Summary: How times have changed! In the halycon SNES and N64 days, Europe was always a bit of a third world when it came to Nintendo games. We suffered extremely long delays in the big N bringing the games to our shores, and sometimes we didn't even get the games at all (I'm looking at you, Super Mario RPG. And don't you get me started, Earthbound!) Fast forward to now, and it's very clear that we've never had it better.
Summary: At Last! A game that holds the same kind of wonder and escapism that came with classics like Final Fantasy VII, VIII and the wonderful Skies of Arcadia. Sone of the most beautiful graphics yet seen on the Wii, and some wonderful music to boot. The amount of sidequests and hunts are keeping me completely occupied and levelling up nicely, and I haven't even bothered carrying on with the story.
Summary: Got this a couple of days ago and I'm hooked already! I think the combat system is very simple to inderstand yet complex to master. The ability to readily change between characters was most welcome with other good features such as a save anywhere feature and the ability to skip between landmarks. This is a huge game as well, lasting you anything from 60 to 100 hours, making for great value for money.
Summary: Having pre-ordered the game for no particular reason other than it sounded a bit different, I am totally immersed. In fact I wish I could have a few days off work! I recieved the game on release date an am pushing near 20 hours play so far. Having played FFXII and loving that, and also FFVII Dirge of Cerberus (PS2) and Diablo II (PC) I am now hooked on RPG. And this is an excellent addition (well until Diablo III...
Summary: What is interesting is that I reviewed this before and my review appears to be removed. Ok, this game is a waste of money. You don't fight in the traditional way by swinging the wii remote to fend of monsters. You quickly choose symbols in your menu screen that trigger your warrior to do a sword move. What stupidity. It's about as exciting as a wet lettuce.
Summary: I ve played all of the Console Zelda Games since Ocarina of Time (Majora's Mask,Four Swords Adv., Wind Waker, Twilight Princess)- except for the handheld ones- and I can say that although Twilight Princess was truly great on Wii, this is actually better. Okami ois va fantastic game, too, and I can't say I'm impressed with any of the FF games except for the Chocobo's Dungeon.
Summary: Xenoblade Chronicles is inn one word brilliant. The best JRPG in years. If you dont have a wii gathering dust under your tv then borrow one or buy one to play this game. This makes all the shovelware and cheap ports dumped on wii look exactly what they where nothing but a cheap cash in. Graphics look exellent. First class story & combat system. Got this on the day of release 3 days later already played more than 10hours.
Summary: Stunning. Simply stunning. If you ever think of your top five or so video games of all time, it is not often a game comes along that can disturb the list. Here is one. Whilst I am only about fifteen hours into the game, I felt I had to write a review as this game needs more positivity.
Summary: Xenoblade-Chronicles is one of those great games that (for some unfathomable reason) Nintendo had initially decided not to release outside Japan. Until recently that is. So, if you live in Europe, count yourself lucky because the best RPG on the Wii is finally available outside Japan, fully translated and reformatted for the European systems. THE MUSIC WILL ENCHANT YOUR SOUL This is the first thing that hits your senses.
