Summary: Tales of the Abyss is one of the best 6th Gen RPGs I've played and now it's available for 3DS. It's storytelling is great and it has a great love story and it's story in general is very heartfelt and creative and it's battle system is fun and typical of the Tales series and so is it's colorful,charming,anime-inspired visuals and it's music is beautiful and delicate at times and helps add to the heartfelt moments.
Summary: Tales of the Abyss is a RPG by Namco originally released on the PS2, nothing is changed from the original but the smaller screen slightly damages the visuals. the gameplay is the same as most Tales games ,but Abyss was the first one the have the free-run mechanic. the story, even though it isn't as long as most other Tales games still leaves an impact with likeable and relatable characters immersing you in the game's world.
Summary: Probably my favorite Tales game in the entire series. This game has a combination of great game play and a cool story. The only cons are the terrible graphics and loading times. This is definitely a game you play through more than once.
Tales of The Abyss - Your Average JRPG, only in 3D

Summary: Being as Tales of Symphonia is one of my favorite games of all time, I had high hopes for Tales of the Abyss, and, having never played its original version, I got it for the 3DS, hoping it would be good. I wasn't disappointed. The graphics in Tales of the Abyss are great, especially for a handheld after i was restricted to my standard DS for so long.
Summary: Simply put, good aspects of the Tales of games were brought together and BOOM, you get Tales of the Abyss. I found the game very entertaining, from exploring the story, to in-depth character relationships. There was always something new with every playthough. The characters are all wonderful, but with simple character development. The music is gorgeous, one of my favorite aspects of the game. I definitely recommend the 3DS version.
Summary: This games battle system is completely amazing, constant beautiful 'artes' (techniques) a great storyline its truly an amazing game of its time. I couldn't find much of a better way to spend $25.
Summary: This game was good like all the other tales of games, like tales of legendia or tales of symphonia, but this one i liked the most. the only bad thing that i can find about it is that when you get the albiore you have to land it and it stays where you landed it.
Summary: The story of this game has a good plot and theme and stuff, not to say, story wise, it was worth way more than what it was worth in my opinion. The game play was decent too. What annoyed me the most was having to wait longer than usual for scenes and battles to load, as well as when your saving the game. Other than that, the game added in a lot of new features that made it better than it already is. It's definitely worth buying.
Summary: This game just about sums up my "perfect" game. It's been my favorite RPG since I first began to play it, and even with newer Tales games on the market, it is hands down my favorite of the series. It'd take a LOT to push it down to second place. Everything about this game meshes perfectly for me, from the look and feel of the game, the music and sound effects, the voice acting (though some can be a bit cheesy at times, over all it was great!
