Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the new world

#1SriVastraPosted 2/7/2013 9:42:11 AM
I found this game at my local GameStop, and it seems like it's very similar to Ni No Kuni. Has anyone played it? Any comparisons or pros/cons you can make between this and Ni No Kuni? Should I bother? I have bad luck with spin-off "sequels". I hated X-2 and XIII-2, and I'm about as big a FF nut as you'll find.

Tales of Symphonia >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Dawn of the new world.

This game is much better than DoTNW but not better than Tales of Symphonia or Tales of the Abyss.

It's a bad game, an awful sequel, and widely accepted as one of if not the worst Tales game available outside Japan.

To be fair, DotNW isn't even a Mothership title.

Except for Tempest, it is probably the worst Tales out there, mainline game or not.

Anything specific that makes it bad? I really liked NnK and am just looking for something similar that isn't Pokémon.

If anything, it has a good fight with the GBA Phantasia port for worst.

Very true, if you like NnK and have yet to play a Dragon Quest, then you have multiple hours of goodness awaiting you.
