I think I'm around the half-way point or so (long... orz), so for the moment, decided to collect my current thoughts (don't know localization names, so I'll try my best)...

Spoiler for Yeager-sama, saikou~su:

To those who have played Abyss:
How would you rate Vesperia? How is the length compared to Abyss? Worth buying a 360 just for this game?

Without even playing Abyss...
I can not think of any moment where it is worth buying a whole game console for just one game... Especially the 360, which is quite expensive...
Well, unless you are loaded with money or something...

Short answer. No.

Length they're really the same pretty much.

Storywise and characters Abyss easily wins out in that category.

Gameplay wise Vesperia is a refinement of Abyss so there won't be much difference there either. In fact Vesperia is simply just quite pretty, thats about it but its not even the most dynamic of graphics. Some of the high level skills looked far more extreme in some of the other games simply because of the way they were done.

You're getting basically a good all-round RPG thats got some good gameplay and happens to just be very very pretty but the story and characters feel weaker than your standard fare. Very good by normal RPG standards but lower end of the good boundry for the Tales series.

And I'm just quoting this because it really needs driving into peoples heads. It doesn't matter what console it is, if you can't pick out more than three to five games you badly want chances are its a bad purchase.

Mah~ That's what the experts say, but for me? BEST DAMN 69.90 that I've spent in a long while... Absolutely NOTHING before it had me given up both World of Warcraft AND animes completely for six whole weeks! I even missed the start of the Fall season because of it!

I used to think Rita was more broken...until I found out about Tension skills.

Invincibility due to infinite lv. 4 OL + an effload of Savage Wolf Fury MAs to keep regaining the lv. 4 OL = godlike.

Not just tension. You can abuse free-run attacks with Yuri to force enemies to stand back up. There isn't any need to even have overlimit at level 2 on fallen enemies because of it.
I still think Rita is worse because in Vesperia they forgot to make the bosses overlimit and level 4 overlimit immune to stun, so with overlimit Violent Pain spam you are guaranteed a stun while they are being spammed multiple hits in overlimit.

For some reason I think im starting to lose interest in this game even though I was convinced I'd stick with it for two entire playthroughs. After I got everyone to around level 75 (on Hard) and obtained a really good sword for Yuri that put his strength over 2000, it felt like Yuri was the only character worth a damn. His skills which are unique to only him are insanely efficient for the amount of skill points they take to use, and there is virtually no downside to playing him anymore. He used to at least fall behind in DEF, HP, M.DEF, and AGI compared to many of the other characters, but now he is literally a god and his gear isn't special by any means. That just makes me feel less interested in the idea of learning other characters, because of how inefficient they are in comparison. Its laughable that I can do a 100 man melee with Yuri and complete it with 10 minutes to spare, and for some reason run out of time around 80 kills with Judith. Never-the-less its still sort of fun when I play as Yuri and forget about the fact that he totally imbalances the difficulty of the game.

Grade shop isn't tied to achievements, but it is necessary to achieve some. If you have played any other Tales of games, the grade shop lets you spend grade you earn throughout the game from battles if you are playing in normal difficulty or higher after beating the final boss. Perks include 10x experience, inheriting skills, etc.
