This review is from: Tales of the Abyss - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
This game, like all (if not most) of the Tales Of series have the best re playability value you'll ever come across to a game.
The game play is one of the best. It can become broken/easy on your second walk through of the game because of all the power ups you will have. Other than that I can play the battle system all day.
The story is pretty neat. I loved it. I can't say its one of the best though.
The graphics is lovely. I don't care for graphics but all of the effects are cool and brings in that extra awesomeness to the meter when pulling off so many epic moves and then finishing it off with a Field of Fona special. It's pretty/eye candy.
The characters, Jade is awesome with his pac man belt. Luke you may hate him during the first half but because a likeable character. Guy is truly epic and we need more like him in the world of real life. Tear is nice. But for the others you may find them annoying, useless or moody. Some of the god generals are cool like Dist the Rose.
The bad, loading times. That's the only thing to annoy you. Also not enough boss battles. Challenge is pretty weak, very easy to beat the game.
I give this game 10/10 not because it has perfect everything, its because it gives you more than what you paid for. The game can go for 40 hours (I believe) on first walkthrough with out any side quest. You'll find yourself spending lots of time on it, especially if you like to get everything.
