At first glance the game was almost revolting when I began to play. I thought "Oh boy here's another drama..", but man was I wrong to have such low expectations. This game is a special case. It has a well organized and exciting battle system that gets really exciting as you progress through the game. You can have other friends come over and play along side you in combat that's fairly comparable to Star Ocean 3 or Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories and if you're by yourself it has an AI strategy system that allows you to make sure your other allies in the game become of value in combat. They have everything you'd expect from a Tales game and MORE if you have played one of the games. This game is a step up from their past games and if youre looking for a long jrpg and enjoy collecting, leveling, and LOTS of communication between characters, this is the game for you. Just what an amazing story. Amongst the artwork, the moving cutscenes, and voice acting that draws you in. This truely is a game to remember.
This game is one of the best Tales games I played since Phantasia and especially Abyss. Good graphics, story is good, alittle much on the whole friendship thing but good nonetheless. It's pretty challenging as well. All around good, long game. I recommend it. I'm buying it this coming paycheck.

What can I say? There are only like two bad things I can say about this game. One, it can be extremely difficult, even the regular enemies can sometimes be too much, even at a high level. The other thing I don't like about this Tales game is that you have to use titles to get better artes, I thought just leveling up and learning the artes was a better I idea. Besides that, there is nothing bad about this game, it has good voice acting, excellent game play, and above all a AMAZING STORYLINE! One of the main reasons that I went through this game in the first place is for the storyline. The fun doesn't even end at the main story, there is also something extra you can play as well. This is literally the best action RPG that I have ever played in my life, and yes, I do recommend buying this game!
