Summary: Ordered this last year, got it within 5 days. Never got around to playing it till Last week. Cool game, 20 bucks was a bit much but oh well. The reason for the one star rating is due to the UMD falling apart less than a week into playing it. I'm fairly livid at this since I'm sure Namco-Bandai and the seller is ganna give me the run around should I seek replacement.
Summary: This installment has you play as a created character, with a supporting cast comprised of the lead characters of Tales games of old. Unfortunately, this particular one was pre-Vesperia, so no Yuri Lowell. But I digress. This is my second favourite game in the Tales franchise. Would have been the first if it had Yuri and Repede in it. Game play is great, traditional tales real time combat. You can harvest materials and stuff too, which is kinda neat.
Summary: Features longs of Tales series characters. World faces an evil threat, design your own hero from scratch, venture into dungeons, go on quests with Tales characters, a very good but long game. Features lots of soundtracks from various Tales of games.
Summary: It's a good game for anyone who haven't played the Tales of- series game, but if you the Tales of Destiny, Tales of Eternia (my favorite), or the other classics, I wouldn't recommend this game.
