I enjoyed the gameplay and battle style, but the cooking - yes, the cooking - put me off. I preferred the cooking style/layout from Tales of Symphonia.

I've been a Tales fan since I was a kid, so I had high hopes for Tales of Graces. However, I must honestly say that it's probably the worst Tales game. The plot was laughable, and the only character I found interesting was Sophie.

Skip Graces, play the other Tales games.

Honestly, while I didn't think it was bad, I didn't think it was great either- I thought it was just okay.

While the graphics and gameplay were good, I think the major downfall was the story. Symphonia, Legendia, Abyss, and Vesperia had GREAT stories, ones that made the FF games that are constantly praised (7, 8, & 10) look shallow in comparison. The story really wasn't anything special. The characters weren't anything great either. I'll admit that I did really like Sophie, but Asbel and Richard were kind of "eh". Which is extremely disappointing for me, because I usually always liked the Tales protagonists. Yuri, Lloyd, and Luke are some of my favorite video game characters, so it disappointed me when I saw that Asbel was just so... so BLAND. He might as well should have been named "Gary Stu".

However, it is fun to play- while it's not a masterpiece by any means, it's still a fun game- I don't regret all the hours I wasted on Graces. I just wouldn't pick Graces as game to be introduced to the Tales series. Symphonia, Abyss, or Vesperia would be a better choice as someone's first Tales game.

I got the game and I found it a big let down the characters are really boring so much so you can't even get into the story and the gameplay is somewhat boring being an action RPG and the graphics are also very bad all in all I do not have one good thing to say about the game. I am going to sell my copy once the game becomes a collectible.

Yeah i've been hearing that people didn't like it. It did get a reasonable score.

Maybe it was just a bad game in the series but I am still kind of skeptical.

I thought the graphics were pretty good. No, it's not FF13, but I thought the graphics were cute.

I did not expect it to FF XIII quality graphics but I found the graphics bad compared to a lot of PS3 games but that's just my opinion so no offence or anything.

Well, considering that Graces was originally for the Wii, of course the graphics aren't going to be as top notch as some other PS3 games.

I preferred it to Vesperia, though those are the only two I've played I'd certainly welcome the next installment.

It's nowhere near as good as previous Tales games, particularly Symphonia, Abyss, Vesperia, Legendia....you know what, I would consider it one of the worst Tales games they've put out. I'm waiting on tenterhooks for Xillia next year now.
