Tales of Xillia

Auracore MediaWorks
24 December 2013
  • 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.

Eh-Xillia-Rating

GIN
25 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Tales of Xillia is the thirteenth entry in the somewhat popular Tales franchise, a series well known for campy plots focused on character development and intricate, combo based combat. Tales of Xillia is no departure from this concept as the battle system has been expanded yet again and for the better, this time forming a system of combat that is deep enough for the unskilled as well as those who prefer a challenge.

  • Excerpt: Tales of Xillia is the latest in the long running and highly successful (at least in Japan) “Tales of” series. It offers another quality Japanese action-RPG experience with a fun battle system, good quality graphics and environments, some decent characters and a reasonable plot that doesn’t descend into too much melodrama. It’s one downfall for me is how easy everything is, it’s a bit like autopilot.

Tales of Xillia Review

DailyGame
8 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Tales of Xillia is a Japanese RPG in every possible way, from its anime style and focus on characters to its progression system and occasional quirkiness. It also happens to have been played in Japan for more than two years, as the game is only now releasing in America. But while calling Tales of Xillia “new” may be a slight misstatement, it’s not inaccurate to call the game entertaining, if not a bit derivative.

  • Conclusion: It has been a couple of years since I’ve dived into the world that is “Tales Of”. Which the gameplay mechanics and avenues of story-telling have evolved, the true essence of the experience remains the same. Tales of Xillia is a joyous experience that’s chalked full of heart and soul. Each character has his or her unique story that’s part of the greater experience.

  • Excerpt: To date, I have now reviewed five of the Tales games with the new Tales of Xillia being the most recent. So far, they have ranged in score from an 89 to a 99 out of 100, which shows that I really like how the series is constructed. Tales of Xillia is no exception to this rule. From the very beginning, I was addicted to the story and determined to find out what was going on.

Tales of Xillia Review

GameSpot
28 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Namco Bandai's Tales series of role-playing games has had a long, strange, on-again-off-again existence outside of Japan, with the series being localized in bursts only to subside in years-long lulls. Fortunately for fans, the series seems to be back in on-again mode, starting with the Tales of the Abyss 3DS rerelease and last year's Tales of Graces f for the PlayStation 3.
  • Pros: Gorgeous visual style, Engaging, endearing central cast, Fast, fun action-based combat
  • Cons: Confusing story that practically requires two playthroughs, Shop upgrade system and lack of dungeons dampen exploration

Tales of Xillia (PS3) - Review

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. Tales of Xillia is another great entry in the series.
