[Game] Tales of Zestiria

Tales of ZestiriaThe first Tales game I actually dropped in the middle. A bit of a shame, given characters were actually fairly likable, but I just couldn’t bear the utterly dull plot and tedious game-play anymore. I hated everything about Xillia other than the game-play, and now they even “tweaked” that; wonder if this signifies the end of the series.

Positive: Negative:
Attractive character designs Environments feel empty and lack artistic touch
Likable characters
Bland protagonist
Bland story that relies solely on archetypes to move forward
Boring, almost random plot has no tension whatsoever
Dungeon design alternates between bland and tedious
Tedious equipment, and skill system
Tedious, long battles
Kamui mechanic takes the challenge away
