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: From the moment I started playing this game, I knew it would be amazing. As a kid I have never played a hardcore rpg game. The only rpg's I have played were pokemon and spectrobes. Because of that I am not a very strategic player, but this game near the end made me feel like I have been playing rpg's for years. If you're not a fan of linearity then look no further as this game lets you explore even places you aren't supposed to go to yet.
Summary: Don't get me wrong, this is a great game for the Wii (if you like JRPG's) But is it that rare. Why is there 12 stores in a 25 mile radius of my small city with copies available, 7 of which have multiply copies? (Not shown as low stock.) Even after playing it, I would NOT pay more then 30 dollars to play. There are cheaper, great JRPG's on the Wii. But if you feel you have to try this game use a classic controller.
Summary: I just learnt that it was $90 for brand new one. luckily for me I still have mines and I got it for $35 only. in mint condition too. but the game is so badass. its so good that I got confused from the storyline from it being the last boss but not being the last boss. and so many sidequests that it keeps u on ur toes to continue playing it. I played over 90 hrs of it before I decided to beat it. and im at lvl 86 I believe since I haven't played it for almost a year now.
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.
Summary: Xenoblade Chronicles is a must buy for wii or wii u owners,with its fantastic gameplay, excellent graphic,and a amazing story it truly is a must buy, i just hope they reimage it to take advantage of the wii u so it can be up for game of the year..
