Rated 10 out of 10 by InuNaruPokeAlchemist Best Game I've ever played
10 years ago, I would have never have thought how much Tales of Symphonia would stick with me. I thought it would be one of those games I would out grow and move on from....man was I wrong. The first Symphonia is flawless. It has everything you want in an RPG. It has phenomenal characters, amazing story telling, and an epic journey to salvation. One thing it also has that I don't see often anymore: amazing character relationships. I loved the heck out of the game cube version, and I am already loving the HD re release even more. If you are considering playing this game, I recommend playing it with a friend or a family member. I played this game with my brother, and to this day we will both sit around and just talk about Symphonia. The sequel I can only recommend if you really want to know more about the new world. I liked the sequel don't get me wrong, but it didn't have as much of a lasting impression on me. Pick this up if you haven't yet!

Tales of Symphonia for the GameCube was the first ever Tales game I have ever sat down to play to 100% completion. It also got my best friend hook on the Tales series as well, which caused him to play its sequel for the Wii to 100% completion... Now, not only can we both relive our best moments from both of these games once again on one disk and in HD, but with this steller collector's edition filled with chibi figurines, a multi-disk soundtrack, a printed novel, a steelbook case, a special DLC Theme all in a limited collectible packaging... If you're living the #TalesLife like I am, you should not miss this limiting opportunity to pre-order this right away!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Sahhz My favorite game of all time.
I remember when I was a 12 year old girl, walking through Blockbuster wanting to rent an awesome game for my gamecube. I saw the artwork for Tales of Symphonia and asked my mom if I could try it. She told me yes. When I got home, it was like a brand new world. I fell so in love so fast with this game. It was truly wonderful. Tales of Symphonia became my life. I can't even tell you how many times I made her rent it until she finally purchased it for me. Symphonia started a Tales obsession that has never ended. From Abyss, Vesperia, Legendia, Graces, Xillia, Destiny, I just absolutely love them all. Symphonia will always be nearest and dearest to my heart. The themes of this game are so powerful. They really stuck with me growing up and things I still think about. I've always loved the characters and the relationships each of them can build with Lloyd. The gameplay is great although later Tales games that have free run in battles are still better in that aspect. The visuals are gorgeous. The story is wonderful. Everything about this game is just perfect. When I found out about the collectors edition I knew I had to buy it and I did. SO here I am, the day of release, sitting here at work dying to go home and open up the package that's sitting at home waiting for me. It's not just a game, it's the best part of my childhood and my now adulthood.

Tales of Symphonia for the Gamecube was my first Tales game and is still one of my favorite games! It offered sooo much from the little moments between the characters, which completely grow on you, to the amazingly deep story, to the exponential amount of content to reach 100% completion, so needless to say I was hooked. Then they made the sequel for the Wii, which couldn't compare to my love for the first game, but nonetheless, was great~! So seeing this has completely made my morning and can I just express my joy of finally having this game in HD? This collection has all of my feels and is well worth it, so pre-order it and you won't regret it! ;D <3

Tales of Symphonia is a very precious game to me! It's one of the very few 'long' games that I've ever completed, and gave me so much joy. I rented my copy multiple times before the video store I rented from offered to let me purchase it. I did, for about $8. I'm so super excited for the re-release, and I can't WAIT to have those Chibis!!! Preordered at my local GameStop with the minimum so I can pay the rest later. :) A must-have!

This is definitely one of the best collector's editions of any game I've ever bought. The chibi figurines are adorable, the soundtrack is amazing, the steel book case looks great, the art book is cool, and I'll find the time to read the novel. I do not and will not regret this purchase.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Klelslol Are you ready for the next evolution of Symphonia?
ONLY 4 MORE DAYS! Having just finished Xillia, I cannot wait until this collection comes out. It'll be the first time I've played either Symphonia or the sequel. And I get to experience it in glorious remastered HD. Plus, all the goodies you get just make it that much better! I hope the other 14,999 people enjoy this Collector's Edition as much as I will.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Wind21 So worth it.
Symphonia was my first Tales game ever, it got me into the series to the point where I've played ones that haven't even been released in america(tales of hearts, innocence, tempest, rebirth, destiny remake). If you're even thinking about playing it, do so.

These two game are amazing and to get so many things with a pre-order is amazing. A story of world regeneration and a lost child finding his way. So ready for this!!!!!
