Tales Of The Abyss Review: Not Improving With Age

Game Informer
8 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: Tell a story about a magical, fictional world at war – and do it very slowly Graphics: Abyss looked sharper on the PlayStation 2, but it hasn’t taken much of a hit during its miniaturization Sound: It’s nothing memorable.

  • Excerpt: Set in a series that has suffered from some rather bland plots and simple gameplay, Tales of the Abyss manages to bring the series into a level higher than it has reached before.

  • Conclusion: Tales of the Abyss is a solid RPG and quite possibly one of the best installments in the Tales franchise. Namco outdid themselves with this title and any RPG fan looking for something to drop over 60 hours on will fall in love.

  • Summary: "Hra s názvem Tales of the Abyss patøí do velmi populární série her spoleènosti Namco. V tomto titulu budete ovládat Luka fon Fabre. Tento hrdina je jedinými dìdicem aristokratické rodinky. Žije si tedy velmi dobøe. Ovšem v sedmi letech byl unesen a vše co se stalo pøed únosem, si nepamatuje.

  • Excerpt: Сериал Tales никогда не считался флагманом жанра RPG, уступая первенство монстрам вроде Final Fantasy . Что, однако, ничуть не мешает Namco (а ныне Namco Bandai) исправно сочинять новые «сказки». Одна из них, Tales of the Abyss , не так давно выбралась за пределы Японии.

  • Conclusion: Tales of the Abyss est donc bel et bien un RPG que l’on peut regretter ne pas voir en Europe. Doté d’un scénario ennuyeux, il peut cependant compter sur des personnages intéressants, des décors somptueux et surtout un système de combat génial pour se propulser parmi les très bons RPG de la PS2.
  • Pros: Le système de combat, Les décors, Des personnages intéressants
  • Cons: Le scénario ennuyeux, La carte du monde

  • Conclusion: TECNICA 8,5 SONORO 7,5 GIOCABILITA' 8,5 LONGEVITA' 9 GLOBALE 8,5 IN ALTERNATIVA Kingdom Hearts 2. L’ultimo action/GdR di Square-Enix potenzia l’episodio precedente sotto tutti gli aspetti, anche se rimane un po’ ripetitivo.
