Torillian from VGChartz writes: "Overall, Eternal Sonata is the kind of game that I can only really recommend to someone who is already a fan of the genre. If you know you love JRPGs then there is nothing so annoying or broken about Eternal Sonata that you won't be able to make it through, and there are some fun moments and a decent story line that is definitely worth the time of a fan. I like where they were headed with this game, a very unique idea to start with, but the execution is rather disappointing. The fixed camera had me cursing up a storm, the voice acting had me cringe at points, and the story just left me wondering what the heck happened. With that said however, the music was beautiful, the mini-games were interesting if not entirely skill based and the premise of the story was a very cool idea that I hope other game makers take notice of."
