Terrible, just terrible.
Bad DLC is sadly all too common in the present gaming market, and nothing exemplifies this more than DLC that is basically just an excuse to shoehorn some microtransactions into a full priced retail game. It was outrageous when a game like Forza Motorsport 5 or Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain did it; that hasn’t changed now either. Which is why the fact that Tales of Zestiria does the same thing is so annoying.
Tales of Zestiria will let you straight up purchase levels, HP, and Experience Points. To anyone who has ever even vaguely encountered an RPG, you probably know that these three are the lifeline of the game- progression in the game is governed by the player trying to maximize these values. Letting players purchase these for real world money, even when it is only optional, cheapens the entire game.
The full list of stat boosters and items in the Adventures Item pack can be seen below.
Tales of Zestiria is available on PS3, PS4, and PC.
