Title: Tales of Graces F
Post by: Terrorpixel on April 05, 2012, 06:19:46 PM
Anyone else start this game up yet?
I have no idea how far in the story I am, although game time wise i'm like 27 hours in.
I am enjoying it quite a bit, I thought the childhood beginning was a nice touch. Didn't feel tacked on like some games.
Not sure what to think about all the alchemy/synthesizing.
I do not like how dense the main characters are though, especially once they are betrayed..
The whole "aren't we still friends?" stuff is getting pretty old.

Otherwise it has been an enjoyable "Tales of" game thus far.

My honest opinion is that Graces (F) is the weakest game of the recent generation, with Vesperia's characters and voice acting cast as the best and Xillia's battle system + design being superior to the other two. The story for Graces just wasn't as interesting in comparison to either. However, I do agree completely that it is an enjoyable game, though I think that Tales has a strong trademark brand such that you can always expect the same formula for each of these games without a significant drop in quality each time.
