An RPG from Namco-Tales studio (and 8th in the main series) with great characters (both heroes and villains), an intriguing story (not a predictable RPG), a smooth battle system (multilinear with a stable camera so that your friends can actually see themselves in multiplayer) and general awesomeness. Looks nice, plays well, sounds good, bundled together makes it one of the best RPGs of the year.
The Tales series isn't just about Tales of Symphonia. Games like Tales of the Abyss and Tales of Destiny are way better, and highlight how good the series can be.
