Summary

In Tales of Symphonia, follow Lloyd Irving through as he embarks on a grand adventure with his friends to restore mana back to the world of Sylvarant, a source of energy necessary for the survival of their world. Along the way they learn of the parallel world of Tethe’alla, whose survival rests on the same source of mana Sylvarant needs to sustain life. How will Lloyd and his friends find a way to ensure the survival of both worlds? Tales of Symphonia takes the signature real-time battle system of the Tales of role-playing games allowing for direct control of their character through fast-paced tactical battles.

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World is an inconsequential extra, but one that nonetheless makes the Chronicles forty dollar price tag more acceptable. The original was one of the best RPGs of its generation, and the PS3 remake will easily be snatched up by old-school fans, and those who remember the quest of Lloyd Irving and long to start it anew. The high-definition visuals are hit and miss, but the engaging combat and tried and true character customization continues to satisfy, concluding that the Tales of Symphonia series can withstand the test of time.

The two games in Tales of Symphonia Chronicles definitely feel their age, but that’s far outweighed by the charm and engaging battle system of the original Tales of Symphonia. The best I can say about Dawn of the New World is that it’s a nice extra, but it’s clear which is the better game here. Still, Chronicles as a whole is incredibly enjoyable and certainly a worthy HD port of a beloved JRPG.

Tales of Symphonia Chronicles shows its age visually, there is no way to get around that and if you are a graphics snob, this isn’t the title for you. For those who can put that aside, you will be treated with two above-average RPGs full of memorable characters, an interesting story spanning two games, and an enjoyable combat system. The bundle is a great value, especially for those who never played either of these due to their Nintendo system releases in the States.
