"Regardless of the entry, the Tales of series typically features an impressive anime-esque style, resulting in an interesting, flashy, and very Japanese adventure. My time with Tales of Hearts R, however, was not very interesting. Unfortunately, this game really failed to make much of an impression on me. With the time I had, I managed to explore a desert area and encounter a large boss monster. I had taken it for granted and jumped on in to encounter what was actually the most boring boss battle I have ever fought."
