The humor of TC can be enjoyed by all ages, but it's mostly structured for a younger audience. However, in a day when more and more Playstation games are being rated teen and above, a kid's rating isn't necessarily a bad thing, especially if you're a concerned parent. This game most likely won't reach the popularity of Atlus' Thousand Arms, but it's a solid game all-around and built for the RPG fan who wants a nice story and well-done anime, but not the full challenge of a real action/adventure game. Even if you don't feel this game is for you, maybe it's a good way to introduce a younger sibling or relative to the colorful world of gaming!

PSM (Dec, 1999)
Though it's not incredibly deep or difficult, and it certainly doesn't do anything revolutionary as far as graphics or gameplay, it's near impossible to find fault in something so amazingly harmless and thoroughly enjoyable-two appealing qualities most games seem to lack these days. Charming, wacky, and obnoxiously cute, Atlus' choice to bring Tail Concerto to the US masses can't be called anything but a blessing in disguise.

Sin embargo no todo es perfecto, ya que su duración es corta (seis u ocho horas como mucho) y los textos están en francés en su versión PAL, ya que el juego nunca se distribuyó oficialmente en España. Como curiosidad, hay que mencionar que en 2007 Bandai hizo público el desarrollo de un nuevo videojuego para PlayStation 2 cuyo artwork oficial recordaba a Tail Concerto, lo que daba a entender que la secuela de éste juego estaba en camino para la 128 bits de Sony, pero la cosa no fue más allá y ahora el proyecto está destinado para Nintendo DSi y todo sigue apuntando a que es la secuela de Tail Concerto. Sinceramente, nosotros esperamos de corazón que así sea.

Fans of the innocent fun portrayed by games like Klonoa and Pac-Man World will see past the basic graphics and have a good old time catching cats!

Beyond the cute exterior of Tail Concerto lies a fun game that is just too short for its own good. Great graphics and sound effects manage to make it entertaining, but there isn't enough to attract a huge audience outside of young gamers. How short is it? It's childsplay compared to what it could have been! Had it been longer, it would have been much more enjoyable, and perhaps could have struck a wider variety of customers. As it lies, it's a questionable buy, and an easy rental.

For all these great assets, there are a few unfortunate shortcomings. The most glaring is that the difficulty is way too easy and making matters worse, the game is very short. It would have been nice to see more levels and side stories, but the main audience for the game should love it. Because of that, you can add an extra disc to the rating if you're under the age of 12. For everyone else, Tail Concerto is a highly recommended rental and a nice diversion for gamers looking for a lighthearted adventure.

GameSpot (May 12, 1998)
Tail Concerto's only real flaw is its length. Experienced players will breeze through the game in less than five hours, almost never having to push the limits of their gaming prowess. The game feels as though it could've been a lot more. For example, the jetpack stage is practically only a bonus stage, but it could've been used as a training session for a real jetpack action scene. Instead, the jetpack is nothing more than a gimmick for one minor quest. With gaping holes of opportunity like that, some players are bound to feel a tinge of dissatisfaction after completing the game.

Tail Concerto est un titre des plus inégaux. Alternant entre phases de gameplay imbuvables et passages parfois loufoques, on ne sait plus trop quoi penser du soft dans sa totalité. La seule chose qui pourra marquer le joueur sont les extraits d'animation très agréables à visionner. Mais si vous êtes désireux de garder votre intérieur intact, il n'est guère conseillé de s'atteler à un tel jeu. On en vient même à se demander si les enfants auxquels le soft est destiné ont réussi à en venir à bout sans encombres.
