The collection includes two games. Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World which was released on the Wii just a few years ago. While Tales of Symphonia is a great game, Dawn of the New World always had something of a mixed reaction from fans. It never quite garnered the cult status its older brother did. True enough, it's also not quite as good.
Tales of Symphonia centers on Lloyd Irving and his friend Collette. In the land of Sylvarant, life is slowly dying. The chosen of rejuvenation is tasked with facing the trials of Martel in order to restore the mana of the world, thus saving it. This is how the game starts. And at first it feels as though the story is a cliche straight out of RPGs 101. But Tales of Symphonia has two things that make the story so worthwhile.Read more ›
The story (for the original game) appears simple and cookie-cutter fantasy fare - save the world and defeat the villain. Not long into the story, though, the player discovers much more hiding behind the scenes than they expected. Profoundly mature themes of racism, slavery, oppression and loyalty arise, and end up making one of the top-tier Tales games one of the top-tier RPGs ever created.
The combat is as intuitive, immersive and entertaining as ever, with HD graphics and faster load times for the Playstation 3. Add a whole bunch of new weapons into the mix and Symphonia's gut-wrenching story with tension and twists every twenty minutes, and you've got a recipe for an instant classic.
If you missed out on playing Tales of Symphonia the first time, don't make the same mistake twice. There is a copious amount of new material more than sufficient to make it enjoyable for fans to revisit this game for the second or third time.
This Limited Edition release also includes a short novel with an original story set in the land of Tethe'alla and Sylvarant.
The battle system does show it's age here, however. It is very linear. Unison attacks make up for the lack of other features in the battle system, though.
In addition, this includes the sequel Dawn of the New World. Even though the sequel is not as great, it is a worthy addition to the series. Overall, this is an extremely good deal.
So I bought Tales of Symphonia Chronicles and Tales of Xillia together.
Though Tales of Symphonia Chronicles games (yes, it is 2 games) are not up to date in regards of graphics as Tales of Grace F or Tales of Xillia, it is an awesome game in its own merit.
The story line is so good that I could not put the controller down for hours.
There is an anime for this game, I would not suggest watching the anime until you play the game, unless you don't mind or like spoilers.

In 2004, the JRPG was still a very popular genre. Popular enough that those who owned a Gamecube were wondering when they'd be able to enjoy a good RPG. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Provenance

Love this series. Very FF-ish, though not quite. It's a little more hands-on like the later FF in attacking things on a map. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Steven Sorenson
