Is Abyss like Vesperia?

I wanted to get into Tales so I played Vesperia and really didn't like it. Not trying to start a war here, it just felt like it took all of the annoying aspects of anime and ramped them up x 10.

I'm guessing I should stay away from Abyss? Or is Abyss a bit better?

Personally, I found Vesperia to be the best Tales of game, but other people will disagree. Really every Tales of game has its charm, and if you don't like one, chances are you'll like a different one instead. Also, how far did you make it into Vesperia? The game changes 3 times lol

I finished Vesperia but it was a few years ago so my memory is a bit foggy. I liked certain aspects of it, specifically Yuri becoming an anti-hero figure and murdering various people.

Vesperia is my favorite. Not sure about Abyss.

More or less... but Abyss came out before Vesperia and has an annoying bit(at least for me) of not having skits voiced.

here's how i see it.
vesperia harder but the plot is weaker
the characters are better overall but game is a little shorter.

compared to abyss.

They're my favorite two entries in the series but if you don't like the anime-ish aspects of them then you aren't going to like any of the games in my opinion.

Abyss is my favorite. Vesperia my second favorite. You'll like almost every tales game if you like one tales game. Trust me.
