I just picked this game up for my 3DS two days ago and I haven't seen a thread here about it so I decided to make one.
First off, this is my first Tales of game so my standards for the series may be lower than what some of the veterans here might be expecting from the series. Having said that though, I'm really enjoying it so far. It reminds me a bit of the FF from PSOne era in a nostalgic sort of way.
The combat feels pretty fluid and fun. I really haven't had a full chance to play around with the various Cores and abilities (and I suspect I won't until my second playthrough) but it seems like there's a nice bit of depth to character leveling and progression.
Storywise it seems solid so far. I'm only around three hours in. I hate Luke and I'm pretty sure the developers wanted me to hate him. Rest of the cast seems pretty solid and the voice acting is actually quite good (well apart from MEU, who I guess was meant to be annoying). As a JRPG player I can obviously see the cliches of amnesia etc but I'm actually interested to see where the plot is progressing.
So far, I like the game and hope it continues to deliver for me. If it does then I will seriously be thinking about buying Tales of Innocence F on ps3 later this year and hope that Namco bites through the Microsoft money and brings Vesperia to PS3 as well.
What do you guys think of it?
