It's a decent RPG, about midrange quality in my opinion. A good game, but I've played better. My wife loved it, and she put in 70 hours.

My first ever playthrough, I put in almost 60 hours, and when I finished, I realized I had missed almost all of the sidequests.

"Barkley: Shut up and jam! Gaiden" Is the best RPG of all time.

It's the only Tales game I've ever liked. From Tales of Phantasia to Symphonia to Vesperia (although I did kinda like Vesperia), Abyss is the only Tales game that hasn't had me constantly cringing from a bubbly, stereotypical anime plot (although it still is that).

I'm on my second play through with over 210 hours on it... So you can guess what I think of that game

I haven't really seen people giving it tons of praise, but it is a good game for sure especially since we don't have too many rpgs on 3DS yet.

The side quests are really out of the way though, for sure.

A lot of effort was put into the game. All main cutscenes fully voiced, 50-60 hour main story, lots of skills and artes to learn, and a ton of sidequests.

the game is like any other tales game, i.e. average.

i wish for more 2D tales of games, but they apparently never localised one of the best they made on the DS, its sad.

Some of the sidequests are completely Guide-Needing, but it's a decent game and the characters are well-developed.

To me at times it felt like playing an anime.
