Well, beside this one, I have played
Phantasia, Symphonia 1 and 2, Vesperia
and Zestiria. But Besrseria for me is
the best entry i've played. I feel they
really perfected the 3D battle system
since I'm having no issues like I did
in Symphonia 2 and Vesperia. Also, the
story of Berseria is awesome - the plot
twists and the character development is
really great (besides Rokurou, that is
complete useless to the main plot). I
don't think the series are heading to a
bad direction, I really feel the games
are improving in every new entry. The
only thing that bothers me is the tacky
japanese humour (and that's not going
anywhere anytime soon) and the
copy/paste feelings of the graphics. For
me, you guys complaining is nothing but
nostalgia...

I like how poster Nem posts without
probably even playing the game as most
of what he said is complete BS, the game
is full of content: side events,
minigames, ingame costumes, the pacing
in Berseria is better than all other
Tales games, plot and characters are the
best the series had to offer since
Abyss, gameplay is more subjective but
it is definitely fun, i prefer it over
most other tales games.
You can like
Vesperia gameplay and graphics and style
all you want but the plot and pacing in
that game are pretty bad. Symphonia is
nothing special either, Berseria is
better then both and most people who
played the game say it is one of the
best in the series, the fact that the
sales are some of the best the series
had in the west in the first weeks
(because of good word of mouth) are a
proof of that, as well as the critics
reception.
Yes it is just nostalgia,
obviously you can say that you liked the
2D style of the older games more but
it's just your opinion anyway. You most
likely whatched some videos on youtube
or tried the (poor)demo and dcided that
the game is "mediocre", wich is not
true at all, especially if compared to
the other Tales games or the other JRPG
of the past few years, it is actually
one of the better ones.
Also no, today
games like Symphonia and Abyss don't
hold really well, the only one who still
holds up is Vesperia but only in terms
of graphic and gameplay as i said the
plot is not that good or interesting and
it completely falls apart in the third
act.
Also Xillia diddn't have PC
relase and we don't know digital PSN
sales of Berseria so i can't speak for
those.
lol Baba did not work on
Berseria, it had a completely new
producer and it shows as it is much more
dark and mature than every other Tales
game.
Just because you don't like the
series anymore doesn't mean that nobody
else can nor that the games are not good
:P

I like how poster Ryan gives digital
sales to Berseria but not to Xillia.
This game is a mediocre tales tame, like
the one before it, wich only the most
hardcore fans can enjoy. Is it slightly
better than Zestiria? Sure, but its
still mediocre.
What the old games
wasnt nostalgia, it was pacing,
structure and uniqueness. The 2D style
gameplay wich was unuque, the world
structure wich allowed the pacing to
remain high (unlike the long fields of
nothing we got today) and a focus on
characters and world building. You can
still play symphonia, abyss or vesperia
this very day and they simply hold up.
Graces, Xillia, Zeteria and Berseria
will bore you to no end. This series
died in the hands of Baba(and thus why
he jumped ship), and we'll see if
anyone can pick it up from the ground
now.

Velvet ain't got nothing on Aqua.

Nostalgia obviously :P This is one of
the best Jrpg on PS4 and my favorite
game in the series with Abyss, it has
much better story/characters than most
Tales games including Vesperia and
Symphonia and gameplay is fluid fast and
fun.
Btw if it's not overtracked,
those are some pretty good first week
sales in the US, the best since Xillia
and if we add the 60K sold on steam and
Europe sales which i guess should be
around 30K to 40K as usual for Tales, i
think we can say that Berseria did
pretty well in its first month in the
west.
