Tales of Vesperia review (X360)

HonestGamers
7 October 2011
  • Excerpt: to do about as good of a job in taking a lot of different components and making them simple and user-friendly as any game I've played. When you get more powerful, you'll be able to obtain a number of more powerful attacks which culminate in the godly Mystic Artes, which spell bad news for anything in their path. Or you, as bosses also start gaining them after you've gotten a ways into the game.

  • Conclusion: At the end of the day, Tales of Vesperia isn’t going to be breaking any moulds. All in all though, Tales is another notch in the creator’s belts. There’s enough here for both fans and newcomer’s alike, and it proves to be a nice alternative to the Final Fantasy franchise. However, there is a danger that the mechanics are becoming slightly out-dated, and if the series doesn’t try to keep up with the latest developments in the genre, then there’s a danger the formula could...

Tales of Vesperia Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Calling Tales of Vesperia an action/RPG would be a bit of a stretch, but the battling is devoid of the standard turn-taking that, for years, has been allowing the Japanese to eat Fritos mid-fight. You’ll want to put down the curled corn delights when fighting in Tales of Vesperia , however, as timing and move choice will affect a battle’s outcome.

Expert Review

  • Summary: Why do kids and old people in JRPGs always sound more annoying than in real life? Even though Tales of Vesperia falls into this cliche -- among others -- it overcomes the stereotype and delivers a solid, story-focused adventure. Though the story fits into the classic RPG mold, it's still respectably told and sometimes amusing. Vesperia's most impressive quality is its gorgeous visuals; the cel-shaded style tickles the eyes with its vibrant anime-inspired design.

Artful RPG has mild violence but good ethics.

Common Sense Media
10 September 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is the newest installment in a 10-game deep series. As with all the other games in this series, this game does have mild violence (swords and other weapons), mild sexual innuendo, and mild alcohol references. But ultimately it imparts good morals and ethics, along with teamwork. While there is an online component, it's basically used for uploading your battle stats to a leaderboard.
