First thing I noticed about this game was the intro which shows an Anime cut scene showing all the characters in action along to a very catchy theme tune so much so I leave it a to run through before I play the game.
As a fan of the Tales series Vesperia does not disappoint at all and ticks all the boxes to be a very enjoyable game. All the characters you get and meet are very likable which is strange in most RPG's as there is normally at least one that gets on your nerves and most of the time it's the kid. Although we do have a couple of them in Vesperia they work well of each other and become likable, this is down to how well the script is written for these characters, there are lots of speaking parts and most are humours. The only thing that started to annoy me where at the end of a battle your characters will say something and this can get repetitive but thankfully they do change through the game and depending on what characters you have in your party and also can be skipped.

You play as Yuri Lowell. You're an ex-soldier, living in the lower class world. Yuri quit the Knights because he was fed up with the way laws were stopping people get their just deserves and this as you will see when the game goes on is where Yuri comes into his own and shows a darker side to him. The first character you bump into and is also your healer is Estelle who is a vital character to have in your group of 4 but her whole "I am not coming with you anymore ok I will" attitude gets old very quickly.

Some people have said the battle system is just button mashing but there is so much more to in then this especially when facing bosses and harder enemies. It's true that you would only use two attack buttons in a fight but you do need to block and watch everyone's health as you are fighting.

Pros:

+Engrossing storyline, thanks to some well developed characters
+Fun, Addictive Battle system
+Very well written dialog with a good sense of humor
+Good voice acting
+A Fairly good soundtrack
+Good looking game

Cons:

-A lot of story exposition, some of it not even necessary
-Battling can sometimes rely on button mashing over skill

The Tales series has never been too big in America, but many of the games within the series are a blessing. Tales of Vesperia is a great outing that many fans of the series may enjoy. If this is the first time you've ever played a Tales game, then Tales of Vesperia is a good game to start with.

Tales of Vesperia takes place in a world where blastia, magical properties, are used to protect the denizens from monsters. There are also knights who help out and protect the citizens of the world. You play as Yuri, a man who left the knights mainly because he didn't like how the government treated the people. Obviously, there's something else a foot. Something more that this powerful empire is hiding and as Yuri and company you're going to find out what it is.

Tales of Vesperia may not have an original storyline, but it's told very well. Much of the dialog is very well written and sprinkled with its own fluffy humor. What really helps the story standout as being something much more than it is, however, is the cast of characters. They're very well developed and as you play you'll become really attached to them. Each also has their own distinct personality to help them along and they have their own charms about them. To help character development you can also watch skits, which are basically conversations among the party and they're completely optional.

* Great story but it starts to pick up around 30+ hours.
*Despite fitting on just 1 disc this is a long game with lots of hidden stuff and bosses which you can miss if you don't have a guide but still you can just stumble upon them by chance.
* Fighting is hetic at first and you can't help but button mash for the first few hours.. later on the gameplay will evolve and become even more deeper.
* lots of weapon and armour creation as well as cooking food that increase stats etc..
* Great voice work that helps bring the characters to life.
* The skits help flesh out the characters and make them even more believable and help just create a real charm to them all. some of these skits are kinda hidden and won't appear until you meet certain criteria.
* music is acceptable... there are some really nice music tracks but overall I just find it ok.
* graphically there are some really nice wow moments but overall while not visually amazing it has a real nice unique anime charm and there are some great anime cut scenes.
* deep character customisation depending on what skills you learn.
* a real lengthy Japanese RPG which has quite a deep battle system. There are lots of hidden stuff to discover which you will probably not find all on first play through. the hidden stuff should definitely satisfy the hardcore RPG gamer. To find everything will take you over 100 hours of gameplay.
* world map you can save just about anywhere and go almost anywhere except up mountains. there are also hidden places for you to undiscover as well as harvest rare items for creation later on.
* dungeons and towns you can only save when you get to save points.
* quite a few mini games integrated into the game.
* lots of in-game terminology which can confuse you.
