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. --- "It's showtime!" - Phantom R ~ Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure (3DS) http://backloggery.com/tronbonne

I like it enough... but after a solid month of playing it and getting only about halfway, I had to tak a break.
I'll get back to it. --- Currently playing: Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask Rainbow Dash is best pony. Fact.

It's by far the best game on the handheld, so I'd say yes.

It's not rare and expensive. There are about 6 copies nestled neatly in a row on a shelf in my local GameStop store for $29.99.
Should have mentioned that outside US it is.
Zavvi is selling it for £19.99. In stock. Well, it was earlier today when I was there. --- Now playing: Dragon's Dogma, Batman AC, Fifa 13, Sonic Racing. Just finished: Trine 2 DC.

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. --- 3DS: 2363 - 5923 - 1853

It's an awesome game. It seems to get a lot of hate on this board for some reason.
