The Tales game seem to be getting better and better in terms of their voice work. Tales of Symphonia for the GameCube is the game I think of when I want to make an example of a Japanese RPG that has good, if not excellent, English voice work. The dialog is good, the voice actors are all excellent, and the story is great.
Tales of Vesperia is continuing this tradition. I wasn't sure if I liked Estellise's voice at the beginning, but it quickly grew on me. Yuri's voice is good, if a bit low-key. So far, no one's voice work has made me wince.
My only complaint so far is that the boss fights are far and away more difficult than the standard fights. That means you might be doing awesome against normal enemies and then get smashed fighting a boss, with no previous indication that you were doing badly.
With classic Tales story-telling and a revamped 3D Linear Battle System, Tales of Vesperia is a great game and worth buying if you enjoy Japanese RPGs.
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.
