni as well as a couple of new Tales Of titles included.
Excerpt: I have always been excited to see any new Tales game come out. While Tales of Symphonia: Chronicles isn’t a new game, it is nice to be able to play both Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of a New World without hooking up my old consoles. These two games were originally developed in 2003 and 2008 respectively, so please do not expect the best of graphics. The cut-scenes are still amazingly beautiful, but the gameplay graphics aren’t quite as good.
