Tales of Berseria 

 

Tales of Berseria starts out as a pretty good Tales game, you play a huntress named Velvet and she surprisingly was completely covered up. Don’t get too exited about it as once you become a demon and exit the prologue - she wears such a revealing top that she might as well have nothing and just take the deserved M or AO rating. Throughout the game the only people who can kill the demons are exorcists through the Tales equivalent of angels except they are slaves to their exorcists.

Many of the characters in Tales of Berseria have very foul mouths and love swearing which makes sense since the party you get consists of an exorcist, 2 demons, 2 Malaks(angels), and a witch. Except for the angels their mouths are foul despite them being angels. Tales of Berseria is also part of the war on men as I stated previously the main character is wearing very little clothing, unless you find the costume tab and change it, she complains when men look at her and when some soldiers asked her if she was cold she threatened their lives. Velvet also says many hateful things about men through the game.

The fight mechanics in Tales of Berseria are almost the same as early Tales games with the exception of the souls and eating mechanic. Souls act as a stamina bar for being effective when attacking, but you can button spam and be just fine. The eating mechanic is introduced when you become a demon and have to eat others to survive. Some of the only good things in Tales of Berseria are the music and the expeditions. The expeditions allow you to send your crew to go find loot in real time so you can save and stop. Then later come back and it will be done once the time limit is over.

Tales of Berseria seems to have very slow progression in levels and in story, however you can find the super powerful Code Red enemies who give good exp. The game also has you pitied against the church as your main goal is to kill the Messiah, with your group of drunks and others. One of the main characters has an extremely large blade but refuses to use it as he says it is better if he doesn’t.

Tales of Berseria is meant to cater towards the feminist groups however it does a even better job objectifying women with the clothing that Velvet wears through the course of Tales of Berseria. Tales of Berseria has all kinds of false worship as the Messiah has a Malak who is built up as an “All Powerful God” but in reality is pretty weak compared to a couple of demons. Tales of Berseria is also a massive 13.2 GB game so consider that before buying digital and then go physical.
