Yup, going to get the 3DS later, I have the origanal PS2 game, Loved it! Now I can't wait till I have Jade in my hands, being able to play as him again. GO JADE GO! *blush* <---ish female.
I wish that the intro song had the original lyrics "Karma" and not in the instramental, I can practically remember lyrics from watching it a lot on a video player. So I have the lyrics going through my head as I watch the intro.

Tales of the Abyss 3D - A Masterpiece Reborn
First and foremost, let it be known that this game is a direct port of a PS2 game. However, this port actually may be better than the original simply because of the controls and touch screen. I never used the cooking function in the original, for example, and now I cook after almost every battle because of how user-friendly the touch screen makes choosing recipes. The same can be said for battles. Rather than R3 button on the PS2 version, shortcut commands for artes (special attacks) are assigned to the touch screen, which makes spell casting loads easier. As for an actual review of the game, the graphics are great (although simply a port), the sound is crisp and clear, the musical score is BEAUTIFUL, the characters are dynamic and enjoyable (Especially Colonel Jade Curtiss and Anise Tatlin), and the gameplay is classic Tales. A+ game. Love it to Daath... I mean death!
This game is the best rpg ive played in a good while. I love it so much, I havent got into an rpg lthis hard since Final Fantasy 10. This is just the game I needed. I didnt get to play this on PS2 so it was a must have because I got burnt out on Super Mario 3d Land and Mario Kart. Those are amazing games I love them but it was time for something new. I was ready for a good rpg but I was skeptical of this game for some reason. Man have I been missing out. THis is a must have 3ds title. 40plus hours of gameplay. Im glad I got this. The only negitives that I have found and there so small. Is there are some sequences that arnt voiced, and the 3d isnt amazing but its still good. Nothing that takes away from gameplay or the wonderfull story at all. Those are just things that would of made me give it a perfect score. Please please please pick this up if your thinking about getting it. you will not regret it.
A truly spectacular, full-fledged RPG for the 3DS. A great buy for any 3DS owners who are looking a intuitive, exhilarating, and face-paced game. As a port of a PS2 game, Tales of the Abyss 3DS has tons of content that will keep you glued to your handheld for hours. For any comeback players, who have experienced the game already on the PS2, it offers a fantastic feeling of nostalgia and the removal of those pesky loading times that plagued the console version. A serious contender for the 3DS library.
My 1st Tales of game and I LOVED IT!!!
I hadn't heard of the tales series before this sadly. I feel like I have been missing out on a lot of fun. This game was perfect for the 3DS. It was a great first time RPG game for me. I loved all of the characters and animations. I want more of the Tales series so I pre-ordered Tales of Graces and am looking into Tales of Vesperia. I can't wait :D... Overall I was OVERLY satisfied with Tales of the Abyss 3DS
I played the first, and was in love with it pretty soon off. It was my first Tales of game, that led me into the whole series. I would love to buy it, considering it was my favorite of the Tales games, sadly though I won't be getting a 3DS anytime soon. To those who don't know the series though, it is a truly amazing game, its very deep and emotional, and goes into character stories pretty well, all the characters have connections with each other, does not feel like half your party doesn't talk with the other half. I think the Skits, help with that some, which I hear will be voiced, which is nice. There is a very large amount of side quests that I feel make up a whole other chunk of the game, and you learn a lot more from them. Personally I find the story to be rather unique. It's also a good game to get you started on the series, though I feel Tales of Symphonia , is the very best to start the Tales series, considering it fills you in with a lot of the things traditional to the Tales series. In any case Tales of the Abyss is certainly worth a buy.
A Great Throwback!
Tales of the Abyss wasn't my favorite tales game but bringing to the 3DS with some slight changes was a great wager.
Unlike "Tales of Symphonia Chronicles", I feel like bringing back this game was a huge success. It would have been a great idea to bring Symphonia to the 3DS instead of PS3.
I highly recommend this game for anyone who wants to sit back and enjoy a story with some exciting gamplay in between.
I picked this game up in a sort of haul after I got my 3DS XL, expecting it to be a run of the mill RPG with monsters and objectives and magic. What I got was a fully fleshed out story with bright characters and exciting places to explore. I had read a couple of reviews on it that said great things but I usually take those with a grain of salt. After getting into the flow of the combat style, it all went uphill from there. I've found myself feeling happy, sad, frustrated, overwhelmed, and even laughing a couple of times at the banter between the characters. There's lengthy dialogue that can feel endless at times but if you let yourself you can become immersed in the story and the growing relationships between your characters. Plot twists, exciting battle moves, and boss battles that require a little more than going head first with a barrage of attacks makes Tales of the Abyss a game I'll end up cherishing for a long time.
A new perspective.
Of coarse some of you may be wondering, "Why should I buy this when I can just buy the PS2 version for cheaper?" Well, here's your answer; first off, FASTER loading times! On the ps2 version, the loading times took forever! Second, it gives you a closer, in dept look at things. This is my first time playing this game on the 3DS and I swear, even after playing this game 3 or 4 times on the ps2, I noticed things I've never even noticed before on the 3DS. And lastly, it's a tales game. It has a wonderful storyline (further on) and the gameplay is just great!
