4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Fans of the Original, Otherwise... November 11, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   

+Good looking game
+Fun battle system
+Returning characters who do more than simply make an appearance
+For the most part, good voice acting


-Battling can be a button mashing affair
-A slow story to start
-Too linear
-If you haven't played the first game the plot becomes harder to understand throughout and it is just harder to appreciate

When Tales of Symphonia debuted on the Gamecube, it became an unprecedented cult classic. Since then there have been several Tales games to come about, but none have hit the spark Tales of Symphonia did on the Gamecube. Fans of Tales of Symphonia will probably come to Dawn of the New World with open arms. Newcomers, however, might do best to play the original first.

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World takes place two years after the original. The story itself can seem a bit complicated at times. Mostly because there are a lot of things thrown in from the first game. In terms of being a sequel it's not bad in the sense that it brings in familiar faces who do more than just present a cameo, and that it also has you revisiting areas, but it also refers to the first game many times down the road. Needless to say, if you haven't played the first Tales of Symphonia, some of the story just might not click right away and you might even find some of it to be a mess. The original game had a lot to swallow and much of it you'll be expected to remember. It also doesn't help that the story isn't all that well paced. It takes a while for it to jump into things. Tales has never been great about jumping into the story, but for some reason it's a bigger problem with Dawn of the New World.

On the other hand, the characters in and of themselves are interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have January 25, 2009
By Lexie
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is perfect if you are a fan of the first game. The first was better of course, but I still enjoyed this one immensely. I have spent a lot of time playing it with my brother and we both love it. I haven't finished the game yet, but my brother has on his file. So, here I'll go into details about the plot and game play. Then I'll go into some differences from the original.

This game takes place after the original ended. The world is a new place, Tethe'allans and Sylvrantis are now living together in one world. But it's not quite peaceful. Half-elves are hated and feared still and the Tethe'allans look down on the less advanced Sylvrantis.
It follows the story of a Sylvranti boy named Emil. He and Marta join up and go on an adventure to find and hatch the centurion's cores in order to bring balance to the world. Centurions are like the protectors/ stabilizers of the world's mana. You'll learn more about them in the game.
And that's the basic plot, without giving anything away, at least, nothing you don't find out in the first couple minutes of the game anyway.

In some respects it is very similar to the original. In stead of calling moves "techs" though, they are now referred to as "artes." There are the 4 A-moves, and the 4 B-moves. However there are now 8 C-moves. 4 with the control pad on the wii-remote, and 4 that can be used by shaking either the remote or the numchuck.
Sadly, first player can only play as Emil or Marta, but it is possible to switch players during a battle. And only Emil or Marta can be the one shown walking around.
Also, 2nd player can no longer control anything except for during fights.
The characters from the old game come back and some join your team. Usually no more than 2 or 3 at a time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fan Service? November 13, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Although for the most part i agree that this is for those who enjoyed the original, i would disagree that it did its part for fan service. All of the original cast make a long, playable appearance, but Namco decided not to get back most of the original voice cast. Heather Hogan, Collette, remains, but other than that, there's almost no one. These voice actors became more to us than voices; They became the characters themselves. Without these, the characters take some getting used to. Other than that, the game is pretty fun. The point and click map makes exploring impossible, which is a downer, but the nostalgic feeling of many of the cities is amazing. The game could have been much more, and with all the delays on the release date, it should have been. It turns out to be a good but not exceptional rpg for the wii, but the small elements missing culminate into a large empty hole that Namco had a hard time filling, even with all the great character development of their new characters. But, what can you expect? This is a spinoff, not a sequal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful November 24, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just recently received this game a couple of days ago. I really love the Tales of series the most. Using the Wii remote for it isn't that hard, but my hands get a little tired from holding it for so long.
Anyway, I should talk about the gameplay. You probably already know about the basic plot of the game but nothing of the gameplay or what a person who has played it thinks. I love the plot, even if it is sad to see Emil hating Llyod so much and he will say that constantly to others when he tries to go find him, at least until he meets Raine and realizes why the people of Iselia defend him so ardently. Despite this, I find the conversations funny and entertaining.
What I find disappointing is that it no longer lets you have the characters cook for each other like in previous Tales of games. You also have a system where you can travel quickly to other towns which is a plus to be sure, but sadly you have little to no opportunities to level up and bosses could crush you alive. You have to go to a heavily populated monster area to level up on your own.
I loved the first Tales of Symphonia. And this game has a really interesting plot!
Since I've finished it, I feel that it ended much too quickly and it didn't have that many subplots to suit me. Tales of games are filled with those diverting subplots and I felt disappointed that they took out most of them. And you can't change much about the previous Tales of Symponia characters, only the current ones. Overall, it does have a good plotline and characters.
