Game started off a bit rushed in character introduction for my taste. Currently the pace is a bit slow too. Just got to the Falls. I like the skits the most so far. Been using a spoiler-free sub event guide for the missable events. Voice acting is pretty good. Milla doesn't bother me as much as some people make it out to be. Combat is fun and like the linking system. Beware of early in-game cutscenes, animations and delivery is cringe worthy. Aside from that I'm loving the game. Only 5 hours in and it seems to be picking up somewhat.

Takes a while to master the controls but after playing it for a few hours, you get used to it. While I agree that the introductions and plot felt really rushed, a lot of the questions I had have been answered as the game progresses. I also believe that it will be more clear once one passes the game with both characters.

Typical tales of tropes. It would not be a Tales game if things weren't predictable lol. xD

9 hours in and things are picking up slowly. I like Elize. She is adorable lol.

Pretty good so far to me. It's often the smaller details that always entertain me. Like the portrait that shows up in the corner of the screen when they say something in battle. And the costume add-ons you find in game are a nice touch.

Definitely can see this taking up my time in the near future.

Since its a story driven game, I think I'll wait for a price drop. I've heard good things though!

I didn't pick it up yet. Because Dragon's Crown appealed to me more, i guess. But i'll get it eventually.

Game's pretty fun.

Titles are now tied into how you earn Grade, you earn a title, you unlock an amount of grade.
It seems that most Costumes are DLC, but you'll get an Outfit and Headwear.
You can also earn Headwear and Attachments in-game as well.

Battle System seems pretty similar to Vesperia, but more balanced and the Critical Finishes are easier to pull off. Then there's Linking with one of the other character's in battle which allows for some extra strategy, like linking with Elize and performing Heal, then the Critical Finish which heals the entire party.

Shops run on an Upgrade system, where you trade in Materials and other items for points that go into whichever shop you're trading with. The more stuff you trade in the better the inventory it will have & the lower the prices will be. Every Shop gives an Item Category Bonus, but it will change per region.

I've Gotten the Weapon Shop up to Lv54 so far..

So I'm at the beginning of Ch3, and havent played for a while cause I just havent had the time lately.
But if anyone needs help or has questions let me know.
