Summary: Big Xenosaga and Xenogears fan here. I've always raved about these two games, especially Xenogears and Xenosaga III and I considered importing a Japanese Wii just to play this game, but just didn't have enough moola. Well I finally got around to buying a Wii just to play this game, and when I first popped this game in and played it, whew! Hearing the Mechonis battle music was amazing. The gameplay, I was a little disappointed in.
Summary: When I was first told about this game I was very excited. It looked great, had tons of content and was on the Wii. In essence it is a very good game but there were several problems with it I noticed at the beginning. First, the good news. The voice acting and story are stellar! I thought the various british voices were well done and perfectly fit the characters in the story. Second, the battles are excellent.
Summary: THIS GAME IS MORE SIMILAR TO STAR OCEAN THAN TO XENOGEARS OR XENOSAGA; THE STORY IS NOT ORIGINAL IS A MIX OF ALREADY KNOWN STORIES, THE GAMEPLAY IS TOO MUCH MMORPG AND NOT DEEP INTO THE STORY, THE GAME IS GOOD AT BEST, BUT BORING, IS LIKE KILL MONSTERS IN AREA THEN KILL MORE MONSTERS IN AREA, THEN AGAIN, THE STORY STARTS TO UNFOLD AFTER 50+ HOURS OF GAME. IF U ARE EXPECTING A XENOGEARS U R WRONG IS A GOOD COMMON NOT GREAT NOT LEGENDARY JRPG.
Summary: The game is great, lots of sidequests, and the world is huge. I just have two problems with it, some sidequest are tedious and when played on an HDTV the graphics become a little jagged (it's a wii game after all, not prepared for HD). Other than those 2 things the game is awsome clearly my favourite game from Operation Rainfall. The delivery taked a while, but just the usual for my country. The package was correctly conditioned. I Recomend.
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: 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! [...
Excerpt: "...on gaming for some time. Xenoblade Chronicles is a fine example of such a game and one of the best RPG titles on the Wii, something that Nintendos latest console is very short on to be fair. The game is set in a war between two tribes in a mystical world with you taking one side, the “good” side of the battle. The story is quite good actually set up well and makes you feel involved. Very rare is it that a RPG has the story to match ...
Summary: Plenty of reviews on here already, and I have little to add, as I agree with the majority of them - Xenoblade is a real treat, and good value, providing over 100 hours of gameplay. That it does this by presenting hundreds of monster-slaying, widget-fetching and talking sidequests is a fair point, and it can feel a bit like an endless set of small tasks at times.
Conclusion: Ever since seeing the teaser trailers a year or so ago I thought Xenoblade would only get a release in Japan. How shocked I was to see it getting a release date for Europe and not even in the US!
