A Solid JRPG
rated 4.0 out of 5

This being the first JRPG I completed on the PS3 system, I had a feeling it was gonna be a good experience. The characters and the story are really good, the graphics are awesome especially on an HDTV. The controls take a bit to get used to, but once you do the game becomes easier to play. I really liked the battle system it's very different from anything else you'll play especially if you like JRPGs in general. The sound gets a lower 7 because some of the voice acting is terrible, they could have used better actors especially for the younger childlike characters you get. But other than that it's a great game.

A Great Game For Experienced and Novice Gamers

I first came across this game when I randomly decided to purchase a game from gamestop nothing particular in mind just wanted something to play and return in a few days. I ended getting a surprisingly enjoyable game that peak my interest for way longer than I expected. Now yes i will say graphics are average and storyline is very predictable and not very in-depth but honestly it was just a fun game. For those of you like myself who are gamers but have friends less than interested in a 80hr gaming experience this works perfect as a intro to rpgs, while still having the option of more intense gameplay to satify the more seasoned gamer. Play this inbetween your annual purchases and main games and you'll find yourself a very enjoyable story and phenominal music n eternal sonata

Eternal Sonata is AMAZING!

Introduction: Every few years you play a game that really takes everything to the next level. This is one of those games people! Pros: Eternal Sonata is one of those games that just captures you from beginning to end. I thought for a while about buying the game because it seemed kind of childish. Boy was I 100% wrong about that notion. The story of Eternal Sonata is amazing and it gives you some real hardcore facts about life. It talks about everything from life and happiness to anger and death. There wasn't really any main characters in the game because everyone had a story that needed to be told. The ending was just revolutionary because they created an amazing ending that no other video game has ever tried before. Some of the issues in this story can relate to anyone in the real world. Everything from: Taxes, hunger, the poor, evil political figures, illness( and how people act towards you), death, life, rebirth, wars, sacrifices, living life to the fullest and actually doing something great with it, positive hobbies, protecting people, betrayal, spiritual, and love. Basically, Eternal Sonata has everything a great story should have, and that my friends is an adventure!. Also another great part about the story of Eternal Sonata was Chopin, man could that guy play the Piano! His adventure on his death bed was something that will touch you and never make you forget. The adventure starts with Polka and Chopin and then the adventure takes off from their. The length of the game was just right, it was about over 50 hours of game play and that;s what most games should be like these days. The music was amazing! As stated before Chopin is definitely the "Poet of the Piano." Everything thing he played related to an actual real life event that happened in his lifetime. This creator of this video game was very clever and created a master piece. Nearly all of Chopin's music was displayed in the video game and the story board director of the game was correct by putting all of his work in this video game. Chopin's music is absolutely the best piano music ever! I loved the graphics because it takes you back into a fairy tales that our parents used to read to us when we were young. Their was no lag and no glitches with the graphics, everything performed smoothly. Also the art team worked really hard trying to make everything seem real and natural as possible within this video game and it worked. They even had background changes at certain places in the game to show you how they can create a real depiction of the earth. The characters face expressions where amazing and when the wind blew their clothes were effect by the wind. All i can say is that they did a fantastic job on the graphics. All the fighting in Eternal Sonata was amazing. They made sure to add some great fights in the game and they also were very challenging. Just like any RPG you have to level up your characters to be able to prepare them for a tough fight. It's just like real life training, you want to make sure that you have had enough training before you enter a fight. The combo system was nice and they added echoes and harmony chains to increase your fighting skills. One of the best things about the fights were that you didn't run out of special attacks. I thought this was one of the best features they could have added to an RPG. No more waiting to build up your magic bar or having to go to the item shop to buy magic points. Your special attacks are unlimited. the action gauge was something new to this video game that I haven't seen other RPG's try before. The action gauge really kept you on your toes and you have to strategize how you would win the fight. Their was a slight problem and that was the item system that you used to help the character party. You had to memorized them before you enter battle and sometimes you forget what the item actually does. However, realistically speaking you would have to memorize what medicine is used for a certain illness, so it

An RPG must have

Released late2008, previously released for the 360, Eternal Sonata is one RPG that any fan would enjoy having. Released by Namco Bandai, behind games such as the Tales series and Xenosaga, Eternal Sonata finds a comfortable place among fellow RPGs.In the game you play a young girl named Polka, a part time thief named Allegretto, his partner Beat, and a mysterious man named Frederic. Without revealing to much, you encounter fellow people that assist you along the way and eventually have all one goal, to stop a madman.Despite looking somewhat like a last gen RPG, Eternal Sonata is visually stunning. The environments seem full of life and the combination of colors makes it look like a painting come to life.The attacks performed in the game look quite amazing and fun to watch over and over. The gameplay is familar to some other RPGs but with a nice twist. While on the battlefield, your special skills change depending if your're in the light or in the dark. At first, it seems kind've odd, but as soon as you get further in, you'll appreciate the twist.As for the music, Eternal Sonata has a host of great music inside and outside of battle. Included in the game, there is a section in the menu where you can listen to all the music in the game, including the composer himself, Frederic Chopin.Overall, Eternal Sonata is a great RPG, that seems to be overlooked due to it's cuteness, but don't be fooled, this game is quite challenging. The only problems with the game is how linear it is, and sometimes confusing story involving Chopin and Polka.
