The Saga Continues

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: In alternativa: I giochi che si possono consigliare in alternativa a Xenosaga II sono molti: In primis sono da elencare Xenosaga episode I che è una vera perla di cinematograficità e l’ultimo episodio, quel meraviglioso Xenosaga III . In seguito troviamo i vari Shin Megami Tensei , Grandia 2-3 , Final fantasy XII , Valkirye Profile: Silmeria e la serie Atelier Iris . Per finire, non dimentichiamo il capostipite della serie ormai leggendaria: Xenogears !
  • Pros: Colonna sonora (movie scene) da Oscar., DVD extra con filmati Xenosaga I., Trama molto bella...
  • Cons: ...ma che dura poco e incentrata su pochi elementi., Battle System con potenzialità non sfruttate., Character Design peggiorato., Caricamenti lunghi.

  • Conclusion: Joli, mais pas époustouflant graphiquement, jouable, mais pas révolutionnaire, Xenosaga épisode II : Jenseits von Gut und Böse surprend surtout par son scénario très poussé et ses personnages tourmentés, même si sa grande difficulté est là pour pimenter ce qui en définitive tient peut-être moins du jeu vidéo que de la série animée japonaise.
  • Pros: Scénario cosmique, Personnages attachants, Joli dans l'ensemble
  • Cons: Musique plus que moyenne, Difficile, Un peu court

Xenosaga Episode II (PS2)

  • Conclusion: Obbiettivo di Monolith Software, piaccia o meno, rimane sempre quello di raccontare; ed ecco che il substrato narrativo di “Jenseits von Gut und Bose” non si distacca da quello con cui i creativi (ora sotto egida Namco) si sono resi celebri. Non è ahinoi presente quell'ideale armonia fra scelte dei narratori ed azione concessa ai giocatori (una disarmonia comunque non abissale come quella di “Der Wille Zur Macht”), sebbene vada citato l'impegno con cui si è fatto...

  • Excerpt: Second épisode d'une série dirigée et intensément réfléchie par Testuya Takahashi (le père de Xenogears), Xenosaga Jenseits Von Gut Und Böse semblait définitivement réfractaire à traverser les flots et les esprits pour accéder jusqu'à nous. Pourtant, suite à un miracle auquel personne ne s'attendait, voici que débarque ce titre atypique, dans un quasi anonymat particulièrement gênant.
