Today I went out and bought a new 3ds game and out of the two games I had in mind, I chose Tales of the Abyss over Metal Gear Solid (due to the fact that I didnt wanna wait to order a circle pad pro and play the game with the finicky controls. And because I felt that I wanted a style of game I have never played before). Well at first I was really skeptical before buying Tales, since im not much of an anime fan (anymore), but I gave it a shot anyways and forked over the 40 dollars for the game, I was almost scared that I would end up regretting the purchase. But to my surprise I actually really like this game so far! The camera style is very unique and so is the battle system. The graphics really arent that bad either, only complain is that the colors could be a little more vivid. A co-op or multiplayer mode wouldve been sweet as well. So yeah as far as I know, I dont regret buying this game and I would recommend anyone try it. So yeah thats pretty much my 2 cents/short review.
