    Awesome Game

    Great battle system, interesting story, and overall a really fun experience. I didn't really come across many. It starts off like a typical JRPG but the story evolves later on. I guess the dungeons followed a pretty basi... Read Full Review

    As a whole, Eternal Sonata is simply beautiful.

    Eternal Sonata came out of nowhere. It had nothing going for it aside from some fantastic artwork. That and it had the misfortune of being released a mere eight days before Halo 3. How fitting then, that Eternal Sonat... Read Full Review

    Stay for the Battle Systems!!!

    I was holding back this game when it was released on Xbox 360 and thankfully bought the PS3 version at a reduced half price. JRPG has always been my favourite genre and I was hoping to get the typical "Star Ocean"/"Tales... Read Full Review

    Typical run of the mill JRPG.

    I would have given this game a 5.5, but 1 whole extra point for music by Chopin. For the most part, it's a seen one, seen em all JRPG -- This is who we are, and this is what we do, this is where we're going, this is the ... Read Full Review

    A beautiful game with a nice battle system but little else

    Compared to other games of its genre, Eternal Sonata is, overall, a slightly above mediocre game that just never lives up to its full potentials. It starts off well and fine but becomes something of a disappointment in ... Read Full Review

    Eternal Bliss

    There aren't a lot of JRPGs on the XBOX360 and what ones there are aren't as special as promised. Eternal Sonata is a different story. It's a grand game that hits all the right notes. It has a few minor issues, but nothi... Read Full Review

    This game combines 3 of my favorite things: beautiful musics, cute cell-shading character design, and a +9999 damage!

    From the surface, this looks like a simple-standard-cute J-RPG that might not be as "hardcore" as Final Fantasy and the rest. But when you start playing this and absorb its story, this is a truly unique, one-of-a-kind g... Read Full Review

    Eternal Sonata will torment you for eternity.

    I should have known. When I first laid my eyes on the box art, I realized that I'm in for a very shaky ride. The determined faces of under-aged kids were plastered all over the front cover, but what do I know, the game g... Read Full Review

    One of the best rpg's i've played, i don't care what you say i rather play this than any final fantasy.

    At first glance it's a game that you wouldn't even think about playing but as soon as i started i just couldn't stop. Don't be put off by it's cartoonish graphics, because it suits this kind of game and makes the environ... Read Full Review
