    Tales of Arise is so well done with the story, graphics, battle system, music, characters and voice cast that it is a must-play for anyone. Even if you aren’t normally a big fan of role-playing games the story is so compelling there is a lot to love here.

    Tales of Arise is a genuinely exceptional JRPG that does little wrong. The reworked combat mechanics aren't perfect, but in the grand scheme of things that doesn't matter. Its storytelling, character development, visuals, accessibility, and PC version quality have all been produced to world-class standards. Bandai Namco should be proud, and fans should be thrilled.

    Tales of Arise sets a new gold standard for traditional action JRPGs. This stylized adventure's presentation and lavish production is a treat for anime fans and RPG enthusiasts, and it brings new life to the long-running Tales series.

    Tales of Arise brilliantly succeeds in breathing new life into the Tales Of saga. With its universe and its successful characters, the title delivers a striking adventure that takes advantage of superb environments thanks to a unique graphic rendering. The fights are not left out either since they show great intensity with always more spectacle, sometimes even if it means confusing the action. If we can blame it for his clipping, its talkative side, or its redundant bestiary, we still salute its many qualities which suggest good for the future of the series.

    The Tales series makes a triumphant return with Arise, a game that delivers excellent, highly polished RPG action that stands above its predecessors. Despite being a RPG, Tales of Arise features a rich combat system that makes the title contend with some of the best action games released this year.

    Tales of Arise is a strong addition to the "Tales of..." series that will surely satisfy those looking for a worthwhile JRPG experience. However, we must point out the timidity shown in not innovating and limiting itself to a standard scenario and a predictable structure. Perhaps that's why people love the series: because they know what to expect. So, if you do too, feel free to invest in Tales of Arise.

    It’s not an absolute slam dunk for the return of the Tales series, but it’s a solidly-crafted JRPG with a great battle system and fabulous environments to adventure through. It’s a shame the dialogue and story don’t match the stellar work done elsewhere, but on the whole it’s still a trip well worth taking.

Бои не успевают надоедать так как постоянно идут вставки с сюжетом и раскрытием главных героев. Главные герои харизматичны, к каждому проникаешься и сопереживаешь. Женские персонажи в игре как на подбор : красивые, милые, сильные личности, при этом не жирные и не похожи на огров. Отсутствие геев, негров , трансгендеров, жирных страшных феминисток и прочих атрибутов дерьма которым нас кормят западные игры, пытаясь усидеть на всех стульях и запихивая повестку куда только можно. Огромное уважение японцам что не прогибаются и делают игры как считают нужным! Доволен на 12/10, наиграл 30 часов и надеюсь дальше меня ждет столько же! Expand

    Having played a good number of Tales games this is the best one since Vesperia.
    The characters are great as is the interaction between them.
    Having played a good number of Tales games this is the best one since Vesperia.
    The characters are great as is the interaction between them. The two main characters for me have the best writing and are some of the best characters in any game ever.
    The action is fast paced and simple but with a high celling if you spend the time to master it. Last mentions that the soundtrack is awesome and so are the visuals!
    Buy this game, no excuses!

Its really just get from A to B that is just such a slog and side missions are not worth doing. Expand
