Title: Eternal Sonata (PS3)
Format: Sony PlayStation 3
Eternal Sonata is definitely something diferent: an RPG based on the music and life of Chopin. There are a lot of unique features about the game, from the near real-time combat system and its innovative use of light and dark, to the soundtrack, and chapter breaks which tell the life story of the composer.
It has a slow start, buts builds pace steadily. As the action cuts between Chopin’s death bed and his dying dream the question is asked repeatedly about which world is real, and in fact whether it matters?
Beautiful cel-shaded graphics and, unsurprisingly, an excellent soundtrack, make this one to play if you can get hold of it.
