Xenosaga Episode II

  • Excerpt: Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Bose has to be one of the most highly anticipated RPGs on the PS2. With a variety of improvements over the original Xenosaga , fans have a lot to look forward to. Jenseits von Gut und Bose is German for “Beyond Good and Evil.” How that relates to the game is yet to be seen. In Episode II , you will contend for control over the Zohar to unravel its mystery, and fight to defeat the Gnosis.

  • Excerpt: Tetsuya Takahashi, along with the old and new members of the Monolith Software staff, continued with the Xenosaga series by releasing Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits Von Gut und Boese (Beyond Good and Evil). Like Der Wille Zur Macht (The Will To Power), this title is a direct allusion to a work of the same name by 19th century German philosopher Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (also spelled "Nietzche").

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Bose (which means beyond good and evil) is the second game in the ambitious Xenosaga series. Arguably more an interactive movie than a game, Episode II throws away all pretenses of being a conventional RPG. The focus here is clearly on the story rather than the game. You could, in fact, take away all the interactive portions of the game and you wouldn’t lose much.

  • Excerpt: Diving back into the story of the first Xenosaga title, Xenosaga II: Jenseits von Gut und Bose (Beyond good and Evil) brings a good experience to the table for those who have just started or continue with the saga. Just to preface, I have not played the previous Xenosaga or Xenogears so I am strictly going to address the game itself and not the story. Perhaps this will bring a fresh and unbiased perspective to both the veteran and amateur Xeno-series gamer.
