    When I saw video clips of this game in action, I knew I wanted to play it, unfortunately I think it's turn-based and I hate TB RPGs :(

    Tales of Phantasia on the SNES rocked so I can't wait for this one. This is the first one in the Tales-series that is set in the same world as ToP, correct?

    I'm not too sure about this game, most so called RPG which have great reviews were poor to my taste...

    We really need demo disks, here in europe.

    I enjoyed a lot Tales SNES. It had awesome graphics and music and the battle system was very enjoyable.
    I hope this is on par. What I am most worried about is the Soundtrack. I hope it to be really good.

    Saw a high quality demo video of Tales of Symphonia on a TV in a games store today (I'm in Japan at the moment), it looks really good, but not sure if it suits me as I haven't played much Tales of Destiny 2 yet.

    It is seriously about time the GC get a high quality RPG, PSO just did not cut the mustard.

    Wrong.

    Tales of Destiny 2 for PS1 is called 'Tales of Eternia' in Japan. The ToP remake for PS1 doesn't have an English release, and is named correctly.

    Great news, it´ll be sure to check it out when it arrives. I only wish all characters didn´t look like kids, but I think I can overlook it, though.

    The battle system is actually real-time, just like SNES' tales of phantasia. Its not entirely 3D, more like 2.5D since you can only go forward/backward in the scenery towards your enemies. You press buttons to make attacks and combos, etc.

    You can actually play 4 players multiplayer during battles, without the need of GBA of course, like some game.. *cough FF cough*

    Out of Sega liking, that´s the only way that would happen, because that´s pretty much it´s only "redeeming" aspect. The thing sucks, through and through. There´s not a single aspect about the game that doesn´t suck. Story, music, battle system ( that is the part that sucks the most), exploration, characters, graphics, etc.

    In short, everything in the game sucks.

    Looks like YOU don't LIKE it.
    (Refering to the DC version)
    I don't like it too much either, although my only complain is about the random encounters which annoyed me so much that I had to switch off my dreamcast and go out because I was really pissed off. (Violence doesn't solve anything)

    Except that, the game is rather nice. (Without it I would give it 70-80% with that problem it goes down to 50-60%)
