Bitmob - You Should Play… Eternal Sonata

Bitmob - What was going through the mind of Frédéric Chopin in his final hours? If we're to believe Tri-Crescendo, his waning moments would seem to have been spent traveling a colorful storybook world, his companions with names like Viola and Jazza. It's actually an idea that's loaded with potential and one that perhaps could have been masterful in the right hands. It's the kind of premise that screams for the sure hand of someone like animation master Miyazaki Hayao -- someone who could have lifted it to the next level.

The story is too old to be commented.

Yep - one of the better JRPGs of this generation.

Shame it didn't really take off enough for a sequel to be green-lit. :(

Other excellent JRPGs this gen that are now dirt cheap and well worth playing:

- Lost Odyssey (my personal fave this gen)
- Tales of Vesperia
- Folklore
- Infinite Undiscovery (get past the horrible first 2-3 hours and it transforms into a great game)
- Blue Dragon
- Xenoblade Chronicles
- Star Ocean: The Last Hope

I knew there must have been one other person who loved infinite undiscovery. That game really was a diamond in the rough. The battle system was great fun and its well worth the time to see the ending and last boss. The beginning is total shi* though.

I would add Magna Carta 2. Awesome graphics/art style and the battle system is one of the best ive ever played. The bosses are alot of fun, check it out.

Valkyria Chronicles is conspicuously missing from that list, but I otherwise agree.

kreate1632d ago

I fell asleep playing blue dragon -_-;;

n4gisatroll1632d ago

I should of bought it from an old coworker, he loved it.

Baba19061632d ago

i really liked this. =D

Baddo_Ekkusuchi1632d ago

Awesome that this incudes jap voice overs. Even if there is no trophies, people should def get this game. Great rpg hands down

dc11632d ago

You're very right.
And that's how I enjoyed the game: Japanese voice overs with English subtitles.

Shame that it wasn't carried over in the battles.

I think if they brought it over to the PS Vita, It'd probably get quite a bit of attention.

It shouldn't just be a straight-ass port though.. the developers should try to take advantage of the Vita's unique hardware features in-game whenever possible as well.

The Vita's gorgeous & vibrant OLED screen will no doubt help to bring out the game's beautiful & colorful artwork also.

REALgamer1632d ago

Agreed!

JRPGs seem to work a bit better on handhelds in my opinion since they tend to use small-screen friendly design choices such as overhead / fixed cameras, turn-based combat, text boxes and very clean, colourful art styles.

I would love for Xenoblade Chronicles to get a port!

ES was a cool JRPG with a very interesting battle system. Characters and story were disappointing but definitely worth a try if you're looking for a good JRPG to play while waiting for Tales of Graces f to be released.
