Summary: Xenosaga: episode I is without a doubt a masterpiece of a game. From a Soundtrack by the best of the best to awe inspiring graphics, to the deepest storyline in an RPG since Xenogears. Quite frankly there's not much to say but "Takahashi, you dog. You did it again!
Summary: Make no mistake - the 'Episode one' on the cover of Xenosaga is there for a reason. This game is the first of a 5 part epic, and if the game is any indication, the entire thign is going to be huge.
Summary: Hmm... where to begin? Basically, it's a nicely done RPG with relatively long cinematic sequences. I say relatively long because other adjectives tend to categorize it as a negative, which it's not. I highly enjoyed the cinematics and especially the ending. =] First off, the gameplay is very solid.
Summary: Xenosaga is quite an accomplishment by namco. The highly anticipated prequel to Xenogears. Can more then well carry it's own. This game is like a candy. You have to peel the wrapper off but once you get to the core its nothing but sweet sweet goodness. This game has a slow beginning.
You'll either love it or hate it. I, personally, love it.

Summary: I won't bother going into huge detail; there are a billion reviews here, and I don't want to drone what everyone else has already said. What I mean with my title, though, I suppose I should discuss.
Summary: I have played this game all the way up to the last dungeon/final battle, and I have been impressed. I cannot say that this game is without flaws, because it is not. The music could have been better and I would have liked for it to be a bit longer(or perhaps that is just how much I like it.
Summary: Xenosaga is dramatic, intriguing, and deep in the scope of its storyline. To tell you too much could spoil perhaps the greatest plot ever included in any video game to date. What I can say is that it's set in the distant future, when mankind lives only in deep space.
Summary: Most great games can be summed up in one word: Metal Gear Solid 2 is "mesmerizing." Splinter Cell is "exhilarating." Metroid Prime is "breathtaking." The magnitude of Xenosaga necessitates much more.
