The Good:

+A very good story filled with engrossing characters
+Very well crafted dialog makes the story entertaining
+Incredibly fun battle system with a lot of depth
+A game that looks rather good on the 3DS
+The voice acting is actually very good
+A lengthy quest filled with lots of side quests and secrets

The Bad:

-The story can get bogged down in exposition
-The 3D conversion isn't very good
-There is nothing here that will convince those who invested in the Playstation 2 version to invest in this one; there are no 3DS exclusive extras here

In 2006 Tales of the Abyss was released on the Playstation 2. It's release was, unfortunately, overshadowed by Square-Enix's Final Fantasy XII. It's a shame because several gamers missed out on a considerable gem. And strangely enough, six years later the game is still just as good as it was then. It's aged well, and now those who missed out before may have a second chance to experience it.

Tales of the Abyss takes place in the fantasy world of Auldrant. A world ruled by "The Score." An enormous stone that more or less tells the fate. A fate that can't be changed. And the one who is likely to change this is Luke Von Fabre. He's a rich young man living in a manor. He was kidnapped seven years prior and when he was rescued couldn't remember anything. As a result he has been kept in the manor and sheltered during this time. When training with his mentor Van, a mysterious woman named Tear breaks into the manor and in an failed attempt to assassinate Van, is suddenly transported away with Luke. For the first time Luke is in the outside world. But why was Tear trying to assassinate Van? And what does Luke have to do with the score? It all comes together.

Tales of the Abyss 3DS is a more or less direct port of the PS2 version of TotA. I never had a chance to play the original, so this is my take on the game coming purely from the 3DS experience.

Story 9.5/10
First of all, the game has a fantastic, engrossing story. While many will say it is clichéd with anime tropes, I would only agree in part. However, this game has its own spin on many of those tropes and does so in such a way that captivated me unlike anything I've played since Xenosaga. The characters have real problems and address them. This game is filled with imperfect, jagged characters, and they all must band together across those imperfections to rise above what they expect from themselves. I won't go into any details, because anything would spoil the plot other than the game's brief blurb on the back of the cover. Make sure to not to read about the story because it must be experienced first hand, any spoilers will do just that--spoil the magic of this game.

Gameplay 10/10
The gameplay itself is fantastic. The Tales battle system took a big step with the addition of Free run, which allows the player to stray from the action line with the enemy, enabling you to run freely around the battlefield. The combat itself is quite engaging. It is not turn based. It is almost more like Smash Bros. in that you have two buttons to determine different attacks, which will vary depending on the direction the circle pad is pushed. Battles are engaging and only get more fun as the game continues. The difficulty is fairly low if you can wrap your head around the tactics of the combat system, but there are harder modes available (two after a new game).

Disclaimer: I never played the original PS2 version of this game. I've only played the 3DS verison.

I... I just love this game. After plugging 40 hours into it in the past month, I've decided that it is my favorite 3DS game to date. The story, if you haven't played it before, is wonderful. It's the first storyline in a long time that's made me emotionally invested in the characters. I feel like I know them like old friends, and the enemies and foes truly feel like my own enemies and foes. As far as story length goes, yes it's LONG. It's a very long game. An chances are, you won't get most of the secret story points on your first playthrough. I'm still not done yet, but who knows, maybe I'll play it again. :D

Now, onto the nitty-gritty: graphics and controls. The game feels very good to play, and the battles (all that's really important control-wise) are VERY fun. The shortcut feature is now implemented to the touch screen for easy access. I can say with absolute confidence that the controls feel natural and are very easy to grasp, leaving the rest of the game to perfect your skills. Lotsa fun, I can't tell ya enough.

Graphics are wonderful, and easy on the eyes. I don't use the 3D on the game much though. It's just not really needed. I mean, it's cool, but not needed, ya know? Same kind of sentiment that I had with Ocarina of Time 3D- great game, with 3D if you want to use it. Considering this was a PS2 game before, the visuals are WONDERFUL. I really wish they could do this kind of port with other Tales of the World games. Battle camera feels very smooth, too.

The audio in this game is where I was really taken back. Most Japanese RPGs that are translated to English have TERRIBLE voice acting, but this game...
