The Good

I love a good RPG and Tales of Berseria does not disappoint. It has the usual mechanics but the story is much better than others that I've played. You find yourself playing only to see how the story ends. No spoilers here.

The graphics aren't bleeding edge by any means but they get thejob done, for sure. They especially cool during the fights where each memeber of your team pulls out their best magic attacks.

The Bad

As a true RPG, Tales of Berseria, suffers from constant grinding, dungeon crawling, and a steep learning curve for the character leveling and combat system mechanics. Although many enemies can be avoided, there are many stages where you have to constantly go the long way around to unlock a shortcut. And sometimes there is no shortcut. After leaving your destination and leveling up, you should be much stronger to defeat those same enemies on your long trek back. 

Busy Dad Score

Tales of Berseria gets a Busy Dad Score of 1 star. It's a fun but is not made for a quick game and there's a high learning curve.
