Top customer reviews
Visually, the 3D overworld camera is quite welcome and the graphics range from decent to gorgeous. The style of the first city is particularly impressive, a starry, arcane-looking metropolis that is set in a perpetual night.
The music is okay, I guess. Not brilliant, nothing terribly memorable. Some of the DLC costumes change it, for better (other Tales series outfits) or worse (the school outfits in particular).
The story is pretty decent, if not amazing. The main characters are extremely likable and interesting, however.
Somewhat standard Tales fare, if not a bit darker in overall tone than the norm.
The combat is easily the best aspect.
Due to the addition of the CC counter, which indicates remaining actions, fighting is a faster, more technical affair -- attacks come out immediately as long as you have CC, with minimal startup and are highly comboable.
Right-stick mapping can be used to call other characters to use their artes (special moves), useful for continuing combos or for quickly calling for healing assistance.
The link system provides various passive benefits for characters depending on who they're linked with, such as the ability to steal items, the ability to easily crush an enemy's guard, etc.
Each character provides an interesting combat experience and spellcasters are surprisingly well suited for player control, a welcome change from previous Tales games -- playing as a spellcaster here is a far more enjoyable affair this time around thanks to the increased combat speed.
Oh, and being able to switch the four fighters in battle at any time with those on the sidelines is the best, although they will only take the spot of a living party member (unlike say, Pokemon).
Characters are customizable with various appearance items, often hidden in purple containers strewn throughout the overworld. There's a decent bit of flexibility, although there are times when I'd like to place certain items with certain others, and the slot I have open is incompatible with the add-on I have (notably, I want to have a hat, ears, and glasses on at the same time).
Unlocking skills is a nicer process than some other Tales games, particularly compared to the rather opaque system from Tales of the Abyss. The Lillium Orb is used to adjust your character's stats and obtain new moves and passive effects, many of which are excellent and improve the combat even more, such as Millia's air-dash skills.
There are a handful of minor problems -- in some areas, many fights are fought under a fair bit of slowdown. The combat usually keeps a steady 60fps, but there is no frameskip -- if the framerate slows, so does the speed of battle.
Some of the voices are really annoying, such as Elize's.
And lastly, there are occasional AI related things that may get you killed, such as AI teammates being rather incautious towards enemies and the effects of enemy attacks -- I've gotten hit by a boss's Mystic Arte because a teammate got hit by their Arcane Arte (which the boss will spam to try to connect it to try to trigger their Mystic Arte) for no good reason. The entire party died.
Overall, I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys action-RPGs or those who enjoy both fighting games and RPGs.
*2 different routes to take on
*Great, lengthy storyline(40-60+ hours...depending what route you take)
*Amazingly beautiful art style(Nice cinematics)
*A ton of bonus content(Side quests, dungeons)
*Graphics show age, yet it feels like it fits the atmosphere
*Some of the character's voices could have had more fitting roles(The voice of Milla seems to have lisp and some side characters voices don't match up)
*Some grinding challenge, it may test your patience(Although, most RPGs have this issue)
*No Japanese Audio (I adore the Japanese voices)
