Tales of Xillia

Auracore MediaWorks

  • Summary: Tales of Xillia brings you into a beautiful world, but feels like it could use more.
  • Pros: New linking system; characters with differentc combat mechanics; visually appealing world;
  • Cons: Some cringe-worthy dialogue; lack of mechanics makes some gameplay feel lifeless; if I hear 'sharing is caring' one more time I'm going to go postal.

  • Summary: Tales of Xillia is a great fantasy game that unifies human experience and emotion with something outlandish and otherworldly. Despite the monsters, aliens, magic and the mythology of a world totally unlike your own, the main draw in this game is finding within all of that chaos, something relatable...
  • Pros: A rich world with many great characters. A fun battle system that provides enough strategy to never become stale. Plenty of side-quests that never become too tedious. Fun mini-interactions during gameplay help break up the monotony of traveling through various fields and dungeons.
  • Cons: At times gameplay is a little too simple, and overall, Tales of Xillia can serve to be a bit more challenging. Rewards are nice but at times can serve no real purpose.

  • Conclusion: It has been a couple of years since I’ve dived into the world that is “Tales Of”.

VGChartz
25 August 2013
  • Excerpt: The Tales series of JRPGs has always been just on the cusp of being amazing. The battles are interesting, the skits wonderful and often hilarious time wasters, and really the only thing keeping the series from standing toe to toe with the best of the best like the Persona series is the presentation.
