  • Summary: Tales of Legendia is an epic tale of love and heroism that explores the ties that bind us all. Senel Coolidge, a young expert of the special skill called “eres,” was drifting in the misty ocean on a small boat with his younger sister Shirley. As food ran out and their strength deteriorated, an island suddenly burst through the mist and approached the boat with astonishing speed. The boat was engulfed by wild waves as Senel tried to steer it. When they woke up on the shore, they realized it was not an ordinary island, but actually the deck of the mysterious giant ship called Legacy. Have they stumbled upon an unknown civilization, or is the Legacy a relic of something long past? The 'Tales' series has been thrilling RPG fans around the world for nearly a decade. While it follows a traditional RPG format, the series is set apart by its slick presentation and art, real-time interactive battle system and clever level designs and puzzles. [Namco] Expand

  1. It has all the right ingredients to make for an enjoyable 30+ hour adventure, and if you’re willing to overlook a few of its flaws, it’s one of the better RPG experiences you can have on your PS2.
  2. Despite its flaws with pacing and the emphasis on role-playing clichés, Tales of Legendia is a very enjoyable game. The disappointment here stems largely from the fact that many fans hold the Tales series to a relatively high standard and expect a certain consistent level of quality across all facets of the experience.
  3. If you’re a fan of action RPGs or just a gamer who would like to break out of the normal turn-based combat, then Tales of Legendia should be in your PS2!
  4. The game does continue on in the Tales style, but the bulk of the content is only average.
  5. After how big a fan I was of Tales of Symphonia I was really hoping for more.
  6. A role-playing game that's just a little more interesting than the rest of the fold.
  7. Tales of Legendia is a pretty disappointing addition to a series of RPG’s that has managed to grow stale in the past few years.

    Excellant game, the music is to die for..best in the series. It does lack a few things that Symphonia had but makes up for them in the other options. Fun all around. Expand

    This game does have its flaws (like no multi-player and no VA during character quests), but' it's not a bad game. The music is really good. In this game, you get to know more about the characters than you usually would (through character quests). While i had only played Tales of Symphonia when this came out, i thought that this was a great game. Expand

    Tales of Legendia's storyline and length are amazing, although it may fall a bit short when it comes to actual character list, battle system and graphics. New Game+, Arena mode, extended storyline and a few "Feel Good" moments in the game will captivate you to play the game till the end and perhaps more. This game is still worth getting and you will have a long adventure waiting for you when you start this rare game! Expand

    Not a bad game, but the weakest in the Tales series, including the ones that didn't get localized to the US. Decent. But, if America gets this, and not the far superior Tales of the Abyss, it's a travesty. Expand

    No co-op mode! Even Tales of Destiny on the playstaiton let you have more than one player. Ruins a lot of the game's unique appeal.
