A true classic
A wonderful turning point for the Tales Series. The first of the games in this epic series to be rendered in full 3D without losing it's classic Linear Motion Battle System. This is truly an epic masterpiece that every RPG fan should play.

Tales of Symphonia
If you only play RPGs on the Game Cube, then you have probably played this game and thought it was THE BEST GAME EVER. But is it really that great of a game? Lets find out!

Gameplay: ToS plays like most RPGs; you walk around in towns and go to different towns by turning Godzilla size and walking through a world map. When you encounter an enemy, you go into a battle. Unlike most RPGs that don’t have “Tales of” or “Star Ocean” in their name, battles in ToS happen in real time so its almost as if you are playing a fighting game. Unlike previous Tales games, ToS’s battles take place in a 3D field, so you are allowed more movement through the battlefield... sort of. Like previous Tales games, you are only given movement left and right, so you can only move through the field in 3D if the enemy you are locked-on to moves. Although “free-run” was not invented yet, characters set on AUTO can run anywhere they want.

Graphics: ToS has pretty good cel-shaded graphics that make it look very anime. Theres not much to say about the graphics since they’re not very UBER in any way.

Sound: The music is pretty good even though it sounds like cheap midi.

Final Rating: 8.5 out of 10. This isn’t exactly the BEST GAME EVER but it’s still a fun game. ToS’s easy access to 4-player mode made it one of the best multiplayer RPGs of its time.

ToS
Tales of Symphonia was the game that introduced me to the “Tales of” series. I first played it with my friends. The first time I played this game I played as Kratos, who was able to use sword based skills as well as magic skills. The battle system is pretty much the same as how it is in Tales of Eternia, except everything takes place on a 3D plane rather than a linear one. The 3D field, and also the ability to jump backwards, made it easier to evade many magic skills. Despite the battles taking place on a 3D field, you are only allowed to move in a line, while the computer-controlled characters can move freely in any direction. This made it annoying because the only way to get around things was to move against the edge of the field. However, this did not really hurt the battle system. The battle system was still fun, but it was not as challenging as Tales of Eternia’s battle system. The music isn’t too bad, but it could have been better if it were orchestrated. The graphics were very good for a cel-shaded GameCube game. Also, I really liked the character designs for the main characters. They story was very clichéd in the beginning, but it got more interesting as the game progressed. At first, Lloyd and his friends go on a journey to “regenerate the world” but that all changes when they found out the truth behind the existence of the co-existing worlds Sylvarant and Tethe’alla.

King of ALL gamecube RPGs
This blew my mind when I first played this, I was astounded by the intriging story, the number one battle system (yes, better than Abyss),the cool characters and the best of all, its challenging. An essential purchase for ANY RPG fan. Its 100% worthy of its players choice title. These are the niggles though. It takes a little time to get into and the graphics aren\'t great.Seriously, thats it. No more than that.It should be a crime not to own it.
