I heard mixed thoughts on Tales of Zestiria before (hence I didn't get it during the Steam Winter sale). Meanwhile, pretty excited for this release. I'll probably get it after reading reviews to see the reception.

I haven't played Zesteria, but I watched the anime and rather enjoyed it in spite of Sorey being such an annoying do-gooder, and the usual tiresome tropes about the power of friendship blahblahblah....
I think the pissed off part-demon gal looking for revenge will be a more interesting story, tbh.

I just hope that she's going to be a likable character
I don't want her to have revenge on her mind all the time like sasuke in the original Naruto

Well, played the demo on PS4 and...... Hm. Here's my impressions from the brief time I spent with it.
Gameplay- meh. Combat is frenetic, but it still kinda feels like I'm just pressing buttons until the fight is over- all feels rather easy and there's almost no need for tactics, even in the more difficult fights. Travelling throught the field is just..... well, you go from one place to another, pick up shiny thigs, avoid or fight enemies and watch the occasional skit. There's only 2 skits that I found in the demo, but they were acually quite funny! ^_^
Characters- seems to be some real promise here. Velvet is clearly not a happy person, but she doesn't seem to be all "my vengence is all that matters GRRRAAAAA" The rest of the cast seem likeable, given that we only get to spend a short amount of time with them in the demo.
All in all, not bad, but not great. It's pure Tales and that's ok........ but speaking as an older gamer, I kinda wish the series would grow up a bit. I'll pick it up eventually though once the price drops a bit.

That's kind of the formula for every Tales games. Don't mess with the battle system. Tweak the story a bit from game to game, and we can produce one of these games a year on a small-mid range budget.

Yeah, you can't really expect too much innovation out a series that produces yearly sequels. In terms of trying to create a better game with every iteration it isn't really there.

The being said, the demo was fun. Some of the voices sound a bit off, but I like how the battle system felt.

Didn't know Eizen was a playable character either. Now I definitely feel like I need to finish Zestiria first.

Just played the first couple of hours or so, and I wish I didn't have to get some sleep before work tomorrow. What an opening. Damn. Combat is a little lacking so far but with only one character and barely any attacks that's to be expected. Graphics are nice in style but it's clear this is a PS3 game bumped up to PS4 instead of one designed for PS4 from the start.

Velvet is just an awesome of a character as I thought she would be going all the way back to the initial reveal of her design.
