Tales of Phantasia Game Discussion
 
Another RPG game, this one from Super Famicon(SNES of Japan). What i like about this one was the character actually "talked". Yep, I believe this was the first console RPG with "voice" features. Also, the characters have common anime character expressions such as huge sweat drops, and distorted facial expression. Overall a very interesting anime and in my opinion, it was a breakthrough in console RPGs with it's sound feature and superb graphics.

here's a link to some of the image galleries of characters. Very cool anime type rpg.

I loved everything about the game. The music, characters, storyline, and especially the battle system, the beginnings of the greatest battle system ever invented for an RPG.

None of that 'press a button and watch', it's like 4 player Street Fighter!

The Tales series has the one most important thing that most RPGs lack: Character Interaction. Not just character interaction during plot events, but interaction everywhere. It draws you in, getting you to know the characters better, brings them to life, and by the end of the game, makes you truely care about them.

Plus Arche is in it :)

SoulDrinker 2004-03-20 10:42

this game is great and if u can find the combo pad and find all the button combos it can be like street fighter. is anyone else getting the gamecube sequel?

Village Idiot 2004-03-20 14:06

Yes, my avatar is Arche.

It's a ToP figurine :D

And the new GC game isn't a sequel, it's a prequel.

DekaMaster 2004-03-20 18:54

I hope the ToP port to GBA makes it out in the us. The fantranslation of the Sfam game was a joke. "I bet she fucks like a tiger" gimme a break.

Loved the SNES version, played it all day.
And now, every now and then :love:

Hope that the GBA version has some extra's :D

Can't wait till the OVA's are released this year :love:

StarCreator 2004-03-20 21:37

I played both an incomplete translation (years before any were available publically) of the SNES ver, and the PSX ver. Both were quite enjoyable, but I never finished either version.

You all should try, tales of eternia. AKA: tales of destiny 2.

No you donít. lol The GBA version of ToP is worse then the SFAM version, and the music is a complete joke! Namco should fall over and die for releasing such a lousy port.

I agree, DeJapís translation of the game is a joke. I bought the PSX version of ToP, and it excels at nearly everything the original version was good at (save the instrument sets used on the music). There is also an ongoing fan translation of the PSX version of ToP underway, although progress is incredibly slow since there is very little experience from anyone in hacking Playstation games.

TheXev, you shouldn't forget that Dejap isn't making you pay for the translation so I guess you shouldn't even say such a thing.
As for the game, I found it a little too easy, even the last boss didn't give me any problem but it's still a great game with nice original fights ^^

Why not? They released it to the public. We all know as fansubbers that we are all open to such things. And it is a joke when more than half the dejap translation is made up.

Thany 2004-03-22 00:44

I think you mistaken what I said : I said that there is no need to bash a translation group even if their work isn't perfect, they do it freely so you should be happy they do it ^^

No you shouldn't. However, do realize that the game translation community has a MUCH SMALLER translator pool than the fansub community, even several years ago. Games are generally harder to translate than anime since they are generally quite long and most of them do not have voices AND people have to look up all the kanji to create tables for them (unless it's a PC game, in which case this isn't usually the case). So basically, imagine the fansub community with a few good groups, a good number of wanna-bes, and about 5 active-duty translators to go around for everyone. Add in more whiny fanboys and you've got the scene about right :) I mean, digisubs were pretty terrible back in the early days too ;)

How many of you have played this amazing RPG for the SNES? It was remade for Playstation, but it was a slightly different version. Anyway, I think this is one of the greatest of the golden age of RPGs, up there with FFVI and Chrono Trigger -- it would have been huge if it had hit the US during that period.

Dhaos, Cless, Chester, Arche, Klarth, Mint... really good stuff.

Flash_Squirrel 2004-04-11 15:07

ToP IS the best RPG ever made. No wonders people still talk about it.

RichMan 2004-04-11 16:48

Yeah I loved that game. I wish they made an american version of it for PSX.

Kaka 2004-04-11 18:22

I should get the ps ver someday.....
but I still have ToD2 (not ToE.....) sitting in my drawer since I got it few weeks ago
gotta play ToD first >_<

daliinn 2004-04-11 18:59

hah, i just started playing this game around the time this thread was created. pretty good so far but im having a little trouble learning the attack controls. is there a specific way to do air or uppercut moves or is it strictly random?
