I really want to enjoy Tales of the Abyss...

I mean it's got a great dynamic battle system with nice character stat building and strategy sets but the story, world setting, art direction and dialog is corny as hell. I'll see it through but I don't understand why this is considered one of the best Tales games.

because it is.
and it's not corny at all.

i agree. TotA has way too much backtracking. It loses its freshness after a while. The story is kinda boring too.

ToS and ToH are my favorites. Really good gameplay and stories.

It has more Fons than funs.

One of the best Tales games still means it's a mediocre game.

The backtracking is what really hurts this game imo but I still like this game allot and have put many hours into it.

The story and setting are really great imo, but the terrible cast and backtracking really do kind of kill the game.
