First off let me tell you this is undoubtedly one of my favourate games throughout all of the games on market currently being saturated with unoriginal ideas or uninspired first person shooters. Placing this wonderful idea of a game all the back in 2007, but its age doesnt show too much at all. Showing definite promise from japanese rpgs much like the successful 2008 game Tales of Vesperia.

This game revovles around the famous composer Chopin in 1849 as he is on his deathbed only to drift through dreams and have an adventure full of twists,love,evil, and of course good. With totally inspired graphics,catchy writing and gameplay dynamics in battle and out of battle make this game truly unique. It would be a shame not to expirience this game or not all of it ,filling in some of the most critical parts of chopins life to provide backround and character development amonst the characters.

Even now after beating it twice and being on my third playthrough I cant wait to play in a world undescribable filled with chopins classic as it revovles around him and how he will try to comprehend how to make a piece of music showing emotions and life. He will try to understand what is really reality while at the same time chartering in locations beautiful and not so beautiful with a team of colorful people tackling on monsters,bosses, and a war against tyranny of epic porportions.

If its not clear already Eternal Sonata is a gem that very few know about and give great credit for. If you are looking for something new or are into appreciation for artistic things and a great RPG this is a match made in heaven. Games that think outside the box such as this remind me of mixing a great story like that of bioshock and a GREAT rpg like Tales of Vesperia really show that there is no over selling this game; it IS THAT WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its worth a least a try and of course a full purchase if you are as enthusiastic as I am.

I loved the story behind this game. However, I gave up and quit it about halfway through because battles seemed so slow and repetative, and some of the voice acting really irked me. I wanted to love this game, but I got distracted by other games halfway through, and that minor irritation let me just give up on it.

This game is the best turned based RPG for 360. The story line is great, the graphics are amazing, and if your not a fan of english dubbed you can chooses Japanese voices instead. Each Character has hes/her own personality that you grow to love. This game also features up to three player co-op when battling and each player can choose who they want to be. I really Recommened renting this game, It's a great game that I enjoyed more than anything for the 360. 10 out of 10!!!
