    I already have it a month! But it is a great game. Just cheap 3D effect.

    Tempest and several other Tales of are much less known than Innocence. =S

    On topic, I already have Abyss for teh 3DS since its launch in Europe since it came much earlier here. x3
    I hope this remake for the 3DS means there'll be more localised Tales games in english.

    I'm getting it even though its a horrible game. I like to support the tales series when ever I can, even when they make something that doesn't need to exist.

    Abyss isn't a 'horrible' game, it's not as good as some of the other Tales games, but it's still a pretty good game, one of the best PS2 rpgs (although Legendia was much better imho)

    aww why did you think it was horrible? i watched the anime just to get a taste of the story, and i thought it was compelling to say the least.

    Tales Of The Abyss is one of the games that made me want a 3DS in the first place.
    Loved it on the ps2

    The game came after legendia which already wasn't a good start since that was a pretty awesome game.

    Aside from that on its own the characters, and story aren't well written at all after you get the replacement for luke. Along with that outside of battle characters are very stiff and lifeless with very few well moving animations. The textures in the game are poor feeling like they come from a PS1 game rather than a PS2 game.

    The music jesus christ the music on its own the music is fine but when your in for the long haul it gets grating. The game's motif is in almost every song and way to noticeable making everything sound the same. With the way things build to the end the horrible writting, having to look at the fucking bastard characters, and at the peak hear the same damn bump of chicken song in orchestral just to be topped with a cliff hanger makes the game horrible.

    After all that the game isn't even finished. similar to vesperia it was pushed out not done. Obviously in game you are suppose to have Ion be playable, and not so obviously VAN OF ALL PEOPLE WAS SUPPOSE TO BE PLAYABLE.

    Credit due though the battle system is a delight, it has its moments, and the music when played on its own is really good.

    This is hugely subjective....i'd wager that the majority of people wouldn't feel the same way....

    The PS2 was so filled with AMAZING RPG's that to name but one would be a travesty....but Abyss boasted flaws that would put it in the worth playing category rather than essentials category of RPG.

    You're completely broken if you actually believe what you just said.


    I'll be getting this at launch. This and Graces need to do fantastic or we'll never see Xillia.



    Enjoy waiting forever. It'll never come. Basically the same game already exists on the 360, there's just some filler content that was added for the PS3 version.
    Sure, it'd be cool to have...but there's no point waiting for it, or hoping they waste resources to release it in English when they could do something more useful instead.
