Tales of Berseria - Teaser Trailer
Feb 10, 2017Tales of Berseria is a direct response to all the fans of the series that felt disappointed with the lackluster Zestiria. With a much more interesting overarching story, a stellar cast of characters and many refinements to the gameplay, Tales of Berseria is easily the best Tales game since Vesperia.
Jan 24, 2017Tales of Berseria feels like a Tales game made just for me. There’s so many games in the series now, and I’ll never play them all, but the characters and the narrative and the combat mechanics of Berseria just click with all of my tastes so well. For some, the lack of gameplay innovation might be a turn off, but for me, a classic Tales gameplay system combined with a unique narrative led to a fantastic experience. Fans both new and old would be doing a disservice to themselves if they didn’t check this game out.
Feb 23, 2017Tales of Berseria is an excellent game despite its flaws. The cast of characters shine in their own right and are easily some of the most memorable in the series and the combat additions coupled with the engaging plot makes this a game every JRPG fan should play.
Mar 17, 2017Tales of Berseria is too archaic in its game design and visuals to be a mass-appeal JPRG. Still, if you're looking to play a modern representative of this genre, keep in mind that you can easily find a better-looking game, but you won't have as much fun playing it as this one.
Game World Navigator MagazineMar 1, 2017In Tales of Berseria you can find every single thing which caused “traditional” JRPG to fall out of favor: world is almost empty, balance is non-existent and instead of truly intricate story we have a cheap, unbelievable drama. Sure, most of these can be explained away as a JRPG tradition – but that doesn’t mean we didn’t get tired of them. [Issue #217, p.76]

Jan 26, 2017Berseria is about what you always wanted the heroes to do to get out of a situation easily. Who cares about valiantly introducing yourselfBerseria is about what you always wanted the heroes to do to get out of a situation easily. Who cares about valiantly introducing yourself before a duel? Just attack! Need to get some fools off your trail? Let some worthless people become fodder for your assailants' blades. Velvet, the protagonist, will use any tool at her disposal.
Battles are fierce and have an interesting ebb-and-flow. You expend and extract souls from your enemies, allowing you to extend your combo lengths. Anybody who appreciates brawler and fighting games will feel at home, even if you don't normally play RPGs. While it's not quite as fighter-style as Zestiria's combat, it's still engaging and requires you to pay attention. Playing on Hard from the get-go felt natural and enjoyable.
If you didn't play the game before, Zestiria, you shouldn't be lost -- you'll miss out on some of the clever and/or harrowing realizations that come with having experienced Zestiria, but Berseria takes place a few hundred years prior. Strangely though, it does feel more like a sequel than a prequel. While chronologically this happened first, it's so connected that the pacing of the game's reveals is going to resonate more with Zestiria players than if you played them the other way around. Long story short, Zestiria showed you the most hopeful parts of this world's story. Berseria shows you its direst.
One of my only complaints are that while the main characters and the villains have great voice acting, some NPCs sound idiotic. My other is that dungeons tend to be lack-luster and kinda overused. Overall, I'd recommend this to anybody who likes jRPGS -- this isn't a Tales game, it's just a good jRPG with apple gels.… Expand
Mar 12, 2017Tales of Berseria si attesta come un ottimo capitolo della serie Tales of che cerca di implementare da una parte una narrativa diversa che ciTales of Berseria si attesta come un ottimo capitolo della serie Tales of che cerca di implementare da una parte una narrativa diversa che ci mostra quanto il mondo di Westland sia più complesso di quanto si immagini, creando quell’atmosfera oscura e angosciante che ci farà riflettere sull’intera esperienza di gioco. Dall’altra abbiamo un sistema di combattimento funzionale e fluido che però non si basa soltanto sul mero attaccare. Lo stesso non si può dire per i dungeon che risultano essere piatti e privi di profondità, senza tentare di proporre qualcosa di nuovo. Si tratta di un gioco riuscito bene ma non perfettamente che ha bisogno di cambiare la sua struttura in alcuni ambiti, giusto per non rimanere fermi nei propri errori.
Si spera che nel prossimo capitolo, che risulterà essere il primo pensato e sviluppato per piattaforma di questa generazione, sappia innovare e sviluppare al meglio la grande potenzialità che questa serie ha da offrire.

Xillia 2 and Zesteria seemed to be a little too bland for my tastes. But other than that, I've played most of the major 3D Tales games.
-To put simply, the combat in this game is a bit too easy. The best strategy by far is to just button mash all four of the face buttons at once. (I guess I should mention that this game is best played with a gamepad.)
-Underwhelming. The fact that this game came out on the PS3 in Japan isn't enough to defend its bland graphics. On the bright side, I was easily able to get this game running at 4k 60fps at max settings, something that I can't say with most AAA games.
-Definitely one of the more interesting stories presented in the Tales series in a while. Funnily enough, Velvet, the protagonist, is actually the least interesting character in the story, however her companions more than make up for it.
-Forgettable; normally music in the Tale's series would get stuck in my head days after playing it, however I can't say the same with Berseria. It's serviceable, but nothing more.
-Surprisingly good; Plenty of graphics options, 60 fps, 4K support, etc. Unfortunately, anything above 60 fps isn't possible, and having a controller is basically essential to playing this game. Compared to Bandi Namco's other PC ports, I was able to play the game with no tinkering of external files to get things working properly.
-I could say that Tales of Berseria is better than the past couple of games in the series, however that wouldn't be much of an achievement compared to what most people thought of Tales of Zestiria. I think that a 7/10 is about what this game deserves.… Expand

Favorite Thing: Magilou, she somehow grew on me. Probably because of how necessary she was to balance the dour Velvet.
Least Favorite Thing: The level design, especially caves, is extremely unremarkable. I got turned around a few times due to how same-ish it all is.
