Hey, I've been a long time 'Tales of' series fan, the type that considers herself a big enough of a fan to actually follow sites specifically dedicated towards producing news about the series.. and have been so happy that they are giving the U.S. market another chance and just this month, in the US, released the game 'Tales of Graces F' for the PS3. It's coming to my European friends soon.
I got it on release day, after pre-ordering it to get the goodies and have been really enjoying it and I was wondering if there was any other Tales of fans that were lurking around.. anyone else who has played perhaps a Tales game in the past and didn't realize that Tales of Graces F had managed to reach our shores or even people who might be willing to give this amazing game a shot.
I already find myself playing it a second time, and already have plans for my next couple of playthroughs. I'm really excited. <3
Info about it:
It's a JRPG, which have been really absent on the PS3's library of games and some people might think for good reason.. which I totally respect but I'm not one of those people. The story has plenty of the tropes you are familiar with in the genre, and while isn't pushing the envelope with them is far from not entertaining.. there are plenty of great moments and is just the kind of storybook story that you can smile after. It's got plenty of genuinely funny moments and the voice acting is wonderful.
However, when it comes to a game I know you play it for the gameplay and that's where Tales of Graces F truly shines. If you haven't played a 'Tales of' series game then you don't know they were one of the first ever unique action RPG's way back on the SNES and this venture might be their most action packed and depth yet. From evolving your characters the way you want them to a fighting system that keeps you on your toes and int the action, the gameplay makes the experience an all around enjoyable one.
