Tales of the Abyss, worth picking up?

I'm probably going to be picking up a 3DS soon since it now seems to have enough games to satisfy me. This game attracted my attention, so now I'm curious if it's worth a look.

Yes, if you haven't played the original. It's a long, fun and challenging game that will keep you entertained for about 50 hours, at least.

imo no. The story turned me off, and all the characters were unlikable. Yeah you can spend 50 hours playing the game if you can stomach the terrible plot and unlikable cast. Just a warning.

Definitely yes. I just picked it up yesterday. Last copy at my Gamestop. Better snatch it before it becomes rare!

Yes, it is worth it. Don't listen to people who say that the characters are unlikable. There was one or two and there is a big change in mc a few hours in. The combat is real time, fast and above all, fun. There isn't much grinding at all, but there are a few times when you just get thrown around the map talking to the right npcs.

But get it, it's probably the best 3ds game out there.
Not changing until DeSu: Overclocked gets to Australia.
