About Tales of Vesperia The First Strike Blu-ray/DVD Anime Classics

In Tales of Vesperia, in a mythical kingdom, the mighty Imperial Knights harness a magical substance known as Aer to power their weapons and protect humanity from the monsters of the forest. But something strange is afoot; the Aer is somehow changing, causing the wilderness to waste away and stirring the woodland beasts to attack with greater frequency. As danger creeps steadily closer to civilization, two young recruits, Flynn, the rigid son of a fallen hero, and the rebellious and brash Yuri must ride with their fellow Imperial Knights to distant ruins in hopes of uncovering the truth behind the transforming Aer. Some will not survive the thrilling journey. Some will be betrayed. If Flynn and Yuri cannot overcome their differences and learn to fight together, all will be lost for the people of the realm.

A Decent Standalone.

by

This is a prequel to the popular video game, and provides a self-contained story entailing some early exploits of the game's main protagonists. Most of the other characters are original to the film and either do not appear in the game at all, or have only minor cameos in some versions.

For what it was, it was a solid film, fun and slick, but with little substance. It has minimal tie-in to the game beyond showcasing the protagonists when they were younger and less experienced. Of course, all we have is the run time of a single movie, so that's kind of expected.

It's a decent fantasy film in its own right, and a bit of extra fun for game players. Fans of either stripe might find this worth their while, though others would see it as derivative and generic.

A nice prequel to a very good game.

by

This is a good movie, you will be spoiled on a villain if you watch this before Playing "Tales of Vesperia" so it's recommended to finish the game first. Movie contains good action scenes, likable characters and very important character development between Yuri and Flynn when they first became knights. You see why Yuri has Repede by his side and find out about flynn's past so there's definitely meaningful content you might have wondered about while playing the game. Overall I would say if you loved the game this is a must see but it's still a good movie in it's own right and an enjoyable watch for those that never intend to play the game.

An enjoyable standalone film with some heart

by -

I’ve played a few “Tales of” games and know much about them but never played Vesperia. I’m glad and relieved to say that this film is a standalone film, but I’m sure I’d like it even more if I played the game first. But yeah, I quite enjoyed this one. It’s easy to follow, has fun characters (but you do want to see more of them and more of their back story), and the action is entertaining. Even the serious moments got a little emotion from me. The look and sound of it is nothing too spectacular, but I felt pretty connected to the story. In all, I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would and would recommend it. It even made me more curious as to check out the game.
