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.
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: Tales of Symphonia Chronicles is a bundle of two classic RPGs releasing for the first time on the PS3. This release now enables many gamers that are relatively new to the series to finally experience two great games that were released over the last decade, Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World .

Summary: Tales of Symphonia Chronicles collects updated versions of the fantastic Tales of Symphonia and the decent Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World into a low-priced set that is hard to resist. Despite being over a decade old, the original still holds up very well, and the inclusion of the Japanese voice track clears up the technical hiccups of the English version while adding even more personality to the scripted events.
Excerpt: Tales of Symphonia Chronicles contains two older Tales role playing video games. There is Tales of Symphonia which was originally released on the Gamecube, and then later ported over to the Playstation 2. There is also Tales of Symphonia Dawn of the New World which was originally released on the Wii.
Summary: The Tales series often doesn't get the same recognition as big-name JRPGs like Final Fantasy , and that's a shame. It's a consistently quality franchise that has been delivering year after year, but one of the problems with it is that some of the titles are a bit harder to find. Whereas Square releases port after port of Final Fantasy , making it easier to acquire older games, Namco doesn't tend to re-release Tales games often in the West, leaving them a little harder to...
Pros: Two games for the low price of $40, Both games hold up well to the test of time, Engaging cast of characters, Fast and fun combat system, Added trophy support adds major value, Lack of World Map exploration in Dawn of the New World
Cons: Graphics show their age throughout, 5 years later and Emil is still annoying, Lack of World Map exploration in Dawn of the New World
