An anime based RPG? That sounds like our nightmare. It's amazing we gave it a 9.2


For two people who claim not to like RPGs, Allison and I truly enjoyed, "Tales of Symphonia." And, because we don't often delve into the RPG realm, I am at a loss to explain any deeper meaning of and/or history behind the Anime and style of the game and it's significance, if there even is one. I'm sure Lizking or Dane, among others, on the lunaboards could explain the nuances if you so desire.

What I come away with is the feeling that it is a great video game. We play so few great games anymore. You know, games that just feel right, that take you away to another land and place you directly into an epic circumstances. That make you care about the story. Zelda games are able to do that. This game is in the same ballpark, gives you the same feeling.

The game itself is a gigantic, vibrant, well-woven, real-time RPG with about 80 hours of gameplay. You do a lot of exploring and puzzle solving as you make your way around this seemingly breathing world. There are scores of cities and towns, many a mountain path, a floating city, a few scary forests and many dungeons. Unlike turn based RPGs, you fight in real time. That doesn't mean, though, that you don't have control over what the other members of your party can and can't do. You can customize your party's attacks, battle plan, spells, etc. and set them on a sort of autopilot (they have pretty good AI) and then play as Lloyd, the hero, slashing away the whole time.

The characters are wonderful, the environments are sometimes whimsicle, sometimes frightening. If you have the time and energy to get into a good game, this is a good choice. Do give it some time, especially if you are a beginner. It'll take a while to get hooked.

Speaking of beginners, this is a good RPG to get into if you don't have much experience in the genre. There is a wealth of in-game information including a comprehensive tutorials section. Of course, you're going to need help along the way so why not check out our Tales of Symphonia Walkthrough and Strategy Guide.
