Get a video game review of the Tales of Symphonia Gamecube role-playing game from Namco!

The Tales of Symphonia role-playing video game for the Nintendo Gamecube is set in a fantasy world full of heroic adventurers and evil Desians. Before you can say "gaming cliche" there's a magical quest to save the world from the Desians and you're the hero of the day! There are monsters to fight, cool weapons to find, huge spells to unleash and villains to defeat - here's a game review on whether it's awesome or awful.

Tales of Symphonia - Double-Disc Delights!

The coolest thing about Tales of Symphonia is that it has game - tons of game. There are more missions, levels, side-quests and monsters than a single Gamecube disc can handle so it packs 80 hours of adventure onto two discs instead. There's also action-packed combat, character power-ups, puzzles to solve and lots of monsters to battle.

Tales of Symphonia - Monstrous Villains

What really keeps Tales of Symphonia from kicking more butt is that the story to the game is totally basic. You can figure out 90% of the game before you make it to level 10 and that can be a bummer if you're expecting plot twists and surprises.

Does Tales of Symphonia Save the World?

The action is great, there are tons of RPG tricks and toys you can play with to customize and power-up your characters and the graphics are very cool. It has a pretty basic plot, but if you're looking for a rock-solid Gamecube role-playing video game, Tales of Symphonia is worth picking up.

Tales of Symphonia Age Rating: Teen.

    Yeah the gameplay can get kinds stale. For the first two nights just keep the door closed all night and the power will go out 2 seconds before 6 am. I don't really have a strategy for the 3-7 nights.

    The gameplay does tend to get a little stale after a while. The camera itself is virtually useless unless you just want to see the layout of the restaurant. The only time it's helpful is when you watch foxy. If you don't check him regularly, he'll come at you. If you manage to close your door in time he'll bang on it, draining more and more power each time. Other than that, the camera is basically useless...
