Jae Lee writes: I remember picking up my Gamecube thanks wholly to the release of Resident Evil 4 and once I had one of my own, I began to track down other notable titles that were released for it.
Right at the top of that list was “Tales of Symphonia” a multi-disc epic RPG from Namco, and when I finally got my hands on it, I wasn’t disappointed.
The story, characters, combat engine and even the graphics were excellent for its time, and I had a blast seeing the adventures of Lloyd and company to its conclusion.
Over ten years later, the title and its lesser known sequel make their debut in HD, and while some aspects of the experience haven’t aged too well, it proves once more that a good story and a likable cast of characters is timeless. 8.0/10
