Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology (Namco Bandai)

 

Honestly, Radiant Mythology does absolutely nothing new--especially if you've played Tales games before--but we found ourselves having a lot of fun hacking and slashing away through beautiful dungeons. Also, the story is more than serviceable, thanks...

Graphics are great, crossover characters, great cooking and forging systems

Nothing revolutionary, and if you're not into questing RPGs, you'll definitely want to look elsewhere

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology

 

Sometimes I wonder if the Tales series of RPGs from Namco-Bandai was intended as a bedtime tale or a sleep aid; all I know for sure is, they're exciting enough to put me to sleep fairly swiftly every time I play them.

Y A W N * Tell me a Tale to put me to sleep, please. Works every time

There’s simply no freshness, no originality, no sense of wonder to this series anymore. In dire need of reinvention

Was anyone awake when they made Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology? Was anyone awake five minutes into playing it?

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology

 

Tales fans rejoice, everyone else act mildly amused!

Graphically the game is pretty impressive on the PSP, and while it obviously takes a step back from recent PS2 entries, it manages to hold its own against other RPG's on the system fairly well. The anime style simplifies the character designs, but the...

Tales Of The World: Radiant Mythology

 

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology is an original game created in the world of Namco's Tales of ... role-playing game franchise. It is an exclusive for the PlayStation Portable. The game ties into the franchise by incorporating characters from Tales...

Overall, Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology is an enjoyable RPG. The story driving the game isn't anything to get worked up about, but the high customization of character development, crafting, party setup, etc. offers hours of game play, as well it...

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology

 

Namco's Tales series has never had the acclaim of Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest, but fans are just as devoted. So, when the company announced Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology, it seemed like a promising concept: put all the series' best characters...

Quest for the .

J-RPG nostalgia wave; Crafting is actually kinda fun

J-RPG cliché undertow; Fetch quests still aren't; Class up = level 1 all over

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology Review

 

Games in the Tales series have been around for a long, long time. We've seen them appear on the SNES, the Playstation, the PS2 and the GameCube. Some of the installments have been great fun while others have flopped. However, there've been many more...

In all, Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology really isn't a bad game. If you're a fan of the Tales series, you're going to find a lot to like here, particularly a fun combat system and characters you've grown to love over the years. However, non-fans...

Tales of the Fetch Quest

 

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology is neither radiant nor my-thological, but it is almost pure fanservice. Shame it's not an actual Tales game, though.

Yes, there is something approaching a story, but it's handed out so slowly that all the busy work in between becomes the focal point rather than in exploring some of the characters. Worse still, because "you" in the game have no real back story nor an...

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology

 

Namco Bandai wants you to hack, slash, cook, and sew as you try to defeat the Ultimate Evil.

In-depth storyline; lots of character customization; the various crafting skills are a kick

Play can get repetitive; inability to stack quests; inventory management can be a chore

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology Sony PSP Review

 

The neatest aspect of being born from the World Tree is that you're free to customize your character in any way you see fit before you start out on your adventure. The customization is fun, and there's a pretty large swath of anime flavored styles to...

Tales hero cameos all around; Great character customizatin and unique items; A brilliantly streamlined design

Fetch quests and simple monster hunts make up for most of the gameplay experience; There is a cohesive story to all of this, but it's not very important

The first thing that struck me about Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology is that this game looked beautiful. The characters, be they classic Tales veterans returning for a cameo role, or the unique character created by the player, all look unique and...
