    A paper-based fantasy offers dozens of hours of quality entertainment, superbly written dialogues and countless memorable characters and moments. Tales of Vesperia is a safe bet. [Issue#294]

    The best option to revisit -or experience for the first time- an excellent JRPG that today -and in this enhanced version with all the extra content that was never released in the West- feels as fresh as it did when it was originally released.

    Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition lives up to its namesake, delivering new content previously exclusive to Japan and updated visuals that enhance an already gorgeous aesthetic. The fantastic cast of characters, breathtaking world, and amazing combat elevate Vesperia to the highest point of the Tales series. This is the perfect opportunity for veterans to rediscover their love of this great RPG, as well as the best way for newcomers to experience an incredible game that still holds its own.

    While Namco Bandai has not released a real 8th generation title in the Tales series yet, the new ported version of Tales of Vesperia feels like a solid JRPG that can easily be compared with current 8th generation titles. If you are a fan of JRPGs and for some reason had no chance to grab it back in 2008, now is the time for you to experience one of the best entries in the Tales series and one of the best JRPGs ever.

    Short on innovation but engaging and full of character, Tales Of Vesperia is one of the best tales games and sits well in the collection of any JRPG fan. [Issue#159, p.96]

    Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is truly a love letter from Namco Tales Studios to fans of the franchise. While the main story is a touch trite and the combat a little dull, it’s worth it to accompany this cast of interesting and nuanced characters on their journey to save the day.

    Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition will definitely appeal to fans of the genre.

    Потрясающая игра. Отменный длинный сюжет, большой интересный мир. Только боевая система как и во всех tales of отстой. Отдельно хочетсяПотрясающая игра. Отменный длинный сюжет, большой интересный мир. Только боевая система как и во всех tales of отстой. Отдельно хочется отметить красивую графику - играешь как аниме или мультфильм смотришь. Жаль что после этой части bandai перестала делать такую картинку и в следующих частях графика выглядит отстало. Жаль. Жаль. Жаль. Expand

    Nunca había jugado a un Tales Of hasta ahora. El primero ha sido Vesperia y la experiencia ha sido buena. Estamos ante un JRPG con combates enNunca había jugado a un Tales Of hasta ahora. El primero ha sido Vesperia y la experiencia ha sido buena. Estamos ante un JRPG con combates en tiempo real, que para mí es lo que falla en este juego. La movilidad de los personajes a la hora de combatir no es muy precisa y menos a la hora de ejecutar habilidades llegando a fallar muchas veces. Cuando los enemigos son fáciles no hay problema pero cuando la cosa se complica puede llegar a frustrar. En cuanto a la historia, me ha parecido lo mejor del juego, larga e interesante con buenos personajes. El mejor: Yuri, el protagonista, un chico que cuando tiene que hacer algo malo, lo hace, a pesar de que no sea la opción correcta para sus compañeros. Gráficamente no es nada espectacular, con un estilo cell-shading anime sencillo que le queda bastante bien. El mapeado es un mundo abierto por el que vas viajando conforme avanzas en la historia,, derrotando enemigos y encontrando objetos, como en un JRPG de toda la vida. Después están las zonas explorables que no son muy grandes y que son lineales con algún que otro camino secundario. A pesar de sus limitaciones y que el combate puede no resultar tan satisfactorio como debería, por la historia es un juego que recomendaría. Le pongo un 7 porque me parece buena nota, que es un notable. Aunque este en amarillo no significa que ya sea regulero o malo. Expand
