"THE GBA RUINED IT"
4 stars"

I've played the SNES and Playstation versions of this game, they were great. However, when I got to this version, ENGLISH VOICES, normally they dont bother me, but if you've played Star Ocean 2…they have the same voice acting…CRAP, emotionless dolls screaming pansy battle crys…it kinda ruins it.

BUT, if you dont care for those small things lol, Tales of Phantasia is one of the best games i've played!

"The meanest rpg"
5 stars"

I think that this game was great and enjoyed the battling style. It is cool as how you can go make pacts with speacial monsters like Maxwell and the Moon spirit Luna and then summon them in battle.

"Has not aged well"
2 stars"

I loved Tales of Symphonia, so bought this hoping for more of the same. There are many similarities, but you can tell pretty early on that a lot of the problems in this game had to be fixed to make the Tales series worthwhile. The 2D combat systam is really basic and comes down to button bashing mostly. You would have to be really old school to enjoy this game. If you want to try the Tales series don't start here. Get Symphonia or even better wait for Tempest on the DS.

"Its Not that good"
2 stars"

This is a classic RPG game and i must say GBA have brought out the best. Its along the same lines as the golden sun games.

But the batteling is quite crude and really boring that you'll find yourself running away. The storyline is quite difficult to follow aswell, as they don't have pictures or names of people who are speaking and you get very confused. I bought this game thinking that it will be fun but after the first ten minuets gave up and haven't played since.

But i suppose its up to the individuals, as i don't really like Final Fantasy games and there like a real hit LOL

So if you are looking at buying this game it might be more convinient if you research it a bit more, and see if its really for you.

Description

When young swordsman Cress Albane finds his home village destroyed and his parents killed, Cress sets off on an adventure to find those responsible. In his efforts to uncover those behind this evil deed, Cress soon finds himself on a mission that will take him back and forth through time. Tales of Phantasia is a role-playing game in which players are able to explore freely on a "world map," encountering random monster battles as they journey from location to location. Players can attack their enemies in real time, striking their opponents by using commands on the D-pad in a similar fashion to a fighting game. The game uses the unique "Linear Motion Battle System," which allows players to attack enemies in real time, giving the game more of an action feel than the standard role-playing game has. In addition, the game features a Monster Dictionary, where players can collect and record the information about creatures they come across. Finally, with the unique Cooking System, players must earn new recipes and find specific ingredients that allow their characters to restore hit and magic points. When young swordsman Cress Albane returns home to find his village torn asunder and his parents killed, he is forced to set out on a quest through time and space to uncover the villains behind the tragedy. This classic role-playing game from the popular "Tales" series comes to the United States for the first time. FEATURES:
  • Battle in real time: The Linear Motion Battle System puts the emphasis on action as players attack their enemies without the use of menus.
  • New game events, dialogue sequences and other features enhance the adventure on this release.
  • Players can crack open the Monster Dictionary to view the strengths and weaknesses of the enemies they meet in battle. Players will want to collect data on them all.
  • Players use the innovative Cooking System to collect ingredients and recipes to brew up meals that restore their health and magic.
