Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht review (PS2)

HonestGamers

  • Excerpt: KOS-MOS is…different. Hot anime chicks are a staple in the RPG genre; it’s a given that every quest to save the world will include a scantily dressed, well endowed, fetish themed, supermodel stand-in at some point. The Tifas, the Millennias, the Lulus.

  • Excerpt: A lot of words come to mind when playing Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht; amazing, beautiful, and unbelievable being the most recurring expressions. The team who developed the excellent Xenogears on the PS1 is the same party responsible for churning out this remarkable RPG, and from boot up...

  • Excerpt: Metal Gear Solid has a lot to answer for. Every publisher seemingly has a stealth title on its release list, or has a game with a bizarrely placed stealth section on the shelves already.

  • Excerpt: I'll start off by saying that Monolith's first title, Xenosaga Episode 1: Der Wille Zur Macht a prequel to Squaresoft's Xenogears , lives up to the hype. This series looks like it may have the potential to compete with Final Fantasy , once they polish it up a bit.

  • Excerpt: It is well known (among diehard RPG fans) that MonolithSoft is composed of some of the key talent that worked on SquareSoft’s Xenogears. When MonolithSoft announced they were working on a title called Xenosaga, everyone immediately thought sequel.

The Next Level

  • Excerpt: I'm still a bit undecided about the overall look, differentiating the technically good from the visually pleasing. On one hand, it has some of the better character models to grace the PS2, each sporting plenty of detail with some of the best-rendered hair to grace any game.

  • Excerpt: During the past 5 years, since Final Fantasy VII made RPGs a worldwide obsession, we've seen countless games try to replicate the success of the legendary series from Square. Very few, if any, were of the same caliber as Final Fantasy, however.

Xenosaga Episode 1: Der Wille zur Macht

neXGam
13 September 2012
  • Summary: In den frühen Tagen der PS2 war es das von vielen am sehnlichst erwartete PS2-Rollenspiel. Doch ein PAL-Release  blieb aus. Stattdessen mussten PS2 RPG Spieler auf den US-Import von Xenosaga: Der Wille zur Macht zurückgreifen.
  • Pros: RPG mit komplexer Story, Genialer Soundtrack, Klasse Kampfsystem
  • Cons: US-Fassung geschnitten, Stark linear

  • Conclusion: In alternativa: In alternativa al primo episodio, sono consigliati gli altri due episodi della saga (il secondo è stato quasi un flop, mentre il terzo è un gioiello di game design). Poiché i due titoli menzionati sono nella trama collegati fra loro, è sconsigliabile giocare un singolo episodio.
  • Pros: Ottima trama con spunti filosofici., Perfetta caratterizzazione dei personaggi., Ottima realizzazione tecnica., Buon doppiaggio in inglese., Character design magistrale.
  • Cons: A tratti ripetitivo e frustrante., Non disponibile la versione PAL., Poche battle theme., Sub quest non appaganti.
