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. The PS2 couldn't seem to stop receiving them. Well, in 2004 the answer came in the form of Tales of Symphonia. A game that came from what was then a very obscure series (if people were even aware it was a series to begin with). As such, the game became a run away cult success on the Gamecube. It introduced many fans to the series. With so many HD reissues coming out the Tales of Symphonia one is actually quite surprising. The game was a big success in the day, but Namco hasn't always been willing to reissue the Tales game in North America. Tales of Symphonia was a grand RPG back in 2004 and it holds up well today. There are some aspects of it that are either dated, or that it would've been nice for the developers to touch, but nevertheless I'm still glad to have a chance to replay a gem such as Tales of Symphonia.

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.

Many fans today are likely familiar with the first Tales of Symphonia, released for the Gamecube in 2004. The sequel brought fans a heavy dose of nostalgia on the Wii. This edition brings out the best of both worlds, with new sidequests to flesh out fan-favourites like Genis, Presea and Zelos. If that wasn't enough, the Japanese voices are available for the first time ever, so otakus who refuse to watch anime in English will finally have their wishes granted.

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.

Each one numbered from 1-18000. This is essential for big Tales of Symphonia fans. Not only do you get all 4 figures shown. But the quality, paint and sculpt are amazing. Usually we get a taste of the sound track... But this set gives you 4 discs of themes from both games!!! Also the hard cover novel is something to look forward to. You also get the character art book showing concepts of the protagonists in different art styles, with the voucher for the exclusive dynamic theme shown on the back. My favorite perc is the game. Upon taking it out of its generic wrap you get a 'colored' Manuel, made exclusive for fans request, and a reversible cover, featuring Tales of Symphonua cover art on the front, and then Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of a New World cover art on the back. Definitely worth $150, 99.99 was a steal.

I first played Tales of Grace F, it was an awesome game, awesome enough to convince me to get all other Tales Of games.

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.

Tales of Symphonia is probably in my top 10 games of all time. Being a big JRPG fan, this game scratches an itch that doesn't get scratched nearly as well as it used to. But this is a terrible port compared to the original Gamecube version.

This game is a port of the PS2 version that was only released in Japan. As such, it contains a few additional things here and there to enhance the experience. While I appreciate the extra anime cutscenes, additional costumes, Japanese voice option, additional dialogue and skits and the couple of new moves added, nothing here is really earth shattering. However, this and the widescreen format are the only two things going for the game. So it gets an additional star for that.

But oh man, this port is bad. As far as I know, the PS2 port was bad to begin with. They apparently didn't try to fix anything with this game. The game runs at a VERY noticeably low frame rate and has quite a bit of lag on places like the over world map. ToS ran at 60 FPS in almost every place on the Gamecube, and it was buttery smooth. This game runs at MAYBE 30 FPS and looks very jerky and out of place. It's something I never got used to coming from the Gamecube version. Again on the visual side, the character models are missing a nice black outline effect they used to have that gave the game a very memorable visual look. Now they just kinda blend into the background and look very drab. The Gamecube also had a strange anti aliasing effect that blurred everything but the center of the screen. Weird choice, but at 480p it works quite well. This version at 720p is a jaggy mess. It's just not appealing to look at, especially if you're a PC gamer used to a ton of AA.
