Tales of Zestiria - Launch Trailer

Nov 5, 2015It’s got nothing on Final Fantasy at its best, but it’s still an excellent example of the genre with some fun twists on RPG traditions.
Nov 13, 2015Tales of Zestiria is an absolutely fine JRPG for its target audience. However, if you are not accustomed to this particular genre, you will find hardly anything to grab your attention.
Game World Navigator MagazineDec 9, 2015Tales of Zestiria isn’t a blockbuster and it won’t appear as a “Game of the Year” nominee, but if you like JRPGs, you’ll spend about 40 hours in it, and won’t come to regret a single one of them. [Issue#204, p.73]
Jan 25, 2016Tales of Zestiria is not a very welcoming game, and feels too bland at times, but if you’re not a JRPG connoisseur, you’ll probably enjoy it.

Oct 30, 2022My first Tale game. I wasn't expecting anything. Turned out to be amazing. I'm not a big fan of the battle system, but the story is good, theMy first Tale game. I wasn't expecting anything. Turned out to be amazing. I'm not a big fan of the battle system, but the story is good, the characters are likable, their interactions are fun, the music is excellent, which is essential for RPGs, it ranges from high beats like Zaveid's theme to soothing one like the one protected by the wind. The main game took me around 50h, been doing most sidequests I think (didn't hunt for achievements though). After the game, there is a good epilogue story for Alisha, as well as a postgame where you can go to an isle and fight monsters. This adds about 10-14h I guess. For Alisha's dungeon and the postgame, I suggest you lower the difficulty and drink a holy bottle, otherwise the battles can become tedious.
All in all a lot better than expected, and I'm looking forward to more Tales.… Expand

Videogames are meant to entertain and this is one of those few that will also amuse you despite its many flaws.
Overall it is a nice PC port but the game itself is technologically outdated. The camera is simply bad and the combat system is not for everyone. The lack of details in the scenarios break the immersion sometimes. It could have been far better with a bit more of passion and effort.… Expand
Dec 15, 2015Tales of Zestiria in all honesty, I feel is strictly for Tales fans, especially if you've played huge hits like Tales of Xillia then ZestiriaTales of Zestiria in all honesty, I feel is strictly for Tales fans, especially if you've played huge hits like Tales of Xillia then Zestiria will certainly disappoint you since its only half the game Xillia ever was. The biggest problems with ToZ are numerous such as a main character permanently leaving after about 15 hours of story through to periods when the combat system feels obviously broken.
The biggest problem with the combat system is the camera itself, fighting in a small area is a recipe for disaster since the camera will have a really hard time following the player, often not showing anything at all just the floor or the monsters without the character the player is controlling so sometimes, its just button bash and hope when these camera issues appear...which unfortunately is all too often.
Another issue it the story meanders too much, often making no real sense and is missing some vital components such as side quests - - okay, there are 'some' side quests but not on the same scale as Xillia. Plus you have some dungeons which are poorly crafted such as the terribly designed Water Trial which is one of the more frustrating puzzle dungeons I've personally played in a while. Another minor problem is the open expanses in the game are...just too open, barren and feel empty and devoid of life.
Another issue, but thats more of a personal opinion and thats Namco not releasing several DLC for the western release due to the 'usual' excuses of 'licensing', so the west misses out on some of the best looking costumes - I guess western fans should be happy that at least we have Idolmaster and Evangeline costumes! But also speaking about DLC, this game is very heavy on the DLC and its quite expensive considering - so whilst its purely cosmetic I personally feel they shouldn't be charging $10 for a set of costumes.
Whilst I think the game isn't a total loss, I can't really recommend paying full price for this game, especially if your interested in the DLC - which if you buy everything...will cost more than the base game. ToZ does have interesting and even fun moments especially with some well crafted skits but unfortunately those are not enough to warrant such high scores, at most I could say 6/10 at absolute most. Also, if your playing the PC version, using SweetFX is a must not only to remove the 30fps cap, but to add various shader effects and make the game look generally alot better.… Expand
Oct 21, 2015HORRIBLE camera controls. There's huge amounts of mouse acceleration, the camera sways like crazy. Almost unusable with m+kb.
Graphics areHORRIBLE camera controls. There's huge amounts of mouse acceleration, the camera sways like crazy. Almost unusable with m+kb.
Graphics are ported straight from PS3-era, the graphics options dont matter much. UI is bad, ported straight from the console version as well, doesn't work well at all on PC.
Combat is a godawful mess. Here's how combat works:
You can only move forwards and backwards by pressing W or S. You have to only spam the left mouse button, and your character does a basic combo. Thats it.
I got tired of this crap after the second fight and uninstalled. Yet another horrible console port JRPG, with combat even more simplistic than Dynasty Warriors.
Do not buy.… Expand
