Tales of Pwn or Fail?

I started playing his game going in with the idea that the game was gonna be just another tales classic Well I was wrong, I was introduced to Poke'tales XD. It has the GREAT classic game play you would expect from all the other tales game with a Pact of monster taming showdown. over all it was a good game none the less :D.

Pros:
Classic Tales Game play, Fun monster system, Lots of old friends, Twistful story.

Cons:
Short Game only about 30 hrs here :/ , Only 2 Perm. Party members, Colosum took a pit fall, Irratating Voice acting xD

How did this get above 6 from the Critics?

After playing into the second chapter and reading the Critic Reviews, I agree with most of their comments. However, if they gave this game a 3 rating, then Namco should be thrilled. How the critics can give it above a 6 rating is beyond me. Apparently "Bug-Free" is alone enough to get a 5 rating!

If you are good at the combat system, then you might be able to watch the movie that is packaged with this title. The "role" play in this is entirely railroaded and dull. You don't play any of the characters except to cause them to go where the plot demands them to go.

I also couldn't figure out how this is any different from the original. The controls are identical to it and this title does nothing to use the abilities of the Wii, you might as well play with the GameCube controller, though I'm not sure this is possible.

One redeeming feature is that you CAN skip the cut scenes, in the case that you aren't so great at the combat system. But even if I was flawless at the combat system, I'm not sure I'd care to watch the associated movie.
