One of the best JRPGs of all-time.Has the JRPG elements many of us love such as creative storytelling and a love story set in a huge MMORPG style world.

Summary: Xenoblade brings the best of JRPGs and open-world style WRPGs together.Like most JRPGs,Xenoblade is story-driven,romance plays a big part in it's story,and it's story is creative and mixes things such as Sci Fi and and mythology together and the character personalities are are a mix of charming but they can be serious when they need to be.Its world is huge and you can spend hours exploring it's world and what makes the exploration fun isn't just the fact the world is...
Faith in RPG's RESTORED! Battle system is AWESOME.

Summary: This IS the best RPG game on the Wii. Yes, the inflated price is unbelievable, but if you can get your hands on this game for $40... do it! This game is simply unbelievable. It blows me away everywhere I go. There are a whole bunch of reviews about how it is clearly directed towards men, but I disagree. Being a woman myself, this game is wonderful. There may seem to be a 'lack of romance' in this game but, the whole first 'push' in the game is because of love...
Summary: I've wanted to play this game for a couple of years now...and I finally got my copy in the mail. Now, I must admit that I've only put about 35 minutes into the game, but my mind has already been blown. There are three key reasons why I feel this way already about Xenoblade: 1) The first thing I noticed was the FANTASTIC voice acting, probably the best in an RPG since Final Fantasy XII..wow, just wow!
Summary: Xenoblade is undoubtedly a great game. It brings me back to my childhood, where I stayed up all hours of the night beating such classics as Final Fantasy 6,7,8,9,10, Chrono Cross, Chrono trigger, the Star Ocean series, the Grandia series, Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits, and the Xenosaga series. The story is deep and satisfying, and it's one of those rare games where you actually feel a little depressed when the credits finally roll across the screen.
A bold, but flawed, vision of what JRPGs can achieve

Summary: Xenoblade Chronicles has easily been the most well-received Japanese RPG on consoles since the modern Persona games helped to send off the PlayStation 2, and itʼs not hard to see why. In an age where critics and fans alike decry the stifling linearity of Final Fantasy XIII and celebrate the vastness of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it seems as though this game was designed to bridge the gap that lies between the two approaches.
Summary: I originally skipped the Wii but I bought the Wii U, primarily to play the upcoming sequel 'X'. Xenoblade's released went under my radar, after hearing from people calling it one of the BEST RPG of this (7th) Console generation, I became intrigued. Graphics: impressive for the Wii, huge environments, solid framerate.
Summary: Let's get one thing out of the way real quick: This game is fantastic. It wouldn't be a stretch to say this is the best title on the wii. However, even the likes of gamestop have stooped so low as to unwrap new copies only to charge 90 dollars for them. The going rate at the time of this review is 220 dollars on amazon. I don't condone illegal actions, but you'll need the homebrew channel if you want to play this treasure.
