Well, again, the only "hate" review is a blatant troll, copied and pasted from a forum post opening with a big troll paragraph and spending barely any time talking about the game, to the point it doesn't even meet GameFAQs' word count requirement if you cut out the trollagraph.
Given that the game is shorter than most other Tales and had to have content cut due to rushing it's not a stretch to imagine why some people may have simply rated it an "average" game.

i dunno who the hell is rating this low. But dude who cares anyway . Its all about what you think that s all that matters. SO why even think about what some editor says. But anyway this games is really incredible i cant put it down. MIght be one the best tales games ive played yet
Any game that has technical issues in its strongest suit - its battle system is going to have issues with score. Not to mention many found Graces battles better and Vesperia's world/content better and you have a game that comes across as sort of a rushed half and half of the other two.
The game is good, certainly not amazing. Solid 7.5 imo.
