Summary: I remember hearing about this game when it was released in Japan back in 2010 and thinking it looked pretty good, and how disappointed I was when it wasn't going to be released in North America. To my surprise, Nintendo of America actually took a risk and released the game. So was it worth the wait? One look at my ranking should make it obvious.
Summary: Xenoblade Chronicles is well okay, the reason why graphics aren't necessary yet necessary for many who have LCD tv's, the blur and distorted pixels are the reason I hate the wii on lcd, but if it weren't for next gen consoles I would probably like the wii more than i do, the problem is this game would be better on ps3 or xbox360 here's why, The Control pad for starters old school is still the best, the wii-mote is what puts me off from wii games.
Summary: Before the review, I would like to inform you reading this that the game is much cheaper and still available brand new from Game Stop dot com. Do not be fooled by sellers trying to make an extra buck. Now for the review! The entire Xenoblade experience is a breath of fresh of air. Not since the Playstation 2 has there been a more captivating JRPG. Strange that it wound up on the Wii of all systems, but it's probably the only reason why I haven't sold mine yet.
Summary: Xenoblade is a conundrum to review here on AVS, on one hand, we have a higher standard for our visuals, we are the 1%. To review a game that is only 480p on the Wii of all things just seems to defy that. However, Xenoblade is simply too amazing to not review, even with the hardware limitations.
Pros: Vast open world to explore, Fantastic Story, Extraordinary Soundtrack
Summary: As one of the people who signed that petition and pre-ordered it, I'm so glad this game came out! Xenoblade is an amazing game. It's not perfect by any stretch but it does so many things right. The environments are amazing. The areas you explore are huge and rendered in great detail. Whole sections stretch for miles all around with barely any noticeable loading or graphical pop-ins as you move around. The grass, the bushes and the trees all sway in the breeze.
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: 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: 9.5/10 2nd best game on the wii (hard to beat mario galaxy) one of my favorite rpgs in a very long time and a game that shows that jrpgs can still be relevant. Pros: immense immersive story world/universe Unique characters Cool weopans and equipment Unique battle system great jrpg evolution Great voice acting Minimal grinding required Tons to do! Took me 75 hours and hitting up only portion of quests Not a sequal! Rare these days.
Summary: Xenoblade has been one of my most anticipated games since it was announced. As a fan of Xenogears, and many of the other games that Takahashi has worked on, I'm always thrilled to play new games by his team at Monolith. Many of us waited eagerly for an announcement of a localization. I pre-ordered the game and was excited when it finally arrived. That said, 110 hours later, I found that I was forcing myself to try to finish the last few hours of gameplay.
Summary: Amazing game. One of my favourites if all time, and well worth the price, while at first appearing steep, it's well worth even before you're five hours in. Tons of content, a perfect masterpiece.
