Tales of Symphonia is easily one of the best games I’ve ever played. I recommend it to any JRPG fan, whether you play the Steam port, Tales of Symphonia Chronicles on the PS3, or the original Gamecube version.
But if you want to give it a try first, you’re in luck. Steam is holding a free Tales of Symphonia weekend, which means you can download Tales of Symphonia from Steam and play it for free from now until Sunday at 1 PM Pacific Time / 4 PM Eastern Time.
It is also discounted, so if you enjoy playing it and want to buy the game, you can get it for $6.79.
When Tales of Symphonia first launched on Steam, it was riddled with issues, from major technical problems to bizarre mistakes. Since then, most of those problems have been cleared up. If you care about 60 FPS, it still isn’t on par with the Gamecube version, but it’s as good as if not better than the PS3 version.
Give Tales of Symphonia a try this weekend!
(On a different note, I planned to discuss Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice today. Expect that post next week. Meanwhile, Color Splash is out–officially, not accidentally–today. I’m still on the fence about it.)---
