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.

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.

  • Summary: 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.
  • 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.

  • Summary: It's only been a little over a year since Tales of Graces F was released for the PS3, so it's kind of surprising, and impressive that Tales of Xillia was released so soon. Though we're about two years behind since the Japanese release, I'm happy that another game in the long standing franchise is...

(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.

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.
  • Pros: +Fun Combat, +Great Characters
  • Cons: -Subpar Graphics, -Rehashed Environments
