Tales of Graces F is the latest episode in the renowned Tales series on the current generation of consoles, and the first European appearance of the franchise on PlayStation®3. The story is set against the backdrop of three countries beset by a turbulent conflict and is founded on the ideals of "defending your convictions" and "protecting the people important to you."
For the first time in the Tales series, the combat system lets the player freely change attack style depending on the battle situation. The characters’ distinctive weapons can be swapped for different styles, and the new combat system is easier to control while simultaneously making battles more involving. The title is developed by Namco Tales Studio LTD. in Japan with the aim of bringing to life the rich depth of the evocative characters created by Mutsumi Inomata.
On a world called Ephinea, a civilization flourishes through the use of "Eleth," a substance found in a material called "Crius." Within the world, three kingdoms - Windor, Strata and Fendel - struggle for dominance. In the remote Windor town of Lhant, the eldest son of Baron Aston, a spirited and guileless boy named Asbel Lhant, enjoys the carefree days of his youth with his childhood friends and inseparable comrades. However, an event occurs that makes Asbel determined to become stronger, and so he decides to enter a training academy for knights in the kingdom’s capital.
Seven years pass. Asbel is 18 years old and striving to become a fully-fledged knight. However, he is forced to give up his dreams when his father, Aston, passes away. He cannot escape the obligation he feels to succeed his father as the Baron of Lhant.

Tales of Graces f is yet another great installment in the Tales of series. Most of the characters are quite likeable and not too annoying (except Pascal, she's very annoying) and I like the little cultural references sprinkled throughout. The good thing about these games is that they're very long with lots to do and lots of things to find and collect. The graphics don't take full advantage of the PS3's power, however the animated cut-scenes (when they do occur) are gorgeous. The battle system is a lot of fun, and there is a character that suits pretty much everyone's favourite battle style. The story is a little cliche at times, but that's just something you have to deal with when playing JRPGs.
Tales of Graces F is excellent!
Tales of Graces F is a wonderful game with a good story and interesting characters.

If you like the "Tales of" franchise, then you'll like Tales of Graces F!
I was not familiar with the Tales of series, but I really enjoyed Tales of Graces F. The game play is simple to learn but hard to totally master. The story is not extraordinary, but it is really nice. It's better than a lot of games available. It has really nice characters and level design.
The fact that Tales of Graces F is playable with 4 people locally is great, one of the features that my purchase was based on. Aside from that the game is a very good JRPG and the Customer Service from zavvi was great! Definitely recommended.
With a wide range of difficulties, beautiful colors, excellent battle system, deep story and an amazing soundtrack, the Tales of Graces F (Special Edition) game is one of my favourite RPGs for the console. Definitely in the Top-3 of the "Tales of" series, too. The original Japanese voice acting is not present in the game, but the English dub is not so bad.
A good game with lovable characters, fluid combat system and with lots of things to do and immerse you in. A sure pick for JRPG fans.
Finally Tales of Graces is one good JRPG available on the PS3.
Excellent game shipped and received within a week though I live in France !!!
Tales of Graces has always been known for its graphic style of Japanese animation and great soundtrack. The game's story is very well done, although sometimes it can be rather heavy. The soundtrack and the opening theme are extraordinary. The game play is much improved compared to other titles in the series, but neither has much variation in this regard. One aspect to highlight is the ability to play with friends, but only in battle.
I have played 60+ hours of this games and there are still things to see and experience! Not a single dull moment. Main story done, now enjoying future story arc. Please buy this game. Even if you are a little bit interested, these makers should get our money. As I said it's not so much a bargain as an investment.
This is my first game in the Tales of Graces franchise and I like it! A nice action RPG with a good visual impact. I also like the story.
Fantastic game with a brilliant battle system, highly recommended.
I have to admit, I did not know of the series before buying this one. I let myself be convinced by the reviews online. I have to say I do not regret the purchase, especially at Zavvi prices. The combat system is excellent and easy to learn, which results in very dynamic combat. The story is also very appealing and follows the heroes from childhood. The levelling up system is also very intuitive and very efficient and do not result in boring farming due to the multitude of combinations you can employ. The game is also interesting as you can transfer specific items/bonuses and get some new ones to improve the game's difficulty. A must-have game!
Tales of Graces F (Special Edition) did not disappoint. It has a very addictive combat system, which makes you want to keep playing.
Tales of Graces F game is perfect for anyone who likes JRPGs. The story is very entertaining and has a lot of funny moments. I'm enjoying every moment so far.
Tales of Graces F (Special Edition) is a great game with a great story. Finally a real RPG! I recommend it.
