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.

Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Bose

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.

  • Excerpt: While Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht (The Will to Power) was generally regarded as one of the best RPGs available for current hardware platforms, it also quickly earned a reputation among fans for what was generally considered tedious and boring gameplay. With Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Boese (Beyond Good and Evil), Monolith Software did not only tune the battle system, but also changed the main characters' visual style and the way the story is...

  • Excerpt: Apparently the people behind Xenosaga are frustrated Anime creators, because they seem to have wanted to do an Anime TV Series instead of a video game when they made Xenosaga Episode I & II. How so? How about a game that has cutscenes that sometimes last FOREVER and EVER, with scene after scene that just seem to drag on and on! Everytime you think the cutscene ends ANOTHER cutscene rolls, then another, and another, and another… etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc!!
