Product Description

In Tales Of The Abyss, you'll enter the life of Luke fon Fabre, sole heir to a family of aristocrats. He was kidnapped seven years ago, and the shock left him with no memories of his life before. For his own protection since his return, he has been confined to a quiet, boring life within the family's residence, learning little of the world beyond the palace walls. Luke is suddenly thrust into the outside world, caught in the workings of the Order of Lorelei, keepers of the prophecy known as the Score. No longer in the shelter of the palace, Luke must get along in the confusing and often hostile world. He knows nothing about those who might be his friends, or those who already are his enemies.

While the Tales series isn't nearly as big as other series (namely Final Fantasy), it's still a particularly fun and satisfying game to play. For one, the Tales series has always been able to bring about fantastic gameplay and expansive worlds. While the stories sometimes seem generic they're brilliantly told with fantastic characters. Tales of the Abyss is the latest in the series and needless to say, if you liked Tales of Legendia or even the far superior (and arguably best) Tales of Symphonia, you'll more than likely enjoy this game.

Tales of the Abyss follows Luke Von Fabre. A spoiled rich kid who is busy trying to regain his memories. He was kidnapped seven years ago and can't remember a thing from before then. He's cooped up in a manor, though, and is restricted from leaving. During a training session with his master Van, someone breaks into the manor and attempts to kill him. When Luke steps up to defend his master, the two are suddenly teleported to a different location. It would be pretty basic... if you didn't meet such entertaining characters along the way. Just the same, the dialog is really clever, witty and full of humor. Simply put, you'll have a ball with these characters as they go off and save the world. It overall makes what would've been a generic story very interesting. Not only that, but there are several plot twists. Many of which you won't see coming.

Needless to say it's pretty standard stuff that you'd find yourself getting into some battles. It is, after all, an RPG. Tales of the Abyss has the best battle system in the entire series. It's far more expansive and free.

Battles are pretty much free roam. It's much faster and more intense than turn based combat. At first it's pretty simple stuff.

First, let me say that I bought this game without being very familiar with the TALES series. While I had read good things about the series, it was really by chance that I stumbled across it on GameSpot, read the review there, took a look at the screenshots, and decided that I wanted to give this game a spin.

And boy, I'm glad I did! The first thing I noticed about TALES OF THE ABYSS was that its graphics, while not comprised of fancy 3D renders or polygonal-cell shaded-whatchamacallits, are really attractive. From the opening cutscene through countless hours of the game so far, I have been impressed by the way the game, as a whole, looks. Each area you visit is carefully drawn and portayed, making each location bear its own ambience and flair. While none of it is "cutting edge" per se, it works very well with the characters and overall feel of this game.

Having said that, to appreciate how well the graphics work with the rest of the game, you have to get to know the characters. Indeed, it's Luke, Tear, Jade, and the rest of the gang that make TALES OF THE ABYSS the smashing success that it is. From the first scenes with in Baticul, it becomes clear that Luke's attitude is as harsh as it is humorous. The protagonist's interactions with other characters, especially the mysterious Tear and the witty Jade, are simply fantastic. I've chuckled many times after hearing and reading some of the very clever dialogue between characters.

The story itself may occasionally leave something to be desired, but can (overall) be overlooked because of the game's high points. Save a few semi-confusing moments, nothing is "bad" about the story -- it's just not particularly inventive or distinctive.

I'm not normally a person who plays videogames, and hardly one who likes RPGs. I usually start them and leave them halfway because I lose interest. I picked this game up on a whim, since I had heard a lot of good things about it. I wasn't expecting much, but Tales of the Abyss consistently kept me interested and on the edge of my seat. The battle system is extremely fun, the story is very engaging and heartfelt, and the cast is full of colorful and complex characters. Even for someone who gets tired of games quickly, I never got tired of this one. I recommend it highly, even if you aren't someone who likes games that much like myself.

Verified Purchase
Folks, it's not exactly classified information that the Tales of series, contradictory to its popularity in Japan, is not exactly famous over here in North America or, to an even further extent, everywhere else you can buy it. But honestly, that's not a bad thing when it comes to these games; each Tales of game that I've played so far has always been exceedingly entertaining, capable of keeping you engaged for countless hours with the fast-paced, real-time action, the cast and crew of likeable characters, the seemingly nonstop comedy, and the overall outstanding stories. I wanted to take this review to tell you all that Tales of the Abyss is, by no means, an exception to these principles. From the moment you boot up this game to the very end of it, I can almost guarantee--no, I DO guarantee--that you will be hooked, or that you will at least enjoy playing this game. It's at least worth playing through at least once, but if you're anything like me, in your mind, it will go from, "okay, sure, I'll play through the game once and just quit" to, "My god...I want more! I don't care if I already know everything that happens; I still wanna play!" Fantastic scenery, engaging characters and plot elements, real-time, action-packed combat system, interesting and intriguing systems that are otherwise new to the RPG franchise (such as the Town Shop system or the FS Chamber system), and, as standard for most of the Tales games, a breathtaking musical score. You'll want to play this game again and again! I know I did!
