About this game

Content Rating: Teen


Tales of the Abyss follows the story of the young aristocrat, Luke fon Fabre. Kidnapped seven years ago, Luke returns to his family with no memories of his life before. Suddenly, Luke is thrust into the outside world and caught in the workings of the Order of Lorelei and the Oracle Knights who serve as keepers of the prophecy known as the Score. He must learn of the power of friendship and feel the pain of sacrifice. Luke's actions could save the world or destroy it.

Despite being a rather disappointing port, Tales of the Abyss is still likable. Not much is lost by simply switching the game to 2D and appreciating it for what it is: an enjoyable handheld version of a very good Tales game that we've not seen in this region before. But for those who have already played the game on the PS2, it's harder to recommend a repeat purchase when the central new feature actively makes the game worse.

The 3DS doesn’t yet offer much choice for those who favour lengthy adventures over quick-fix pick-up-and-play games. However, if you are such a person, Tales of the Abyss should quench your thirst. It might not make the best use of the 3DS’ unique visual capabilities and certain omissions might be cause for minor grumbling, but this is still a shining example of a great JRPG and one that any fans of the genre would be foolish to pass up on.

Tales of the Abyss marks the first truly major 'proper' RPG release for the Nintendo 3DS, and whilst this is a very basic and bare-bones port of a PS2 title this sets the system's RPG library off on a good footing. Tales of the Abyss wasn't perfect back in 2005 and it's even less so now when compared to some modern gameplay titles, but it's still a fine game with charm, wit and unique ideas that make it stand out aesthetically - even if in other areas it's aged less gracefully.
