Maybe better if you're a fan of the series.

Summary: Yea. Very boring after a while. Non-stop fetch quest dungeon crawling/grinding with no real sense of purpose or novelty. I've heard many people say that this game is sort of just fan service for the series, and after about 20 hours with this title, I wish I would have listened to that better and spent my money elsewhere. I haven't played any other Tales games, so I didn't get any of the "inside" dialogue or understand any of the character relationships.
Summary: If you're a fan of Namco-Bandai's Tales series, you might as well give up and learn Japanese; hardly any of the games see English translations, and though other companies have offered to localize them, Namco-Bandai, for some unfathomable reason, adamantly refuses. That aside, there are two types of Tales games, Mothership titles, considered part of the main series, and Escort titles, which include spinoffs.
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.
