EGM reviews Eternal Sonata and gives it 6/8/7.
I was hoping for a bit more. It's EGM and not the best source for reviews IMO but I still fear that it may end up like Enchant Arms and Blue Dragon. Good but not great.
The same fear you had for Lair, Heavenly Sword & Warhawk?.
Doesn't take long to get some bad news about one of their games....to kick it back at the PS3 eh?
6/8/7 averages 7/10 not 6/10... still not great but the title is misleading.
It doesn't take long for Sony fanboys to roll around in bad 360 news like a Hog in a mud pit/puddle. It was simple and directed at him I remeber him saying after one bad review after another how it doesn't matter. did you say something eh?. The post was more to do with his logic than the games themself no need to get offended.
@ at power of green thanks for clearifying that. i was bout to curse u out to. good thing we didnt come to that
The bar for making rpgs is incredibly high, i for one didnt expect mucvh from namco bandai i have tried a few of their psp rpgs and not one of them is beyond decent.
Eternal Sonata looks like it will be another Blue Dragon, now saying that I actually enjoyed Blue Dragon more then most RGPs coming from Japan (hate random battles). On the bright with all the mixed reviews lately more people are finding out that reviews are a perspective and not a true measure of a game's quality.
well that su(ks
another 360 RPG? Im starting to think 360 and RPG dont quite mix.
At least jrpgs for the looks of it.
I still have faith in Lost Odyssey. They game has limitless potential.
Especially don't forget about MASS EFFECT Damn, biggest RPG of the coming time
TheMART, we were talking about J-RPGs (Or at least I was). No one doubts Mass Effect or Fable 2. KOTOR 3 could also be on it's way.
Exactly why you'll only see shooter games on the 360. Give me a AAA game that doesn't involve the words "First-Person- or Shooter".
Mass Effect isn't the biggest upcoming RPG, its Final Fantasy 13
LOL, final fantasy has been going downhill since FFX-2 Edit: PS360Wii i meant the main FF's not the online one. FF11 was a damn good game and is one of the best online rpgs ever.
FFXIII biggest upcoming RPG? Pssh, I've been a hardcore FF fan since FFI, but they've been hit or miss ever since FFVIII and after the string of FFX-2, XI, and XII I'm not at all interested until they actually show something legitimately interesting. Instead, they've failed to show any new material at all the new game cons this year, leaving a single old trailer or two from E3 2006 as the only bit of info on the game. Gee, it has another past-meets-future setting, and a main character that looks like someone out of the previous 2 games...big surprise. Wake me up to SquareEnix when Final Fantasy Tactics II comes to PS3 or 360 (and none of that dumbed down, "lite" Tactics Advance crap). Either that, or when they stop massacring the Secret of Mana franchise.
hey I'll give you X-2 and XII but don't be messing with XI cuz that game was subperb in all aspects and still is a really great game. PC version I'm talking about for I can't really see how mmo's work without a keyboard Edit: alright Lex! I'll give you a bubble up for that ^^ one of the best for sure
Anything japanese on Xbox 360 is a steaming pile of crap unless it's made by Capcom, which are by far the best japanese developers. Oblivion was great, Mass Effect will be awesome.
d'ah well, i'm still gonna pick this up.. fell in love with the demo and the art style is amazing + the fighting is top notch. I wonder if the story holds up
should be killer
OMFG!1!!1eleven!1 BIAS!!! Oh, wait - sorry - this isn't negative Sony news. Carry on then.
I am sure nobody is forgetting about Mass Effect, as you seem to remind everyone.. every chance you get. I am still surprised Mass Effect is being called an RPG to begin with though. Seems more of an action title than a full blown RPG. At least from what I have seen of it. I could be wrong. On subject though: I was really hoping this would be a better game. I was not all that impressed with the Demo. Much like Blue Dragon, the Demo just didn't grab me and say I AM AWESOME. I am still expecting some better reviews, as I have seem much worse games get higher scores.
never played a jrpg untill the BD demo. liked it so much i bought it. same the with Eternal sonata. liked the demo for that more than BD and i bought it also completely paid for it already.
dont care if only got 6/10 i want the game for ps3 ...
hmmm well i will get this game anyway, the music and the artstyle is great.
6/10? can't you guys read? people on this site is PATHETIC. it's 7/10 from EGM read it again. it's 7/10
Everyone is reading the 6/10 from the heading. MK_Red only put the 6 in the heading to get his percentage up.
but it's cool, Game Informer gave it an 8.25...it's not perfection...maybe worth a buy at $29-$39 in my opinion...or a rent...
I have no hope for j-rpg in 360 nee more.
Lost Odyssey has great potential. Also, Square is going to release an RPG (Last Remnant?) on 360. But does 360 really need J-RPGs? Mass Effect, Oblivion, Fable 2 and possible KOTOR 3 are more than enough for any RPG lover and adding not multiplatform Fallout 3 to the list makes it complete for me. (Personally, Fallout 3 alone is all the RPG I need).
I think j-rpg is there because MS would want 360 to tap into Japan's market. MK-Red list is impressive, but looking at poony 360 sale in Japan I said MS has to do whole lot more.
I just don't understand all this hate for Blue Dragon. It a great RPG that takes all positives from past rpgs and mixes it well. I think the only thing people hate about it is that the main characters are kids and it's not blood and guts. Eternal Sonata I have played the demo and I for one never liked hack and slash button mashers disguised as RPG's which is why I'm only sticking to playing the demo. Oh and yea looking forward to Lost Odyssey for sure! Mass Effect... take it or leave it but it will do well even without me ^.-
