Tech-Gaming | Tales of the Abyss Review

For Nintendo 3DS owners pining for a ‘proper’ JRPG, Tales of the Abyss is your savior- delivering a gratifying adventure elevated by a remarkably engaging combat system. (3DS, Tales of the Abyss) B/A+

Great PS2 game and a pretty good 3DS port. Sounds cool.

I always heard that Tales games are some of the best JRPGs, good stories and fun combat.

The stories are a bit generic and have a lot of cliches, but I find a charm in that.

The series is a mixed bag, you got the good ones like Symphonia and Vesperia, generic ones like Worlds and Symphonia 2, and bad ones like Legendia and Abyss.

So did the cut anything out from the PS2 version?

so rexx isnt a proper japanese rpg? or rocket slime isnt a good japanese rpg?

what are you expecting in less than a full year? Systems dont start out rpg machines. They grow into it.

More specific- localized JRPGs, UnchainBlades ReXX and Slime Mori Mori Dragon Quest 3 aren't available as US domestic releases.

But otherwise, I agree RPGs need an installed userbase to be profitable.

I picked this up after missing it on ps2 and the game rocks! Its def not as good as vesperia (not much is) but its still damn good. Best jrpg on the 3ds imo. Il gladly support a tales game so hopefully we get more of them localized.

My first Tales game and I'm enjoying the hell out of it, looking forward to Graces F and hopefully Perfect Vesperia.
