ZTGD Review: Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World

ZTGD: The Tales series is one of the oldest and most beloved amongst fans of JRPGs. One of the main reasons is because even in the ever-changing world of gaming it has stuck to its roots for better or worse. Dawn of the New World is certainly no different, and this is likely to continue to limit the game's widespread appeal, but it will certainly conciliate its fanbase. What we end up with is a direct sequel to popular Gamecube title that does nothing to innovate and instead focuses on ushering in the series to the Wii crowd complete with all of the typical JRPG clichés you have come to know and love (or loathe).
