I downloaded the demo off of PSN for this and after five minutes of being bored out of my mind turned it off. The concept just seemed incredibly stupid to me, maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance...
Then buy the Japanese version?
How is this news?
Metacritic has this listed at 73 avg, with the lowest rating being 40.
So it got one good review? o.k...
I would never think that Eternal Sonata was good just by the demo but now I at least want to rent it for a week. I don't think demos for rpg's really sell the game well...demos are better for action/sports/racing games.I downloaded the demo off of PSN for this and after five minutes of being bored out of my mind turned it off.

I just picked this up on my lunch break with one of my two free monthly blockbuster in-store rentals. This will finally give me a reason to open up that ps3 that's been sitting in my closet for 3 weeks.
This game hasn't been discussed recently. For those of you that have played through much of it, or even beat it, what are your thoughts? How many hours is a direct playthrough? I typically don't stop to do every single side mission in an rpg, but I do try some of them.
As hard as I tried, I just could not get into it. I don't know what it was. The battle system seemed too repetitive and the story wasn't that spectacular. I would have loved this game if there was more to it than what is on the screen, b/c the graphics are great. Of course that's imo.
I'd love to hear a real world take on it, I found the whole speech bubble manner of dialog super annoying in the demo. The graphics were pretty, but that's the only thing nice i had to say about the demo
