 @kennyboy2020 there's a difference between having good graphics and having a completely different art style.  The art style helps give the player a better realization of the game world, in this case an anime jrpg while FF13 and FF13-2 are far from anime style.

It's already been over 1 month since this game was out. Where's the video review, GameSpot?

Reminds me of the Star Ocean series, which I totally got addicted to. I dabbled in the Tales series playing symphonia and I enjoyed it very much, even though I didn't get to play any other games. It's refreshing to see a game of this type as my preference is fantasy rpg :D

@gunslayer5 Story of my life. Tales saga may be one of the very few JRPGs I respect, but I go farther that than since I played Symphonia, my first one: I'm a fan.

I LOVE the Tales series.. I instantly fell in love after playing Tales of Symphonia on the gamecube and subsequently got a Wii to play Dawn of the New World :) NO regrets

I would buy a PS3 just for this game. I loved Vesperia that much.

I just discovered this awesome series of jrpgs, and wow how could I have missed these?? Just got Tales of Abyss for 3ds, this one is my next one I want to buy, then hopefully Tales of Xillia will come to US. I wish Vesperia was for ps3 :/ I heard it was really good

@Lykanthropie hey now buddy, im a jrpg nerd for life, but i still enjoy a daily dose of uc3 mp & coop. i dont think itll do anyone harm to like both of them. even then then storys are all worth one playthrough, at least.

75king57 Ah lol, well more and more characters keep coming so it's possible I'd definitely support it

@JinKisaragi Yhea but the fighting system is not like dessidia is more a Super Smash Brows and they should bring it to America

@75king57 They did make a Tales of fighting game, it's called Tales of VS and it's for Psp

So far i like tales of graces, though not as much as abyss and vesperia since had more world exploration than graces in addition combat system being a bit easier to use.

I'm really looking forward to this game! They don't make this type of games anymore... Can't understand why...

They should do a Tales of battle game, like Dissidia! :)

its good to see a ps3 jrpg and a ps3 game without best looking graphics - as jrpgs may dont have the best look - they are still better then crap like uncharted, killzone, resistance.

This is not a great jrpg but it's still actualy quite good.......and the simple fact that GS has no review for it is a good indication of the way they consider jrpgs in general.....

i wouldnt mind this going on the 360... i dislike the ps3's controller, and the achievement system

I feel like this would've been better on the Vita. Nevertheless, I am considering buying it.

I pre-ordered this game and I love it so far, I do wish it would get more attention. At least rate it ....

This game should be getting more attention. It doesn't do anything extremely innovative, but it's a solid JRPG. Gamespot: why you no review? I miss the PSone days of RPG glory and "Tales of Graces F" really helps sate the appetite.

Sweet! Didn't see it was coming out this week! Now I know where I'm going after work! Tonight is officially a gamers night! lol TheKungFool - I totally agree! SavoyPrime - I'm looking at the same series as you. /shrug ... they had a winning combination before, they should stick to it just like tales and suikoden does.

yeah, I'm with you Ron, probably going to pick this up soon. now we just need a Suikoden VI

I'm on-board. The Tales series is the only JRPG franchise that hasn't become trash in my opinion. *looks at the FF series*
