Eternal Sonata

December 19, 2007

So, my wife and I have been playing Eternal Sonata off and on for a few days now, and it truly is a beautiful game. The detail is high and colours are vibrant and rich (especially on a high-definition television). The voice acting… is OK. With the exception of one or two characters, the voice talent won’t cause you to cup your hands over your ears. I find  adult voice actors who try to sound like children to be simply awful. They don’t sound like children, first of all, and their voices seem to be coated in a sugary, sweet syrup. That last comment really has more to do with the dialog in the story, which is extremely simplistic so far. We haven’t found the game to be terribly interesting or engaging, unlike Tales of Symphonia which was probably one of the best games we have ever played. We will continue playing the game until the pace picks up or it simply fails to hold our interest.
