A Good JRPG
by Max Ingram
Well, I'd been searching high and low. I even purchased 3 or 4 games in the hopes that they might be good JRPGs, but lo and behold, they were not. Fortunately, I finally stumbled upon the newly released "Tales of Graces f", a PS3 re-release of the title previously only available on the Wii in Japan. And let me tell you folks, it's exactly what I was looking for.
It's bright and playful, with just enough faux-gravitas to make things interesting. Gorgeous anime graphics interspersed with actual hand-drawn cut-scenes. A great, real-time combat system and cute as hell characters. Who could ask for more? I'm over 30 hours deep so far and still loving it. So this one's definitely a winner!
