IGN gives 8.3/10 to Eternal Sonata - In the end, it's all just a dream

Eternal Sonata has a premise that can be described in no other way than wildly imaginative. You may even be a bit incredulous when you first begin playing, but it won't be long before you begin to appreciate the great care that was taken to ensure that the tale isn't just an exercise in lunacy. The idea is this: Frederic Chopin, the famous pianist and composer, is on his deathbed having a fevered dream. The game takes place inside that dream. The heroes may have a typically anime design, but the idea here is anything but typical. This original concept, along with a colorful and detailed design, is enough to make up for a few shortcomings in the JRPG experience.

although this game is out of my budget for this year (due to so many other top games) can't wait to pick it up next year

Looks great and love the art style

and people thought viva pinata was girly? sorry but ill pass on this, playing as a pretty wee girl bashing bad guys with an umbrella isnt my style

pshizle3909d ago

at least it scored higher than HS and Lair...=)

ironwolf3909d ago

Quite a bit higher. But then, more and more, that's coming to be expected.

I am excited about this game. I wish they could step up the voice acting in these type of games, but oh well. The art style is nice and I look forward to seeing more of it.

I wanted this game to be good, but one thing that bothers me is the part where it says when you change weapons/armor, your character looks the same. That's pretty lame. Also, the fixed camera and small cities killed it for me. Maybe bargain bin purchase.

Hmm yet the in all proclaimed god of RPG's FF, the character never looked different when they got armor upgrades and the like. Yet they were good games? Just seems to me a really crappy reason to dislike a game...

but gay people are usually picky. You know, like when you pick the baggy jeans to wear and they flip out.

be straight not narrow.

Bnet3433909d ago

Isn't narrow and straight sort of the same thing? LOL is that some kind of chinese proverb? I'm being serious here, I would like to know.
