Average User Score: 8.6Aug 7, 2013I have always been a Final Fantasy fan, but Tales of Graces last year made me a believer in Namco's rpg series. While Graces was easily the best game I played in years, the time I have spent with Tales of Xillia (so far I'm at chapter 2 in Jude's scenario) has been so good and rewarding I think it will be my next top dog for quite some time. I especially appreciate the story, the music and the overworld you travel in, those are big improvements over Graces. I haven't even finished the game and I already wish I had Xillia 2 to start immediately after it.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.1Mar 17, 2012I've put 30 hours into the game in less than one week, and I think it's my lifetime record so far. Graces is the best JRPG I have played in years, and its battle system is a lesson about this genre's potential other developer should learn from. The characters are also surprisingly likeable and funny, and their personalities are well defined and presented. I know a full score is a big investment on a game, but if I don't give this game a 10 then I really don't know which game in the last year could deserve it, especially in this genre.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.9Nov 3, 2011fate extra is yet another great jrpg on psp, with the added bonus of a great plot written by nasu of fate stay night fame. the choices provided during the game, along with the possibility to replay it using different servants, really boost the replayability factor, and the localization is one of the best seen this year. it plays like a mix of traditional dungeon crawler and turn based duels where you have to memorize enemy patterns in order to counter them, an interesting combination that feels really fresh compared with other games' stale mechanics.
every type moon and jrpg fan should give this game a chance, it's really unique and well crafted.… Expand
