I will say that Eternal Sonata had a great idea for a story and a vibrant world to carry that story. The way they chose to present it otherwise, however, completely bored me and was so full of anime (and, subsequently, JRPG) cliches that I couldn't make it very far in. The battle system was a nice play on the "Tales" system, but those damn characters were so uninteresting to me that watching them fight was not an entertaining prospect.

Oh, geez, I didn't even tell you that I liked the review, though I disagree with it's final conclusions. I've got seven documents to edit and send in the next hour, otherwise I'd sit down and give you a solid feedback. For now, just know that I think you are in need of some grammar work but you have a strongly developed engaging voice which could take you far if you decide to keep writing!

The problem with JRPG's today is that you'll be hard-pressed to find one that isn't based on or looks like some kind of Anime which, thanks to mainstream popularity and anime's own gimmicks have caused the medium to be looked down upon. Sonata definitely has its own style that sets it apart from other anime-esque games like final fantasy 13-2 for instance, which is why personally I still play Sonata on occasion probably more so than other JRPG in my collection probably more so than final fantasy 13 or its sequel.

To be fair though, it's still a solid game otherwise. Anime is still very popular here in the states so the appeal in the game plays to that audience. Feel free to throw your comments my way and p.m. me about grammatical errors. Looking forward to the feedback.
