    I heard great things about both, but I'm still not sure what I should play next. So, what do YOU recommend?

    definately eternal sonata. it allows you to play with every member of your party in each fight, turn by turn.

    in tales of veperia you can only play with one character in a fight. this can be whichever character you choose. it then tries ot mix it up using combos etc.

    I think Tales of Vesperia has better reviews... not sure. I was also wondering which to start first.

    I'd say Tales of Vesperia. Eternal Sonata is just Japano shit. [​IMG]
    (Though ToV is aswell).

    Well if you want to go by terms of length: Eternal Sonata is 25 hours on average; while Vesperia can be 40 on average. I've played both, but I'm somewhat bias so I would say Vesperia then Sonata. Since even if it is "just another Tales game" the story is pretty nice, battles epic, etc.

    Your preference though:

    Tales of Vesperia is being remade for the ps3 with a ton more stuff so might be worth it to wait to see if its gets ported back to the 360 with all the extra stuff included

    Tales. The story is far more cohesive.

    The same can be said of Eternal Sonata, which also had a remake on the PS3 with more stuff, including two new characters and added costumes.
    Though unlike Vesperia, it doesn't looks like Eternal Sonata is ever going to get all the extra stuff the PS3 version has.
