Awesome gameplay, bad story and character development, worth the money.

Summary: I think the best of this game is gameplay, which allows you to feel as if you were really travelling in ToV's world, awesome graffics and a nice soundtrack, also, time passes and there's rain in some towns; everything is so lively! I recommend this game for those who want to live an adventure, and do not search a good story, because of the lack of character development, specially the protagonist, who is nothing but a "perfect guy", I didn't liked him at all, and I found...
Summary: If you played Tales of Symphonia for the GameCube or the Second one for the Wii, then I would recommend playing this one. Its basically a re-skinned version of that game but with a new story, new setting and a new set of character that you will absolutely fall in love with, I mean who can resist a Dog that not only wears an Eye Patch and smokes a 3 foot pipe, but a Dog that wears an Eye Patch and smokes a 3 foot pipe that you can play as!!!
One of the best JRPGs during the earlier part of the 7th gen.

Summary: Tales of Vesperia was a delightful experience for me and during the early part of the 7th gen when there wasn't many great JRPGs around,Tales of Vesperia was a joy to play. The story for the game is set in a fantasy world where a kingdom is surrounded by some sort of barrier powered by some ancient energy source called 'blastia' that is supposedly used to protect it from monsters because the world is filled with countless dangerous monsters that like to attack people and...
Summary: I BOUGHT THIS ITEM FOR MY DAUGHTER WHO SUFFERS FROM AUTISM. SHE RECEIVED IT IN RECORD TIME. AFTER GETTING IT SHE SAID SHE LOVED IT AND IS ENJOYING PLAYING IT. ANY THING THAT MAKES MY DAUGHTER HAPPY, MAKES ME HAPPY. YES I WOULD RECONMENT THIS ITEM TO MY FRIENDS.
Summary: I've wanted this game again for a while, and I've been thoroughly enjoying it. It's a good game to pick up for someone that enjoys rpg's, especially if the 360 is your primary system. The 360 doesn't have many jrpg/rpg types of this sort on it, so if you're reading this give it a shot if the price is low enough. This particular game doesn't have many copies in circulation, so it's hard to come by cheap.
Summary: The Tales series is one that has seen a fairly large number of entries, and so by this point each entry may appear to follow a certain formula established by prior entries. While this definitely happens to be the case with Tales games, the formula that is followed isn't so engrained that there is no room for improvement between successive titles.
If You Have to Buy ONE JRPG, Tales of Vesperia is IT!

Summary: I will try to explain with as much passion as I can that whoever is even THINKING about buying ToV, do yourself a favor and BUY it. Let me explain why. The beginning of the game starts off very simple. The hero, Yuri, must go on a quest to search for something. That's what most RPG games tend to start off as.
Summary: First foray into JRPG, a bit wary b/c of the style, but the reviews are hard to ignore. It takes a bit to get into the "culture" of the anime style game if you're not familiar, but I did spend 100 hours playing it, so I must have enjoyed myself. I remember when I first heard the theme song and cringed, "I'm going to have to listen to this every time I load the game? Jeez!" Pretty soon I knew all the words and was singing it while at work.
