    There's a lot new to the adventures of Brave Vesperia if you didn't play the Japan-only PS3 version of the game, but it's also a great game to just jump into as your first Tales game. Likable characters and addicting gameplay, it'll keep your attention for literally days' worth just for a run of the main story.

    After years of just decent Tales of games, Vesperia's remaster reminds me of what made me fall in love with the series in the first place. Amazing characters, gameplay, and visuals.

    I was excited to play one of the best in series for the first time! After playing Zestria, and Beseria which is my favorite I couldn't believe that this games characters were on par. The graphics are great and has a good frame rate.

    Best JRPG of 2019 so far

    Great cast of characters, amazing combat depth for a JRPG that spans 40-60 hours long, and an ageless art design that still looks good today. If you don't prefer the English dub, the game gives you the opportunity to switch to Japanese before starting the game. I never played the original, so I would put in the category of one of the best JRPGs released this year since it's new to me.

    This is the best way to play the game it runs 60fps both in game and in cutscenes. If you missed out getting this game last gen when it was out for 360 then now is the perfect time to correct that problem. The combat, story, and characters are all wonderful and you will have a great time experiencing the story Highly recommend!

    A wonderful entry in the Tales series of jRPGs, Vesperia finally releases in North America with content previously only available in Japan. With a fantastic cast of characters and active battle gameplay, Tales of Vesperia is easy to pick up and play, even if you have not played a Tales game before. Recommended!

    I've really enjoyed this game so far. The characters are great and the anime cutscenes are fantastic. I'm a little disappointed that they didnt update the combat to match zestiria and berseria, but overall it's a great game.

    Easily the best Tales of game in the last 10 years and one of the better ones in the series long run. Great characters with a strong story and interesting world. Full upgraded graphics with 1080p 60 frames per second gameplay (on PS4, switch and Xbox are lower) and all of the Japanses bonus content from the PS3

    I was very excited when this was announced for PS4. I played the original on the 360, but didn't get to finish it. The only real thing fans will notice is some of the voice changes for some of the characters, even though some of the actors/actresses came back to voice new lines. Most of the PS3 DLC came bundled with it, and with two extra characters too. JRPG and Tales fans would enjoy this adventure from start to finish.

    Tales Series For Beginners

    This is a good introduction into the series for those interested in the Tales of series. Great characters and combat is one of my favorites. The only thing that would seem not fleshed out is Act 3 of the game. It starts to overstay its welcome. Otherwise the game as a whole is what one would expect in JRPG. The protagonist is one of the best representations in gaming in my opinion. Definitely a must play.

    Terrifically translated PS3 Tales game.

    Most people already know about Vesperia, as it is highly regarded as the best in the series. I will start off by saying this is the same version that was featured on the PS3 in 2009, only this time around it is fully translated, without the need of a the "Fan Translation Patch" that only a people with a hack PS3 and Vesperia eboot could use. Vesperia still has a remarkable charm and has aged extraordinarily well, and also happens to be my favorite in the series. The world map, great combat, soundtrack, art direction, bosses, robust content, the cast, just everything, makes for a well rounded experience. If you have never played Vesperia, but have played some of the newer Tales games, I will say that while the combat does not feel to dated, some of the newer Tales games have perfected the combat, so it may feel a little stiff to some. No matter how much we try to give Vesperia justice and talk about the great things, we are talking about a game that is 10 years old. However, even with that being said, I think that the combat only falls behind Xilla 2 and Hearts R, mostly do the the aerial combat not being as versatile. With all that aside, it still stands the test of time. I will try to list all the added content not found in the 360 version. As someone who has played the PS3 and 360 version, I will say that there is a "profound" difference, and that the upgrade is more than worth it. Also lets not forget to mention that for the first time ever, dual audio has been added! -Features full voice acting which is almost double the size of the original script. -Features various new characters such as Flynn and Patty. -New mini-games such as a racing mini-game for Repede. -New subplots, skits and main game quests as well as side quests. -New songs added to the games soundtrack. -Remodeled towns and new towns and dungeons. -New bosses such as the Sword Dancer from previous Tales games and others. -Players are able to replay boss fights at Nam Cobanda Isle. -Higher Overlimit levels up to 8. -More Mystic Artes including a Dual Mystic Arte with Yuri and Flynn. -New artes, skills and equipment for characters. -The "Artes Ball" which allows an additional 8 Artes shorcuts to be assigned. -Features a wide variety of new character costumes. -Includes a scene-skip feature and ability to pause anime cutscenes. -Added Team Arena in the Coliseum which also has new battles and modes. -Can now run around the world as Repede. -Improved AI. -New Attachments. -New grade shop options to retain Fell Arm Kills. -More trophies.
