It reeeally reeeally sucks!!
10 March 2010
Summary: The first xenosaga game's budget was at like 100%, and they cranked out a heck of a good game. However, when it came to the second xenosaga game, (this one), it's like they only got a 25% budget, and they cranked out a ..... well.... a piece of crap game. From the way the characters look, to the way they sound, it's pretty corny. The level designs and music totally sucks, and the battle system will leave you saying, "W-T-F!?
Summary: If anyone enjoyed the entry that was Xenosaga (part one) the character design, story, gameplay and music would stand out first in your mind. The voice acting was spot on, although many say that MOMO was annoying to begin with. I enjoyed the leveling up and appreciated each character's diverse weaponry. I love the lengthy cut scenes and the cliffhanger ending with the re-entry into Second Milita. Xenosaga II however, should expound on all of these things and more...
Summary: After sludging through this game, it's pretty easy to see why the 5 games announced were reduced to 3. Honestly, I can't believe that the series got the funding to wrap things up after this. This "game" just fails in every possible respect. From the clunky battle system, to the ridiculously over-thought skills tables, and even the so-called plot, the whole thing is a convoluted, nearly unplayable mess.
