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.

  • 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 So, how many Xenosaga fans are out there, reading this review? I'm assuming that if you are reading this review, you're a fan, waiting desperately to find out whether the last installment of the series is worth purchasing or waiting for (or even playing at all!). Well, the bird has the word: go get it.

  • 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: Although it was originally planned to span across six games, Monolith Software's Xenosaga series came to a surprise ending with the release of Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra. In order to answer all of the lingering questions that the first two titles left us wondering, you can rest assured knowing that this release is packed with tons of cinematics and plot driven dialog to finish off one of the most engaging storylines in video game history.

  • Excerpt: Noted in the original article as “one of our most awaited RPGs of the year on any system”… really? Anyway, cough cough, delusional commentary aside, the third Xenosaga is finally coming. Set enough time aside for the long cutscenes and make sure you have your snack and drink of choice ready, you’ll need it. Have you been wondering about KOS-MOS’s legend? Shion? The Invasion of Gnosis (not the Gnosis from Star Wars though)? No? Me neither, and yet here we are… lucky us.
