Summary: You probably know that this is a Japanese RPG. If you're into gaming at all, you already know whether or not you like those games. So you're here, you're looking at this game, you're probably into RPGs, and maybe you're not entirely sure if you want to invest to buy this game. But you know you're interested, and I'm here to persuade you. And this, being a game on the Nintendo Wii, I can predict two major enquiries from any potential buyer.
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.
Summary: I'd be the first to say that I don't have much experience with RPGs as a genre, so I admit I felt a little apprehensive when this game first arrived on my doorstep. Would I be able to handle it, I wondered, or was this yet another impulse buy which would end up gathering dust on my already packed shelves.
Summary: WARNING: This is the German language edition of the game.

Looking for Wii based swashbuckling? DON'T buy this game!

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: 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.
