However, the audience for this kind of game has dwindled rapidly this generation, and with little to no marketing, games like this are dying at retail. The modern gamer would be put off by it's bright colors and exceedingly foreign sensibilities. The modern gamer would be uncomfortable spending the first 3-5 hours playing as an 11 year old kid. The modern gamer would be embarrassed for any of his friends to see the anime artwork and cutscenes.
But the modern gamer would miss the depth, the fun, the humor, or the charm that pervades every inch of Tales of Graces. It is a great tragedy of this console generation that a title like this can fall by the wayside, with only the most hardcore of the hardcore JRPG fans purchasing it new and showing their support.
If, like me, you yearn for a return to the glory days where JRPGs ruled the roost and you always knew you were getting your money's worth when you bought one, you owe it to yourself to pick this game up. Not used. Pay the extra $10, eat at home one night this week, and buy this game new. Show Namco, and the rest of the Japanese developers, that it IS financially sound to release and market their games in North America. Wallet Votes mean everything in this business. You have the power to shape this industry. Start with supporting Tales of Graces. It is more than worth the price of admission.
+A very inventive battle system that has a focus on strategy
+A good story with great characters
+Lots of customization to do
+Lots of sidequests to do at some point
+A lengthy quest
-The voice acting could be better
-The story is very slow paced and has a tendency to get bogged down in too much exposition. It's a very enjoyable story but sometimes you really wish it would just move along rather than taking time to explain what we already know

The Tales series has had a shaky history in the states. Many of them haven't even seen release stateside. Case in point, Tales of Graces was first made available on the Wii in Japan in 2009. When Tales games do get a release outside of Japan there are small handful of fans who take note. The last major release in the United States was Tales of Vesperia on the XBOX360. Tales of Graces comes out amidst worry for some fans as it opts to try something new and different for the Tales series. The results are actually great. It may take a bit of time to learn, but Tales of Graces is certainly a welcome addition. It has a few things that keep it from being nearly as good as previous entries in the series however.
Our story centers on Asbel. A rebellious youth who doesn't desire to follow in his fathers footsteps. Instead of becoming ruler of the Lhant he'd rather be a knight and protect his friends. As a boy he has gotten into trouble and gotten into heated arguments with his father. When he and his brother Hubert go to Lhant Hill (against his father's wishes, of course) they stumble across a mysterious girl who doesn't seem to know anything.Read more ›
I originally thought I would write this review over a month ago. I'm only writing it now, because I have invested around 100 hours into the game and only the last 5-10 are devoted to a new game+. Whenever I thought I was done, I either had the extended ending or discovered a secret dungeon that kept pulling me back into playing the game. When I played Tales it always felt like there was something else to do.
The most impressing thing about Tales of Graces f for me was the battle system. You only control one character at a time. You use the X and Circle buttons for the type of attacks you want, the left analogue stick to select the attack, and Square for blocking and dashing. Even if you don't quite understand how the game plays from reading my description, it is important to know that you don't look at a long list of commands or a list of 20 different spells when fighting enemies, yet you still have complete control of your character. Fighting feels like simple, yet exciting, because the pace of each battle is quick (an encounter that's over 2 or 3 minutes is really long for Tales of Graces) and it feels like you are actually making your character attack. The game also has 6 different difficulties which you can change at any time. Some are available when the game begins, some you have to unlock.Read more ›
