    Es indignante que tras 1 año de espera con respecto a los japoneses y yankis nos llegue a ESPAÑA un juego sin doblar ni traducir al ESPAÑOL...

    INDIGNANTE... MUY MAL por NAMCO-BANDAI y la distribuidora ATARI. 1 AÑO localizando el juego para europa y se olvidan del tercer idioma más hablado del mundo. 1 Año para sólo sacarlo en Inglés, francés y Alemán... ¡Desde luego se han tocado bien los huevos!

    I bought this game when I first started gaming 3 years ago; after about an hour it was clear it wasn't my style, so I shelved it. Quite a few games like that in the beginning that I have come back to to clean up the Achiivements. Every other game, from Dark Souls to Quake 4, has either turned out to be a fantastic game or a servicable one....then there is this thing...

    I bought this game when I first started gaming 3 years ago; after about an hour it was clear it wasn't my style, so I shelved it. Quite a few games like that in the beginning that I have come back to to clean up the Achiivements. Every other game, from Dark Souls to Quake 4, has either turned out to be a fantastic game or a servicable one....then there is this thing...

    In the 90's, as a kid I thought JRPG's were awesome and if this game came out in the early/ mid 90's, it would have been average to good. In 2012, let alone 2015, this game is horrible rubbish unless you are a complete and utter JRPG fanboy. I can't fathom people in 2015 (which there are) suggesting the visuals in this game are stunning....even for a 2D game (how did we ever live like this???), the visuals are average at best.

    The characters - androgenous as only the Japanese can dream up....and bland, bland, bland.
    Story line - there was one? I'm serious, there is no storyline here; no idea why we're doing any of it....1 loooong fetch quest...in a very uninteresting world.
    Combat engine is great??? Compared to what from the 90s?

    I made it through about 20 hours...that I will never get back. One of the very few games I have left most of the Achievements on the board...and the only 1 that the Achievements not gotten were not multiplayer.

    Conclusion - if you are a JRPG fan, you may enjoy this 1990's game...if you aren't steer well clear.

    Si on met de côté la naiserie incommensurable de l'histoire et la stupidité effarante des dialogues et l'aspect dessin animé manga pour les 3-5 ans (assez mignon au passage -au moins pour les décors), on pourrait sans doute se laisser tenter...?

En fait non, même en faisant abstraction de ces éléments déjà abrutissants en soi, impossible d'adhérer à cette débilité à moins d'avoir la cervelle qui dégouline par les oreilles...

    Et ce n'est pas le combat en temps réel d'une nullité absolue qui va y remédier, ni l'impossibilité de contrôler la caméra comme dans un Resident Evil d'il y a 15 ans... Quant à la musique, elle finit de vous achever : ces petites ritournelles servent à faire parler les prisonniers. Un jeu pour les enfants japonais donc ou qui aurait eu mieux sa place sur les téléphones portables pour s'y endormir entre deux stations de métro, bourré de saké.

    Tales of Vesperia is a strong anime-style Japanese RPG with a wide-ranging story, compelling characters and an intense real-time battle system that keeps you on your toes.
