Three things that make Xenoblade Chronicles an RPG you must play

Quarter to Three
19 April 2012
  • Excerpt: One of the biggest liabilities Xenoblade Chronicles has to deal with is that it’s a JRPG. The first letter in that acronym comes with a lot of baggage that will deter many people who enjoyed Skyrim, Mass Effect, and The Witcher. It’s also only on the Wii, and only available from Gamestop.

Xenoblade Chronicles Review

G4
12 April 2012
  • Summary: Xenoblade Chronicles is the sort of precious jRPG that this recent console generation has sorely lacked. Despite some missteps and over-complication, the game stands out as one of the best in recent years. Xenoblade creates a world simply begging to be explored.
  • Pros: Easily among the best looking Wii games out there, Unparalleled, massive environments create a living, breathing world, Spectacular value…even a barebones run should take a minimum of sixty hours, Soundtrack is diverse, varied, and beautiful
  • Cons: The final third of the game's environments fall off in quality, beauty, and exploration, Sidequests are largely uninspired and trivial, Many aspects of the game's underlying systems are poorly explained

  • Cons: Muddy textures on the Wii, Story takes a long time to get going

Xenoblade Chronicles

Nintendo World Report
4 April 2012
  • Summary: I didn't expect to give such a high score to a game I originally knew so little about. Then again, I didn't expect to play one of the best RPGs of the last ten years, either.
  • Pros: Accessible, Fantastic combat system, Great soundtrack and good voice acting, Incredible storytelling, Vast exploration
  • Cons: Below-average visuals, Some grinding is not totally out of the question, Story can get a bit convoluted in a few parts

After all the brouhaha over Nintendo’s lack of commitment to the game’s localization, is it better late than never for Xenoblade,...

  • Excerpt: Xenoblade Chronicles is a game of many contradictions. It is, at its heart, a traditional Japanese Role Playing Game (JRPG) in the truest sense of the term. The West has fallen out of love with the genre in recent years, preferring the post-apocalyptic desolateness of the Vault and its surroundings...

  • Excerpt: Xenoblade Chronicles defines the concept of creativity. It is creative in reviving a genre that has become repetitive, it is creative in its scope, and it is creative in the twists the narrative so boldly chooses to take.
