Now, this doesn’t make the game unplayable but it’s sad to see that something could have been perfect but actually wasn’t for some sentimental reason. Otherwise, Tales of Vesperia is the perfect game to get players acquainted with the Tales franchise and Japanese RPG. And surely this popular video game series got even more fans thanks to re-publishing of this legendary title.
Fans of the series will (and should) relish the chance to finally play this entry in the series, and there’s enough Tales goodness here to make it worth the wait. The story is involving, the acting is top-notch, and the remastered graphics are colorful and (mostly) crisp. However, these may not be at a level that will win over anyone who’s never played a Tales game before.
Tales of Vesperia is the first Tales game that I’ve put significant time into since the original PlayStation, and frankly the Switch has made it so I can’t finish super-long RPGs without some sort of portability. If you’re looking for a jumping-in point for the series, Vesperia is the way to go.
