Tales of Arise lifts the bar: it's the saga's highest-rated game on Metacritic

Tales of Arise is expected to be one of the year's most memorable video games. The aggregator web Metacritic already shows an average of more than fifty ratings after the publishing of the national and international media analysis this Wednesday afternoon. The Bandai Namco Entertainment title currently has a PS5 score of 87 out of 100, which is the highest of the entire series.


Currently, Tales of Arise beats Tales of Symphonia.

After Tales of Berseria (2017), which received an 80, and the remastered versions of Tales of Vesperia (2019), which received between an 81 and an 83 depending on the version, there had been a long period of time without approaching the ratings of the genre's greats; those who enjoy sagas like Dragon Quest, Persona, or Shin Megami Tensei. Things have changed with Tales of Arise, which has been hailed as one of the best renditions of the franchise by critics around the world. Tales of Symphonia (2004; 86 out of 100) has been exceeded seventeen years later.


What could be the reason for this shift? What's the difference between this episode and the ones that came before it? In the lack of knowing the general public's requirements as of September 10, 2021, the specialized media highlight, among other things, MeriStation's analysis, a great fighting system with real-time action and a frenzy at the pinnacle of the genre.

The artistic approach of this Tales of Arise is also noteworthy, as is how effectively it has adapted to modern times, with more engaging supplementary missions and a progression from less to more. In some ways, it marks the start of a new chapter in the narrative.


Tales of Arise will be available in full Spanish in both physical and digital formats on September 10 for Xbox One, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series, and PC.
