hahah why is it in rumors i thought it was confirmed owell, kool i cant wait for thyis game looks good
I clicked on rumor then rapidly clicked on news and moved on...didn't realize it stayed a rumor and didn't switch to news..
Im an RPG fanatic, been playing them since Dragon Warrior 1. To tell you the truth, I played the demo to this game and fell so in love with the graphics that I bought the game. Its gorgeous. But the gameplay is really lame. I dont know why everyone is talking about this game like the ps3 needs it,, cause we dont need it on the console. Its just a plain ol boring game. Story sucks, and the gameplay is pretty much just like any Tales game, but worse.
dont know why they waste time with adding more content to this game it was a god awful jrpg. The graphics are great but the game itself sucked.
But I'm feening for more an 2 be honest any freaking MMORPG that envolves magic, classes, party that Kick A$$es! where our FFXI & EVERQUEST 2 at? Sony there are a lot of MMORPG players on this planet besides me. So Wazzup!
is eternal sonata coming to North America? because I own the xbox 360 version but I want to play a upgrade version.
I really don't care what else they add in this game I just want to play an RPG game so please just let me have it
there's a plethora of JRPG's you can play. i'm playing FFIV & FFVII right now :D heheh, but i agree, i'd love some PS3 ones. I've been wanting ES so i hope it makes it out ASAP. I guess single platform owners don't mind all the exclusive stuff they're adding in games for the wait. well worth it. can't wait for Valkyria Chronicles and Disgaea.
I hear ya. I need an rpg to plaaaaay.
...And I'm not talking about the cheesy GBA/DS ones. I'm talking about the ORIGINAL one! Make a sequel to that game with badass PS3 graphics and you have one hell of an RPG :)
To the Xbox owners: Was this game good? I'm thinking about it but I don't know how good it was, anyone who owned the XBOX version please tell me your impressions.
No, not really... Been so long since I've played it I forgot about it now.
nothing to get too excited over then
take a look at the review over at Gametrailers. i want this game and so will you
I really enjoyed it on the Xbox 360 BUT I will clarify. The story sort of sucks and makes no sense. I didn't care because the battle system was very very fun and I felt rewarded for leveling. The art style is really nice too. Basically if you play RPGs because you like the game style you will like this but if you play them because they are books you click through avoid it.
I love the music...as someone who loves chopin would.
the voice overs are pretty good, so you won't get annoyed.(Not like Enchanted Arms) As you know the game is a mix of Action-based/Turn-based. when it's time for you to Attack, you can Attack with whatever you have, based on a "Time Gauge". Once that runs out your turn is over. very similar to Tales of Verspia but only one can attack at once. The Story is where this game shines. You sorta go through the a Period in the life of "Frédéric Chopin", which the main story is about. You also learn about what was really happening during that time with illustration and real pictures in between. As well as the Music for this game is top notch. Obviously "Chopin" being a composer you get a good sense on his style, through the game. The game is a little short though and since monsters roam around the MAP(ala FF12) it makes it easy to run pass, unless they are blocking a road. I beat it in 24 hrs. As you know I'm a sucker for JRPGs with Good MUSIC and STORY. That's all it takes for me to at least finish a JRPG game. Regardless of the graphics. You'll also learn a little in this game as well. I think Frédéric Chopin lived during the Romanticicm period.
Thank you guys for offering your impressions.
everyone knew that if you watched video youll see something new i played the game and noticed that
Looking for a good RPG. It's either gonna be this or Folklore.
ive not played anything like it and the art style was nuts. you can pick it up on the cheap now.
omg, get Folklore. The are style in that game is something out of a Tim Burton movie. I really wish their was more for this game but I really doubt their going to make another one. If your looking for an RPG, you owe it to yourself to pick it up.
I knew I'd get some responses favoring Folklore. RPG's really aren't my thing, but I loved the Folklore demos. I'll most likely buy Folklore, I just threw that first comment out there to get some feedback ;)
is much much better than Eternal Sonata.
Walmart actually has Folklore for $30 and if you can find it, Target was having it on clearance for $15. Good time to pick it up. :)
Eternal Sonata got 8.3 Blue Dragon 7.9 Go with Folklore and read the IGN review first. :)
I recently bought Folklore and it's pretty good. Such an underrated gem. The storyline and storytelling will have you hooked to the game. It's well done and keeps you entertained. The gameplay is fun, especially using the sixaxis to capture the folk's ids. Capturing all the folks and releasing their karmas will keep you busy and there is tons of downloadable content for it.
Folklore is the game that actually make me purchase a PS3 (Cause there is no other that interest me at the time). You will not be dissapointed, it's really fun capturing all the Folks and don't forget to download some extra Contents from the PS Store, it really makes a lasting impression. I really do hope they make a sequel, and maybe next time with more PS3 owners out there, it will be appreciated even more.
i wonder how long it will take for Tales of Vespria to come to the PS3
6 or 7 months after the xbox360 release. If really it going o come into the PS3 library... If Eternal SonAta sells well on PS3 I'm sure that Vesperia will follow the same treatment sooo GO AND BUY ETERNAL SONATA AND PROVE THAT ps3 OWNER WANT MORE RPG =P
I might pick this up since I don't have the 360 version.
I didn't catch this on 360, and if they are throwing in more maps I think I may have to grab the PS3. I love it when they throw in bonus stuff. Like in Skies of Arcadia for the Game Cube.
Bout dam time! I almost thought they canned the PS3 version seeing how we didn't hear anything about it since it was actually announced in what? last fall? Can't wait to play this :)
Everyone's acting in civil manner. N4G should be more like this. *Looks for flying pigs*
the game was very poor. Turn based button mashing battles, most annoying characters in a game yet, linear gameplay, horrible camera angles, no side quests, way to easy to get money etc... Its the worst JRPG Ive ever played, and with Valkyria Chronicles just around the corner I wouldn't even rent this.
Dont get me wrong, the devs that made this are freakin masters of art. Eternal Sonata is probably the most beautiful game I have ever seen. But it just fails miserably at being a good rpg. It lacks everything that an RPG should be, and that is story, gameplay, sense of adventure and being able to explore and look for treasure. You just cant get any of that stuff out of this game. The gorgeous graphics just cant make up for any of that stuff.
this game is one of the biggest reasons I will never trust a review ever again, biggest waste of $60 ever.
I bought this for X360 back on release day and I loved the game, then I traded it to someone for EDF2017, Splinter Cell Double Agent and a Play & Charge Kit a couple of months later, but I will say that Blue Dragon got thrown off hard because of this and I STILL haven't finished Blue Dragon, even though I want to, but ES screwed me up with that. Good game though, hope you PS fans enjoy it and not bash it to hell like most X360 fans I have seen, which was upsetting.
I only played the demo on 360. I might pick this one up.
I wanted this game, but it came out before I had a 360, then I heard there was a PS3 version, so when I got my 360 I decided to wait, so they extra content will be nice. I love the idea behind the story. It's such a nice, melancholy concept.
Loved this game on the 360. What really stands out is the music, it's amazing.
Does it make good use of surround sound?
This game blows. Rent it instead.
cant wait for this game. love rpgs. just hope it makes it to europe.
yep, its coming to Europe, just look it up in play.com, the problem is, that the 360 version costs 20€ and the ps3 will cost 55€... I think I will wait to March 2009 to buy it, if I ever buy it.
