Very Good

Maybe a bit Nonsensical

This game was good, it had many of my favorite types of combat, the enemies are clearly represented on screen, instead of the route final fantasy took with random encounters. And its a controlled area with free motion, which really gives you tactical room to maneuver. The characters are waaaaay to cheesy, they lacked much personality and never spoke there age. Face it a 14 year old boy would be cussing his fanny off. And wouldn't it be great to have a awesome fight scene SOMEWHERE?? This game feeds the urge for a RPG well, but it also kinda ticks you off. The battles can be a little cheap, and you will be forced to grind for a while. And its to short to really keep you going for to long. There seems to be a lack of conflict through this game as well, there really doesn't seem to be anything that you really need to do. The main conflict is the entire world around you, but your not involved in that at all. I give this game an 8, its good but it could be great, had it just grown up just a little.

Really Bad

Eternal Sonata hits a flat note.

This game was not very good. The FMVs are very confusing and the game does not draw you in. It feels more like a poor man's rip-off of the Final Fantasy series. I originally rented this game because I enjoy playing RPGs but this is one of the few RPGs that left me feeling bored from the beginning. I would not recommend this game.

Finally a good rpg came out for playstation 3 and so far this is the best i played for rpg genre.
The game play, the story, the graphics and the characrers are nothing compare to enchanted arms.
if your really a rpg fan, i suggest you try this first before listening to other reviews.
