"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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
