There aren't a lot of JRPGs on the XBOX360 and what ones there are aren't as special as promised. Eternal Sonata is a different story. It's a grand game that hits all the right notes. It has a few minor issues, but nothing that keeps it from being fantastic.

Fredric Chopin is terribly sick and dying. As he lies unconscious in bed he has a dream where he is in a world unlike any other. In this world, those who are sick with incurable diseases can use magic, but is it really a dream? Or is it another reality? This world has its own problems, however, the people are being taxed and a man named Count Waltz is slowly enslaving everyone. It doesn't sound like much, but the story is surprisingly deep and is full of several themes. There are also many music references throughout the game. From the characters who have names like Allegretto, Polka and Beat. To some of the places you'll be going like the Chrous Plains.

The story is told through cutscenes voiced by the characters. The voice acting isn't the best in the world. They've got the right voices for the job, but a lot of the actual voice acting is dry. Luckily, if the English voice overs are annoying you, you have the option to switch the voices to Japanese. The story jumps between Chopin's life and the dream world which the gameplay centers in. Also, throughout the game, you'll get to learn a little about the real Chopin. The game gives you some historical accounts and during these moments will play his beautiful music. This is all great, but sometimes these historical segments come up at inappropriate times. The good news about these historical segments is that they do relate to the overall story. Also, as good as the story is, it's rather slow to start.

I have just a few things to add to Sean's excellent review.

One thing a lot of people miss is that you can play this game coop with up to 2 other friends. This is unusual for an RPG. The fighting is great fun - my wife and I have pretty much played this game from start to where we are now (about 12 hours in). We absolutely love this game.

We have never had any issues with items, in fact we rarely use them. Maybe this will change later on when things get harder. Personally, I like the item limitation as the game would be too easy if they were limitless.

We like the linearity of the game. It's a matter of taste I guess. Since this game is coop, the linearity works in your favor when you are playing with friends (who wants to watch you figure out mazes and backtrack all over the place trying to figure out where to go next?). The game moves at a very brisk pace.

We thought the voice acting was excellent with a few minor exceptions. The main characters were played perfectly.

And I would like to doubly highlight that this game has one of the best soundtracks to date. It is absolutely magnificent. Probably the best soundtrack that I've heard this entire generation.

If you like Japanese-style role-playing games, you cannot go wrong with this game. You will love it.

Eternal Sonata is amazing!

This game was just splendid! From start to finish there is never a dull moment. A deep fleshed out story line with characters based on real life people combined with totally original characters all blended up into a refreshing mix of RPG amassment. The story is about the Famous composer redrick Chopin and his band of dream world heros as they strive to take down an evil king. It's incredibly well done and no RPG goer should miss out on such a masterpiece.

Visuals: 9
High def anime beauty. Tons of detail can be seen on every single character model and lush environment throughout the game. Crisp anime style characters, glowing forest, and so much more can be seen here. It's truly a feast for the eyes.

Gameplay: 10
A totally new concept for the action adventure RPG style. Namco took eveything you love about action RPGS and slapped it into a turn based strategy package. It works out very well. There are tons of different moves to learn that change depending on if you are in light or dark areas. It's a lot of fun!

Music: 10
With a game based on a composer.. You have to ask. How is the soundtrack? Well, it won't disappoint. There is a wide variety of music to be heard ranging from Chopins work to new original music to fit the anime style theme

Overall: 9.5
Eternal Sonata will not disappoint. There is so much to love and so much to do here that you will never get tired of playing. I recommend every fantasy/rpg gamer pick this up ASAP!

Although its music is amazing and its environments are stunning, what is really great about Eternal Sonata is the gameplay. The battle system us a hybrid of turn based battles and hack and slash action. This gives you the opportunity to run around and attack in battle much like the Tales games, but since only one character moves at a time, you avoid the chaotic atmosphere of Tales games. As the game progesses, the rules on the battlefield change, such as the amount of time for attacks and chaining combo attacks. This keeps battles fresh til the very end. As the rules of battle changes through the game, you will be forced to think strategically about characters' strengths and weaknesses, and about what set of characters can best complement the others. AGain, Eternal Sonata manages to avoid getting stale as you shuffle your party around throughout the game. Exploration in Eternal Sonata appears shallow, but the linear movement of the game makes the experience relaxing and enjoyable. Because of its linear design, Eternal Sonata makes a great RPG for those who are put off by overwhelmingly complicated games. It's relatively short completion time (~35 hours) also may be appealing for those who want a great RPG experience, but don't want to spend 100 hours in front of their 360.

Overall, Eternal Sonata is unavoidably fun.
