Vesperia is, first and foremost, a true epic. Every time I thought I was finished with the game, there was another set of quests just as long as most entire games. It's sheer depth is what lends it a high score. The combat system is not very intuitive, and a little slow at times, but still fun. Also, the first part of the game feels like your being condescended, it's overly simplistic at the get-go. I highly recommend this game for any RPG lovers, it will keep you entertained for a good long time.
Tales of Vesperia is a solid RPG all around. The story is a easy to follow one along with very good character profiles. I do love that alot of the game has speaking characters as I'm not a huge fan of reading everything. The only thing I find a little tough about the game is the battle systems such as your special moves. It's somewhat confusing but all in all it's good. It also seems that you won't be able to unlock all the abilities just running through the base storyline. The game is very easy to figure out when it comes to puzzles such as unlocking doors and progressing the storyline. If your looking for a good RPG with outstanding graphics, fun characters, a twisting storyline then this game is for you. L8ers.

I have always been a fan of the tales of series owning tod, tod2, totb, etc and Tales of Vesperia is no disappointment. Great visuals, addictive battles, and tons of side-quests make one great RPG. The only downside to this game is some of the character designs, mainly Estelle. If u can get over one annoying character then this RPG is for you.
