One of Kemco's best.

Aside from translation issues, the story in this game is better than in most Kemco games. In particular, villains are not cookie-cutter; while they still stick to certain stereotypes, they have some depth are in some ways likeable. The plot could use some work as it sticks to the typical “defeat the evil guys” kind, but the characters really make this game worth it.

The mechanics of the game are really fun. First, being able to pick and choose your battles is always a plus. You can do as much or as little grinding as you need. (Furthermore, the game is well-balanced where excessive amounts of grinding is not needed.) One unique thing here is there are not resources like mana or cooldown systems. Instead, you have something called stamina that you use to do attacks. Stronger attacks cost more stamina. Stamina restores over time, and once it reaches its max, you can act again. It is a very cool battle system.

The only real downside to the game is its length. You can finish the game in like 6-10 hours. Still, it is preferable to spend a short time having fun rather than doing hours of grinding that artificially increase the length of the game. All in all, Symphony of the Origin is a fun game, although it is a bit pricey given its length.

Pros:
  • Good, well-developed characters.
  • Unique stamina system for battles.
  • Ability to avoid monsters.
  • Good music.
  • Excessive grinding is not needed for normal difficulty.
Cons:
  • Generic plot.
  • Very short game. (6-10 hours)
  • Some translation issues.

My Favorite Kemco Game EVER!!!

Seriously, I don’t know why but I just LOVE this game. The story is good, although somewhat cheesy (and the dialogue often seems dis-connected), but the graphics, music, and menus are awesome, and the boss battles are really cool! It’s another short game (about 8-10 hours), but there’s a lot of bonus material if you’re willing to talk to EVERYONE in the game and do a little searching. There’s no real “surprises” in the story, but there are some points that are pretty emotional.

Pros:
  • Awesome battle graphics
  • Fun storyline
  • Enemies are visible and can sometimes be avoided
Cons:
  • Dialogue is sometimes just "strange"
  • No Sequel :(
