Product Description

Set two years after the events of the award-winning Tales of Symphonia, Dawn of the New World introduces two new young heroes, Emil Castagnier and Marta Lualdi, as they journey to find the cause of a catastrophic change in their world. Crossing paths with fan-favourite characters such as Lloyd, Colette and Sheena, the brave adventurers will also encounter a spirit known as Ratatosk, lord of all monsters, who will grant them new and incredible powers over the fearsome creatures that now roam the land.

Debuting a major new gameplay system for the Tales series, Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World allows players to capture more than 200 unique monsters that they face in battle. Players can feed these monsters to make them more powerful, and even evolve them into several new fearsome forms. Up to three monsters can be taken into any battle situation, offering unique benefits against enemies and imparting new strategic depth to the Tales series’ lauded real-time battle system.

Brand new content exclusive to the PAL version of Tales of Symphonia™: Dawn of the New World include the Gallery Mode and head accessories. Unlocked once the game is completed, the Gallery Mode includes a Skits Library containing viewable skits of the gameplay, and an Image Library with a wealth of design sketches, illustrations, pack art and more. The game also contains a number of new themed masks and head accessories for Emil and Marta which are exclusive to the PAL version and allow players to customise the characters in battle and will also add new special effects during fights.

Featuring a massive cast of returning playable characters, Dawn of the New World offers complete freedom in creating a custom party that best suits the needs of each enemy encounter. Up to four players can enjoy the full game together cooperatively, working together to strategically complete each battle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable battles, story only ok. 9 Sep 2010

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you like the Tales games and played Tales of Symphonia then you'll probably forgive this game its flaws, but still be a little disappointed.

The battle system is great fun. Meeting the old cast is quite entertaining too. The story isn't so bad, but it doesn't really stand up to the previous game, and it kind of makes you wonder why they bothered making a sequel instead of a completely new world. The new characters say and do pretty embarrassing things a lot of the time too.

I was really disappointed until I made it through the first couple of villages, then it really started to grow on me. The old cast and hearing the old battle music in some areas kept me entertained. And the battle system really is great fun.

I enjoyed it after the first few hours, but I'm aware its not the best that Tales have to offer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hrm 4 Jan 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Being a big fan of the original, I was excited to receive this game for Christmas.

I have several irks with the game, which I will outline before I give the good things with it.

1) it's far too short. Far. Too. Short. The gamecube version was spanned over two worlds, Tethe'alla and Sylvarant. And since this is spanned over the same two worlds merged, you'd expect it to be big? Wrong. 20 hours into the game and I'm on the last 'quest' of chapter 7 of 8 chapters. Sure, you can do the mini-quests with the Katz Guild, but it's just NOT the same.

2)the storyline is a little lame and in a way, doesn't fit in with the original storyline.

3) the bosses are a LOT easier. I mean ALOT. I remember spending frustrating hours with the original trying to get the best strategies to defeat Yggdrasill. But in this, it's a little easy to beat.

Overall, I think it's a game that's suitable for the casual gamer and not the hard-core rpg. I'm not sure if I'd play it again because of the short play life, but I'd definately recommend it if you like rpgs

3.0 out of 5 stars The Worst 3D Tales Game Ever Made. 19 Sep 2011
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Basically if you're a fan of Tales of Symphonia, you'l notice within moments of starting the game that this was made on a very small budget, and does its job in a limited way.

Basically this takes place after the events of Tales of Symphonia, and disgards all the main characters and introduces two new ones, Emil and Marta as the protagonists, and some random antagonists you get to know during the game.

Problem here being, the previous games characters are all but useless, Lloyd, Genis, Collette etc, you can't really do anything with them, they join and leave your party and will, you can't change their equipment, they're like there to make fans of the previous games happy.

The graphics are a major downgrade compared to Tales of Symphonia, gone is that quirky style that made the Gamecube game so pleasing on the eye, what we get is a generic 3D JRPG graphic set.

The story is on the weak side, all things considered, if you've played just one 1 Tales game you may enjoy, if you've played better(Tales of Vesperia, Abyss, Legendia, Symphonia, Grades, Radiant Mythology, Phantasia, Eternia etc) Its pretty bad.

The Hi-Ougis(Special attacks) are pretty poor, like they were made on a shoe string time table, compare these with say Vesperias, or Graces and you'l see.

All in all I would call this the worst 3D tales game ever made, and to top it off, it wasn't made by the same people that did Symphonia(On Gamecube) it was a different studio within Namco as they were doing Vesperia at the time.

The game itself is awesome, one of the most amazing RPGs for the Wii.
As i played through this before (again and again and again) i just wanted it for my Collection (and to Homebrew my vWii^^) and to play through it one more time (and again and again).

Bottomline: It's epic, if you're a fan of RPG with deep storylines, you don't wanna miss out on this!

Fun, fast and definitely funny this is truly a masterpiece. With a wide range of diverse and loveable characters and a captivating storyline, you definitely don't want to miss out on Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. A great follow up from the original.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great follow up, to best ever Gamecube game 28 Nov 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ill start off with a big point. If you haven't played the original, Tales of Symphonia on Gamecube, you might not understand the complete storyline as it is a direct follow up set 2 years after the first events. There is a short explanation at the beginning of the game so if you haven't played the first game, you get what basically happened and where the world stands now. It has an immediate appeal to people who loved the first game as you want to know why Lloyd is apprently attacking towns and killing people for no reason, whereas he was the hero and main good guy in the original. On the note of Lloyd, this game has all of the original characters returning in some aspect in this game, as they join your party at certain times on your quest as you hunt down Lloyd to find out the truth. the main character you control this time is Emil, a timid boy, who becomes a Knight of Ratatosk to protect Marta who has the Core of Ratatosk emblazed in her head. The story being that you need to collect all of the Centurion Cores to restore the balance of monsters and mana in the world by reawaking all of the Centurions [monsters who control other monsters of the same element] and thus reawaking the leader of all monsters Ratatosk to restore normality to the world. Lloyd is apparently collecting the cores for his own personal use, whilst there is another group of people collecting the cores too. I dont want to give away the story so i will just highlight some points of mine:

Good points:
+Plays similarly so you can get straight into it easily if you know the last game or other Tales of games. Also easy to learn if your new because of in game help at the start of the game.
+Exploring some original areas 2 years after the first game to see how they have changed.
+Returning characters!
