The perfect rpg

User Rating: 10 | Tales of Eternia (Premium Box) PS
Tales of eternia ( not to be confuse with ps2' title tales of destiny 2, the real sequel of tales of destiny) is a very masterpiece in almost every aspect.
This game in the western country is one of the less popular tales of game, seems that no one know about this ( thanks the poor market strategy of namco that released tales of eternia for psone in the ps2 era at the same time of final fantasy x) and this is why the game is criminally underrated.
The fantastic gameplay and the outstanding character development are the strong point of the game.
