Summary: If you liked Final Fantasy XII and wished it had continued, heres your chance. Sadly this game seems set to fly under the radar due to a lack of enthusiasm by the Eu Publishers *sigh*. The game is an action/rpg. It has loads of different weapons, Armour, equipment power up crystals and many more things to collect. Many different enemies. A huge skill and upgrade tree. An engaging main quest and multiple side quests.
Summary: First off, I warn you... You have to be willing to play for a good 1 and a half, at least. The start of the game was a bit dull to me, I found myself pretty bored but I have a "5 hour" limit for games, I play at least 5 hours before deciding to go on or not... This game got completely and utterly amazing in an instant. The battle system is annoying TO START WITH but you get used to it very quickly, it's not for the unskilled! You have to think about your every move.
If you enjoyed Final Fantasy X, DO NOT MISS THIS GAME !!!!

Summary: I bought this game hoping that it would provide an original epic story, and it totaly did. the story seems to be amazing, the (overworld map) idea is amazing. the battle system is engaging, you don't need to learn so many skills to start formulating tactics. the skills and arts learning system is beautifully complicated, not too simple not too hard.... simply PERFECT. the side quests are more fun to do, since you can earn EXP through them and actually level up.
Summary: Quite simply it's the best RPG of the generation, going back a whole decade. I'm 110 hours into the game and still have a fair bit left until I finish the story (incl. Endgame content) The game mixes strong characters/story of a Final Fantasy title with the vastness and exploration quality of an MMORPG, topped with a lovely style, stunning cinematic cutscenes (comparable to a Metal Gear Solid title) and a beautiful soundtrack. It's absolutely peerless in ambition.
Summary: Initially gave this one a pretty bad review. Having played it a bit more I would actually say its fairly decent, but by no means deserving of 5 stars. The whole dynamic of the game is compelling, but the exploration is too linear and story driven and battles can be difficult to manage. Also, instead of "clearing" a dungeon, there is a lot of ducking and dodging and running away from the stronger monsters which is a bit annoying. And then there are the bosses...
Summary: I really used to love RPGs - I've been playing them since the days of the Sega Master system. Perhaps it's a sign of getting old, but I'm finding that most modern RPGs are just unplayable now. I should have liked this game - everyone else has - but after just a few hours, and after wiping several times, I've given up in disgust. Visually, it's late PS2 era but it does look nice: sweeping vistas, lush vegetation, plenty of detail and so on.
Summary: Oh my God... This game... this game right here? This may very well be the best JRPG of the last decade, if not longer! I'm not usually one for hyperbole, but Xenoblade is nothing short of a masterpiece in what it accomplishes by taking ever more outdated feeling JRPG conventions and breathing new life into them by providing a game that is engrossing, fun, stuffed to the gills with things to do and a genuinely well put together story that SOUNDS like it checks all the...
Summary: What a great game!! In my opinion, a combination of 'Monster Hunter 3' and 'Zelda' and recommendations don't come more highly than that!! Buy it and you won't be disappointed. Have fun out there..................
