Not quite sure I understand what you mean by "Tales meets FFX", if anything Symphonia was one of the lightest most carefree in the series, as apposed to FFX which was forboding and series, and revolved around the themes of death and hopelessness. If anything, Abyss is far closer to FFX than Symphonia is, in terms of overall theme and seriousness. Symphonia's more like FFIX, a fun romp with some serious stuff here and there.
it reminds me it, in the basic plotline a girl who is the one that wil save everything and a guards with her... of course the personas in symphonia... was so much memorable to me... but i feel the game can develop them even more.
the thing abyss seems to do.
the game wil be good if it not resemble ethernia that all i ask for :)
(that one was need to be call "tales of disaster" it was so bad :)
(yep dude i know you saying to yourself "your english is disaster i know it :) it one of the reason i back to here. to improve.
