    Thumbs up Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of The New World Review

    Title: Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of The New World
    Release Date: November 11, 2008
    Publisher: Namco Bandai
    Genre: RPG
    ESRB Rating: T

    Good Side
    The storyline kept me interested in the game. Would advise trying the first Tales of Symphonia for GC to understand it better though.

    Bad Side
    The story was shorter than the original game for Gamecube.

    The controls were really easy to learn and master. Doesn't involve much of the wii's motion gimmick.

    A - Attack or Interact
    B - Special Technique (Arte)
    C - Unison Attack
    Z - Block or Use Sorcerer's Ring
    Joy Stick - Move

    Depending on how much you leveled up, the game could have been challenging or easy. For example. The first time I played the game, I was around Level 50 - 53 by the time I reached the final boss, this made it somewhat challenging but pulled through in the end. The second time I played the game, I was somewhere around Level 58 - 62 by the time I reached the final boss, it wasn't difficult to win. But being a high level isn't just enough, strategy can help, Instead of just charging straight up to an enemy an using an arte (technique) isn't going to help. Instead, the enemy will probably block it, its going to make you lose Tech Points (TP) and probably going to get yourself damaged.

    The music really got me into the mood of the game. Made it feel more realistic. Especially the battle music.

    Special Stuff
    A good bonus after you beat the game is the fact that you can spend your earnt grade to keep your artes, skills etc or even give your self an advantage or disadvantage when starting a new game.

    A somewhat decent RPG. Worth a try if you're interested in JRPGs.

    Got it. When I sit down and play it hours go by, but it isn't calling my name when I'm not on my wii.

    This is the game that got me into the Tales series last year, and now it is one of my favorite game series of all time. Now that I look back at it, it's not as good as the other Tales games, but it is still a fun rpg.
