Tales of Berseria - Teaser Trailer
Positive: 46 out of 57
Mixed: 11 out of 57
Negative: 0 out of 57
Feb 17, 2017Faster, smoother, and bursting at the seams with content, Berseria delivers a much needed kick to the series.
Feb 13, 2017With the best story since Abyss and the best cast of characters since Vesperia, Tales of Berseria is the best entry in Bandai Namco's flagship franchise for years.
Jan 29, 2017Tales of Berseria is one of the best JRPG with real-time battles you can find at the moment. It has its shortcomings, but you forget about them thanks to its narrative and gameplay.
Jan 25, 2017Tales of Berseria is a solid JRPG that doesn't excel in any one area but manages to hit all the marks well enough to be enjoyable. It's not ambitious and focuses on providing a pleasant experience. It suffers from being too easy and spending too much time clearing up its predecessor's flaws, but it's balanced by fast-paced combat and an entertaining cast. It's not going to change your world, but Tales fans should find a lot to like, and for casual players, it's a good introduction to the franchise.
Jan 30, 2017While it may take a while to grasp, Tales of Berseria also has one of the most satisfying combat systems I’ve seen from a JRPG in a while. It’s easily the first must-have JRPG of 2017.
Feb 7, 2017Berseria is in many ways just another Tales Of game. The combat feels familiar, the environments are non-distinct and the cooking system isn’t anything special or new. What carries this entry is its narrative, the characters, and how the game explores the consumptive and destructive nature of revenge as a motivator. It’s an interesting RPG story wrapped in decent, if not exciting, surrounding elements. An alright RPG I’m certainly glad I played.
Jan 26, 2017A much more interesting story and lead character than usual for the series, but the weak script and aging combat system fail to make the most of it.

antes de fazer a analise desse jogo , eu esperei zerar parar dar minha opinião e depois de exatas 116 horas( apenas a historia principal ) de jogo eu posso dizer , para mim esse é o melhor jogo da franquia Tales que eu joguei até o momento.
se você gosta de jogos JRPG esse jogo é pra você , se você gosta da franquia Tales esse jogo é perfeito pra você, se você gosta de historia e personagens bem construidos, esse certamente é um jogo pra você.
não ouve nada nesse jogo que não gostei. personagem com total aprofundamento, variação de monstros, vilões muito bem usados, varios plotes , momentos de tristeza e um final digno.
uma coisa que eu digo é que todos o personagens são interessantes, não tem um que você vire a cara e diga que odio , e não quer usar no seu time, a liberdade de coisas que você pode fazer é vasta depois de um tempo de jogo, e uma dica que eu dou, AUMENTE A DIFICULDADE DO JOGO COM FORME VOCÊ VAI PEGANDO O JEITO DO JOGO, digo isso pois a maior graça e diversão do jogo acaba sendo jogar na dificuldades mais difíceis, mas se estiver muito dificil , não se force a jogar nela e abaixe a dificuldade pois se não isso pode estressar.
UMA DICA: Sempre que você ver uma balão com ( ! ), va e fale com o npc , isso pode contar alguma historia extra sobre os personagem , o que da muito mais vida a eles.

The story is spectacular, velvet the protagonist is a total bad ass.. . .the story has a dark vibe and is pretty deep. Got really attached and emotionally involved with all the party members. Graphics are decent. Combat is awesome. Super fast and fluid, smooth as hell really and its pretty beefy in depth. In all honesty this game smokes FFXV and i liked that game a lot. This is one of the best RPGs ive ever played. The story is so good and the game is huge with tons of narrative and new areas. If you want a JRPG dont bother with anything else, this is one of the best games ive played in a very long time. Another masterpiece from Bandai Namco.… Expand

Coming off zestiria with tempered expectations, i was blown away by how amazing this was. They truly outdid theirselves with Berseria. Each character is fleshed out, and the soundtrack really set the aumbiance. The opening this time was beautifully crafted (Flow always does the best work) and the story has you walking the thin line between good and bad, and the story pulls at the feels. definately worth the money… Expand

It won me me over with its characters, their development and story atop on aIt was my first game of the Tales series and a great experience. It won me me over with its characters, their development and story atop on a good battle system. It is an action RPG and set in the Holy Midgand Empire which rules over the world. It is the story of Velvet Crowe who wants to take revenge against her brother in law more than anything after the events that happen in the so called Scarlet Night. The event changed the world and a new menace called Demonblight appeared. Her whole life was turned upside down and she changed too as she become basically the monster that monsters fear. I leave it here to not spoil plot points. On her journey she meets other people that join her party. I wont use names to avoid spoilers here too. There is an innocent boy, a member of the church, a ronin (or what the worlds equivalent is), a sorceress and a pirate. Each of them has their own arcs, background (or baggage?) character development and growth. It is well integrated in the story. The story itself fully delivers. What seems as simple revenge plot against a one dimensional bad guys turns out to be far more complex. There are a lot of twist and some will change the believes and expectations of the player and characters. There is also a system called skits which are clips that pop up. Here the characters have conversations. These can be serious, just commentaries or pure comedy gold ;-). I want to praise the developer for this rich cast of characters. It was a refreshing and enjoyable experience. Gameplay: The real time battle system is called Liberation LMBS. You have full control of your character during battle and attack with normal attacks or special attacks (artes), guard or evade. Your are in control of a character and can switch to all active party members (4 active members if I remember correctly). Special abilities need Souls from the Soul Gauge. You have 5 points to use which are restored by time. Emptying it completely has disadvantages but only after unleashing powerful attacks. Of cause there are side quest, mini games and additional content. After finishing the story new additional content is unlocked. The battle system works smoothly and is impactful. I enjoyed the battles and barely ever struggled. It was also great to explore the world and traveling around. Graphical I truly enjoyed the art style and character models. It is anime inspired and won me over. The soundtrack was pretty good but also not in the league that I searched for the songs. I want to praise the voice actors for the good performance. Special praise for the antagonists before I forget this. I have not much negatives to complain. I do not like all mini games and should point out that the ending while satisfying for me can be a disappointment. Overall this was an enjoyable game and I value this experience. It is a strong 9/10 for me with a bad feeling not to have given 10/10. I recommend it for the main character, other characters, story and interactions.… Expand
Apr 19, 2017My first Tales game so i have limited expertise on the series, but this game was surprisingly good.
The first hour or so really left meMy first Tales game so i have limited expertise on the series, but this game was surprisingly good.
The first hour or so really left me kind of bored and wondering if i made a bad choice even sticking it into my PS4, but all of the sudden, BLAM! the game metamorphosed into vehicle for an engaging story that i wanted to keep playing just to find out what happened next.
The fighting mechanics are deep and fun, and you never get bogged down with thousands of side quests you dont really want to do.
The game is not linear but its no open world either. There are defined paths for you to follow between areas and towns. I dont find this to be a detriment, though. Not all games need an open world.
I am a newly made "Tales" fan due to this game. A great story with good mechanics and many cat puns is a solid formula.

Apr 3, 2020this game can pretty much be summed up with the sentence "sometime's i'm angry, other times i'm less angry". now, if that didn't make it clearthis game can pretty much be summed up with the sentence "sometime's i'm angry, other times i'm less angry". now, if that didn't make it clear enough, the story is questionable at best. beyond that, the graphics aren't something a person should expect beyond early ps3. the game play? technically, that can also be summed up by my initial quote. i'm not even sure if the companions DO anything, and i'm fairly certain your monstrous hand does all the work. as a more personal issue, i found ingredient collection and weapon creation to be the most tedious i've ever seen in a game. one ingredient in particular can only be obtained from breaking weapons/armor that don't have a buff effect and it's a basic upgrade material that's "most easily" obtainable that way. due to "perks" you get as you continue the game it makes it even harder to get un-buffed equipment. not to mention they are entirely random. you want to focus on a specific build? not if your equipment doesn't allow you to. lastly, due to how the weapon experience bar works, it makes it feel even less pleasant upgrading or changing equipment.… Expand
