This is the first game that I have played in the Tales series. As with most games there are a few things I would change, but overall I LOVED this game. To get %100 completion, there is a LOT to do! The storyline in this game is superb, it keeps you interested and takes many twists that you would not expect. If you are a fan of Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts... etc. Then you would really enjoy this game.
Tales of Vesperia is a RPG from Namco and its one done right. Nice story, multiple characters(playable and to talk to), and a Free-Flow battle system that is often used in Action Games. My only negative about the game is having to sit through cut scenes that you must keep going(pressing A). Otherwise, a solid game that should have a sequel.
The Tales series has been a favorite of JRPG fans for years, and Tales continues to offer an excellent JRPG experience, and offers some new twists.
Overall, this game is great. The battle system has been tweaked a little and is actually pretty deep. You have the ability to do basic attacks, arte attacks, and mystic arte attacks. The battle system is a live real time battle system.
The inventory system is mostly easy to navigate. Like all JRPG's there are a lot of menus to navigate, but once you learn it it's not to bad to get around.
The graphics are beautiful, and is a pleasure to look at.
Some things I don't like. I don't like the mode of transportation at first. I wish there was some sort of teleportation. It can be time consuming going back and forth to locations. Also, the story is nothing special. Basically, you and a group of heros are trying to save the world.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes JRPG's and is looking for a 60+ hour experience.
