Excerpt: I was fully aware of all of the negatives about Eternal Sonata well before I turned on the power button. The game is derivative. It has a beautiful presentation that ultimately falls short because of its terrible ending. It is "just another JRPG" with no soul.
Conclusion: The overall deep storyline which questions fundamental values of human nature is rewarding when you reach its final conclusion - Eternal Sonata clocks in at roughly 20 - 25 hours which makes it an investment of your time - but its well worth, even if just for a look, though the game really does only...
Conclusion: Frankly, I had trouble sticking with Eternal Sonata for these reasons, but I suspect that it will pull in the rabid, RPG-dedicated audience that loves this kind of action. On top of that, it’ll likely draw in some others who are curious or who like a bit of twisted in their game library.
Conclusion: If you are looking for a solid role-playing game for the Xbox 360 then you definitely need to add Eternal Sonata to your list. The gameplay is fast and furious and the presentation is simply to die for.
Conclusion: What else can I say? If you've read the review, or even just the summaries, you'll know this game is simply amazing. A must for any RPG fan, and for non-RPG fans, this just may convert you.
Summary: Whilst most typical RPG games follow a similar predictable storyline, Eternal Sonata will take you through a unique journey inside the mind of Frederic Chopin, a renowned composer and pianist from Poland.
Pros: An original tale that mixes reality with fantasy, Graphically stunning, A musical soundtrack that can rival any title
Cons: The game can become repetitive over time, Artificial intelligence often goes easy on you, Long cutscenes may annoy many
Excerpt: Let the music take you to another world! The xbox 360 doesn’t have all that many Japanese Role Playing Games, or JRPG`s as they are known, only the 3 disc epic that id Blue Dragon springs to mind. So when Namco Bandai released Eternal Sonata. Fans of the JPRG genre (me included) got very excited.
