I wonder why this game is so love/hate. Anyway, Abyss was my first Tales game, and it was a great place to start. I think Tales of the Abyss is fantastic and worth a shot for any RPG fan.
But like any game, or anything in life really, thereís a chance you may not like it for whatever reason, but youíll never know unless you try it for yourself! I say go for it if you havenít tracked it down already.

Why're people assuming it's rare and expensive? I can find the 3DS version fairly easily. Just a quick check on eBay shows me that most copies are going for around MSRP. Don't have Paypal? Amazon shows me Tales of the Abyss new for around MSRP, too. Don't mind used? $30 + Shipping.
If you don't mind waiting and don't mind shopping on the internet you can find anything and everything.
