Summary: Xenosaga Episode III captures everything that is great about the series, and makes it better. Beginning with the combat system; it is easily the most fluid of the entire series. The refined Ether drive system and E.S. combat systems are fantastic. It adds a whole new dimension to the game, in how you approach combat and how you approach leveling up specific characters. The true glory of this series, however, lies in the storytelling.
Summary: I only have two complaints, and they are shared by quite a few people. One is that it ends this great series (I really wanted more) and two being that Shion is so whiny that I can't stand using her. But it's okay, everyone else is more than enough to get through the game. There is more customization of the E.S.'s and some interesting boos battles. Not too many side quests, but a certain one is the end result of the others.
Summary: Xenosaga III is definitely the best game of a very good series. The only thing I was a little disappointed to see was the lack of movie cutscenes, and instead the use of text boxes (due to financial constraints). Nevertheless, it is still a superior game and definitely a must for RPGers.
Summary: Third installment of the Xenosaga series, can't wait to finish it and experience the final act of this amazing trilogy. Truly a work of art with excellent characters and music. Xenosaga is a definite buy for all the jrpg fans out there.
Summary: I love this whole series. Yes, there are some long movie sequences but they are awesome! I've played all 3 in the series and I like this one best by far. My husband and I think that they should make a movie out of the series, except that it would probably be butchered....
Summary: The only problem that I had with the game was the fact that the original composer who did the music for the first xenosaga game didn't compose the music for this game. The music in this game is good, and definately got the job done, but the guy who composed the music for xenosaga 1 is waaayyy better. Other than that, solid charaters, good battle system, decent graphics, all makes this a pretty good game to play.
Summary: Pros: Interesting plot, memorable characters, memorable locations, great music, great graphics, good voice acting, fun battle system(s), satisfying sidequests, fast load times, great ending, no loose ends Cons: The story is at times "told" rather than "shown" (probably because this series was supposed to be 6 games originally.) You will be constantly toyed with by Xenogears allusions, though any connection between the two never consolidates.
Summary: Before I begin, I would like to point out this is Samuel Rowe's review not Donna's. This is coming from a gamer who reviews games all the time. Shion and KOS-MOS return for their latest adventure and oh how they have been missed in their best showdown yet. Xenosaga Episode 3 takes place after the second installment; an epic story brought down by mediocre gameplay. I will not spoil much but I truly believe this is the best of the 3 in story and gameplay.
Summary: Xenosaga 3, a game that eluded me found for a hefty price at Amazon.com. Was it worth it oh yeah not onlt did it complete my series but The RPG elements were all there. Xenosaga 2 was good but not great. This game made my jaw drop when i first played it. I was hooked on it from the start and all I can say is that this game gave everything you wanted from a series. Though the original series was suppose to be 6 parts long part 3 answered all questions.
