Eternal Sonata has a fun addition to the rpg fight style with turn based style but adding a twist of real time fighting. The story is ok and some of the characters are extremely annoying but it is still worth renting. The biggest downside and a huge reason I didn't finish the game is the ever changing character line-up. All the work you put in to building a character doesn't matter at times because for a few hours you an't play as those characters. All in all the game is good and worth playing.

I think this game is outstanding. The graphics are well developed, the story line well thought out and captures the imagination. At first, I thought it a game more for children or younger teens but I was very impressed with the unique battle sequences, cut scenes and the dual ending. This game was amazing from start to finish and I couldn't pull myself away from it. It also helps that it's a multiple player game, so grab a friend and play your hearts out. With historical facts from Fredric Chopin's life, real authentic works of his music and life like vocal qualities, this game is sure to please even the most discerning RPG fan.

Eternal Sonata for the PS3 & 360 has a very interesting storyline and extensive cast of characters. Personally I am not very big into studying about music, but after experiencing this game it actually gave me some motivation to research a few things and get a better grasp on the story.
For a game that is based on a some-what true story it is actually very interesting; unlike others in the past.
One thing that can be annoying at times is boss monsters. There are points in time where you have to use an active button-press sequence to block, counter-attack, etc. Some of the bosses can terminate one or many characters in a single blow if you fail to block the attack.
Overall I would rate this game with a 9 for all categories, with an exception for the soundtrack it would get a 10. If you like classical music this game is definately one worth picking up.
