Most Beautiful Games in January 2019
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition
Tales of Vesperia is one of those rare games that has simply aged beautifully over the years, and that’s because the game’s graphical style is wonderfully timeless. The anime cutscenes look good as well, and they certainly don’t look dated, unlike the ones from the older Tales of Symphonia.
When you’re in-game, you get to ogle at Vesperia’s pretty cel-shaded graphics, and marvel at the detail that’s gone into designing each of the characters.
Gameplay-wise, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition can be a little rough around the edges, especially with the combat system during the early hours. However, almost everything else about the game still feels modern enough.
While it’s not the most graphically-intensive game on the market right now, Vesperia still sports a very bright and vibrant color palette, making it a delight to look at. Environments will shift and react to you in very slight ways, and overall, this is just such a pretty JRPG that you could it admire for hours and never get sick of it.
