The beautiful tenth instalment in the much loved Tales series is rarely seen for less than £30, so with a price of £17.95, Zavvi are offering yet another fantastic deal. The next best offer is from Gamestation and, with a mark up of £17, it's nearly double the price!
In the land of Terca Lumireis, the people rely on blastia, a kind of ancient technology, for virtually every aspect of life. When the blastia that ensures the residents of his village have fresh water to drink is stolen, Yuri Lowell sets off with his canine pal to recover it but soon finds himself embroiled in a political conflict that has far reaching consequences which may affect the fate of the entire world.
While this story is not a particularly original one, it is interesting and compelling enough to keep you guessing throughout the impressive length of the game. Similarly the characters are charming and brought to life with some lovely voice acting, helping to keep you emotionally invested in their struggles.
The game is delightfully presented, with cel-shaded character models in very pretty environments, all washed in a pastel array of colours. While it's sometimes to easy to pull off victories with just a furious bout of button bashing, the real time battle system makes combat nonetheless fast, slick and very enjoyable.
Tales of Vesperia is great fun to play and definitely one of the better JRPGs available on the current generation of consoles. You may want to hurry as copies are bound to be snatched up at this bargain price.
