Tales of Symphonia – Consumer Guide

Jason Karney's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Fantasy Violence, Language, Suggestive Themes

Parents should be aware that there is a lot of stuff going on in this seemingly cartoon-like game. The dialog (infrequently) included words like bastard, pissed and libido. The latter was in reference to a character that is obviously a womanizer. The story features some situations that imaginative young players may find uncomfortable: innocent villagers killed, people mutated into monsters, a boy who must deal with both his adopted dad and biological father.

RPG Fans should be right at home.

Gamecube owners should give this game a try.

Voice-acting critics will find the voice-acting to be hit or miss; I found Colette particularly annoying.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers should be fine: all dialog is presented in speech bubbles onscreen, in addition to voiceovers.
