    Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition is a worthy purchase for anyone that enjoyed the original or simply anyone that enjoys heartfelt, compelling RPGs. There’s enough new content — weaved in with remastered visuals and remixed locations — to appease even the most stingy of Remaster skeptics out there.

    Tales of Vesperia is the first Tales game that I’ve put significant time into since the original PlayStation, and frankly the Switch has made it so I can’t finish super-long RPGs without some sort of portability. If you’re looking for a jumping-in point for the series, Vesperia is the way to go.

    Tales of Vesperia is one of my favorite Tales games and one of my favorite games from the last generation. While Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition could have benefitted from some quality of life improvements found in newer Tales games, the remastered version still holds up as one of the best Tales games available. Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is a must-have for fans of the original release due to its new characters and is a great entry point for anyone new to the Tales series as well.

    A nice rehearsal of the best "Tales of" chapter. Very nice if it's the first time you play it, superfluous if you already played the original version.

    All in all, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is a solid remaster of a fun and enjoyable JRPG. It has its flaws and foibles, including a relative weak final story arc and a somewhat inconsistent battle system, but it's one of the most popular Tales titles for a reason. It's plenty of fun to play, and fans of JRPGs will easily overlook the flaws for what is a genuinely enjoyable romp through an old game style.

    At the end of the day, traditional JRPG fans will get a kick out of this quirky mobile adventure, especially if you’ve been itching for something since Xenoblade 2. Similarly if you are a Tales fanatic, all of the DLC bits and bobs are included in the package. But if you are expecting something out of the norm, this probably isn’t the game for you.

    It isn’t a fantastic experience but hopefully post launch patches improve the visuals and the framerate. If you want to play this docked, get it on another platform.

    The long awaited Complete Version of Tales of Vesperia!
    It feel SO GOOD to finally have a lot of costumes to unlock, finally a lots of sidequest to find out when you replay, finally a lots of optional content and bosses. I feel like this game gave me everything I wanted "more of" tales of symphonia.

    The characters are overall pretty good, Yuri put a great dynamic with the team and each character feel very distinct.

    Battle Wise the game is more clunky in first few hours than most tales of, but open up much more in the end, which gives a fantastic sense of progression through the game and in the challenge keeps up, to max level in the endgame challenges. Add to that 9 playable characters and you have the most diverse cast and a lot to learn if you want to vary your play style.

    Story wise it's pretty simple, it's mostly about people figure it out and an adventure in the classic sense, it wasn't as groundbreaking as other tales of, but servicable.

    As most tales of you can still have fantastic couch multiplayer, expect great replayability from the NG+, unlocked difficulties, numerous Ex dungeons, and a lots of things to unlock.

    If for some reason you don't like anime or JRPG in general, just pass on this game, for the other just buy it.

A great 50+ hours story. Alot of side quest and much more. With the Nintendo switch you can take this game on the go and because of that this is the best version of the game. I love this game from the beginning to the very end. This game have alot of replay value and are totally worth 45$. It's not even a 60$ game. If you haven't played this game and own the system, now is your time. Perfect to play with your friends, partner or kids. The story is lovely, an action JRPG dream came true AGAIN. Expand

    What a game ...(what a shame...) symphonia, xillia 1 & 2,berseria, zestiria, grace and abyss are better than that and that's why:

    With a plot twist worse that in vampire diaries, where you can clearly see that some characters are complete a**hole and will betray you the first second after they are introduced.

    It's the first tales of that i complete in automatic combat because of the slow controls (I've started auto mode after 14 hours of playtime)

    Not enough fan service. ( cool Aizen references tho )

    A sorcerer ring that hit ennemies 1/5 times like in symphonia (5 years after symphonia),

    No tracking for quest

    The way to get more clothes is s**tty (my opinion btw)

    A main character that doesn't have a little bit of charisma ( SPOIL: just two times when he murder some dudes, will not give the names for the... SPOIL )

    Repede has more charisma than 3/4 of the characters and he is a DOG . Exceptions for me are Judith and Patty. Karol is a cry-baby, Rita should shut the "fudge" up more often and show some respect for others, Flynn needs to be hit so freaking hard in his pretty baby face and Raven ..... oh Raven did he ever take a shower in his life ?
    For Estellise, I think that she do her job perfectly.... ( a dumb princess that take so much sh*t in the face that she begin to think after 3/4 of the game ....Hourra !! )

    I personally think this game is trash because he is the only one tales of game on Microsoft console,and to not discourage new player of the serie, they have made this game, easy, with no depth and a little bit of fan service for those who where crazy to buy a xbox360 for this one game.

    that's why I gave this game a score of 5 .... ( It hurts me a lot but I had to do it ....even legendia is better for me. but Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World is definitively the most sh**tier of the tales of )
