Summary: to me this game was absolutely boring, the only 2 things that went on my mind during the game was (1- who is emil, 2- when will i get to play as lloyed) Gameplay: to me the battle system felt like a combination from tales of the abyss and pokemon. i cant say its bad, but i was greatly disappointed with it. ///////////// Graphics:: was very nice...
Summary: This game ultimately turned out to be a disappointment as the sequel to the first Tales of Symphonia game. In terms of challenge, that's really up to the individual player. Those more familiar with the Tales battle system may find minimal challenges when playing this game. The only two characters allowed in the front of your party are Emil and Marta, making it a hassle if you want to focus on using any of your other characters.
Summary: I am a fan of the Tales series. I spent 80 hours playing through Tales of Vesperia the first time through alone. This game is a far cry from Tales of Vesperia if you have played the most recent game on the 360. Granted, this is the Wii, but the graphics are very rough and character and monster designs very much simplified. The storyline will make sense more to players that have played the first Tales of Symphonia game on the Gamecube.
Summary: I own and have played all the tales games that have been brought over to north america. Now S2 isn't a bad game, not at all and I recommend playing it or giving it a try if you were a fan of Symphonia. That being said you will probably be confused by the opening events of the game and the new battle system is something all in itself to get used to. You will figure it out though and manage through the game.
Summary: While I haven't enjoyed certain parts of the storyline so far I will say that it definitely feels like Tales of Symphonia. The main character is different than in the first game. Anyway you collect monsters by defeating them in battle. You need to have the major element and 4 minor elements match in order for the creatures to be spellbound, which will initiate the pact at the end of the battle.
Tales Of Symphonia: Dawn Of The New World (Wii): One Tale too many.

Summary: Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World is a role-playing adventure that acquaints fans of the original Gamecube game with a number of familar and much loved characters. I picked this game up (quite eagerly, mind) because of my love for the previous game that I had spent a lot of time and effort into completing. So the latest sequel was something I was looking forward to checking out. Without checking many reviews, I plunged myself right in.
Pros: Returning characters, fairly enjoyable battle system
Cons: Messy plot, too many cutscenes, pointless monster hunting
