So why do people seem to hate Tales of Graces f?

I'm playing through it right now and honestly I think its one of PlayStation 3's best jRPGs. Characters are likable, story is interesting, graphics are really nice, and gameplay is one of the best in recent jRPGs. Yes, these are all obviously opinions but I just find the game so addicting. I'm loving the Title system and aim to max them all before beating the game.

Only character I can see being "annoying" is Pascal, but if you like Rikku from Final Fantasy X / X-2, you'll like Pascal.

Because the story, characters, graphics, music, voice acting, and AI are garbage.

Pascal is the best.

Storyline is entertaining but not the best since the theme is kinda annoying. The gameplay is where it shines.

Alot of people just hate the VA but I loved it.

I didn't like the characters, story, or game play. I found the combat system to be very awkward and never did like it. Overall I felt it was a below average game that is far from being among the worst.

>Has played all but 1 or 2 Tales games.

Graces f is by far the worst I've played. Yes it's worse than Legendia.

Everyone "seems to hate" everything around here.

I personally liked Graces. Xillia is better, though.

Glad DmC shipped a million copies and was a success. Supporting risk-takers and change is how the industry grows.

I'm tempted to agree.

Grace f isn't a bad game, it's just not a good game. It relies far too heavily on tired cliches, unlikable characters, and tired tropes. Obviously, these are all elements that characterize Tales Of games in general, but Graces just seems to lack the charm, the earnestness that makes the series special. Rather than set out to make a new game, it feels more like it's the result of a bunch of developers getting together and listing out things that fit the Tales Of formula... and just tossing all of those elements into a game without a whole lot of thought. It just lacks the sort of overarching aesthetic to really come together into a cohesive unit.
