Summary: This is a brilliant RPG for the Wii. Gamers who have played a lot of RPGs might find this similar to Final Fantasy 12, which is great for me, since I actually loved FF12. Set after a time of peace between Homs (humans) and Mechon (mecha), the colony comes under attack from the Mechon. Two great titans battled endlessly in a valley, one Bionis fighting for the Hom, and one Mechonis, fighting for the Mechon.
Pros: Long game, engaging storyline, pleasant battle system
Cons: Voice acting is a bit cheesy, some actions are a little fiddly to carry out.
Summary: Slight spoilers ahead Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii) Story Xenoblade Chronicles begins as so many JRPGs do ...in a small peaceful town with the hero not really knowing where he is originally from and then suddenly everything that he holds dear is destroyed by mysterious metal clad beings... in that simple principle it holds its charm for setting up the beginning of a truly massive adventure filled with love and revenge.
Summary: The end of Wii is aproaching, but in its last pulse of life, it's giving us some of the best games of its catalogue. Xenoblade it's a clear example of that: a good RPG and a good game. Give it a try.
Summary: I'm writing this a bit prematurely as I've only racked up 7 hours of gameplay so far, but I feel good enough about this game already to add a comment or two. Apologies if its disjointed or badly spelt but I'm typing it on my phone. Initially the fmv graphics seem poor, around the level of a ps2 rpg, although we do know the wii isn't primarily focused in graphics anyway.
Summary: This is a must play for all wii owners... this is even better than the rpgs the PS3 and Xbox has... beautiful and open world combined with an amazing story plus the phenomenal music, this is without doubt the best JPRG of this generation cross console...

Summary: One of the best JRPGs I've played this generation. Music is brilliant, story holds up, content keeps you entertained for 40-100 hours and is well worth any rpg lovers time. For my full in depth opinion, check out my video review! Hope it helps! [...
Summary: I've played a few RPG's in my time but I have to say that none have grabbed me like this game. After 10 hours or so of a game I generally tend to get bored. This game however keeps your interest as the environments are constantly changing. The characterisation is brilliant and the game has a bit of a star wars feel about it with different races such as the nopons, telethia etc.
A light-hearted, vibrant and colossal scifi/fantasy-RPG that earns it's place among the great RPG stars and an RPG fans heart

Summary: Having played all the previous Xeno games, although they we're mostly decent, but not superb.. Xenoblade managed to push the mark a league or two higher than it's predecessors. It contains all the vital organs of an RPG, tension-building story roller coaster that starts timid but makes you suck your gut in by the end. A combat system that is unique in that you move freely on the battlefield, while choosing your abilities from a menu as per RPG law.
