Summary: I had this game for christmas and i am enjoying ever second. The game is beautifully created with wonderful graphics and an epic storyline. The twists and turns of the relationship between the main characters is complex. Exploring mechonis and bionis is a sight to behold. A stunning game for lovers of final fantasy style games.
Summary: I can't begin to describe this game! You play as Shulk as he journeys across the "world" (which is in fact the two corpses of two "gods") with his friends and the mythical weapon the Monado on a quest to destroy the Mechon. The game comes in both Japanese and English and they do vary slightly in terms of language (for example the Mechon are called Keshinhei in Japanese).
Summary: Where do I begin with this game? Let's start off with the storyline: Set on 2 robotic like worlds called Bionis & Mechonis...Shulk who is a young man, seeking the answers & mysteries to the sword called the Monado. He resides with his friends Reyn, Fiora & Dunban in Colony 9 (foot of the Bionis). One day, Colony 6 gets attacked by the Mechon and only from then..
Summary: In this wonderful game there is action, compelling story with a range of characters well enhanced in their particularity and their friendship. It's a fiction but it is not that far from real life. The decisions taken by the characters picture a great sense of humanity on its best expressions of forgivness and sharing to succeed. The world in this game is fantastic, the sound, the graphic, the music and the wideness of the world in each chapter is amazing.
Summary: This game is like a mini-World of WarCraft for solo with a great story and very good characters. Very good graphics and atmosphere for a Wii game, you allways feel small walking on the Titans body. A must have in your Wii game collection.
The best JRPG on the Wii which has a great story and the game world looks beautiful.

Summary: If you only buy one more game before the Nintendo Wii U 32GB Premium Pack - Black comes out then make sure you buy Xenoblade Chronicles because it is a epic game which should not be missed by rpg lovers. The combat system feels very fresh and is easy to master and the story line is very touching which might bring a tear to your eye. The voice acting is most excellent for a game and they have used British isles actors which makes a nice change.
Summary: What starts off as a freshingly deep game, eventually descends into a depressingly long, poorly directed pain. I'm all for value for money, but when the game drags on for so long that it ruins the overall pacing and makes the whole thing feel more like a chore, it's self-defeatist.
Excerpt: "...many of the areas in Xenoblade are freely open you can even earn points for exploring places around the map, which I think is very clever and encourages the player to take the initiative. Just be careful you don’t run into any powerful monsters! To battle, you select a nearby enemy with the ‘Z’ button to bring up its details, then press A for your characters to approach the enemy and begin auto-attacking. Your controlling character’s Arts are displayed ...
Pros: Fantastic gameplay with many unique features, good story, beautiful open - world scenery .
Cons: A few niggles here and there which I've detailed in the review .
Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii): How to make a brilliant RPG!
12 September 2012
Summary: 'Xenoblade Chronicles' is a role-playing and adventure video game released for the Nintendo Wii in 2011. Traditional role-playing games such as this one on the Wii tend to be very rare, which I believe is due to the family/casual nature of the console (RPGs usually being single-player, story-driven experiences). However, in space of about eight months the Wii was blessed with three Japanese RPGs (a release which North America for once had to fight for, but I digress).
Pros: Fantastic gameplay with many unique features, good story, beautiful open-world scenery.
Cons: A few niggles here and there which I've detailed in the review.
