  • 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 pick up halfway through.

Eternal Sonata Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • 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. Of course, there’ll always be achievement junkies looking for some boost to their Gamerscore.

  • 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. Don't be surprised if the story leaves you scratching your head at parts but that's a small price to pay when you look at the whole package. I suppose the question will be out there as to whether or not this game is better than Blue Dragon.

  • 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. The story may be a little confusing for some, but if you can follow along, you'll enjoy every second of the ride.

  • 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. The game follows the interesting events that take place during his lifetime, and are beautifully represented with an accompanied ongoing adventure using his thoughts and dreams as he fights against tuberculosis.
  • 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

Eternal Sonata Review (360)

Yet Another Review Site
6 January 2008
  • 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. If you had been following it’s journey to release from its early import days (when it was known as Chopin’s Trusty Bell?or something equally odd!
  • Pros: Simply breathtaking graphics,rich combat & striking score
  • Cons: Only 20 odd hours gameplay, too wiered for some tastes & can be hard if you do not grind out the levels.

  • Summary: En definitiva: Altamente recomendable para los que gustan de los juegos RPG y para los que exigen grandes detalles, originalidad y alta calidad en todos los sentidos, que además viene con un aspecto audiovisual que muchos otros juegos desearían tener.
  • Cons: El mejor tributo para "El poeta del Piano"., El aspecto visual es encantador, uno se queda enganchado con los detalles, colores y modelos., El apartado musical es excelente., El doblaje al ingles, español es bastante apropiado, lo mismo que la traducción al español., La historia es completamente lineal., Algunas batallas se parecen demasiado.
