OUT OF THIS WORLD
Best game I have ever played!
I have beaten this game 4 times already and it doesn't geting boring. This game is fantastic! It gives you hours and hours of gameplay and it always seems there is something to do. I have beaten this game and done all the sidequests and everything, its absolutly amazing. If you like RPG's and Anime you will love this game, no doubt about it. I loved the voiceovers for events and battle, sometimes (depending on who is in your party) they say some funny things after the battle to each other. This game will make you laugh, cry, and feel happy. The graphics are good, the sound is great, and the music will blow you away. This music is in game is either heartwarming or heartpounding, and it fits in with the situation. The controls for this game are simple and easy. I highly recommend this game to anyone even if its your first time stepping into the RPG world. This is definitely the best game I have ever played my all time favorite, highly recommended for anyone! =)
A Great Treat
Best. Game. Ever. It's just pure genius. The graphics aren't the best out there, but hey, it was made in 2004! The music is great, but the best of all is the plot. The plot is so amazing, that you'll get sucked into it right away. The ideas of the game are very creative. It teaches you life lessons that you could actually follow! I would say, it's educational.... somewhat. The plot also includes puzzles you have to get through. The plot is so rich in content that you'll never get too tired of the game. Everything is based on your decision. Are you an indecisive person? Well, save twice and make the two different stories! The creators want YOU to get involved in it. This is what's great about this game. Right when you think you've got everything figured out, something gets thrown at you that makes you think completely different (as stated by DiehardTalesFan). This game is one of a kind. You can't find other games with a rich plot like Tales of Symphonia's.
Made of Win!
Tales of Symphonia is without a doubt one of my favorite games, and in my opinion the greatest Game Cube game ever made. The plot is really well thought out as well as enough side quests for you to do to make you want to play for hours on end. As for the game play i have one word; Amazing. you are free to walk around the world, dungeons, and towns; as you walk around you will find theses shadow-like creatures/monsters walking around (and usually chase after you), if you make contact with these creatures you are thrown into a battle stage. the battles are live action with up to 4-players, allowing you to create multiple strategies. For the multiplayer, it is only for the fighting, it's more for the "experience" of the game rather than the actual storyline. Replay value is great too, depending on how well you fight, you gain points you can spend at the end of the game on an "EX new game" which gives you bonuses to make the game easier or more challenging. All in all : 10 out of 10
Tales of Symphonia Fanatics
By far, all the RPG games i have ever played, this one is the most superb. I'd like to get into the storyline first. It told you everything, there were no questions to be asked. Especially the cliff-hanging moments in which you think it's the end, but you're wrong. There's so much mind-blowing action and the length is perfect. Sure it may take hours and hours, but all of it is completely worth it. When playing Tales of Symphonia ends, you'll be so depressed that there is no more. I am a female, it's hard to believe but at first i thought i wouldn't like this game at all. Although i quickly got hooked up! Any male or female can play this. Tales of Symphonia is approximately 40+ hours, you'll want to continue to play. If you are into long games, that has fun action, challenges, and a great storyline, i recommend this game to you, and hope that you will buy it. This is the first time i've even been to amazed and addicted to such a game. I am positive that you will fall all over this RPG game, and give it rave reviews.
Best game EVER!
I loved this game and i have played it over 6 times! You'll never get bored of the storyline, the first time playing it around, it was so exciting! There was always a twist. And there were many side- quests too, just in case you want to take a break from the real story. I loved the soundtrack and the voices too, the graphics, I'd probably say is in the medium-good section for the Gamecube (the facial expressions and the setting were great, but there were some parts that make you think, "What the...") , and the controls were pretty easy to get used to too. It was challenging the first time around, the second was alright, and so on. It depends on how many upgrades you have from finishing the game. Well, overall, it was a great game that introduced me to the Tales series.
Tales of Symphonia is really the best you can get
If you like action, adventure, puzzle, or fighting games you should definately try tales of symphonia. You start off in a simple village with a non-agression treaty with the designs (main bad guys in the game), playing as Lloyd, the main character. Storyline: since ancient times, because of a giant tree which was the source of mana for Sylvarant ant tethealla being wilted and since ancient times, chosens have been selected from sylvarant to turn into an angel and sacrifice herself/himself to regenerate the world and stop the designs is the purpose of the sacrificing (or at least, that's what you think in the beginning. You will find out later in the game that the chosens think that they are regenerating the world, but are actually being used as bodies for the soul of martel, who you find out is the sister of the leader of the designs.) This game is definately a good game to buy. It may be expensive, but it is worth every penny. Please at least try this game and I assure you you will be satisfied. Overall, this is one of my favorite games.
The Best Game Of All Time!
You must play this game you will not regret, this game is 60hours of pure excitement. This is the greatest game of all time the story is phenomenal the game play is perfected. Buy this game you will not regret it I have personally beaten it 3 times and would play it again.
Great game full of everything an RPGer loves!
Tales of Symphonia was the first game in the Tales series I ever played and that was 6 years ago. Since then, I've gone back to the game again and again. There are 99 file slots for a reason! The graphics aren't the greatest but they're typical of the Tales games; the sound is good but can get a little repetitive if you've been playing nonstop for three days. Or less. All depends on how into a game you get. However, the story is amazing! Right when you think you've got it all figured out, something is thrown at you that puts everything you thought you knew into question. The characters are fun and believeable; you can't help but feel for them when something bad happens or be happy for them when it goes their way. Replaying the game never gets old in part because you can change the outcome based on your relationships with the other characters and the choices you make. All-in-all, a great game full of everything an RPGer loves.
I gift for the Gamecube... from heaven.
This game is just amazing... from beginning to end. When I say beginning to end, I mean literally. They needed to make the game into two discs! How often do you see that on the Gamecube!? The challenge level is perfect for RPG beginners and experts. The controls are simply amazing. Its all basic. A is to attack, B is for a special attack. X is guard, and Y is menu. The graphics are great. Great use of the Cel-Shading system. The length is great. It keeps you entertained for hours upon hours. What's even better is that there is a second play through that you can use your GRADE to buy double experience and carry stuff from your last play through. The sound is probably created through a synthesizer. A synthesizer that was blessed by the heavens. The story line is great. It has a lot of emotion, suspense, twists, and awesome. Perfect 10/10. The one word I would use to describe it is Awesome.
