Synopsis: Settle in for the story of Luke fon Fabre and his adventures in Tales of the Abyss, a magical story about the value of friendship and sacrifice. As Luke, you begin inside your family's manor, a quiet character shut away from the world due to a terrible case of amnesia caused by the shock of being kidnapped years ago. Shattering your solitude, a girl named Tear breaks into the castle and the two of you are transported far from the safety of your family home. Luke can roam freely through his environment, uncovering treasure chests, magical items, and enemies to increase his skills as a fighter, and sorcerer. The land is full of subatomic particles created from such elements as light, dark, air, earth, fire, and water called Fonons, and the protagonist can master the make-up of a particular area by using attacks that are based in one of six particles. Luke can charge-up normal actions to become super assaults by using moves that require the primary Fonon found within that environment. As in other RPG titles, Luke will meet people along the way including Mieu and Jade who will join your party and provide back-up during squabbles. The game gives you the option of controlling Luke directly or allowing the computer to fight for you. Elemental attacks can be made stronger by using fon slot chambers to add special effects such as power, damage, and health increases, and as your characters level up, you can distribute over 80 unlockable attributes to 20 different capacity cores that affect Luke and members of his posse in such ways as physical, fonic attack, and defense points. As you journey through your main quest of uncovering Luke's affiliation with the Order of Lorelei, there will be side activities to break up gameplay that include cooking tasty meals to increase attributes and unlocking costumes such as swimsuits and formal wear. You can journey alone or invite up to three friends to play along as characters in Luke's party. ~ Gracie Leach, All Game Guide
