    Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World is the perfect sequel that keeps the level of the first part and improves some aspects, with modified combat mechanics. Even with the lack of a 'real' world map, which some players may find strange, it is still a must have for any classic lover.

    Finished this game a week ago. The sequel to the famous Tales of Symphonia, but too bad that it couldn't live up to the name. The story startsFinished this game a week ago. The sequel to the famous Tales of Symphonia, but too bad that it couldn't live up to the name. The story starts 2 years after Lloyd and his companions saved the world, and making Te'thealla and Sylvarant into one world. People from Te'thealla have more advanced technology than the Sylvarants, so they look down on them. The world is still pretty much in a chaos. Our hero, Emil, is a weak minded boy whose parents was killed by Lloyd Irving in the event of "Blood Purge" in Palmacosta. While everybody's praising Lloyd for saving the world, Emil lives his life hating Lloyd. And after meeting Richter and Marta, his life changed forever.

    Plus point:
    - While this is a classic RPG, the game was in Wii. So it pretty much has a better graphics, and also 60 fps for the game, making everything moves smoothly.
    - Returning characters from the previous series. You will get every characters from the previous game as your party member, which is awesome.
    - No world map exploring anymore! You can go straight to the city or town u want, or dungeons, or whatever, with a click od a button. Very good, considering the map is the same with previous game, with nothing new to see anymore.

    Minus point:
    - The plot is not that bad, but the characters of Emil and Marta aren't exactly what i called "loveable". Emil is a weak minded boy, so while playing this game, i sometimes find myself really angry with Emil for his undecisiveness. While Marta, showing his affection towards Emil in a very extreme way, although it seems to cease towards the end of the game.
    - Only 2 main characters can Level up? That's just crazy. You get every party members from the previous game, but they can passed through lvl 50. I don't know why, but they are capped at 50. While Emil, Marta & the monsters can go through all the way till 99. Also the plot of catching monsters and using them in battle with only 2 main characters, smells a lil bit like FFXIII-2 to me. Maybe FF took that system from this game. Totally useless.

    The Verdict:
    I'm sorry to say, this game might be one of the worst Tales of i ever played. The plot actually isn't that bad, but the gameplay system & unlovable main characters makes the game even worst. While you get to see the conclusions to the symphonia chronicles, i still think that this game is just unnecessary. 6/10 from me.
