Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World


It's no secret I'm a huge Tales fan. I've played almost all of the series and have even imported some that were not released outside of Japan. Out of all of them, Tales of Symphonia is my favourite. So it shouldn't shock anyone that I couldn't wait to...

If you can actually make it through the corny dialogue, uninteresting story, repetitive level design and horrible voice acting to the end of the game then you deserve a virtual cookie. This is a watered-down version of a Tales game and barely deserves...

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World


Annoyances and an uninspired monster breeding system make the sequel nowhere close to as good as the original.

Free-movement battle system is fun ; Four-player co-op during battles ; A bonus for GameCube Tales owners

Monster capturing system doesn't add much to the game ; Your party never feels like a party ; Emil Castagnier, the most pathetic hero ever to grace an RPG

Why must you nerds import your vocabulary into the discussion! at least KDR was nice enough to provide definitions!

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World


While the original Tales of Symphonia on Gamecube is a gem in the history of rpgs, this revamp of the story didn't quite live up to its name. Don't get me wrong the game was still good compared to the rest of the garbage on the Wii, but it just isn't...

The game was OK, nothing spectacular. It was a good story with lovable characters and a fun but fidgety battle system. While not the best game, it definitely should be considered one of the highlights on the Wii.

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World - Wii Reviews - The Armchair Empire


It's no easy task to make a sequel when the first installment was such a big hit. Many games and movies tend to fall short of the expectations placed on them, or worse, are just flops. This is especially difficult when a game is known for bringing a...

Skits still have the same charm as always; 4-player multiplayer battle sequence

Too many cutscenes; Linear gameplay; Pact system and Item synthesis feel tacked on

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World Wii Review


As a game, Tales of Symphonia was pretty much like any other Tales game, but clearly the story, the world and the characters are some of the most beloved by its fans, resulting in Namco Bandai revisiting those aspects with the unashamed fan service...

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of The New World’s new additions are rarely successful, but the usual winning Tales formula is still here. This sequel also has the advantage of granting pleasant feelings of nostalgia for fans of the original Symphonia, of...

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World


The ever popular Japanese role-playing game (JRPG) genre is full of long running series, each obsessively adored by their own devoted fan bases who eagerly hail each new instalment as a life changing epic of majestic proportions. This kind of...

The thing is, despite all my moaning, there's not anything fundamentally wrong with Dawn of the New World. It offers a pleasingly long adventure (although a lot of that time will be spent watching the painful cut-scenes) for those willing to give it...

Tales Of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World


Namco Bandai are an odd bunch when it comes to their much loved Tales series. One moment they're localising everything that comes out of it, and the next minute they'll deprive us of three games in a row. It's a wonder that Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of...

Those expecting an experience like other 3D Tales games, such as Symphonia, are going to be disappointed. Dawn of the New World simply takes what Tales of Symphonia had and waters it down for the most part, meaning it shouldn't be recommended over the...

Tales of Symphonia - Dawn of the New World (Wii) review


The GameCube never really had that much of a selection when it came to RPGs. There were a few, but nowhere near the amount the Playstation 2 was getting. When Namco announced that their next major entry in the Tales series was coming to GameCube,...

People who haven?t played the GameCube hit will probably feel a little lukewarm towards Dawn of the New World, it's purely made for fans and if you aren?t a fan, you probably won?t get the most out of it. There is a warning for fans though, when you...

Feel like playing Jenga? Skip the Wii version and play the real thing


On our weekly Saturday trip to our library, I discovered that the library has Wii games to take out for the week. I showed some choices to my daughter. Since she had just been taught how to play the original game of Jenga the prior week, she chose ...

I honestly couldn't find any

Remote difficult to control, just not fun or entertaining
