Tales of Berseria is a surprisingly strong showing for this long-running series. Its tragic story of broken people fighting on the wrong side of history makes it utterly compelling, and its well-tuned combat more than makes up for its lack of interesting environments. Simply put, this is a tale to heartbreaking to miss, or to forget.

A much more interesting story and lead character than usual for the series, but the weak script and aging combat system fail to make the most of it.

Berseria has some flaws and archaic design, but it’s one of the most interesting Tales games I’ve played
