Of the Tale's games I have played probably the weakest, but still good in its own right.
This game in the Tale's game series is the weakest I have played so far. Not that it is bad as the characters were funny and well done and the story was pretty good the graphics are just a bit underdone here. Also, Tales of Symphonia and Tales of the Abyss were so expansive and encompassing while this one seemed really bogged down at times. Granted you have the cute cooking stuff and skits the fighting is the same too for the most part. However, I will say this of this entry it has the easiest fighting of the trio I have played. I didn't die once in this one, not even during the hardest fights, my characters buzz sawed through everyone. The story a brother and sister are on a boat trying to avoid an enemy of some sort, however they end up landing on a massive vessel so large it has its own towns and lakes and it is here their journey takes place. What makes this one unique is also a bit of a limiter as all the action takes place on this vessel in the sea. You basically have one main city and a couple of really small towns you only go through once and you also progress through this game in chapters. The fighting has the same flaw as the other tales games as one feels compelled to use only the main character as it is the one I got used to in this case Senel. Still despite its rather small scope it still is interesting enough to keep your interest up and the fights in this one go by super fast.
