I got a gift card to EB for Xmas and I'm trying to decide whether to pick up Eternal Sonata or The World Ends With You.

I know there are people on this board that loathe Eternal Sonata, so I figured I'd take a pseudo poll and see what people thought.

Suggestions?

To be honest both games aren't exactly blockbuster titles.

TWEWY is a bit lackluster overall but it's a very unique and fun RPG unlike any other. The music is really fantastic too. Eternal Sonata is also pretty fun, with great Motoi Sakuraba themes.

Both games have kind of simplistic gameplay that never evolves too much. I would recommend TWEWY over Eternal Sonata just because it's a bit more interesting overall. There are better games out there for you to get though. Lost Odyssey or Vesperia on the 360, and a bunch of others on the DS.

Thoren's fucking insane.

Get The World Ends With You. Infinitely a better game than the royal stink Eternal Sonata becomes at hour 15.

I've heard nothing but good abotu TWEWY and mixed about ES. My friend got it and she's actually put down Persona 4 to play it instead, she loves it.....so who knows.

Well, I haven't played either, but people praise TWEWY for it's originality, style, story, and battle system. ES's only praise is the graphics....

Already got it for Christmas.

In the end, I got nothing because the store looked like it had been raped by goats and I literally could only get 2 feet into the store because of the line. I couldn't be bothered dealing with that.

Hmm... A lackluster generic look-alike of a similarly lackluster series(Tales of) or one of the best handheld games ever... Tough choice, eh?

GO BUY TWEWY!!! NOW!!! :)))

That's pretty harsh, given how much I detest the Tales games.

Pick up Sonic The Hedgehog 06 if you're looking for laughs, haha. I played Eternal Sonata and loved it, but that's probably I got a kick out of the naming of everything. Music Nerd Reporting :P

I haven't played Eternal Sonata, but I'd say go with TWEWY. It's badass. It is the future. At least, it should be, but sadly it probably won't be.

I think I'm almost finished with The World Ends With You. I'm stuck at a boss, and its proving to be difficult, so I stopped playing. It's a pretty decent game. I find it more repetitive than other RPGs. Funny you mention Eternal Sonata, I'm going to start that next, but I'm playing the Xbox 360 version. I would buy Eternal Sonata.
