Flashes of the day, I knew I was here to stay, but no one stays the same

Summary:


Let's get one thing out of the way - Tales Of Symphonia and Tales Of The Abyss are two of the greatest JRPGs ever made. Even if the former has a few horrible puzzles and the latter has tons and tons of filler, what they do right, they do it so right that other games (nevermind just JRPGs) get jealous. They're both games that ought to be played before you die. With that being said, there are other Tales games, both before and after this one-two punch. No, they're not as good, but god bless them for trying. Oddly enough, Graces kind of zig zags around this as what it does well, it does really...

Another successful Tales installment

Summary:



I’m a relative newbie to the Tales series. Having only just played, Xillia, which I thoroughly enjoyed, I jumped into Graces F, full throttle, with the greatest of expectations. I was rolling at full pace, for a few hours, and then I stopped. The early stages of the game failed to grip me. Maybe it was because I was expecting something like Xillia, or maybe because it seemed a little too childish. You see, the start of the game, much like the rest of the story, is quite hit and miss, and the level of care I had for the characters being much the same. Maybe I’m being too harsh, or perhaps I...

Graceful charity

Summary:


The Tales series is one that I've always wanted to admire... but no, I had to be born, raised and living in the wrong country to actually experience these games. I'm not sure if Namco has no faith in the Tales series selling well in Australia or in general, because in Australia, we only have Tales Of Symphonia and Tales Of Vesperia available. In fact, had it not been for the fact that the PS3 is region free, I would never experience Tales Of Graces F, and although I would definitely say that Symphonia and Vesperia are better games, Graces F is still a good game that is well worth your time....

Graced With a Great Game

The good:

  • Strong Cast of Characters
  • Improved Skit System from the rest of the series
  • Well-Rounded Battle System
    • Title System and two battle styles for each character
  • Beautiful Art Style
    • Features anime videos and CG-style cutscenes
  • Incredibly expansive in terms of material
  • Great customization for characters and equipment

The bad:

None. This game really is perfect! It's very well-rounded in terms of battle system, content and gameplay. Any RPG or Action-Adventure fan will enjoy this game.

Summary:

Tales of Graces F is the first installment in the Tales series to be released on the PS3 outside of Japan. As such, many people are a little unsure of what to do - buy the game or skip over it. I can honestly say that you won't regret buying the game, and here are some reasons why:


A new feature in this game is something called the Dynamic Skit System. While the skits in the Tales series have always been fun to listen to, they really haven't been that entertaining visually. However, with the inclusion of the new skit system, that all changes in Tales of Graces F.

The Dynamic Skit System allow...

Tales of Graces F:riendship Is Magic!

The good:

- Great storyline.
- Great character development.
- Great graphics.
- Great music.
- Great and improved gameplay, in and out of battles.
- Lots of surprises and easter eggs.

The bad:

- Despite the great graphics, the game doesn't run at a full 1080p resolution.
- Sidequests are essential to get a better understanding of the characters. They are not needed, but it's not ideal for the casual gamer looking for a great storyline without having to play much.

Summary:

Another GREAT Tales game! Namco-Bandai return to deliver us a great game with a different yet touching storyline and deep characters. After Vesperia's poor effort in delivering a beautiful storyline, Tales of Graces F has saved the Tales Of series with it's epic storyline. Although the theme of the game is simplistic, don't expect any less! The creators did a great job to ensure the topic in hand is something that affects us in many ways, so don't expect to be disappointed after playing it.

The story of the game is beautiful. If you have played some previous Tales games, specially the most p...

The bad:

Nothing

Summary:

I have been a Tales fan ever since I put my hands on Tales of Symphonia. The majestic story, character, and battle system are passed by none in this genre besides Final Fantasy. But it has been a long time since I have been able to get my hands on one, until now.

Tales of Graces F was made for the Wii in Japan in 2009 now. The game finally got re-vamped with tons of extra content and sent to America on the PS3. It follows the story of a young boy named Asbel his brother Hubert and his friends Cheria, Sophie, Pascal, Richard, and Malik. It starts out with Asbel, Hubert and Cheria as children...
