GameSpy: Tales of Vesperia Review

GameSpy has seen a few solid JRPGs on the Xbox 360 (Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey and Eternal Sonata), but until Tales of Vesperia none have really exploited the raw graphical power that the system offers. Vesperia may not deliver a totally fresh plot, but well-written character dialogue and a great combat system go a long way towards mitigating the cliches. A superior blend of style and production values, Tales of Vesperia is the best JRPG on the 360 thus far.

Another good score for this game. Definately starting to look like one I am going to pick up.

TheColbertinator3708d ago

Whoa there.Dont rush into it Crab.Wait to see if Infinite Undiscovery is better

GiantEnemyCrab3708d ago

I'm pretty much set on buying IU on day one. I've been on the fence with Tales but these reviews are convincing me.

TheColbertinator3708d ago

Well if you have the extra cash for the holiday rush,go for it.I got a dilemma with PS360 purchases so I can't make any overreacting decisions.The one JRPG for sure that I am buying this year is Star Ocean 4.As for Tales I will wait and see

KillaManiac3708d ago

Really?...im pretty visa versa...just because IU is like 1/3 as long as Tales of Vesp.

The art style of this game looks really nice. Reminds me of a Studio Ghibli film for some reason. Hope it comes to the PS3 at some point down the line.

TheColbertinator3708d ago

Well maybe its better that PS3 gets its own Tales game.I feel Namco could benefit from giving each console their own exclusive.1 for Wii,1 for PS3,1 for 360 etc.

GiantEnemyCrab, the metacritic score is around at 8, not really that good reviews, besides, M$ bribed for this game, your gonna accept their bribes?

Bleucrunch3708d ago

Too bad this series is not that popular in the states so it wont sell but be sure that the tales game that comes out for the ps3 will sell.

Dyingduck3708d ago

This game has lower score than Disaga3, a sRPG...

Xheratuul3708d ago (Edited 3708d ago )

will 360 owners even buy this game in the US?

Zerodin3708d ago

If they do will you retire that tired old bit of fanboy fodder?

Baka-akaB3708d ago

After a decent Blue Dragon , and a lackluster Lost Odyssey (sorry but i feel that even the average Enchanted arms was better) , here comes the first true major 360 jrpg !

As a tales fan i was bound to get the title anyway . And i'm pretty sure i'll get infinite undiscovery and disgaea 3 (on ps3) as well .

TheColbertinator3708d ago

Make sure to look out for Star Ocean 4 and The Last Remnant
