Xenosaga (PS2)

ccgr.org
26 August 2003
  • Excerpt: Xenosaga is a console Role Playing Game(RPG) with loose ties to the Xenogear?s game. Square released Xenogears, and Namco has released the Xenosaga game. You control a party of characters from one to three in a Final Fantasy style of battles. The setting is sci-fi with space ships traveling from different planets. Do not however think you will get to see an entire planet; more like a block in a city. The game starts innocently with a 2001: A Space Odyssey style.

Into Liquid Sky

  • Excerpt: Xenosaga is the spiritual prequel to Squaresoft's Xenogears - a hefty, epic RPG whose story was so deep and convoluted that it wore out even the hardiest of RPGers. Now with Namco, the development team has taken this "reimagined" universe and created a game similar in style and concept, while telling a new narrative which will lay the groundwork for forthcoming sequels.
  • Pros: Immense story, Fine battle system, Lots of customization, Xenocard and A.G.W.S. Battle are great diversions
  • Cons: Story may be too much for casual gamers, Longer in-game loading than normal, Inconsistent use of music

Just RPG
24 May 2003
  • Excerpt: Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht , the first in a series of “prequels” to the cult classic Xenogears was one of the year’s most eagerly awaited games. Xenogears fans, like me, have been dying to play this game since long before it was ever announced, and with so much hype, can it possibly live up to the expectations? Why, yes it can, and yes it has!

  • Excerpt: How long has it been since we’ve seen a truly hardcore RPG? Who here remembers Xenogears? Final Fantasy Tactics? Chrono Trigger? Final Fantasy 6? There’s a certain breed of gamer that needs a serious game, something that‘s long and well-built, something taking serious dedication, something that can truly engage even the most seasoned gamer. In Xenosaga these gamers will find a gem.

  • Summary: В заглавии каждого эпизода не зря стоит название одной из книг Фридриха Ницше — на протяжении всего сценария можно найти немало отсылок к его работам, классическим произведениям мировой литературы и даже Библии. Здесь нет положительных или отрицательных героев, нет понятий "хорошо" и "плохо". Каждый руководствуется своими мотивами и его действия полностью оправданы, даже если они противоречат всем моральным устоям.

  • Conclusion: Mit Xenosaga erwartet euch wirklich ein spitzen Game. Ein Rollenspiel der Extraklasse mit einer Mischung aus Fantasy und Science-Fiction. Es behauptet sich in allen Punkten, sei es nun die Story, der Sound, die Grafik oder gar die Steuerung. Der Vorgänger Xenogears, zog einen schon in seinen Bann und hatte eine der besten Storys überhaupt zu bieten. Jedoch gab es Xenogears nur als Import Version, da es hierzulande nie zu einem Europa Release gekommen ist.
