"Tales of Eternia" schneidet in allen Belangen positiv ab. Negative Kritikpunkte lassen sich einfach nicht finden, denn selbst die Musikkulisse ist vom feinsten, auch wenn richtige Ohrwürmer rar gesät sind. Ich kann dieses Spiel absolut empfehlen, da es wirklich zur Elite des Genres gehört. Für mich persönlich zählt es zu den zehn besten Rollenspielen, die ich jemals spielen durfte.

Anyway, if you consider yourself a fan of the Tales series, you wouldn’t even have to read this review to know that Tales of Destiny II is a hit!

On peut sans hésiter dire que Tales of Eternia/ Destiny II est un vrai chef d'œuvre du genre que tout amateur qui se respecte se doit de posséder, et une vraie leçon pour tous les développeurs de RPG. Pour information, à l'heure où j'écris (novembre 2003) on peut le trouver quasi-neuf à un prix variant de 40 à 60 euros environs. Un prix que vaut amplement une aventure bourrée de charme et comme on aimerait en voir plus souvent. Un des indispensables du RPG 32 bits, qui vous apportera un plaisir de jeu immense.

In terms of buying value, this game is a definitely a must buy. In terms of ranking this game in the top list of rpgs for the Playstation, it's definitely in the top 10. If you love Star Ocean and an interactive battle system that's fast and furious then I recommend that you get this game. Heck I recommend you get this game anyways. This is probably 2001 best rpg game but then again Dragon Warrior 7 may dispute that.

Il n’y a vraiment rien à reprocher à Tales of Eternia. Qu’il s’agisse des graphismes, des combats ou de l’étude des personnages, toutes les bases de la série ont été revues à la hausse pour un résultat excellent. Long, magnifique, jouissif à souhait, ce nouvel opus est bien la preuve que cette lignée de contes de Namco fait partie des plus grands noms du jeu de rôle japonais.

Unlike the game before it, Tales of Destiny 2 is a winner in its own right. The battle system of the Tales series, a gem in itself, has been taken to new heights and can be as hectic as a fighting game. With this and a solid quest behind it, Namco has a winner. Hopefully the Tales series will continue, but at least the game proves to be one of the best of the last generation of Playstation RPG's.

Tales of Eternia is easily one of the finest games on the PSP. Fans of RPG's and substantial portable games must own and play this game.

Namco have produced a cracking PSP title with Tales of Eternia. It's an essential purchase for anyone who thirsts for RPG gaming on the go. It's charming, well presented, deep, involving and infinitely rewarding. If every remake was like this, modern gaming would be a much nicer place.

There really aren't enough good things I can say about Tales of Eternia. The original game was quite good, but on the PSP the game is unrivaled. The story, while cliché, is enjoyable; the battle system is fast, fun and addicting; the sound and graphics are a treat for the ears and eyes; and there's just so much to do besides fighting and questing. No RPG released thus far crams as much to do on that little UMD as this. Were this game coming out in North America, I would be happy to implore that you pick it up.

Tales of Eternia is without a doubt a must have for any RPG fan and for everyone with a PSP in their backpack. Beautiful graphics, streamlined gameplay for both new and experienced gamers, a very deep real-time combat system and very short loading times make this game the first succesful RPG for Sony's handheld. A pearl that you'll finish with a smile on your face!

Ultimately, TOD2 manages to be an excellent RPG. If you can manage to look past the surface of this game, you will find an incredibly deep experience that you will love. If you are an RPG fan, you must have this game. And even if you are a casual fan, be sure to check TOD2 out anyway.

Tales of Eternia is, for RPG fans, an essential purchase on PSP. Even if you're only an occasional RPG player, or haven't spent time playing RPG's then there's no better time to start. Thanks Ubisoft for bringing this out in PAL territories - it's brilliant.

Einfach herrlich, dass in Zeiten der „gezwungen Innovationen“ doch noch einige Hersteller den Mut zeigen und zu ihren Wurzeln stehen. So beschert uns Namco mit Tales of Eternia ein wunderschön traditionelles, relativ geradliniges und nicht übermäßig komplexes Rollenspiel der alten Schule. Wohl dosierte Zufallskämpfe, eine Herz-Schmerz-Story epischen Ausmaßes und ein actionreiches Echtzeitkampfsystem verhelfen der PSP zu einem grandiosen Rollenspieldebüt. Das muss ein Final Fantasy erstmal besser machen...

Tales Of Eternia peut se prévaloir d'une immense accessibilité qui le destine aussi bien aux novices, aux rôlistes confirmés, aux rêveurs d'un jour ou aux joueurs impétueux cherchant un mixe entre l'aventure made in Japan et le beat'em all. Prônant la candeur d'un univers attachant, ToE reste assez classique par bien des aspects tout en profitant d'un gameplay étudié, d'une touche graphique somptueuse et d'une histoire, certes peu originale, mais alignant malgré tout les morceaux de bravoure. Soyez à l'écoute, la lecture du conte commence et avec elle la promesse d'un émerveillement continu.

Compared to other games in its class, Tales of Destiny II is a competitor, if not necessarily the first choice. I'd play Valkyrie Profile first, given its far more interesting narrative, Persona 2's atmosphere smokes almost any alternative, and they've all of them got pretty questionable English dubs. The Tales battle system is in a class by itself, though, especially if you've never played any other game in the series. Of course, if you can get the first Tales of Destiny, that might actually be the worthier purchase, particularly since you ought to be able to get it cheap these days.

With the relatively small offering of quality role playing games on the PSP, it is safe to say that Tales of Eternia is one of the better games currently on the market. Although the battle system can become tiring after only several hours of play, the engaging storyline and interesting characters that you meet help to maintain your interest in the game through to the end. For those looking for a solid, lengthy RPG on the PSP, Tales of Eternia is worth a look.

Un simple portage, certes, mais le jeu de base était très bon et c'est typiquement le genre adapté à une portable. Quel pied de redécouvrir le troisième épisode de la série dans le train, le bus ou l'avion!

Even with its weaknesses, it's the little hings that make ToD2 such a memorable RPG after it's all said and done. While the random battles happen a little too often and the vocal tracks can be bad at times, the characters truly make this a treasure for RPG fans.

As far as translations go, Namco did a phenomenal job. The spoken dialogue fits perfectly, and the story flows from point to point. The one thing Namco didn’t stay true to is the look of the game. Although the graphics are in the anime fashion, realism is dispersed throughout. In every conceivable way, Tales of Destiny II transcends its problematic predecessor and stands as a well thought out old-school RPG.

Innovative real-time combat and a host of mini-games that take you off the beaten track to appreciate the scale of the quest also help make Eternia the best role-player on the PSP, and even though the action can often become tedious when you get stuck in rambling conversations with the locals while searching for clues, this is still a charming and compelling adventure.

Bonne initiative de la part d’Ubisoft que de distribuer ce jeu en Europe. Mais, au même titre que Star Ocean 3 sur PlayStation 2, le jeu souffre d’une absence de traduction en français, ce qui constitue un frein pour ceux qui ne comprennent rien à l’anglais. Ce n’est pas ainsi que Tales of Eternia pourra s’imposer à côté de gros titres comme Final Fantasy. Même s’il ne s’agit pas du meilleur épisode de la série, cette conversion est remarquable, avec des temps de chargement presque inexistants, ce qui est un bel exploit sur la console de Sony. Si vous aimez les RPG en 2D et que vous êtes un familier de la série, ce jeu est pour vous. Difficile de ne pas craquer face à une ambiance aussi extraordinaire. Tous les facteurs sont réunis pour que le jeu vous plaise, reste le blocage de la langue, qui risque d’en rebuter pas mal.

That said, this is by far and away the best RPG for the PSP currently on the market and, if you never make the denouement and staff roll, you'll likely have had enough fun climbing all over its most solid of frames that in the end, the Tales don't really matter that much after all.

In Tales of Destiny II, two alternate worlds Inferia and Celestia face certain destruction unless an ancient puzzle is solved. Enter Reid, intrepid protagonist, and his band of clueless heroes, ready to embark on an epic quest in search of the puzzle pieces that spans not only both worlds, but time itself.

Despite graphical and dubbing problems, Tales of Eternia is guaranteed to hold PSP RPG owners until the next big wave of games arrives for the system. While the game is only available in America through import, it’s still reasonably priced through Ebay, Amazon, etc. Although there’s no additional content for people who already played the original, besides the title change, people who have yet to experience a Tales game will be good to give it a go. Recommended.

Hoping to make up for the poor original, Namco gives us Tales of Destiny II before PlayStation gives up the ghost. While this sequel may not make it to the upper echelon of the system's RPGs, it's a definite improvement over its precursor, and a nifty game overall.

Tales of Eternia est vraiment un jeu agréable que je recommande donc chaudement aux possesseurs non seulement de PSP mais aussi à ceux qui ont gardé leur Playstation et qui désire découvrir un bon RPG.

PlayStationGameSpot
As is often the case with RPGs, Tales of Destiny II is best recommended to real fans of the genre. Its story won't quite engage your intellect, and its graphics won't blow your mind. The fact remains, though, that if you like RPGs, it's a good bit of fun to play, and for fans of fun games, that may be all the recommendation necessary.

Tales of Eternia, c'est une aventure classique dans son déroulement, dans les thèmes qu'elle aborde et dans son gameplay en général, mais qui reste malgré tout très intéressante. Le système de combats drôlement bien foutu et la finition exemplaire mais surtout l'extrême beauté des environnements visités en font une expérience non pas unique, mais très plaisante et envoûtante, que l'on soit un gros consommateur de RPGs ou un joueur occasionnel. A condition de parler anglais, le jeu n'étant pas traduit.
