I love this game. If you are in desperate need for a good JRPG this game will satisfy your hunger. I like this game wayyyy better than vesperia. There has not been very many JRPGs this gen of consoles. And very few that are even good. Tales of graces F is one of the best for the PS3.



The best part of this game is the combat. One of the best jrpgs for the ps3? Well if it its not because its that great. The music is mediocre to average. The pacing is poor, and its extremely cliche. Don't get me wrong I love jrpgs but outside of its great combat the rest of the game is average at best.

Ive been waiting for a price drop on this for so long, and of course its at the one place I won't buy it at. Ive gotten burned one too many times on "new" games from GameStop.

Bought this and Dragon's Dogma, different games of course, but lost all interest in this few hours into it and been playing DD for 150+ hours.

I wonder how much longer I will go too. Only so many times you can kill the UR Dragon. They patched in an easy mode, too difficult to patch an a hard mode?

Stopped by both Best Buy and GS on my way home from work. BB didn't have it and both "new" copies at GS (gutted of course) had scratched disks and beat up cases (definitely not new). Anyhow, still wondering if I should wait and/or try to get the Eruo SE edition instead.



Yes please, everyone help! Would rather get it from Amazon (no tax + free shipping).

Funny, as I saw the 39.99 price point, I saw a used copy for 31 besides me. :lol: Didn't feel like spending money though

Went and picked it up today from a local Gamestop. I heard you can skip the cutscenes, which is a big plus for me and ultimately the deciding factor. The battle system in Vesperia was great, but not being able to skip cutscenes was annoying.

I cannot recommend this game enough. As a person who hadn't played a quality RPG since the PS2 was at it's prime (aside from Persona 3 and 4), this was quite a breath of fresh air. I absolutely love it and would gladly pay $60 for it again.

For those who find it used around your way and is sitting on alot of PUR points, you can get it for about $20 like I did with the $15 "steal" of the week coupon that's 10,000 points.

I actually liked Graces a little better than Vesperia. Story was mostly meh, but the battle system was better. Characters were pretty archetype-y in both. Pascal cracked me up for some reason. But GAAAAH the cutscenes and the skits, sometimes they just go on and on. Tales games, Y U NO just let me play you??

It's listed below "Price Drops" in the ad, so I'd say this is the latter.


Probably a universal price drop coming. I have a feeling $39.99 will be the new price for this game.

I picked up a used copy today. The store I was at had the game in both new and used, but I figured what the hell. Gamestop's 'new' is still used, why give them $5 more?

Personally I liked Vesperia more than Graces. I tried playing Symphonia but couldn't get myself to like it. I will probably play Abyss as soon as I finish Graces. Is Legendia any good because I tried it for about a hour but didn't like it?

The load times for Abyss on the PS2 are pretty bad. It reeeaaallly sucks.

Thanks OP. Was going to try and get this through goHastings but there haven't been to many fantastic promos to capitalize on. Last one had been the 40% promo... but I missed out.

Preferred Symphonia over Abyss. I generally NEVER play games more than once after completion, that being said I think I played Symphonia 2-3 times until completion. Played Vesperia only a few hours but couldn't justify setting aside the countless hours it would take to beat it. Never tried Legendia... but that's because apparently it sucked compared to the others.

PS.
Abyssion kicked my ass... as did Nebilim:lol:

damn can't believe a Tales game is getting a price drop, though I guess Tales is the 4th JRPG series behind FF, DQ, and SO.

Pretty sure Tales is ahead of SO, but at this point SMT is ahead of both.
