In their review of Eternal Sonata for the Xbox 360, Eurogamer had this to say:
"The wonderful narrative, great cast, enjoyable battle system and stunningly beautiful music and artwork are all compelling reasons to explore Chopin's deathbed dream. However, we can't escape the feeling that this isn't so much an eternal sonata, as an unfinished symphony."
"It's disappointing to see such a fantastic game being let down by a simple lack of variety - but it's worth noting that this flaw drags the game down from being an instant classic to being simply a great game, and one which is undoubtedly worthy of your attention despite its failings. If only to check out Frederic Chopin's monster-bashing special moves."
They gave the game a 8/10.
