Xenoblade-Chronicles is one of those great games that (for some unfathomable reason) Nintendo had initially decided not to release outside Japan. Until recently that is. So, if you live in Europe, count yourself lucky because the best RPG on the Wii is finally available outside Japan, fully translated and reformatted for the European systems.

THE MUSIC WILL ENCHANT YOUR SOUL
This is the first thing that hits your senses. The music of Xenoblade reminded me of playing Final Fantasy VII years ago and being mesmerized by its music. The Prelude I can still remember. In Xenoblade, the music will range from atmospheric to epic rock, and all the shades and colors in between.
It will be a familiar companion while you travel and a strengthening presence when you do battle, greatly enhancing the overall experience. Every map has its own theme (most with day and night variations) and you will catch yourself humming them long after having turned your console off.
Sometimes the importance of the music in a game is underestimated and the focus remains on the graphics. Xenoblade is a perfect example of how essential music is in order to achieve a total immersive gaming experience.

LIVE AND BREATH IN A GORGEOUS ANIME WORLD
Now, all of us who decided to go with the Nintendo Wii, we knew that it was not the most graphically powerful console. Its strengths lie elsewhere. Having said that, Xenoblade is the most beautiful and graphically detailed game on the Wii. Ever.
Set on two ancient biomechanical Titans frozen in mid-battle centuries ago, the world is simply enormous. There are about 20 maps, almost every map is huge and it is all open to exploration.

As I dust off my wii I think about the last great RPG that I got excited about on a Nintendo console and I have to think a long way back to Tales of Symphonia which took me 7 years to complete although I wish I never stopped playing it. Xenoblade sounded amazing and was one of those games that caught my eye the first time I caught wind of it in Japan and then the exciting news that it was being released into the UK.

After over 115 hours of gameplay and 4 replacement batteries later I have to say this is a major contender for my game of the year and that includes Skyrim & Battlefield 3.

The graphics are simply stunning; it's the best looking game on the Wii console by far, not only is it great to look at on a Nintendo console but it holds up well against some of the HD games on the xbox and PS3 too. They open world is absolutely massive and reminds me slightly of Final Fantasy 12 apart from the fact you are actually running around a giant Titan. Not only is the land a joy to look at but it also has its rewards, secret area's and XP bonuses are given when a new location have been discovered along with hidden and special items.

The music is fantastic and some of the best I have heard on JRPG. I have found myself at times just walking around for a couple of hours doing nothing but exploring and still humming along with the background music without getting boring once! It really does suit the game perfectly and that includes the music when fighting which can change tempo depending on how you are doing.
The story is very strong and will draw you in from the very beginning and only gets stronger the more you progress.

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. Many attacks require you to position yourself properly for maximum effect, which adds a great touch of immersion into the battle and keeps you on your toes as the enemy moves as well, and reacting to your enemies actions is vital to achieve victory against the tougher foes. A clearly defined main quest (my only small complaint is that a handful of objectives are not shown on the map, and can lead to a few minutes of aimless searching).

Side quests..... so many side quests I gave up trying to do them all since I wanted to finish the game within my lifetime, but yeah there is just -extremely- much to do. Aside from the usual spoils of war of XP/gold/items, with every quest you complete you build 'affinity' with the quest giver NPC, and everyone related to the quest giver, as well as the quest area as a whole. With higher NPC/area affinity you can potentially open up new quests and NPC might sell you items they wouldn't offer before.

The same is true for your group members, the longer your particular setup of party has fought/quested together, the better they get along, and this has important effects on their battle moral and combat effectiveness together.

NPCs is a topic worth mentioning itself.. aside from flavor chatting, giving quests, item vendoring, a great deal of loving detail was put into them.
