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.

Tales of Xillia

  • 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.

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.

(PlayStation 3 Review) Tales of Xillia

The Entertainment Depot
20 August 2013
  • Summary: Tales of Xillia is that rare combination of a role-playing game that’s both action packed and genuinely funny. Some of its best bits are tucked away behind optional dialogue events, but little effort is required to enjoy some of the strangest, funniest dialog in the series. While the environments might look dated and the interactions a little stiff, and the final boss making for a painful ender, the rest is a top-notch traditional offering that fans of the genre should...

An Adventurous Tale | Tales of Xillia Review

New Gamer Nation
20 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Even with subpar graphics and rehashed environments, those are only a few flaws in an otherwise fun game. The story may not be the most amazing, but it certainly isn’t bad. The characters are all endearing in their own ways and the dialog is spectacular. You’ll easily try and find every conversation this game includes to hear the characters interact as much as possible. By far, the best part of this game is the combat. It never gets old or feels repetitive.
  • Pros: +Fun Combat, +Great Characters
  • Cons: -Subpar Graphics, -Rehashed Environments

Tales of Xillia PS3 Review

  • Conclusion: Tales of Xillia Image © Namco Bandai Perhaps this is more important to convey than anything else – fans of the “Tales of” series, those for whom this game was designed love it. There’s almost universal praise for this title and, as mentioned, it’s broken sales records and spawned a sequel. I would generally avoid telling you to listen to others but, as I said, I’m not the target audience for this game and they seem to be over-the-moon about it.
