Very Good

Tales Worth Hearing

The whole point of an RPG is to tell a story that is good enough to convince you it is worth suffering through endless repetitive battles. Tales of Legendia does just that. The plot keeps you interested and makes it hard to turn the game off at times. The voice acting is a little suspect and the main character is kind of a wuss, but for me it was the other characters that carried the story. The battles, except boss fights can be easily won by just pressing the X button repeatedly. Another good aspect of the game is that after you defeat the last boss you are only halfway through the game. The additional content is not just meaningless character development, but adds new things to do such as item synthesis. Unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it the voice acting is not present for the additional content. All things considered this was a very solid RPG and brings out all the RPG elements that we have come to expect from this genre. I give this game a 7.5/10.

The sequel to gamecube's Tales of Symphonia. Does it live up to the name? i think so. The combat system like most tales games in the past is fast action and addictive. the story line in intriguing even if it doesn't break new ground in story telling. But one thing i love most about this game is the character development. I loved all the characters and i really cared what happened to them. I have read some bad things about the game like too much fighting or slow world map walking. but it really isn't as bad as people complain about. you can drink potions that lower enemy encounters. One last thing, the anime scenes and awesomely done, really stylish and cool. And I'm not even really into anime.

graphics- 8
story- 8
game play- 9
sound- 9
value- 9 (lots to do after story is finished)
overall- 9

don't get me wrong this game is enjoyable to the BITTER end. but along the way you'll get tied up in numerous, repetitive battles while gaining extremely linear expierience. the character customization is also limited, allowing only certain weapons and certain accesories to certain people, and the worst part is there are very few accesories and weapons. i enjoyed this, but i doubt i would play through it more than once.
