Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra

  • Conclusion: Despite the typical localization flaws, fans of the series should be pleased by how seriously Monolith has taken the task of ending the series in a satisfying way. But if you’re new to the series, or are merely a casual fan with hazy memories of the first two installments, Episode III will present some challenges.

Xenosaga Episode III: Also sprach Zarathustra review (PS2)

HonestGamers

  • Excerpt: , and I couldn’t be more pleasantly surprised. But the fighting wasn't what I came for. I came for solid characters and a solid plot held together by a solid science-fiction setting, something that the first two episodes delivered in spades. The finale doesn’t simply meet expectations; it exceeds them in every way.

  • Conclusion: The classic comedic saying that you should always leave 'em wanting more has never rung more true in an RPG. After more than a few missteps, Xenosaga recovers beautifully, and the result is one of the must-have RPGs for the PlayStation 2, without a doubt.

  • Excerpt: Warning: Being a direct sequel, this review contains unavoidable spoilers of Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht and Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Bose The gaming industry has learned an important lesson: unlike television shows and other forms of media, it is a very bad move to announce a multi-part series and expect to bring it to completion. We first learned this with Shenmue, which essentially got canned after two titles.

Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra Review

GameSpot
30 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Monolith Soft's Xenosaga series is noted not only for its wordy German subtitles and lengthy cutscene exposition, but for its hugely complex storyline that's influenced by equal parts science fiction, religion, and myth. The series' first two chapters ended with far more questions and mysteries than they answered or explained, so Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra begins with an almost ludicrous amount of enigmas that need resolving.
  • Pros: Intuitive battle system and well-balanced customization, Great in-battle graphical effects, Characters are all given a fitting sendoff
  • Cons: Story is wrapped up well, but you'll need to constantly reference a database to keep up with it, Obviously edited blood makes a number of scenes completely absurd
