For those who were asking~
I got Tales of the Abyss a few days ago, started playing the day I got it. It has been pretty neat so far though I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone. As I was told the game has a LOT of dialogue and there are moments when you’re just like “when do I get to kick some monster butt already!?” but you get used to it (at least I did) and everything else goes pretty smoothly. I had some trouble with the Sword Dancer #1 boss fight. I only had 2 apple gels and like 5 life bottles and my party was dying a lot. Used Guy as party leader followed by Anise and kept Luke out of the battle and this seemed more effective. I still died anyways because I didn’t have enough pots to heal my party. Guess I’ll try to do it when I’m a little bit higher. I’m going to keep playing it for now. I really like it so far. though if you have a 3DS and don’t have Kid Icarus yet I would suggest you get it first.
EDIT: If you were wondering, yes, this game is exactly like the PS2 game. Also the game doesn’t have much 3D in it either.
That is all.
