Tales of Phantasia is an action role playing game for the Super Nintendo.
If you’re one of those lame kiddies who think that graphics make a good RPG, well you’re going to like Tales of Phantasia. If you’re everybody else, and you know that gameplay is also important to a good RPG, well you’re going to like Tales of Phantasia. This is one of the games developed by the god-company tri-Ace, back when they still worked for Namco and stuff. They’re the same folks who made Star Ocean and Valkyrie Profile, and the same things that made those games badass are at work in this one: awesome graphics, and a kickass game to back it up, with a different and innovative combat system. If you can’t tell, I like this game a lot. Describing the battle system is difficult.. I’ve frequently heard it referred to as sort of a fighting game, but that’s completely wrong. It allows for a lot more strategy and movement than most games, but you really have to see it for yourself. A is to attack, B is to use a special technique, Y is to change your targeting, and X brings up the menu. Sure, the AI’s dumber than a rock, and it’s annoying when you’re trying to fight a Harpy and you’re just standing there slashing at air, but it’s more fun than you’re likely to have from doing something else. And that’s what’s important.
