Tales of Vesperia is a fine RPG, but its somewhat cliché story stands at the cliff of the compelling and doesn't take a leap of faith. For that reason, it may feel as though you've played through this game before even though you surely haven't. The battle system makes it a blast to play and the pacing between battle and story is insanely well balanced, which can keep you in front of the screen without realizing how long you've played. If you're new to the genre, then you may find the story compelling and the experience memorable, but otherwise it might just feel a bit too much the same. Also, if you're a 360 owner dying for a quality Japanese-styled RPG, this is definitely it.
