Great story, great controls, but far from perfect.

Summary: First of all, I love the story of this game. The game drew me in and made me care about most of the characters more than most games do. Everything is coherent and told in a great way. The plot develops in a great way. If going by the story alone, this would be one of my absolute favorite games of all time, and I have been video gaming since the early 90s. While it misses the mark due to some other things I will discuss in this review, it is still a good game.
Summary: JRPG's are to big in this generation. People seem to like to insult them even is the game is good (also half of the people never played one). Xenoblade Chroincles is the game that help the two thing that get dissed the most (the WII and JRPG). the games story is great and have some very good plot twist. The game isnt the best looking game but it still looks preety good and the design is amazing with its great imagination that helps the story structure.
Summary: I have to begin with some information about the release of this game. This game was originally released in Japan on June 10th, 2010. It took a lot of effort to finally get this game released in the USA. Credit goes to a few sources such as Operation Rainfall to help rally support, Gamestop for help funding the release (more on that later), and Nintendo of America for finally publishing this game for North America.
Summary: Combat is easy to pick up. overall graphics are great. character models are below par however. but that's my only reservation. basically a japanese equivilent of Skyrim for wii owners. i've easily sunk over 70 hours into it and i'm not even close to done yet. so much to explore and do. MUST BUY!!!
Summary: With everything from interesting steampunk style machines and weapons, to a large cast of interesting and diverse heroes, to a sword just as memorable as the Masamune, this is the first RPG I've played where I felt like I was playing an RPG unique and refreshing and original as the one and only Chrono Trigger...
Summary: Found a copy at a local store, and I'm glad I got it. After Arc Rise Phantasia, I didn't think I'd ever risk a Nintendo rpg again, but I gave them one more chance with this game. I am GLAD I did. It's like the J-RPG equivalent of Skyrim, with positively huge open worlds and a very well implemented quest system. I've spent 5 hours on the first stage just doing quests.
Summary: As one of the people who signed that petition and pre-ordered it, I'm so glad this game came out! Xenoblade is an amazing game. It's not perfect by any stretch but it does so many things right. The environments are amazing. The areas you explore are huge and rendered in great detail. Whole sections stretch for miles all around with barely any noticeable loading or graphical pop-ins as you move around. The grass, the bushes and the trees all sway in the breeze.
Summary: The title is just my opinion, but it deffinately is what I think every time I start up my wii. I purchased a wii for my deployment for some simple fun and as I was shopping I saw this game as a gamestop exclusive, it had me curious. so I did some research and came to find this game would be what I would waste most of my free time in this deployment on! it brings me back to my PS2 days when FFXII came out.
Summary: To call this game a JRPG is to dismiss Star Trek as just a regular sci fi show, or to call Lord of the Rings just another book about elves. It is the genre defining game of it's generation, and many more games will taking influence from it for years to come. The game follows the story of Shulk, one of the few people who can wield the powerful sword, the Monado.
