description

Tales of Destiny is a remake of the original PlayStation™ version, featuring new graphics, new techniques, new scenes, new skits and more, it's everything a remake should be.The game uses the AR-LMBS battle system, which allows for massive combos in mid-air, something never before seen in a Tales game. The characters all gain new techniques, some of which are from Tales of Destiny 2. Stahn and co have hi-ougis this time around, which look even more spectacular than those seen in previous Tales.Previously in Tales games, skits have just features talking character portraits with litte to no animation. Not any more. Say hello to the new "Emotional Card" system, which shows a character's full body during skits, with fluid animation adding a new dimention to skits, which could previously be tedious to watch.

Tales of Destiny
Tales of Destiny was the first Tales game to be released in the U.S. and it got some pretty bad reviews at its time( mostly because of FF7’s ZOMGBESTGAMEEVER-ness). ToD doesn’t really do anything beyond the capabilities of average RPGs, but that doesn’t stop it from being a great game.

Gameplay: Being the second Tales game ever made its pretty obvious what the battles are like; SLOW, SLOW, and SSLLLOOOWW. But the battles aren’t really that bad even though they are slower than ToP GBA( at least from what I’ve played). Like ToP for the SFC, you cannot do 2-hit combos by pressing the A button or whatever-the-A-button-would-be on a PS1. Pressing, or mashing, the A button will result only in one slash, which can vary depending on the direction you press with it. ToD takes the first step to modern Tales games by giving ToP SFC’s skills-that-are-determined-by-your-distance-from-the-enemy the boot and replacing it with press-the-B-button-or-whatever-it-is-along-with-a-direction-to-use-your-skills.

Sound/Music: ToD has some of the best music in the Tales series. Rebel Against Destiny=WIN
Namco being lazy and not putting English audio was also pretty cool.

Story: Its okay from what I have played, but the script is not as good as it could have been. The script/dialogue is at least better than ToP GBA’s, so that’s a good thing.

Graphics: They’re decent.

Final Rating: 9/10 because the music and JP audio makes it auto-win. Why? I don’t know. It just does :)

Best Tales game ever? Thats going a tad to far but its still an excellent remake.
Im going to make this short but sweet so listen up...
GOOD
> Much better than the oringial, improving on every aspect of it.
> Deeper, more interesting characters
> Completey altered script and some story changes.
> Bosses and some enemies are hard
> Revamped battle system that breathes new life into the Tales series.
> Detailed graphics and 2D spirites with more imagination than previous Tales games.
> Challenging puzzles
> Not as frustrating as the original
> Import friendly. Thats the best thing.
BAD
>Not as frustrating, but in certain areas you may be driven close to insanity. Like the original.
> The bit with the Aethersphere is still as boring as ever.
> The battle system can take some time to get used too. (Put your characters on Auto for one battle. You will cry when you see how skilled Stahn is compared to you.)
>Demands leveling up in certain areas, but this doesnt happen very often.
>Some enemies are really REALLY annoying.
IN CONCLUSION...
Its an amazing Tales game that will sit with your favourite games for ages and ages...but I still think Rebirth is the best tales game. But personal opinions aside, this is a huge leap forward for the Tales series and is worth your hard earned money.

The Definition of Remake.
This game is awesome beyond words. Hardly any loading times, lovable characters, and fast paced battles makes Tales of Destiny one of the best in the series ever. If you thought Tales of the Abyss\' battle system and difficulty was great, wait till you play this. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone that is a fan of the Tales series.
