Tales of Graces f
This game is awesome!
This is the first tales of game i have ever played and it was a great experience.The gameplay is fun and fast pased the characters are great and an easy to follow story.Though one critisism would be that it is to easy but other then that is a great game to start with.
One of the Weaker Entries
When I first heard about the Tales of Series, I hadn't realized how important it truly was. It took the great storytelling of the Final Fantasies and the epic sense of the DQ games and combined them. What could go wrong, right? Well, like the previously mentioned series, the Tales games have some weaker links in their chain of greatness. This game, which originated on the Wii in Japan and had game ruining bugs, is one of them. It was later released on PS3 with the fancy F next to it, which I believe means future. So anyhoo, onto the actual review. The game has one of more action-based approaches to combat in the series. If you're a more traditional Tales fan, you may not like it. I found that it got repetitive quickly...Sound in the game was okay. Nothing really remarkable. I don't think the game has a JA audio track, but with the exception of Asbel and Cheria, the English audio track is pretty good. The graphic are on par with early PS3 games, which is understandable since it once was on the Wii. The Story, however, is mediocre at best and gawdawful at worst...it's plot is decent and the villains are pretty good. However, I only have so much patience for a terrible protagonist, like Asbel Lhant, who is one of the most annoying characters I've ever seen. Furthermore, one of the heroines, Cheria, is just as cliche and boring. Let's just say they are meant for each other...Overall, this is a pretty tedious game that, while decent, isn't up to par with what you should expect from the Tale Series. If you're desperate for Tales action, either get one of the other games, wait for Xillia or try Nino Kuni...
Namco's Tales of Graces f
The feeling of having to battle in real time is something I love playing, being able to have a friend jump in at any time for backup.
Another Good Tales Game
I bought this game after beating Tales of Vesperia and to fill in some time for the release of Tales of Xillia. I've played about 60hrs and and the game stills hasn't really grabbed me, the story is really bland, the voice acting is horrible (for most characters, and don't get me wrong I loved the voice acting in Tales of Vesperia probably one of my favorite dubbed games so far) the characters feel really weak and fake, one of the main reasons it's hard for me to play long sessions, but the combat is pretty fun, it's really fast paced and needs a lot of studying of your artes (skills) to maximize damage against enemy weaknesses. Also the characters play differently so if you prefer a certain style of combat, there's probably a character for you. I really dislike the dualize system I find it really cheap and gives a reason for them (developers) to make less weapons and armor (and just to nit pick, accessories don't show up/change on the characters like they did in Vesperia and the lack of costumes; except the PSN ones). Also the world is (so far) really boring none of the places where mindblowning or was like "that's amazing/awesome". But all in all, if you played and liked previous Tales games you will probably like this, if not, you should probably do some more research on the game to see if this is something for you.
Near Perfect RPG
I have been in a real RPG kick latley and have not found much to compete with Ni-No-Kuni but this game is amazing in every way! If you like good story and better game play this game is for you!
Decent, But No Vesperia
While this game stands to be a pretty good game on its own, it definitely does not have the lasting appeal that Vesperia did. I didn't find myself having to grind or anything in this game, camp mobs for specific loot or anything of that kind. They even did away with the awesome open world where you can literally wander in any direction you want. Overall, while its a good game, it is a massive step backwards from what Vesperia was.
This is a game I'm glad I bought
Do not let the youthful look of the game deter you. It is amazing and a great story line. One advice, take your time and do every thing you can, it pays off in the end and helps with the replay value.
I'll admit, this game is very fun to play and has a okay story.. But to Me, This game is not as good as other game in the Tales series.
Characters seem uninteresting to me compared to other Tales characters. and the multiplayer fails in comparasion to Abyss in my opinion.
All that aside, it's an okay game. Not as good as other titles in the Tales series but okay.
Tales of Graces F=Amazing, Outstanding, Perfect!
I loved this game SOOO much! I think all of the "Tales" series are awesome. Tales of Graces F has so many discoveries, and side quests and twists and turns, and just thing you can do when you re done with the main story line (which is pretty long). There are a few charaters you can pick from, and you can form your own team.
My favorite game
As much as I love video games, it's very rare that I'm focused enough to actually see it to the end. With that said, this is the first video game I've beaten since Harvest Moon last year (if that even counts, I don't think it does). My favorite part about the Tales series is the awesome battle system each one has. While each Tales game seems like a repeat of the same characters, the battle system is always unique. Don't get me wrong though, I do love the characters development in the game and watching them grow. Especially the ones in this game, which you'll just have to see for yourself. I really love that there's titles for all 6 main characters to increase their attack/defense, give them new attacks, and make them less vulnerable to certain ailments and creature types. All in all, it's an awesome game that you should check out for yourself. Equal parts fighting, story, and puzzles, this is definitely my favorite game.
