Xenoblade Chronicles Review: In the desolate world of RPGs. One title stands tall.
Posted by The Gaming Angel
With the lack of true RPG’s in the gaming market today fans have lost hope of playing a shining title that is stand alone. Well thanks to Monolith and Gamestop, fans in North America will be able to enjoy a title that is truly unique and memorable. Xenoblade Chronicles is an exclusive title for the Nintendo Wii that is only available at Gamestop. To those of you out there who shunned the Wii and sold your console, you will surely be kicking yourself for doing so. It’s sad that such an amazing title is only available on a system that is nearing the end of it’s lifecycle, but at least it’s here for fans to play and ultimately cherish.
Graphics: This may possibly be the only thing that critics may have an issue with. While Monolith does a great job of pushing the Wii to it’s limits, Xenoblade Chronicles still looks like a Playstation 2 title in terms of graphics. This shouldn’t stop people from playing this title unless you’re a person who judges on polish alone. Score: 8/10
Gameplay: This is one area where Xenoblade truly stands supreme. Fans of Final Fantasy 12 will jump for joy with the amazingly innovative and easy to use combat system. The mechanics are very similar to Final Fantasy 12. There is a TON of things to do in this game as the sidequests are robust in numbers. From the moment you turn on Xenoblade, the amazing story will keep you on your chair until the very end. Score: 9.5/10
Sound: Another attribute of Xenoblade that fans will notice is the beautiful musical score. The british voice work is very well done, combined with an amazing soundtrack only adds to the amazing experience. Score 9.5/10
Issues: Besides the dates graphics, Xenoblade is a title that all fans of good RPGs should get their hands on. The price tag of $50 dollars is an investment you will not regret. What makes an RPG truly amazing is not just graphics, but a soundtrack and story that pulls you in from beginning to end. Thank you Monolith and Gamestop for bringing a timeless treasure state side.
Final Score: 9.5/10
