Tales of Graces f

 

Tales of Graces was originally released on the Nintendo Wii in 2009, in the land of the rising sun. The RPG remained a Japanese exclusive for a couple years until Namco Bandai hinted of a localization release early last year on their official Facebook...

Visually, the game is decent but the character models and environments do betray the fact the game was made originally for the Wii. They are not bad by any means, but it fails to make use of any spectacular visuals the PlayStation 3 is truly capable of...

Tales of Graces f Review

 

Unbalanced difficulty and other issues cast a shadow on Tales of Graces f, but deep combat and endearing characters still shine through.

Deepest combat of the series ; Story breaks free of cliche ; Titles offer high customization

Unbalanced difficulty ; Weak prologue lasts too long

Tales of Graces F

 

Gregarious costumes, searing angst, and horrible pop music; no I am not describing the next tween fantasy/sci-fi movie franchise, but instead the storied traditions of JRPGs. The "Tales of” series is a bit after my JRPG phase petered out, but Tales of...

If you're a fan of that genre it does everything you want it to ; Good balance of action and stat heavy RPG elements ; Allows you to determine your level of involvement in customization without limiting character growth

Difficulty curve is unforgiving near the end of the game ; Genre and story are very genre specific and builds in a limited audience

I don’t think that Tales of Graces F is going to win anyone over to the JRPG side. If you’re already a fan of Anime or Japanese games, then this will likely scratch the itch. Some of the storyline may be too saccharine as there are a lot of long...

Tales of Graces f

 

The JRPG–a genre that was once plentiful in generations past–has become something of an endangered species, rarely seen outside of its native land, and the ones that are released beyond the various Final Fantasy games typically flounder. Tales of...

Tales of Graces f is not a bad game by any stretch of the imagination, but without an intriguing plot, cast of characters, or a world truly worth saving, its penchant for seeing how many tired cliches it can cram onto one disc makes it rather obvious...

Tales of Graces f (PS3) Review

 

Tales of Graces f is the latest entry in the Tales series, but what does it offer to stand out from the traditional RPG crowd? Check out the review to find out.

If you're a traditional RPG fan, there's a lot to like here. The game is clearly aimed at fans of the genre, and didn't sacrifice any of the things that RPG gamers love in an attempt to score some crossover appeal ; Once you pick up the combat system,...

Graphics could definitely be improved ; Information overload in the beginning of the game ; A bit cliche

Tales of Graces f Review

 

The last time US gamers saw a Tales title? 2004. It was Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World for the GameCube. We had heard rumors that the well-received Tales of Vesperia for the PS3 would eventually find its way over here, but that never...

The Ugly: “Too colorful and charming…tough to find any ‘ugly’ here.”

Tales Of Graces f Playtest: A Tale Of Two Players

 

Tales has a vocal fanbase, but as a RPG series it isn't as well known as other brands. Since Tales of Graces f is a two player game, I decided to play the English version with someone who has never played a Tales game before.

Important Importables Review: Tales of Graces F for PS3

 

On December 10, 2009, Namco Bandai released Tales of Graces for the Wii, the first original Tales game to debut on the system. While it had a lot of promise, including a simplified battle scheme that made it easier for beginners to adjust, it was...

Interesting story, looks pretty, good battle system that’s easy to get into, lots of titles to collect, DLC costumes available, epilogue added to the PS3 release, quite a few side-quests, lots of save points, barely noticeable loading times, unified...

Doesn’t seem as challenging as other Tales games and DLC costumes are expensive. Tales of Graces Wii owners’ version looks pretty bad in comparison. Item creation only happens at shops. TP points are gone, which could be seen as good but it does make...

Tales of Graces f Review

 

We take a spin through Tales of Graces, dash-stepping and merrily skewering enemies all the way.

As is typical for the series, Tales of Graces f features an addictive combat system, tons of complex side systems to explore, and a quest of epic length for the player to undertake. While it doesn't have the strongest cast or story in the series,...

The latest "Tales" JRPG hits Kiwi PS3s at last; is it worth your time and attention, or is it already time..

If you're looking for a classic JRPG experience and many hours of fantasy fun, Tales of Graces f ticks all the boxes.
